Two weeks ago, an accident occurred during the nuclear tests in the Arctic Circle in Russia. The Chernobyl disaster came to mind after the government’s statement that four measuring centers had failed immediately after the accident.
Almost everyone has heard about the events in Chernobyl, at least once, even if they have not done a detailed research. An incident similar to the Chernobyl catastrophe, which can be understood as a disaster even without having to go deeper, took place in Russia and spread fear to the world.
On August 8, an explosion occurred during the nuclear missile trials at the Russian Arctic Circle. Five nuclear engineers were killed and six injured. When looked at, these figures are innocent figures according to Chernobyl, but what happens after the accident increases the severity of the event.
Moscow hasn’t shared anything about what has happened since the accident, and it keeps everything that happened after the accident a secret. What is happening that night is coming to light. This is actually the part of the event reminiscent of Chernobyl. Two days after the accident, nuclear surveillance centers in the cities of Dubna and Kirov stopped data flows. Three days later, Zalesevo near Kazakhstan and Bilibino nuclear measuring centers in eastern Russia were also silenced.

If we remember Chernobyl; after the explosion, the Soviet Union was silent. The people living in that area were watching the events from afar without knowing what happened and no one had the right information except the residents. Subsequently, a high proportion of radioactive materials were detected in the West, and the Soviet Union had to explain the incident.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, during a visit to France during the week, said that everything is under control of the leak, but everyone is comfortable to say that the events of this concealment of the people naturally created concern. In fact, one of the officials working in one of the hospitals where the wounded were removed, said health personnel were not warned about radiation. One hour later, the wounded were exposed to very high doses of radiation, and no measures were taken. The wounded were then transferred to a hospital in Moscow where radiation specialists were present. The status of health personnel is unknown.
Do you think this accident could be as serious as Chernobyl, or is it just a coincidence? Feel free to share your ideas with us in comments.
