  1. Didn’t we discuss this yesterday? https://www.reddit.com/r/worldnews/comments/c6z90s/russia_plans_to_tow_a_nuclear_power_station_to/

    The conclusion was that this was fear-mongering, especially since subs, aircraft carriers, ice-breakers etc. are all nuclear powered.

    Also, the ‘critics’ cited in the article are Greenpeace, who don’t support nuclear power in any form unless it comes from the sun, as far as I know.

  2. This is just a bad idea all in all.

    The whole structure looks like it could flip over. If cruise ships can sink due to human error.

    So can floating nuclear power stations.

  3. Why is it a floating Chernobyl? Are the Russians guilty of being cheap with buying their ~~fuel~~ control rods again? Or did they learn from their mistakes with Chernobyl?

  4. Western media propaganda is firing on all cylinders. This is CNN what CNN, a media brand that once used to be trusted is now probably worse than Fox News. What a sad state. It will be like calling a U.S nuclear aircraft carrier a ‘floating Chernobyl’. Russia has some of the most advanced Nuclear reactors in the world today. It’s very rare you’ll even hear of any issues with their VVER reactors which are operating in many countries around the world. All Russia has done is placed a reactor on a ship to allow them to provide power in remote areas. This will be no different from a Russian Nuclear powered submarine, Icebreaker or Destroyer ship, which they have literally dozens of.

  5. Well if anything goes wrong they’ll just tell the seals everything is okay

  6. There’s no way this ends badly. Not like those icecaps are doing anything.

  7. Yea because we didn’t fucked up the world enough with Chernobyl and Fukushima already. Let’s also do it in the Arctic what could possibly go wrong?

  8. the commies never cease to amaze me lol, thats crazy idea wat they doing but hey
