Two dead and radiation spike reported after rocket test blast in Russia


Explosion took place at military testing range in Arkhangelsk region, where specialists were working on jet engine. 

Two people have been killed and radiation levels have reportedly spiked after a rocket engine exploded during a test in northern Russia, in the second deadly incident at a Russian defence installation this week.

There was a sudden spike in radiation levels in the nearby city of Severodvinsk, Russia’s state-owned Tass news agency reported, citing municipal officials.

10th August 2019 - Chernobyl-Style Cover Up? Run On Iodine Pills After "Isotope Powered" Rocket Explosion In Russia

Extracts:

But there's a growing pile of evidence suggesting a major radiation emitting event has indeed occurred.

As a Reuters/VOA report stated further, "Greenpeace has cited data from the Emergencies Ministry that it said showed radiation levels had risen 20 times above the normal level in Severodvinsk around 30 kilometers (18 miles) from Nyonoksa."

Comment:

Here is the map location of Nyonoksa and Severodvinsk in Northern Russia. This indicates that the wind direction was Westerly, at the time of the explosion.

Below is the map location of Nyonoksa and Severodvinsk in Northern Russia. Reportedly Nyonoksa is where the Russian experiment rocket exploded. Severodvinsk, where the 20x background detection occurred, is east of Nyonoksa. This indicates that the wind direction was westerly, at the time of the explosion.

https://www.google.com.au/maps/place/Nyo...4d39.18022

The Russian press have played down the event, stating in one article that Finland's monitoring system did not detect anything, thus implying that the event was insignificant.

Quote from RT Article: (https://www.rt.com/russia/466238-russian...a-rosatom/)

"The claims of a radioactive cover-up have not been supported on the ground, and neighboring Finland has not registered any deviations from normal levels."

The detection evidence indicates that the wind was heading Westward away from Finland. A twenty times background, at the distance of around 30k or 18 miles between Nyonoksa to Severodvinsk, indicates that a significant radioactive release occurred.

An explosion at a northern Russian base that killed at least five people last week involved a small nuclear reactor state nuclear officials said.

The blast occurred Thursday on a platform in the White Sea off Nyonoksa and caused a reported nearby radiation spike in Severodvinsk.

State-controlled nuclear energy company Rosatom said the explosion occurred during a test of "a nuclear isotope power source" for a rocket.

Vyacheslav Solovyov, scientific director at the Russian Federal Nuclear Center, also confirmed to a local newspaper that the institute was studying "small-scale" power sources that include "fissile materials," the New York Times and Reuters reported.

Russian Military Orders Village Evacuation, Then Cancels it After Suspected Nuclear Missile Explosion That Killed at Least 5

The Russian military on Tuesday told residents of a village near a navy testing range to evacuate, but cancelled the order hours later, adding to the uncertainty and confusion fueled by a missile explosion last week that led to a brief spike in radiation that frightened residents and raised new questions about the military’s weapons program.

Initially the military told residents of Nyonoksa, a village of about 500, to move out temporarily, citing unspecified activities at the range. But a few hours later, it said the planned activities were cancelled and rescinded the request to leave, said Ksenia Yudina, a spokeswoman for the Severodvinsk regional administration.

Local emergency officials also announced after taking ground samples from around the area that they have found no trace of radioactive contamination.

After Thursday’s explosion, Russian authorities also closed part of Dvina Bay on the White Sea to shipping for a month, in what could be an attempt to prevent outsiders from witnessing an operation to recover the missile debris.

So, it was just another dirty little bomb test that still manages to be declared perfectly safe.  

‘Accidents happen, unfortunately’: Kremlin comments on fatal test of ‘Skyfall’ missile
Published time: 13 Aug, 2019 18:45
https://www.rt.com/news/466426-kremlin-m...nt-heroes/
Quote:According to Rosatom, the accident took place on board a sea platform in the Arkhangelsk region last Thursday. The scientists were working on an “isotope power source” for the experimental “liquid-propellant engine.”

The test went well initially, but then the engine caught fire and exploded, Rosatom said. Three people were injured, but several others were thrown overboard by the explosion, leaving open the possibility that they might be recovered alive. That hope faded after the search and rescue operation, after which the five scientists were declared dead.

Reports of a “radiation spike” accompanying the explosion prompted frantic speculation in both Russian and Western media, though local and regional authorities have confirmed repeatedly that radiation levels remained within normal parameters and there was no danger to the public.

Washington believes that the explosion was related to Russia’s hypersonic cruise missile program, 9M730 Burevestnik (NATO codename SSC-X-9 Skyfall). One anonymous US official told reporters on Tuesday that the explosion was not nuclear but “did involve radioactive elements.”

Quote:Severodvinsk authorities placed rescue services on high alert as measurements immediately after the incident showed background radiation levels three times above the safe limit of 0.6 microsieverts. In less than half an hour, however, they dropped back to normal – and the daily average remained within the norms, thus posing little risk for the population, city authorities said.

The radioactive cloud didn't just disappear, it drifted off, away from the metering.

— St. Petersburg’s Fontanka.ru news website quoted a video statement by one of the leaders of the nuclear center as suggesting that the blast occurred at a “compact nuclear reactor.”

— Fontanka later updated its report with a statement from Rosatom which said that the suggestion referred to “tests of a radioisotope power supply,” not a “reactor.”

“It’s a nuclear battery, just so you understand,” the state nuclear monopoly was quoted as saying.

— Vyacheslav Solovyev, one of the officials at the institute in the closed city of Sarov, said: “These developments are also actually happening in many countries. The Americans last year...also tested a small-scale reactor... Our center also continues to work in this direction.“

the biggest hurdle;   thinking that radiation measurements mean anything.

Busby; 'you and the other gentleman were talking as if radiation dose actually means something'

Code; "the danger is not in the dose, the danger is in the particular radioactive material"

To put it in perspective, what if instead of one nuclear powered missile exploding there were a thousand?  Would it seem more dangerous?   1000x  is a rough ballpark of how much more toxic internalized nuke fallout particles are, and is why dose measurements are misleading. 

The town was told to evacuate....then they were told not to.   How to tell if government and nuke industry spokesman are lying;  their lips are moving.

Here is the nearby village.   The nuclear/military/government complex destroys nature and the lives of people and other animals

Trump weighs in

"We have similar, though more advanced, technology. The Russian 'Skyfall' explosion has people worried about the air around the facility, and far beyond. Not good!"

Nobody is telling what the secretive nuclear technology is.  Putin said it has unlimited range.


It was reported that emergency workers were wearing radiation suits as they accompanied  the injured  to Moscow hospitals.

The regional emergency service statement about the spike in background radiation had been published on Thursday on the official website of the Severodvinsk city administration. By Friday, however, the statement was no longer available on the site. Asked by the news site 29.ru about the missing statement, a city civil defense official cited an unspecified technical problem; another city official said they were working on the issue.

facts of life;   all governments lie and all things break

The failed nuke powered missile, Fallsky,  is not the only recent catastrophe poisoning the Living Earth.

[Image: reuters_russia_blast_05Aug19.jpg?itok=rwFfRRum]


"arlier this week, a series of massive explosions destroyed an arms cache in Siberia, sending blast waves and plumes of black smoke into the atmosphere, and devastating nearby settlements."

"Last month, another incident involving Russia's Northern Fleet also drew criticism from Russians upset by a lack of information from authorities."

"A secretive surveillance submarine known informally as the Losharik suffered a catastrophic accident on July 2 while conducting tests in the Barents Sea. In all, 14 crew members were killed. Officials have released scant details about the sub, which is based at the Kola Peninsula port of Severomorsk, and what exactly occurred during the fire."

"During funerals for the personnel who died, one Russian naval officer made comments that suggested the incident posed a far greater danger than the Defense Ministry had indicated, saying that the crew of the vessel — which authorities eventually revealed had a nuclear reactor on board — had "averted a planetary-scale catastrophe."

Nuclear-powered submarine accidents include the K-19 (1961), K-11 (1965), K-27 (1968), K-140 (1968), K-429 (1970), K-222 (1980), and K-431 (1985) accidents. Serious radiation incidents/accidents include the Kyshtym disaster, the Windscale fire, the radiotherapy accident in Costa Rica, the radiotherapy accident in Zaragoza, the radiation accident in Morocco,the Goiania accident, the radiation accident in Mexico City, the radiotherapy unit accident in Thailand, and the Mayapuri radiological accident in India.

13th August 2019 - Deadly Explosions Aside, Kremlin Says Putin's Nuclear-Powered Missile Far Ahead Of US Technology

Quote: from article:

"The maximum reported level of radiation would be harmless and on a par with a dental x-ray, according to Jonathan Cobb, a spokesman for the World Nuclear Association. "

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/...8-accident

Comment:

This assessment was made without any information about what was in the radioactive cloud.

The radiation release was from a large explosion. This means that people exposed to this radioactive cloud as it passed through their area, would have breathed in radioactive contaminated dust and gases. Some of this material would also have been deposited as dust!

I agree Code, the external radiation dose levels reported do not represent the real health risks to the exposed populations. In a radioactive cloud event like this, the microscopic radioactive material potentially breathed in, is far more dangerous than any detected external dose level would indicate!

The 20x background detection only informs us that a significant radioactive cloud passed through. Other downwind communities would also have been exposed to this hazardous airborne radioactive material.

Russian Doctors Say They Weren’t Warned Patients Were Nuclear Accident Victims
One doctor was reportedly later found to have a radioactive isotope in their muscle tissue.

https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2019/08/1...ims-a66896

By Evan Gershkovich and Pjotr Sauer  16 Aug 19, Five hospital staff workers, including senior doctors, told The Moscow Times that FSB agents had their colleagues sign non-disclosure agreements.The three injured men arrived at the hospital around 4:30 pm, naked and wrapped in translucent plastic bags. The state of the patients made staff suspect they were dealing with something very serious. But the only information they had at the time was that there had been an explosion at a nearby military site around noon.

“No one — neither hospital directors, nor Health Ministry officials, nor regional officials or the governor — notified staff that the patients were radioactive,” one of the clinic’s surgeons told The Moscow Times by phone this week. “The hospital workers had their suspicions, but nobody told them to protect themselves.”

The hospital was Arkhangelsk Regional Clinical Hospital, a public healthcare center in Russia’s far north, and the day was last Thursday, Aug. 8. After the explosion, radiation spiked to as much as 20 times its normal level for about 30 minutes in the region’s second largest city of Severodvinsk. Russia’s state nuclear agency Rosatom has reported that the accident killed five of its staff members.

Russian authorities are keeping the circumstances surrounding the explosion shrouded in mystery. With government agencies releasing information piecemeal amid a mass of contradictions, the state’s response to the accident echoes its behavior after Chernobyl, the catastrophic 1986 nuclear accident in then-Soviet Ukraine.

https://nuclear-news.net/2019/08/17/russ...t-victims/

According to three of the doctors, two of the three patients that were treated at the Arkhangelsk Regional Clinical Hospital didn’t even reach Moscow, dying en route to the airport.
They said that security services officers who visited the hospital on Aug. 9 recovered and deleted all of the information about the incident that was in the hospital’s records.
“It’s as if the event no longer exists,” one of the doctors said. “With no documentation the staff couldn’t try to take anyone to court, even if they wanted to.”

Dont mind these dying naked men wrapped in translucent plastic bags; nuclear is harmless, no worse than background radiation.

Old news, but the Department of Energy gives your tax money to russian nuclear related developments

The US Department of Energy (DoE) is fighting to protect its ‘lab-to-lab’ collaborations with weapons scientists in the former Soviet Union 
Eighty-four per cent of its projects are associated with institutes in Russia, the remainder involving Belarus, Kazakhstan or the Ukraine. Its aim is to keep former nuclear, chemical and biological weapons scientists gainfully employed,

Kremlin: Putin fully briefed on Arkhangelsk accident, rumors of 'radioactive cloud' absurd
Sputnik
Tue, 20 Aug 2019 14:04 UTC
https://sputniknews.com/russia/201908201...--kremlin/

Quote:Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin is fully briefed on all details surrounding the accident in the Arkhangelsk region and dismissed rumours of a "radioactive cloud".

"I suggest you focus on the statements made by the president yesterday, who said that there is no danger and, all the authorities are working to prevent the slightest risk to the citizens of Russia in connection with that emergency," Peskov responded when asked why radiation monitoring stations in Kirov and Dubna stopped submitting reports after the 8 August explosion in the Arkhangelsk region.

There was no cloud?  If there was a cloud, it was a safe cloud.  Tiny amounts of radio-Iodine detected in Norway near the border of Russia.  Tracking any radioactive cloud will be impossible if the radiation monitoring stations downwind stop reporting.  Absurd way to report on a nuclear accident.

‘There's no danger. Get to work.’ Following a radioactive incident outside Arkhangelsk, Russia's military didn't warn medical staff about their contaminated patients

"...the dosimetrists showed up and started measuring beta-radiation levels. They ran out of the operating room in terror. Doctors caught them in the hallway, and they confessed that the beta radiation was off the scale"

https://meduza.io/en/feature/2019/08/22/...et-to-work

"Let's run through some of the shocking allegations here, which eerily mirror the Soviet state's mistakes after Chernobyl (though thank goodness the accident was nowhere near on the same scale). First off, the military fobbed the rescue effort off on civilians. Not only were civilian first responders called out to take irradiated victims to civilian hospitals, but a mobile radiation-chem lab equipped w/ decontamination tech was rerouted *away* from the hospital where victims needed to be scrubbed before boarding ambulances. Cesium-137 has been found on at least one doctor, but federal medical staff are blaming it on his years-ago visit to Thailand, where he supposedly “ate some Fukushima crabs.” (I shit you not.)" - Kevin Rothrock[url=https://twitter.com/KevinRothrock][/url]

Russia Changes Position On Radiation Leaks Again Weeks After Nuclear Missile Explosion

The Kremlin has admitted certain radioactive substances got released in the accident, raising new questions about what really happened.

By Joseph Trevithick  August 26, 2019
https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/29...-explosion
Quote:The new details continue to suggest the incident was related to the development of the nuclear-powered cruise missile Burevestnik, but they also raise further questions about how transparent the Kremlin is being about the scale of the accident that killed at least seven people.

Personnel from the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring of Russia, better known by its Russian acronym Roshydromet, took water samples from areas near Severodvinsk between Aug. 10 and Aug. 23, 2019, and found traces of the radionuclides strontium-91, barium-139, barium-140, and lanthanum-140, according to a statement. These substances experience fast radioactive decay and the press release indicated that the brief spike in ambient background radiation that Severodvinsk authorities reported after the missile test accident was attributable to inert gasses released as a result.

A small nuclear reactor was definitely the cause of the Russian missile engine explosion

...With that said, the isotope’s potent alpha emission renders it usable as a radioisotope thermoelectric generator (RTG). Indeed, it was used by the US space program as an energy source. It can therefore be stated with certainty that the “isotopic source of energy” referred to by Rosatom was a nuclear reactor. The advantage of a nuclear reactor is that it allows a cruise missile to move through the air for a very long time, giving it an essentially unlimited flight range.

However, the jump in radioactivity in the air near the blast site reduces the likelihood that the nuclear reactor installed in the Burevestnik missile is fueled with enriched uranium, or even highly enriched. It is therefore reasonable to conjecture that the nuclear fuel of the reactor is plutonium-239, which, in addition to being toxic, is radioactive. It is also more suitable for refueling a miniature reactor because its critical mass is five times lower than that of uranium-235, which makes it possible to reduce the reactor’s dimensions.
