On August 8, 2019, a mysterious explosion occurred at a military testing site near Nyonoksa, a village in the Arkhangelsk region of Russia. The blast killed five scientists and injured several others, and caused a brief spike in radiation levels in the nearby city of Severodvinsk. The incident has sparked international speculation and concern about the nature and consequences of the accident.

According to Russian officials, the explosion was caused by a failed test of an “isotope power source for a liquid-fuelled rocket engine”. However, some experts and media reports have suggested that the accident involved a prototype of a nuclear-powered cruise missile known as Burevestnik or Skyfall, which was announced by President Vladimir Putin in 2018 as one of Russia’s new “invincible” weapons.
The Burevestnik is supposed to be able to fly at hypersonic speeds and evade any existing air defense systems. However, according to U.S. intelligence and some independent analysts, the missile has been tested several times before and has failed in all but one occasion. The missile is also believed to pose a serious environmental and safety risk due to its radioactive propulsion system.
The evidence for the Burevestnik hypothesis includes the involvement of scientists from the Sarov nuclear-research institute, which is known to work on the missile program; the presence of a nuclear-fuel carrier ship near the site of the accident; and the resemblance of the Nyonoksa test site to other locations where the missile has been tested before. However, other experts have expressed doubts or alternative explanations for the accident, citing the lack of definitive proof or the possibility of other military projects being tested at Nyonoksa.
The Russian authorities have been tight-lipped and contradictory about the details of the accident, raising suspicions of a cover-up or a lack of transparency. The evacuation of Nyonoksa residents was announced and then canceled without explanation; the radiation levels reported by Severodvinsk officials were later deleted from their website; and the official statements about the cause and consequences of the accident have been vague or inconsistent.
The Nyonoksa radiation accident has raised questions about Russia’s military ambitions and capabilities, as well as its nuclear safety standards and emergency preparedness. The incident has also drawn comparisons to previous nuclear accidents in Russia and the former Soviet Union, such as Chernobyl and Kyshtym. The full extent and impact of the accident remain unclear, as more information may emerge or be revealed in the future.

This was not a coincidence, why at this time!!!
