    Yes!  10% of the electricity in the United States comes from dismantled nuclear warheads, some of which are from Russia.  At the moment, the “Megatons to Megawatts” program is scheduled to end in 2013 because of limited availability of the resource.  Furthermore, according to the Nuclear Energy Institute, 45% of the fuel in American nuclear reactors comes from old Russian bomb material.
