Umm, it only takes one. If they sell the warhead, the Islamonazis can just smuggle it in a ship. Make no mistake, Russia is a proud and powerful country.
Russia also has a lot of oil as well. If we were smart, we'd help Russia by buying their oil and make 'ol Vlad understand that we're not too happy about them arming our enemies. Make no mistake, I think Vlad wants to resurrect their past greatness by repackaging communism but with himself firmly in charge. You could say that by buying their oil we're extending their lifespan and would allow them to do exactly that. But, if in their death throes they think they have nothing to lose, they will trade their nuclear knowledge, material and warheads for a chance to just postpone the inevitable for a day.
We need to give Vlad the opportunity to save Russia with our help but he has to make a commitment to NOT arm or help our enemies. It might also help if he realizes that our enemies (radical Islam) are his enemies.

The communists could not maintain control over Russia, neither can we via friendly trade.
Let them implode, deal with the fallout later.
It is not like we are actually being proactive today, that will come after we see a couple or so of our cities nuked.
We are living in a paralyzed nation, we will be lucky to pull off the invasion of a third world country without being politically forced into another Vietnam type defeat.
We can not even deal with Iraq, Russia is out of the question.

And the moment it explodes we'll gather up the uranium isotopes and track it down (like a finger print) back to the reactor that created it.
