US President Donald Trump weighed in on a mysterious explosion in Russia, noting US technology is more advanced to the ‘failed’ weapon. The failed missile explosion which has been cloaked in secrecy took place on Thursday at the Nenoska naval weapons range on the coast of the White Sea in northern Russia.



 

Trump Tweeted, “The United States is learning much from the failed missile explosion in Russia. We have similar, though more advanced, technology. The Russian ‘Skyfall’ explosion has people worried about the air around the facility, and far beyond. Not good!”



 

This is a 1st official reaction of Washington in relation with the explosion.

 

As per media report, the incident had taken place on Thursday near Severodvinsk, a town located in the Arkhangelsk region which is home to a naval base and a shipyard, the Russian Defence Ministry had said.



 

Local authorities said that sensors “recorded a short-term increase in the radiation background” at 11:50 am (local time) on Thursday when the blast took place. However, the radiation level started decreasing by 12:30 pm and returned to normal levels at around 2 pm, Rosatom said.



 

This was the 2nd accident to hit the Russian military in less than a week. At least 12 people had suffered injuries in an explosion at an ammunition depot in the Krasnoyarsk region on Tuesday.
