"A hasty evacuation of diplomatic staff from foreign embassies, like a stampede, began in Moscow. Many embassies are trying to hide the evacuation for political reasons. Mass evacuation of the embassies of Cananda and Poland"

Other Embassies are in a panic to get their people out. It seems nuclear weapon
and bio warfare factories have burnt down spewing contamination into the air.

Hmm.... I wonder which way the wind is blowing.

I dunno but im not buying anymore danish raspberry jam till it stops glowing in the dark.....
Seriously though, can anybody in the know chime in to inform us on the chances of radiation spreading from chrenobyl or other ficilities that may be affected by the wildfires?
Can you actually do any real damage to eadiactive material by burning it?And would the resultant smoke be at all not convinced this isnt a panic with no basis....i think the temps involved would have to be too high for a normal fire....just sayin...

this is the first I've heard of radiation leaks.
I didn't think it was this serious until reading this
or is this just hyped or propaganda??
interesting though

I knew fire was threatening a "secret nuclear facility", are you saying that one has actually burnt down?!!? As well as a bio-weapon facility... Far out.

Got links?

Hmmmmm... I'll submit my opinion as respectfully skeptical until this is confirmed. Interesting, but very bad if it has actually happened. Hope not.

geesh!!! fires burned down nuclear missle places! NOT good at all! If thier is plague, wont be good with the radiation IF fleas n insects get contaminated then travel to households in numbers : X

according to some "expert" I heard on the radio a while back, radioactive ash is really bad news especially if it is cobalt 60 related...
Cobalt 60 amalek(sp?) he called it

So I hope this is not true

guess will have to wait for confirmation.

Russia has declared a state of emergency in Moscow and 13 other regions of the country.

The news agency Agence France-Presse reported Sunday that the dense smog has obscured landmarks such as the Kremlin towers and various city skyscrapers.

Numerous flights have also been delayed and Russian officials have scrambled to ensure the country's main nuclear research facility wouldn't be affected by the flames

just got to thinking

this incident could make Moscow
look like a ghost town if it's true.

But I haven't seen any reports from hospitals
for people with plague symptoms.

Something is sinister here

are there any public cameras in Moscow
where we can get a live feed to confirm
all these folks leaving or the fires or smoke?

Moscow doctor: ''Corpses are piled standing in basement, refrigerators are full''
Publication time: 8 August 2010, 14:40

A Moscow doctor testified in his diary about mass death of Russians in Moscow. She writes:

"All windows are open in the building; smoke is in corridors, wards, operating rooms, procedure rooms, dressings, toilets and mostly in the staffrooms - the same smoke as in the street. Windows are closed in the intensive care unit, but fumes are diminished by that, but there is a stench from bandages and defecation rotting at 40 degrees centigrade.

17 patients died in the hospital over the past day. 16 were dead a day before. 65 corpses for the past day were brought in the hospital morgue this morning - plus our "non-judicial bodies" from nearby houses. Corpses are piled in the basement in a standing position, refrigerators are already full.

Ambulances deliver a lot of aged patients with heat stroke. Under threat of dismissal, ambulance doctors are forbidden to diagnosis "heat stroke, overheating" (because we have no hot weather in our city, everything is fine).

We, too, do not make such diagnosis - we do not want to be fired, we have families and there would be nothing to feed them in that case, and we cannot do anything else but to heal the sick.

If a state of emergency is proclaimed, the medical personnel on duty is paid a double salary, but there will not be a state of emergency proclaims in our city, we are fine - and, in addition, Russia could suddenly go broke. The situation is similar in all Moscow hospitals. Except in the Central Clinical Hospital for VIPs. The distance to the Kremlin from our hospital in a straight line is at most 10 km.

Horror is happening on the territory of the hospital. I can not see the Ward # 1 from my post. There is literally nothing to breathe. The smoke is in the operating rooms. There is only one air-conditioner in the staffroom, but it began leaking the smoke. Bed-sheets on windows and fixing joints with medical plasters do not help.

Almost everybody died in the intensive care unit during the last day. In general, I understand the dead and even envy them - there are refrigerators in the morgue, but there is not enough space there, and we sadly joked this morning, asking a doctor on duty, who had come to the autopsy - "Do you still have anybody alive in your unit?".

The smoke in wards is similar to that in the street, but there are no air conditioners in the wards. If you put a healthy person for a night under the smoke, he will hardly survive by the morning, not to mention the patients.

If this is true this is the worst fatal fire I have ever heard of. OMG, what is happening worldwide?

Live video feeds? I will keep looking but here is one video report.

Edit to cut video link, I couldnt get any to come up and found several lead to other stuff.

One would hope that a secret nuclear facility would be built out of something more substantial than wood for gods sake...surely it is at least concrete and underground???

Wild and peat fires continued to spread in Russia Thursday, after the flames destroyed military facilities and caused the government to remove nuclear material from a threatened reactor.
The nuclear material was evacuated from the Sarov nuclear site in Nizhny Novgorod region, the BBC reports. At Sarov, founded after World War II, the Russian nuclear weapons program was developed, and the site is still an important nuclear research center. The radioactive material was removed in a precautionary measure due to fires creeping toward the site but officials said that Sarov hasn't been damaged.

bad fires, but so far no plague

they are saying a naval logistics base and some 200 planes are burnt
big expense
don't see bio lab news

One of the other ATS threads about the fire had a link to a video which talked about the containment around Chernobyl being old and rusted. The Russian official (a scientist I believe) had concerns about it being compromised by the fire. I guess a hot forest fire can melt away at areas where the metal is rusted? An opening in any area of that containment building would be a big, bad deal according to the Russian official. Sorry I don't have the link to the ATS thread. It was a couple of days ago.

EDIT: Way ta go, danbones! I was typing while you posted that. What a relief!

that RT video said that there were over 850
different fires raging. That is almost impossible
to be done naturally.

I believe this to be an attack on Russia !!!

How can you make 850 fires and ALSO hit the
nuclear facilities at the SAME time ???

This is SERIOUS !!!

not so much Chernobyl, but an area contaminated by Chernobyl

And it could get much worse: Emergencies Minister Sergei Shoigu warned Friday that the fires in the Bryansk region might send into the air radioactive contamination locked in soil devastated by the Chernobyl nuclear reactor accident of 1986.

"If a fire appears there, the radioactive particles could fly away with the smoke and a new polluted area could appear," he said.

Moscow region is leading in the number of wildfires registered
during the past day on the territory of the Central region; 130
hotbeds of fire were registered there.

227 wildfires are registered in just one day in the central federal
district, in particularly, 9 fires were registered in Ryazan region.
The total area of fires in the region amounts to 1,138 thousand hectares.

Meanwhile, as a result of prayers for rain, which were
organized by the KGB government-controlled "Russian orthodox
church" (ROC) , a weird infernal greenish fireball has almost burnt
down the residence of the ringleader of this "church", a KGB criminal
general Gundyayev (AKA, "Mikhailov", AKA, "Moscow patriarch",
AKA, "Kyrill").
