"The United States has helped Ukraine sen[d] to Russia enough uranium to build two atomic bombs in a secret operation aimed at securing nuclear material. The removal of more than 110 pounds of highly enriched uranium this week followed a pledge by Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych (yah-noo-KOH'-vich) to get rid of all of his country's highly enriched uranium by April 2012."
