The illicit trafficking of nuclear and radioactive materials is a great threat for the security not only in Europe but around the world. In the past 15 years the international organizations revealed many cases of illegal trade of radioactive uranium, recorded especially in the East Europe and Caucasus region. The complexity of the problem and its impact on the international security should persuade the US government to cooperate actively with the East-European countries as well as with the European Union to decrease the threat.

Handel materiałami jądrowymi i promieniotwórczymi stanowi ogromny problem dla bezpieczeństwa nie tylko Europy, ale i całego świata. W ciągu ostatnich 15 lat ujawniono wiele przypadków nielegalnego handlu uranem, odnotowane zwłaszcza na terenie Europy Wschodniej i Kaukazu. Złożoność problemu i jego wpływu na bezpieczeństwo międzynarodowe powinna skłonić rząd Stanów Zjednoczonych Ameryki Północnej do podjęcia aktywnej współpracy z państwami regionu a także z Unią Europejską w zwalczaniu tego procederu.
