Russia's #Nuclear Agency now confirms 7 dead from its nuclear accident.

Fascinating declassified b/g on Severodvinsk: #CIA, #NRO, National Archive docs to follow here.

The announcement brings the number of deaths caused by the blast to seven wsj.com/articles/russi… via @WSJ
@WSJ For starters, where #Severodvinsk is:

"The information about the increased radiation, first published on Thursday at 14.23, was removed from the city authorities’ portal Friday afternoon and is now just a dead-link." — @NilsenThomas, The Barents Observer
@WSJ @NilsenThomas During the Cold War, Severodvinsk is where the USSR built its Typhoon class of submarine -- made famous by Tom Clancy in "The Hunt for Red October."
@WSJ @NilsenThomas The Typhoon carries 20 submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs), each with 10 multiple reentry vehicle (MIRV) warheads for a total of 200 #nuclear weapons onboard a single #submarine.
@WSJ @NilsenThomas ...Built for arctic patrols, the Typhoon was designed to quickly break through polar ice, surface, and launch enough nuclear weaponry to annihilate the United States in a single, preemptive strike.
@WSJ @NilsenThomas The first-known intelligence report that the Soviets were building this civilization-killer (its use would prompt a U.S. nuclear response in equal measure) was from --- #CIA trained psychic Joe McMoneagle, aka "Remote Viewer 001," whom I write about in #PHENOMENA.
@WSJ @NilsenThomas This👇is that declassified intel report. "Remote Viewing (RV) Sessions C47 and C53."

4 months later, in January 1980, KH-9 spy satellite images over Severodvinsk revealed the Typhoon sub that McMoneagle had already described, baffling the intel community and the Joint Chiefs.
@WSJ @NilsenThomas Today, writes @NilsenThomas, editor of @BarentsNews
"Seems like fatal missile blast near #Severodvinsk was an attempt to real-test Russia's new terrifying nuclear-powered cruise missile."
@WSJ @NilsenThomas @BarentsNews As @AndrewKramerNYT writes in @nytimes, it appears the US and Russia are heading into a new nuclear arms race. "On Aug. 2...the United States formally withdrew from one keystone treaty, the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, after accusing Russia of flouting the terms."
@WSJ @NilsenThomas @BarentsNews @AndrewKramerNYT @nytimes "We have similar, though more advanced technology."
-- President Trump
