Kyiv: Scientists have issued a severe warning that there is a possibility of a nuclear blast in the Chernobyl nuclear project in Ukraine, again after a staggering 35 years. British nuclear scientist Neil Hyatt warned that nuclear reactions have automatically started in the nuclear material in a closed area of the nuclear plant, which can culminate into a major nuclear explosion. In the Chernobyl Disaster that transpired in 1986, more than 10,000 people are believed to have lost their lives.

Arctic is a part of Russia: Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov

Moscow: ‘The Arctic is a part of Russia; it is Russian land. It has been apparent for everyone for a long time. Russia is responsible for ensuring our Arctic coast is safe. I once again emphasize that the Arctic is our land and our waters,’ the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, warned about Russia’s claim on the Arctic region. The Arctic Council Meeting is to be held on Thursday. Also, this statement before the meeting is considered a part of Russia’s aggressive policy.

The Arctic region is known as the ice-covered landmass towards the North Pole of Earth. In the form of icebergs, glaciers and sea waters, this area shares its borders with eight nations. These include Russia, United States, Canada, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Iceland. These nations, together, have established the ‘Arctic Council’.

Over the last few years, the Arctic glaciers are melting at large, opening up new trade routes. At the same time, this region has been claimed to hold massive oil, gas and mineral reserves. Thus, many other nations, apart from the Arctic nations, are eager about it. The Arctic Council meeting on Thursday is expected to discuss the matter. Against this background, Russia has caused a sensation by claiming its right on the Arctic.

Washington: – Analyst David Albright and researcher Sarah Burkhard, from the renowned US think tank, warned, ‘Iran had prepared to conduct a Cold Test of the main parts of the Atom bomb by the end of 2003. Now Iran is only waiting for the availability of the required quantities of enriched Uranium and Plutonium. If the country succeeds in acquiring this, it will immediately be able to test the nuclear bomb. In that scenario, Iran can launch a nuclear weapon even from its destroyers.’  

The Biden administration in the United States is making rapid moves to sign a nuclear deal with Iran. In this scenario, the US media is claiming that this warning issued by the analysts can exert pressure on the Biden administration.
