Russia’s Major Nuclear Accident
Reports are coming in that a MAJOR NUCLEAR ACCIDENT in Nenoksa, Russia last week — killing at least seven people and raising alarming radiation levels — was the result of a new type of nuclear-propelled cruise missile. Calls for citizen action requested by Win Without War.
This was the result of a new type of nuclear-propelled cruise missile. U.S. officials say that this missile system is not fully is not operational. The Russians has experienced multiple crashes, notably, a recent crash in the Russian Arctic.
The accident near the Nenoksa Missile Test Site is being compared with CHERNOBYL. That is absolutely terrifying and it is critically important the U.S. does NOT escalate the nuclear arms race even one step further.
But ESCALATING is exactly what Trump and Bolton are doing.
Days ago, Trump formally withdrew the U.S. from a landmark treaty prohibiting some of the most dangerous warheads, and now John Bolton is threatening to leave the LAST REMAINING nuclear arms treaty between the United States and Russia, known as New START.
In action after action, Trump has made U.S. nuclear weapons policy the most dangerous in a generation. Consider:
- He just pulled the U.S. out of the hugely important Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty that, since 1987, blocked the use of land-based intermediate-range missiles which — because of their extremely short flight time — could ignite an all-out nuclear war in just minutes. And already the new Defense Secretary has proposed deploying these banned missiles to Europoe and Asia.
- If that isn’t terrifyingly risky enough, Trump has made one of his signature defense priorities building Gateway Nukes — nuclear weapons DESIGNED TO BE USED in conventional wars, a horrific premise of self-fulfilling logic if it convinces the President it’s ok to use them.
- AND there are reports that Trump’s ex-White House colleagues are seeking to profit by pressuring him to ditch a critical nuclear non-proliferation rule in order to sell U.S. nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia — with absolutely no guarantee that technology won’t be used to build nuclear weapons.
Yet despite the growing threat, the world has a terrifying false sense of security right now about the risks of nuclear proliferation.
Thank you for working for peace,

Russian Defense Ministry sources acknowledged there was an explosion at the Nenoksa Missile Test Site on the coast. Arkhangelsk is a region in northwestern Russia. The accident reportedly killed two service members and injured six others. The Russian Defense Ministry said the explosion was triggered by a test of a liquid fueled propulsion engine.
TASS, Russia’s state news agency, reported that the explosion occurred on a floating launch platform off the coast.
Russia is hiding information about the Nenoska nuclear incident and its official response was secretive. This, in turn, has prompted comparisons with the Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown in 1986.
