After 4 days, Putin discloses top-secret sub was hit by fire

President Vladimir Putin disclosed for the first time on Thursday that a top-secret Russian military submarine was hit by a fatal fire on Monday. It was also confirmed to have been nuclear-powered when Putin asked Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu to assure him that its nuclear reactor had been contained. Shoigu replied that the reactor was completely isolated and unmanned and remained in complete working order. The fire had erupted in the submarine’s battery compartment, the minister said.

    If it was an accident I can see the emergency Gov meeting in Russia, but why the meeting in the WH, why Pence’ NH trip was nixed ? Is the US somehow involved in the “accident” ?

      Rumor that a US sub caught the “research” vessel cutting underwater communications off the coast of Alaska and fired on it. The deep submersible’s armed mother ship then sunk the US sub. Awaiting word of loss of a US sub due to an “accident.” You can hide the loss of a submarine but you can’t hide the loss of all those husbands and fathers. Gotta explain it somehow.

        Has there any further information leaked out? DEBKA was the only page reporting a sub fight. I wondered about the behavior, too.

    Why does a nuclear submarine have a battery compartment?

      back up power. The battery can run the ship. The reactor can run the ship. The reactor can recharge the battery.

      Standard on any submarine in any Navy. Even nuclear powered. Utilizing the concept of redundant power sources. Subs will have nuclear, diesel and battery.

    Potential for a nuclear disaster at sea is a potential problem for US security. Any such incident would provoke the interest of any government with global security responsibilities.

      At sea is the best possible kind of nuclear accident. The ocean hides and consumes it.

    Putin has confirmed a number of very high ranking officers in the crew. Way more than should be. Sub was up to something fishy. You can bet the US was right their watching and listening.

    Russian task was possibly to install their hardware onto our comm lines to inject false data into the network in event of war, and to eavesdrop onto all data transmitted via that channel. Interesting that Putin met with the Pope today, one day after the incident. And yeah, Pence ordered back to DC is huge. He most likely went directly to the Situation Room. I’m skeptical that a US sub was sunk, though. There would be some serious search/rescue operation going on by now, which requires the deployment of lots of men and equipment. No notice of that from here in South Texas. Maybe the US sub, if there was one, hith the Rus sub with a hammer just to nudge them off task. Or even rammed them. But its not over. The Pope has some say-so in this, and I think it circles back around to Iran. There is some major wheeler-dealing going in Moscow, the Vatican and DC.

    Something is off.Electricity generated from its nuclear rector is the main source of electrical and propulsion power for the submarine, but a battery, as a source of power, is required during emergency opera? ions. What Emergency?Were they under fire from another Ship?Were they sinking?I show multiple contrails all moving towards Alaska after Midnight July 1-2.Why was FLOTUS sequestered in the white-house (underground). Why did POTUS and VP make statements that “You will find out in a few weeks”? Why did Pence’s plane take off after VP went back to white house?Who was on it and where did they go? Designated Survivor? Colorado? Why would Putin consult the pope?Why are we hearing so much about Alien UFOs lately? Was something on the ocean floor that Russia and US wanted enough to fight over it? If Putin and Trump didn’t go to war Losses must be equal. If Russia and the US went after the same thing;who has it now? Did the subs have Auth to fire or did Putin Trump find out after? Too many questions with no answers.

      perhaps another deep state element was destroyed no matter which country.
      also when pence was recalled it was a procedure in case of attack.
      there were snipers on the Whitehouse and Jeb Bush was posting about the history of presidents being taken out on the forth.
      these people are pure evil. time to rid the planet of the satanic fellows.

    Hey Debka, what happened to YOUR “reporting” that a USN attacked the Russian Sub & a Russian ship attacked the US Sub ?
