What's behind Russia's mysterious nuclear incident? | DW News

In Russia the Kremlin says it’s winning the race to develop cutting edge nuclear weapons, despite a mysterious explosion at a military testing site, which killed at least five nuclear scientists. Following the blast, authorities ordered the evacuation of a village close to the accident site in northern Russia, only to cancel the order hours later. Local officials had reported a spike in radiation levels in the area, while Russia’s defense ministry said radiation levels were normal. The conflicting accounts are adding to the uncertainty surrounding the incident.

  1. Back in Chernobyl they kept hella secrets and covered up as much as they could and let out as little info as possible. That's what's gonna happen again till everyone is just moved somewhere else one day told to temporarily but they wont come back

  2. Putin's Russia has NO Reason to be making hypersonic nuclear cruise missiles. — The Entire World Must go up against Putin in order to save Russia from herself. . . . . . . . . think

  3. It's a bit early to speak of a final death toll just days or weeks after a nuclear incident. That is definitely not how radiation works.

  4. Putin said 8/12/19 .THE MEGA MUSHROOM CLOUD 8/8/19 WAS BY A SMR NUCLEAR REACTOR FALLOUT WILL SPREAD TO THE CORNER OF THE EARTH AND IT WAS NUCLEAR SMR NUCLEAR REACTORS THE POWERED OF ONE ONE THOUSAND NUCLEAR REACTORS DEVELOP IN UTAH USA..

  5. Putin's Russia is a Soviet era remnant concerning the treatment of its citizens. The Russian freedom-less state is governed by a an ex-KGB agent and modern mafia style boss. Silence and closeness is his moto. An ambitious leader that benefits his own pocket with extortion money from the other oligarchs of Russia. A real mafia boss.

  6. Back in the 1970s DOCTOR SADAO ICHIKAWA of JAPAN grew a hybrid that registered a change of color from blue to pink when exposed to ionizing radionuclides. It was called the PURPLE DEW FLOWER KU7 and KU9 and was derived from the Spiderwort plant. .

  7. It's development of nuclear powerd propulsion jet engines, isn't that obvious, why all news agencies sound like they fallen from Mars yesterday and don't know anything?

  8. They can keep it secret all they want until these mutants start showing up 10 years from now with three eyes and nineteen toes. Can't cover that up. I seen a headless deer running around Chernobyl a year or so ago.
