    Grim-3 is apparently in an advance stage of development - they are just waiting for Congress to approve the 50bn funding required for the project.

    Already more reconstruction then NATO did in 20 years of their "successful" Afghanistan mission.

    i know what you mean, i don't know how many towns NATO wiped off the map in Afghanistan.
    Some where really desperate situations, but most where avoidable with some restraint and professional attitude.

    Also,
    NATO is not an organization that has "reconstruction" in mind....ever.
    It only destroys and put's people against one another.
    local civilians are nothing more than "collateral" to be thrown a handful of dollars at to put an legal end to it.
    Be damned their living conditions.
    NATO's only purpose is taking out all the chess pieces on the global chessboard under it's U.S overlord.

    All under this western mass-media propaganda driven disgusting, self appointed image of world-policeman and hollow, self righteous morals and values.
    It is cancer, that is due for an serious chemo-therapy course Called Russian Federation or China.
    -----

    I am really happy to see Russia is establishing such an great measure of control in civilian infrastructure.
    Reconstructing water facility's, gas, electrical, erecting housing complexes. etc.
    This is the way how it should be done, Everywhere.
    Power is not only measured in one's ability to destroy.
    But also in limiting suffering of people and rebuild quickly.
    I deeply respect Russia for this.  russia
    All the RF organisations involved do an amazing job.

    Local containment is possible if nuclear waste storage are damaged. It would be a pain in the hole to clean it all up and would tie Russian hands. Nothing apocalyptic, well for maybe those exposed in the small area, but as far as I understand, nothing like Fukushima

    It would probably take an actual bunker buster bomb to one of the nuclear vessels to actually create a nuclear disaster similar to Chernobyl. The threat of a disaster like that is being way overstated.

    Its still a really dumb idea to shell it.

    I am no nuclear expert, but neither Chernobyl nor Fukushima required the involvement of bunker busters, just wrong operational parameters or failure of ancillaries, which is pretty much what the urkonazis are trying to achieve at ZNPP. A reactor without cooling will fail, melt and create a massive contamination problem, even if it is not breached by the attack, which is also possible with the weapons available to those bastards. I don't see MoD specially relaxed about the situation, you know...

    They brought one of the trophies to Novorossysk and parked it right in front of the Kutuzov museum cruiser.

    Yes I know - there was nothing there to start with. These were constructed a couple years ago to protect the aircraft from swarm attacks and the sun.
    I won't classify them as hardened but they do look sturdy enough to handle a fairly large explosion?

    It would cover from a top attack with the use of improvised ammo like hand grenades or small caliber mortar bombs, but that's it.
    The side panels are most probably a sandwich made of steel sheets filled with PUR foam, it is an inexpensive construction panel with quite good strength parameters and can be disassembled if needed. But expect resistance of a shipping container, not more than that. Any military-grade ammo blast will just tear that apart.

    The further protect these make shift hangers the British army use to use empty boxes based on pallets that could be filled with sand, soil, small stones, and forklifted into position these were normally placed around bases but the concept could be used around these makeshift hangers. As for the roof even adding something similar to caged armour on the roof although a lot taller might offer some additional light protection for these makeshift hangers. It's not going to be as good as hardened hangers but it's quick, easy, and cheap to add, and gives better protection then they currently have until something more should gets built.

    What are you even talking about?

    So Russia isn't doing anything about it, but never mentioned exactly what they would do if those red lines were crossed...... You are aware why this conflict is happening, right? cause the US and Ukraine went over Russia's red line.

    They hit so many command and control centers (not Kiev Rada for obvious reasons) and killed so many higher ranking guys in Ukraine, its not even funny anymore (well, it kinda is).

    Attempt attacks today with now yourself and the other doofus lying about Russian airbase being hit again in Crimea.  I provided proof as to why that was actually false.

    What you just said is complete contradiction to everything that is actually happening now.  Now you come off as a smart individual so it really only occurs to me that you are trolling and nothing more.
