Serious radiation leak: in Norway, watching the drowned submarine of the USSR

The Norwegian Agency for Radiation and Nuclear Safety (NRPA) sounded the alarm about radiation coming from the Soviet nuclear submarine K-278 Komsomolets. This is the third generation nuclear submarine and the only project 685 Fin. It has been at the bottom of the Norwegian Sea at a depth of about 1700 meters since April 1989. Norwegians raised a real hysteria and talk about the level of radiation that exceeds the norm by 100 thousand times.

It should be noted that they provide several videos as proof. At the same time, however, he is modestly silent that this is a joint Russian-Norwegian expedition and the Russian side does not confirm information about such high radiation.

On board the Norwegian ship there is a deep-sea controlled apparatus capable of video recording and taking water samples. And at the crash site, many different samples were taken. One of them, allegedly taken near the reactor, showed such a fantastic level of radiation. Surprisingly, all other samples showed no danger at all.

It should be added that at the time of the catastrophe the reactor was shut off reliably, however, in the torpedo tubes there were missile torpedoes with nuclear warheads. As a result of corrosion, over the past 30 years, environmental pollution could indeed occur.

However, without the confirmation of the Russian specialists participating in this expedition, it is impossible to talk about exceeding the norm by 100 thousand times (and even because of one test). Currently, nuclear submarines are available for modern deep-sea vehicles, which makes it possible to extract nuclear weapons and other materials from it.

We remind you that the Komsomolets nuclear submarine sank on April 7, 1989. Of the 69 crew members, 22 died. The cause of the tragedy was a fire in the seventh compartment of the nuclear submarine. The cause of the fire has not been established.

    In the third campaign aboard the K-278 was the 604th naval crew of 69 people. As a result of the disaster and the death of the ship 42 people died, 27 survived.

    16 bodies of the dead were lifted aboard the approaching ships, on board died three more of the thirty rescued. The bodies of the dead were buried. The remaining 20 dead remained at sea: captain of the 3rd rank A.M. Ispenkov, as well as the watchmen of the 6th and 7th compartments: warrant officer Vladimir Kolotilin and senior sailor N.O. Bukhnikashvili - on board the ship, the bodies of three crew members , including the commander of the ship, E. A. Vanin, remained at the bottom in the VSC (pop-up rescue chamber), but most of them drowned in ice water, without waiting for the rescuers to approach.

    There, the text erroneously indicates the number of victims on the nuclear submarines, not 22 people, but 42.

    And the US nuclear submarines "Thresher" and "Scorpion" were completely destroyed at sea, along with reactors and ammunition, and everyone is silent, including Norway ....

    For a long time there was no information about Fukushima. That's where radiation goes off scale. And this, Russia has not been scared for a long time, so they remembered the nuclear submarines. Bright memory to divers!

    How could they not worry, they slipped them at the threshold of a radioactive burial ground, typical of Russia.

      I wish there were more such gifts to them, though without our victims.

    If there is a signal, you need to check.
    Otherwise, the bourgeois themselves will climb up equipment for the secret.

    In fact, the specified level of excess is not very high and does not pose any danger.
