Terrifying news has been released by the Russian government and as usual the American media is busy reporting on drunken movie stars and political idiots.
Russian authorities have announced they fear that 14 nuclear reactors dumped into the Arctic ocean by the defunct Soviet Union—some of the reactors overflowing with highly radioactive fuel rods—“could re-achieve criticality and explode” at any time.
Nuke ‘time bombs’
The risk of radioactive contamination of the waters and eventual coastlines exceeds the potential nuclear danger the U.S. exposed the world to by dumping raw nuclear waste into the sea from 1946 to 1970. The highly toxic, radioactive waste includes about 107,000 drums dumped across a region covering almost 1,400 square miles.
The potential Russian nuke catastrophe would far surpass the Chernobyl reactor accident and experts in Norway conclude such a nuclear event could easily dwarf the ongoing disaster with the four TEPCO reactors in Fukushima, Japan.
Monumental environmental disaster in the making
Western media has suppressed a potential planetary disaster that’s accelerating at this very moment.
The Bellona Foundation reports that “Enormous quantities of decommissioned Russian nuclear reactors and radioactive waste were dumped into the Kara Sea in the Arctic Ocean north of Siberia over a course of decades.” Declassified documents passed on to Norwegian officials by Russian officials reveal the extent of the danger and the potential catastrophe.
The Norwegian Bellona Foundation “was founded in 1986 and has become a recognized technology and solution-oriented organization with offices in Oslo, Brussels, Washington D.C., St. Petersburg and Murmansk,” their organization’s website explains. “Altogether, some 75 engineers, ecologists, nuclear physicists, economists, lawyers, political scientists and journalists work at Bellona.”
Despite extensive coverage of the major story in the Norwegian media, the Western press has paid little attention.
According to the Russian documents analyzed by Bellona experts, the nuclear material dumped by the former U.S.S.R. includes “17,000 containers of radioactive waste, 19 ships containing radioactive waste, 14 nuclear reactors, including five that still contain spent nuclear fuel; 735 other pieces of radioactively contaminated heavy machinery, and a (scuttled) K-27 nuclear submarine with its two reactors loaded with (highly volatile) nuclear fuel.”
Reactors can re-achieve criticality and explode
Documents confirm “…the presence of the K-27 nuclear submarine, which was scuttled in 50 meters of water with its two reactors filled with spent nuclear fuel in in Stepovogo Bay in the Kara Sea in 1981.”
The news service ENENEWS: Energy News reports that information concerning “the reactors about the K-27 [that] could re-achieve criticality and explode, was released at the Bellona-Rosatom seminar in Moscow.”
Naval nuclear waste expert Igor Kurdrik
Russian naval nuclear waste expert Igor Kurdrik affirms two K-27 class nuclear submarines now lie on the bottom of the Arctic Sea off Siberia. “This danger had previously been unknown, and is very important information. When they search and map these reactors, they must be the first priority.”
Rosatom, the Russian Federation’s nuclear agency confirmed the information is accurate and valid.

Radiation leakage also imminent
“Radiation leakages will come sooner or later if we just leave the K-27 there. The sub has already been on the seafloor for 30 years, and it was rusty even before it was sunken. Leakages of radioactivity under water are nearly impossible to clean up,” Thomas Nilsen, a nuclear safety expert who has extensively mapped radioactive waste on the Arctic seabed, told RT.com.
Bellona believes intensive salvage and clean-up operations are not only critical, but it is a desperate race against time. Both the Foundation and Rosatom agreed in a joint press release issued during February 2012 that the atomic reactors aboard the K-27 submarines could intensify their internal nuclear reactions, regain criticality, generate hydrogen gas and explode.
A sense of urgency has been expressed by officials in Moscow to the government of Norway. Bellona suspects this is because the situation is approaching a critical stage and the Russians believe it is above their capacity to resolve the crisis alone.
