Two dead and man-made radiation spike RUSSIA

The National Interest•October 11, 2019
Key point: Moscow’s deadly weapon is pointless but is still apart of mutually-assured-destruction.On May 22, 2018, the Russian submarine Yuri Dolgoruky slipped beneath the waves of the Arctic White Sea. Hatches along the submerged boat’s spine opened, flooding the capacious tubes beneath. Moments later, an undersea volcano seemingly erupted from the depths.

Amidst roiling smoke, four stubby-looking missiles measuring twelve-meters in length emerged one by one. Momentarily, they seemed on the verge of faltering backward into the sea before their solid-fuel rockets ignited, propelling them high into the stratosphere. The four missiles soared across Russia to land in a missile test range on the Kamchatka peninsula, roughly 3,500 miles away.

You can see the launch sequence in this video.

In the framework of the Russian Research Reactor Fuel Return (RRRFR) Program, US DOE and Russian organizations have developed the first Type C cask to ship by air research reactor spent nuclear fuel.
TUK-145/C can be used for future shipments of:
research reactor spent nuclear fuel
spent fuel assembly fragments of power-grade reactors for research
high-level radioactive waste for storage and disposal
encapsulated radionuclide sources
core of the Miniature Neutron Source (research) Reactor for reprocessing
liquid spent nuclear fuel
emergency shipment (during a war, extreme meteorological events, etc.).

The missiles' nuke reactor went critical when removed from the water

The reactor exploded Aug. 8 off the coast of the northern Russian town of Nenoska, killing seven Russians on a barge in the White Sea as they were overseeing the recovery of a sunken Skyfall. The missile had been sitting on the seafloor for about year after a failed flight test, said State Department official Thomas G. DiNanno.

“The explosion was caused by the Skyfall experiencing a criticality accident, an uncontrolled nuclear reaction that released a burst of radiation while Russian personnel retrieved it from the seafloor,” Mr. DiNanno said in an interview with The Washington Times.

Another official described Skyfall as a “flying Superfund site” — a reference to places the Environmental Protection Agency designates as hazardous waste sites that pose a risk to human life.

“From what I understand, the actual radiation cloud was not dangerous per se,” Mr. DiNanno said


Thats their conundrum;  they have to make nuclear seem both safe and dangerous at the same time.  Poor guys
