9 Former Nuclear Weapons Storage In Feodosiya

Former Nuclear Weapons Storage In Feodosiya

Posted on October 17, 2011 by


In the late 1950s, the Council of Ministers of the USSR decided to create nuclear weapons storages, which were to assemble weapons, store it, repair or issue if necessary. Kiziltashskaya Valley in Feodosiya was perfect for building one there due to the mountain chains surrounding it. These mountains were able to protect the weapons in case of a nuclear blast of ten megatons exploding at a short distance.

L. P. Beriya was appointed project manager. He was very careful in choosing the staff and personally visited many of the storages. He’s never been to Feodosiya though.

The construction began in 1951 when prisoners and best equipmet were brought here.

      That depends on what factor of life you are thinking of some things where bad yes but some things where better.No time in history is perfect there are always good and bad things.Better to look at the past and learn from it you can get something useful from a bad thing.

    The future doesn’t look good either. Fukushima is still belching out huge amounts of radiation poisoning the whole planet. We are all going to become sick and die too soon, especially if these accidents/disasters continue to happen.

  6. Archy Bunka says:

    We are creating irradiated dead zones around the planet. The scary thing is half of them are unknown, or simply ignored.
    Selling nuke plants to third world countries won’t help things. Especially when they are built on top of unstable plates. Nuclear plants are just too complex to be safe.

    So where did they take all that radio active material…? Up for grabs after the Iron curtain fell?
