The Andreev Bay nuclear accident

In 1982-1989, there was a large radioactive water leak at the Andreev Bay naval base, 60 km from Norway. I translated the Wikipedia article into English, it deserves to be better known.

Don~

Nice job and interesting article. I would advise you to make a copy
of the article as you have written it and the way it looks now. Then
next, keep an eye on it as others may add, alter, change or modify
it's contents over time. Such is the way of Wikipedia, especially on
an article of a sensitive nature and one that others may know more.

Another similar incident in the Soviet Union is not as well known either:

All versions remain in the article's history. Wikipedia makes keeping track of changes easy.

You should add a second map that shows a pinpointed location on
a larger scale so people can see the rest of the world in comparison.

Good deal. That northern section of Russia has a fascinating history
of the time period during and after WWI and especially during WWII.

Like what? I don't know much about it, to be honest.

There's a great book I read on the subject. While most Americans are
totally ignorant of the events of 1918-1920, the Russians did not forget
and has a lot to do with the Bolshevik mistrust of the Allied Powers then.

* * * * *

An undercover RAF squadron prepares to bomb Moscow from a makeshift landing ground in the Steppes two hundred miles from the Russian capital ...Two British regiments land at Vladivostok ... The Japanese invade Siberia with 70,000 troops ... American infantrymen fight the Bolsheviks in a bitter winter war south of Archangel ... British spies in Moscow plot the overthrow of the Russian government ...

Thriller fiction? No. These events actually happened in a little known and much misunderstood war conducted in the early years of the twentieth century. The Allied intervention began in 1918 as a desperate attempt to maintain the Eastern Front against the Germans after Russia's decision to withdraw from the First World War. But it swiftly escalated into a haphazard and often chaotic offensive against Bolshevism itself that even included the spectacle of an undercover RAF squadron steaming through the heart of Russia with its aircraft strapped to railway flatcars. Its mission: to bomb Moscow.

Christopher Dobson and John Miller have based their account of this extraordinary and neglected episode on extensive research conducted in London and Moscow. The authors are experienced and award-winning foreign correspondents, with access to archives never before opened and to diaries and letters written by the men who were players in the drama. They have also interviewed the diminishing band of surviving veterans. Among them is one of the men who was eventually refused permission to bomb Moscow because Winston Churchill, then Minister of War, ruled that there was "no military value to the operation."

The result is a fascinating piece of modern history, grippingly revealed with accuracy and detail, that overturns a number of misconceptions and untruths that have shrouded the campaign over the decades. The Day They Almost Bombed Moscow also traces the origins of much of today's Superpower antagonism back to that bizarre and half-remembered clash of arms on the savagely contested soil of Revolutionary Russia, a clash that set the pattern for East-West relations which persists, with all its dangers, today.

The Russian article on Тунгусский метеорит sure has a lot more maps
& pictures that could be added to the English version if you're interested.
