Nuke explosion simulator: Defense Express explains what Russian propagandists talk about

Valerii Riabykh, a military expert at Defense Express, noted that the nuclear explosion simulator was invented long ago, these technologies were available in the Soviet Union, which means that Russia has lost these developments and exhausted almost endless reserves, so they returned to old drawings

He spoke about this on Espreso TV.

"There are very scary words here - 'nuclear explosion simulator', but in fact it is a common training tool. The enemy uses this news in two ways. First of all, of course, for the purpose of informational influence that Russia is preparing for a nuclear confrontation. And secondly, that they are capable of producing such a device. It should be noted that everyone who studied at least in military schools during the Soviet era went through training using similar means. There is nothing big here," the military expert commented.

According to him, such a product is made on the basis of diesel fuel, kerosene, and phosphorus.

"The main goal is to simulate a nuclear explosion and its main factors, i.e. light radiation, shock wave and the formation of the so-called nuclear mushroom, which should be at least 1 km high so that it can be observed from a distance of up to 30 km. This simulation is done during drills to practice the actions of military in case nuclear weapons are used. The fact that they have now returned to an innovation that was invented a long time ago means that they had lost this technology that was in the Soviet Union, that those almost endless supplies had run out, so they decided to find the old drawings to make a new one," explained Valerii Riabykh.

  • On December 27, self-proclaimed President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that the supply of nuclear weapons from Russia to Belarus was completed in autumn.
  • On January 11, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev returned to the topic of the use of nuclear weapons in the war with Ukraine. He said that Moscow could take such a step if Kyiv starts firing long-range Western missiles at Russian territory.
