Russia makes frightening admission in case of mysterious submarine fire

Norway is none too pleased about the news, either.

We all understand explicitly just how shady things can be within the Russian government, but when world peace is at stake, someone, somewhere will need to learn to keep the Kremlin in check.

Just days ago, a peculiar occurrence in the Barents Sea has reiterated international concerns over the secrets of the Russian state, after it was discovered that a stealthy and secretive Russian submarine has experienced a fire, killing 14 sailors.

This is almost all of the information that has been available regarding the incident until today, a full three days after the accident itself occurred.

It has been feared that the Russian submarine was on a secret mission to survey the deep-sea cables that provide the entire world’s internet access.  Of course, knowing how thrilled the idea of meddling Russia is, it can only be assumed that this was for less than noble purposes.  With a great deal of information on the incident unavailable, we are left only with such hyperbole.

Russian President Vladimir Putin uncharacteristically provided the world at large with a bit more information today, revealing a long-held fear about the vessel itself.

Russian President Vladimir Putin disclosed on Thursday for the first time that a secret military submarine hit by a fatal fire three days ago was nuclear-powered, prompting the defense minister to assure him its reactor had been safely contained.

Russian officials have faced accusations of trying to cover up the full details of the accident that killed 14 sailors as they were carrying out what the defense ministry called a survey of the sea floor near the Arctic.

Moscow’s slow release of information about the incident has drawn comparisons with the opaque way the Soviet Union handled the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear power station disaster, and another deadly submarine accident — the 2000 sinking of the nuclear-powered Kursk, which claimed 118 lives.

Norwegian authorities have been continually monitoring for radiation since the time of the incident, but have found no alarming evidence in that regard.

Russian authorities have been reportedly scarce with information, even when asked directly by their Norwegian counterparts, adding yet another layer of mystery to the bizarre underwater saga.
