Let's hope Russky Nuke Cruiser Doesn't Spring Radioactive Leak!

Russian Tech lags far behind the West's for many reasons, but lack of safety measures is a major factor. When I was in Baku, I was warned not to eat the local Caspian Sea seafood because a sunken USSR nuke sub was on the bottom 18 miles offshore and leaking toxic nuke materials into the surrounding eco-systems.

Not to mention the problems with the Kursk and other Russian-model eff-ups over the decades [I just saw among the "destroyed in seconds" Discovery Channel show a couple of Soviet Air Show disasters, sparkiing this admonitory blog].

Perhaps rather than a military threat, the chief Russian menace to the region is to Venezuela as a public health threat!
