Ukraine war has not led to restrictions on supply, says state company Kazatomprom The shipment was of uranium Kazatomprom owns through a joint venture with Canadian uranium miner Cameco. Courtesy Kazatomprom. Kazakhstan has completed a first shipment of uranium to Canada using an alternative route that does not cross Russian territory.

State nuclear company Kazatomprom, the world’s largest producer and seller of natural uranium, said the shipment was of uranium it owns with the Inkai joint venture with Canadian uranium miner Cameco.

The Trans-Caspian International Transport Route was originally developed in 2018 to mitigate the risk should the usual primary route via St Petersburg in Russia be unavailable.

The alternative route was developed because the Port of St Petersburg was temporarily unavailable to some categories of nuclear material when the city was to host football matches as part of the 2018 World Cup.
