Today was the 19th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster.
Chernobyl April 26, 1986
So with that in mind, and other nuclear disasters relating specifically to Russian submarines, think about this recently floated proposal . The St. Petersburg Times reports that Alexander Rumyantsev, head of the Federal Nuclear Power Agency, or Rosatom wants to help the West dispose of its old nuclear subs.
Idle Russian Nuclear Submarines.
The Russians decommissioning and disposal of nuclear submarines has concerned the West for years. But now they think they can make money off the West (Russian Capitalists?) with lower costs and higher efficiency.
Never mind the classified technology concerns, their previous safety record makes me think "That's one Crazy Ivan!" proposal.
