Radiation leak in Russia after huge explosion at ballistic missile testing facility
Quote:[Image: GL-MAP-RUSSIAN-MISSILE-2.jpg?w=620]


A HUGE explosion at a ballistic missile testing facility in Russia has killed two people and started a radiation leak.

A further four people are said to have been injured.

The two people that died were civilian specialists while those who were injured were a mix of civilians and military personnel.

The military unit where the fire occurred is located in the village of Nenoksa, near Arkhangelsk, where ballistic missiles are tested for the Russian Navy.

The blast at the military training ground near Arkhangelsk was due to a jet engine exploding, the press service of the Ministry of Defence said.

A source told RIA News in Russia: "Hospitals in the Arkhangelsk region are ready for the possible reception of the victims of the incident near Nenoksa."

Russian officials initially tried to play down the radiation leak, saying the levels were normal.

A statement from the ministry said: "During testing of a liquid jet engine an explosion and combustion of the product occurred.

"As a result of the event, six defence ministry officials and developer company representatives received injuries of varying severity. Two specialists died from their injuries.

"There have been no harmful chemicals released into the atmosphere, the radiation levels are normal."

But regional authorities later admitted there had been a "short-term" spike in radiation levels after the explosion.

The Russian city of Arkhangelsk is the north-east of Russia and was once the country's main seaport until 1703.

Last Monday a massive fire erupted at a military ammunition depot near Achinsk in eastern Siberia's Krasnoyarsk region.

The blaze triggered a number of explosions that continued for around 16 hours, leaving one person dead and injuring 13 more while more than 16,500 people had to be evacuated from their homes.

Earlier this year 14 people were killed during a fire on a Russian submarine which was a nuclear spy vessel thought to be on a secret mission.

In 2107 a mysterious radiation cloud covered Europe. It was recently tracked back to a Russian nuclear facility. Russians not the best at admitting screw ups.

RE: Radiation leak in Russia after huge explosion at ballistic missile testing facility
Other than an assload of now aging, decaying nukes, Russia really is a 2nd-3rd world mess parading like a Homecoming queen.

Problem is, the football game and dance were 30+ years ago and the make-up is starting to run. That and they lost the game. Badly.

Why am I thinking of the HBO show Chernobyl right now?

The map doesn't make it look like that would be considered NE Russia (maybe NW Russia?). I wonder what the article means what it says...

Not good for a screw up prone nuclear power.

RE: Radiation leak in Russia after huge explosion at ballistic missile testing facility
So far, this episode seems to be of a smaller magnitude than Chernobyl. But the basic impulse towards lies/denials/coverups by the Russian authorities is the exact same now as when the Soviets were trying to conceal the reality of Chernobyl back in 1986.

The only difference is that back then, most of US media eagerly accepted Soviet explanations at face-value and portrayed the situation in the most sympathetic light possible. Now, of course it’s the exact opposite.

Damn, I was going to ask you for tips on stocks and horses.

Stocks and horses? Man, you are such a greedy Independent.

I wanted to know when WWIII would start so that I can buy a bomb shelter.
