On March 11 in Vienna, Russia and the USA will sign an agreement, according to which the USA will provide financial assistance to Russia in closing three Russian nuclear reactors that produce plutonium for weapons, Russian Atomic Minister Alexander Rumyantsev told journalists today after his report in the State Duma.
