The crew on a nuclear-powered Russian military submarine prevented a planetary catastrophe, according to a top naval officer who spoke at the funeral for the 14 sailors who died during a fire on the vessel.
Captain Sergei Pavlov, an aide to the commander of Russias navy, said Sunday the sailors saved the lives of their colleagues, saved the vessel and prevented a planetary catastrophe.
Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesman, said there were no signs the incident could have caused a larger catastrophe. As for the reactor, there are no problems with that, he said.
After days of secrecy about the incident, Russia confirmed late last week that the research vessel was nuclear powered, though it has refused to say what type of craft was involved. The Kremlin said that information was absolutely classified.
The craft is believed to be part of a secret nuclear-submarine project known as Losharik, according to reports, and was used to target underwater communications and cables. Russia has said the submersible was used to explore the sea bed.
Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said the nuclear reactor on board had been completely sealed off from the fire.

I read this that the sub was a fast neutron, Plutonium reactor with Sodium moderator.
Otherwise known as “Boom”
BORSCHT, PRAVDA, WODKA, TOVARICH...ok that’s all the Rooshin I know...
My paranoid mind says that a rocket carrying a warhead ignited while in tube. Sub crew probably could have let the missile out but elected not to do so.
If there had been a planetary catastrophe caused by the Russians...it would be all Trumps’ fault, anyway.
Everything is, according to the MSM.
Your explanation fits all the known claims. Very good.
And I agree that that probably isn’t the explanation—but it is as good as any.
Is this the one with transmogrification neutralizing deionizer?
The main thing is that they were able to prevent whatever this catastrophe might have been.
May those who gave their lives be remembered for their sacrifice.
reminds of this gentleman...
for those who prefer video to my previously=posted article link...
Like the poor souls who gave their lives at Chernobyl.
Color me clueless, but I assume that somewhere in the reactor room there was a button labeled ‘SCRAM’?
Whenever I read the words planetary catastrophe in this context, I immediately think of the point in time about an hour after Michael Moore consumes a half-dozen burritos and a can of baked beans.
That, and, American fossil fuel caused global climate change.
As weird as it may seem, this sub was involved in cyber warfare. Yes, the so called “cloud” involves undersea cables. This sub was capable of diving to extreme depths.
How may Soviet/Russian submarine disasters are we up to now? It has to be at least six. If their allegedly superior missiles and fighter jets are of the same quality, Russia may not be as much of a threat as the media would like us to believe.
Ok I get itt;
Ruskies want to open up : oh my G planetary catastrophe stock exchange
and tax the world ; must do it for the kiddies ;
We only have 12 yrs to renovate Ruskies nukes on subs or they will all pop
