“According to the information received from the Global environmental monitoring network, the South China sea recorded an increase in the level of background radiation in connection with the radiation incident. It is strengthened monitoring of the radiation situation in the adjacent border areas.”
– According to the newspaper Ryukyu Simpo, on Monday evening, a resident of the Japanese island of Miyako found a cylinder on the shore with the inscription “uranium fuel rod.” The Governor of Okinawa Prefecture, Dani Tamaki, appealed for help from the self-defense forces. On Tuesday morning, the military arrived at the site made measurements of radiation, but the increase in the radioactive background was not recorded. In the media earlier also began to spread allegations of an explosion in the South China Sea.
– Excess radiation levels were recorded in Vietnam, Taiwan, and China.
There were two explosions. One at 17: 10. An underwater vehicle exploded. Whose is not clear. All disowned. The radiation spot is. Second explosion East of Japan. At 18:22 on the power a little weaker than the first. There’s no radiation. But there is a huge black spot in the ocean at the site of the explosion. What exploded is not clear.
More interesting. Today, all Chinese naval bases are empty. Everything that can swim has gone to sea. All the submarines went to sea today. That indirectly devours an extraordinary incident. The media was ordered to be silent.
– By the way, there before ships passed near the disputed Islands. China was unhappy.
Analysis of radioactive contamination products allows to accurately diagnose the source.
The power of the underwater explosion was about 10-20 kilotons. According to sources, the earthquake is ruled out. An explosion of such force could cause serious damage to the submarine, forcing it to enter port for repairs. The waters of the South China Sea are of strategic importance: approximately 40% of world trade traffic passes through these sea routes, as well as through the Strait of Malacca, and up to 80% of Chinese oil and gas imports are transported. Several States claim separate groups of Islands located here. Thus, the ownership of the Spratly archipelago is disputed by Vietnam, China, Malaysia, the Philippines and Brunei, the Paracel Islands – China and Vietnam, Scarborough reef – the Philippines and China.
China regularly demonstrates the increased power of its naval forces in the area of the disputed Islands. For example, in 2016, the Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning passed through the Bashi Strait and entered the disputed waters of the South China Sea, passing near the Pratas archipelago, which is under the control of Taiwan.
Also, Hal Turner Radio Show, citing data from the global environmental monitoring network uRADMonitor, notes that “significant” radiation readings are recorded on the map. As indicated by the radio station, in the area of the incident are serving submarines of the US Navy.
