American scientists noticed the renewal of the nuclear bunker near Kaliningrad
Under the village of Kulikovo, Kaliningrad region, a nuclear weapons storage facility has been brought into an active state, the Federation of American Scientists reports. Whether nuclear warheads are there is unknown. The Federation of American Scientists (FAS) claims that the Russian nuclear weapons repository is being updated near the village of Kulikovo, Kaliningrad Oblast. This was reported on the organization’s website on Monday, June 18.
Scientists refer to satellite images of the object. “He has all the signs of typical Russian nuclear weapons storage facilities,” FAS expert Hans Christensen said in an interview with The Guardian. According to him, the work on updating the facility began in 2016.
The specialist added that the photographs do not prove that nuclear warheads are in the bunker, but serve as proof that the object itself is active. The FAS also indicates that other storage facilities, including those based on nuclear submarines in Kamchatka, were similarly updated earlier in Russia.
Europe fears invasion of Chernobyl mutant wolves – scientists
According to the University of Missouri (USA), there is a risk that wolves from the exclusion zone around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant can spread mutated genes throughout Europe.
After people left the territory, many wild animals multiplied there, including such large predators as lynxes, wild boars and wolves.
Now the density of wolves in the infected area is seven times higher than in nearby forests. And young animals began to migrate to neighboring territories.
14 males caught and put GPS sensors on them. It turned out that one of them wandered 300 km from the dead zone for 21 days, where he could quite meet the female and pass on his mutated genes.
