I am surprised that no one talked about this yet.

I've heard of this nuclear blast a couple of days ago, I came across this clear video of the blast: https://www.facebook.com/SkyNewsArabia/ ... 940875737/

Here's more new on the incident: https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/08/ ... 30755.html

The video is saying that the nearby village who witnessed the blast rushed to buy Iodine pills which gone out of stock there in hours.

I’ve seen some mention of it on BBC news. But the general Russian reaction seems a bit slow. Like you said, individuals rushed out to get iodine, but the government is only now measuring the radiation levels.
I’m surprised Trump hasn’t been tweeting about it.

It is such an unsurprising bit of news (coming from Russia, of course) that not even The Media is in a panic over it.

But if this was to happen anywhere in America, you can be certain that America-bashers would be all over it like maggots on manure.

:eew:

Nuclear engineers killed in rocket explosion? Were they trying to build a nuclear rocket?
