This annual report summarizes the activities and accomplishments of cooperative threat reduction and nonproliferation programs conducted in the Russian Federation, other former Soviet states, and around the globe by the Departments of Defense, Energy, and State.
Progress reports issued by the aforementioned departments in their annual budget requests to Congress are the primary sources of information for this report. Updated data published in press releases, public websites, and other sources have been included when possible. Accomplishments for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are not included in this year’s report because they were not published in DHS’ FY 2013 budget request.
