EXCLUSIVE: Nuclear Explosion in Ukraine

At least one nuclear weapon "cooked off' during the massive Ukraine munitions depot explosions, this is the story behind it

[Editor’s note:  There is always the desire for fetzerian types to find something dramatic but fictional that will encourage readership and inspire conspiracies.  As a non-commercial news organization, VT would like to entertain but has chosen to resist.  Thus, when the opportunity came up, we kept silent on what we saw in Ukraine until Jeff Smith, the real professional, met with other nuclear physicists, and came up with a theory.  

Remember, this is a theory based on very real expertise in nuclear fission/fusion and weapons detection and, moreover, a history of working in nuclear non-proliferation with Russia/Ukraine/Iran and others during this period.

We assert that a nuclear weapon went off in Ukraine and more than one may have “fizzled.”  Our expertise indicates that this is possible and expert observation says at least one device went critical.

Our knowledge, based on CIA and IAEA access at highest security levels gives us the reasons listed below which we assert.  This is not proven but were we to fail to “assert,” it would be worse than not stating what we know.

Either way, we have nothing to gain.  Enjoy the ride… Gordon ]


…by  Ian Greenhalgh and Jeff Smith

As Jim Dean reported earlier this week, there was a spectacular series of explosions at an ammunition dump in the Ukrainian city of Balakleya, in territory held by the Kiev government.

Powerful explosions at military ammunition depots in Ukraine

The cause of the holocaust has been attributed to sabotage and the finger of blame has been pointed at Russia, however as of yet, no evidence of sabotage or Russian involvement has been forthcoming.

Our sharp-eyed nuclear weapons expert Jeff Smith studied the video footage of the explosions and noticed what we are certain is a nuclear explosion.

The nuclear blast can be seen at 2:17 in this video:

The same blast can be seen from a different angle at 3:54 in the following video:

While we are certain this was a nuclear detonation due to the classic daytime white-out flash bang and shockwave followed by mushroom cloud, we do not know if this was a deliberate detonation or some stored nukes were set off by the other ammunition exploding.

In the still frame below, you can see the plasma rain falling from the rising mushroom cloud, a clear sign this was a nuclear explosion.

Ukraine is supposed to have given up all of it’s nuclear weapons in the 1990s, however we have good reason to believe that Ukraine illegally possessed SS-21 short range tactical nuclear missiles.


OTR-21 Tochka (SS-21 Scarab)

Below are two examples of pieces of SS-21 missile wreckage that has landed near the ammo dump after ‘cooking off’.

Gordon and Jeff reported in January that Tom Countryman had been fired from the US State Dept.:

IAEA Source: Trump Fires Accused Israeli Nuclear Spy, Tom Countryman

We believe that Countryman was covering up Ukraine’s illegal possession of tactical nukes. Perhaps Russia did sabotage this ammunition dump in order to destroy Ukraine’s nukes, if so, it looks like Trump gave Putin the green light on this one.

There is a backstory here as well.  It is said that Iran went to Ukraine after 9/11 and purchased a nuclear capability.  Iran needed “temporary insurance” while its existing nuclear weapons program was years from a successful test, a program the CIA has categorically stated was dismantled in late 2003.

Iran sought, the story goes, the ability to vaporize an American carrier battle group with a Russian/Ukranian 550KT thermonuclear weapon. We had been given evidence of the sale and transfer some years ago, but evidence can be faked. We had also been given evidence that Iran had the devices but sought, by 2007, to rid themselves of the liability of having nuclear weapons.

The rationale for the Bush/Blair sexed-up dossier that led to the attack on Saddam and the murder of Dr. John Kelly was the assertion that Iraq had purchased/stolen 3 South African nukes that disappeared from British custody in Oman in 1990.

If you don’ t know this story, see what you can find “out there.”  If you find nothing, we will dig it up and retell it.

    The SS-21 uses a 1960’s era second generation solid core warhead design. These first and second generation weapons all produce the classical white flash at detonation due to there design. However the newer 4th and 5th generation weapons use a different design based on the boosted fusion fission process that is totally different from the 60 year old classical solid core design. This is what was used in Yemen. There is no or very little white flash in this type of design because it is a enhanced radiation weapon or basically a neutron bomb. There optical flash is moved higher up in frequency into the UV / x-ray wavelengths so you or the cameras sensor will not see the effect. The camera has a Ir / UV band pass filter on it that blocks detection of these wave lengths. Scintillation only occurs if the Gama-ray neutron flux density is high enough and the camera needs a plastic lens to detect it. Quarts glass lenses will block the effect. The color of the plasma fire ball will tell you what type of fissile material was used, either PU or Uranium. All plasma fire balls will range from dark red to orange yellow in color depending on fissile material content, the semiconductor core doping material used and outer tamper reflector material design, such as depleted uranium, iron, aluminum or beryllium. Plasma rain turns into fallout when cooled.

    Why is Moscow silent about this atomic bomb going off?!

    Will not the Talmudic mass media use the silence of Moscow against it, if they did not fear a blowback from the Western public reacting against Kiev and its backers?

    Putin, his government and their total sum of institutions sometimes baffle me at how retarded they are, yet, at other times clever or even brilliant. Concistency will come when the Kremlin orders its total sum of institutions to study the spirituality of esoteric organizations and takes all of their enemys ideas to be the Truth – for its enemy sertainly think so and thus is.

    Know the spiritual realm of your enemy for there is no modernist (Liberal) dicotomy between material ontology and spiritual ontology.

  3. JohnRaven  March 26, 2017 at 1:22 pm

    Well, why was there no white out in the Yemen videos?

    We could only see pixelation in the videos.

    I could see the white out in the Ukraine video, but not in the Yemen videos.

    Is there an explaination for this unusual effect?

  4. Ariana  March 26, 2017 at 12:37 pm

    VT reposrted Last year that the KHM had stolen nuclear material out of recommisioning center in Texas and hide this material in Major cities of the world, a kind of Samson option or false flag operation or even revange act ! It was a colorfull mashroomfull and spiliters were rocketed high sky , so it was all possible explosive ! For approval we can wait a few time to see howmany ukraainian have baby boys and how many abourting and other diseases ! Such a storage can be hited by beaming pulses microwaves and you call it EMP, tesla coil !

    Specially trained commando teams directed outside of any country should search out any and all accessible nuclear weapons on the planet, in all countries, disarm them and bury the remains with a portable cement plant to render them useless for human and earth destruction. Exploding them in place is far too dangerous. Computer controlled robots could possibly aid in this endeavor. This is an example of how secret agencies like the CIA could aid humanity for a change.

    • Ariana  March 26, 2017 at 12:24 pm

      For sure we start with Domino Desert in Hellaviv and USA simoulteniously with other WMD from A- Z classes !

    • Reefer Man  March 26, 2017 at 7:33 pm

      And before you know it we have specially trained commando teams directed outside of any country who taken control of all the nukes on the planet. How could that possibly go wrong?

  6. joetv  March 26, 2017 at 8:24 am

    John I looked for the pixel distortion too. Maybe because of the distance between camera, and the event prevents it. Oddly there is always someone with proper equipment to “record ” such moments. The photographer must have been over a kilometer from the explosion. It would be a proper report if this fact was given.

    • Trakkath  March 26, 2017 at 8:41 am

      maybe they paid attention at the begiining of the firework and had their cellphone available and per coincidence they watched the right moment. It looks like it had already burnt for a while.There are other videos out from car cams driving in that direction. Just guckle for it

    • kaho  March 26, 2017 at 10:07 am

      Speed of sound is ca. 340 m/s, and from the big conflagration to the boom, it took roughly 9 seconds, which gives you around 3 km.

      I also located the watertower you see in the line of sight from the balcony. I think I also saw it in the aerial video. Then I tried to find the same location in Google maps, which was a bit more difficult. But I think it must be a very big canal that surrounds the area. It certainly was a very big fireball. But it seems to me that an exploding storehouse of dynamite would also look like that. (Or a smuggler’s storehouse of cigarettes 🙂

  7. JohnZ  March 26, 2017 at 7:43 am

    Somehow, someone needs to get in there and check for any residual radiation that would definitely prove a nuke but as Jeff Smith relates, he has all the evidence of such.
    Watching the video was frightening to say the least as America has numerous such stockpiles around the country.
    Lots of ordinance launching into surrounding neighborhoods. Hope nobody was hurt.

    • Amelius  March 26, 2017 at 12:09 pm

      “Lots of ordinance launching into surrounding neighborhoods. Hope nobody was hurt.”

      That was my immediate thought, as well.

  8. JohnZ  March 26, 2017 at 7:29 am

    Totally mind blowing!

  9. Andrew_Bukanov(Russia)  March 26, 2017 at 4:13 am

    It is not nuclear. Smirnoff and Winston.

    • Trakkath  March 26, 2017 at 5:28 am

      If they say it is on VT you can be sure that they checked out all facts first by nuke experts they have at hand.

    • JohnZ  March 26, 2017 at 7:28 am

      Trakkath, indeed yes. They also have a well known Russian nuclear expert on board as well. Hope they can contact him for confirmation.
      Andrew, Smirnoff and Winston may have been involved. From the videos I’ve seen of ammo dumps going up, in former Soviet bloc states, it appears security and safety protocols are being ignored , safety protocols especially. doesn’t take much……carelessly tossed cigarette into a trash can filled with oil or solvent soaked rags and presto!
      If you want to see another example of carelessness, check out the 1988 PEPCO explosion at Henderson, Nevada, where 6-8 million pounds of ammonium perclorate exploded, measuring 3 a and 3.6 on the Richter scale 600 miles away. A/P is used as an oxidizer for rocket fuel ie: the space shuttle.

  10. kaho  March 26, 2017 at 3:05 am

    There is a color scale contained in the photos, which stems from the tiny water droplets that reflect the solar light. ( white clouds consist of tiny water droplets )

    As is well known to photograhers, there is such a thing as « the color temperature of light » ; i.e. evening light is « colder » than noon time light, where « colder » means more redish.
    We also know that the color of wood fires is redish-orange to yellow, which gives a typical indicator of the plasma- or flame temperature of the reaction of hydrocarbons with the oxygen of the air. But I also know that such temperaatures may be raised within structures such as blast furnaces.

    But here I am only sketching a possible path for further exploration of the information contained in the available videographic photos. Also keep in mind the book title « Heller als tausend Sonnen » (brighter than a thousand suns).

  11. Jeff Smith  March 25, 2017 at 10:32 pm

    Plasma rain only occurs on the surface of the sun or in nuclear explosions due to strong magnetic fields produced within the plasma fire ball. Conventional molecular explosions cannot do this do to the lack of an internal magnetic field. This is what produces the so called EMP pulse. Scintillation of a video camera sensor will only produce pix-elation when at close range or of sufficiently high levels. At this distance they were safe. White out or nuclear flash occurs because the neutron/Gamay-Ray pulse that is emitted during the first few seconds of the blast emits a white light that is brighter than the sun instantly flash blinding you and the camera. If its a surface burst most of the radiation will go up and not out horizontally. If it was inside of a building or a bunker you may not see the flash at all depending on your location and blast size. Fizzle yields will be slower to detonate and of a darker color due to inefficient neutron multiplication and contaminants introduce into the plasma fire ball. These were fizzle blasts from small warheads cooking off.

    What does the ‘plasma rain’ image have to do with the above vids in Ukraine?

  13. JohnRaven  March 25, 2017 at 4:12 pm

    I could see the white flash, but there were no white pixels like the ones one could see in the Yemen videos some time ago.

    • kaho  March 27, 2017 at 7:01 am

      We need to explain what really happened with the video exactly at the time of the sonic boom (2:17)
      I downloaded the video and looked at it frame by frame with VLC.
      There are 46 missing frames exactly at the time of the boom.
      What is the expiation for that? It is urgently needed.
