Mysterious Radioactive Cloud Over Europe Hints At Accident Farther East

Unread post by scole of TSBT » Sat Nov 11, 2017 1:38 am

So what's the scuttlebutt on this in the UK? https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way ... rther-east

Is this a serious topic over the pond or is this "not fake news but spun up to create controversy for the current US president"?

First I've heard of it!
It's entirely plausible the there's a cover up if the Russians are involved.
I'll do some reading I think

I doubt that it's fake news - the tone is way too measured and non-sensational. Just rather minor news possibly?
The BBC haven't covered it but there is some coverage in The Telegraph & the Guardian & Reuters give it a mention.
It's obviously not another Chernobyl or even a Three Mile Island & you wouldn't expect the Russians or Kazaks to be upfront about anything.
Maybe Alex Salmond will cover in in his first broadcast for Russia Today? Or maybe not.
