1) «Barchenko’s expedition, nuclear explosions in Khibiny and Chivruay Pass incident are all links of the same chain.» (an article in Russian language)
2) «Mysteries of the Kola Peninsula. Nuclear war in Khibiny? Project Dnepr. Memories of an eyewitness.». (a video in Russian language)
Both information materials are connected by one topic – the Kola Peninsula, and the mysteries that surround it. As the name suggests, the article (first link) touches upon three different topics at once. The video (second link) focuses specifically on the «nuclear tests» in the Khibiny mountain range, codenamed «Dnepr». Although all of the mentioned topics are interesting, I will focus your attention only on one of them, namely the Dnepr project, which is discussed in more detail in the video.
You should also understand that there is no way I can verify this info, as almost all of it is presented in a style of either an eyewitness’ report or an urban legend. So take it with a grain of salt. I personally found it curious, and hope that you will find it curious too.
IntroductionFirst, let's take a brief look at who Barchenko was, why he went to that expedition, and how it is connected with the subsequent «nuclear tests».
Alexander Barchenko was born in 1881 in the Russian Empire. It is known from open sources that from his youth Barchenko was interested in various occult knowledge, as well as in the search for traces of old civilizations. He was also very interested in parapsychology, and everything that was associated with paranormal phenomena, which is reflected in the subject matter of the articles that he published in scientific journals of that time:
Fragments of A. Barchenko's article from the journal «Nature and People», № 31 and № 32, 1911. The articles talk about the «transmission of thoughts over a distance.»
After the October Revolution, he got a job at the Bekhterev Institute, the oldest research and clinical institution in Russia, organized for the scientific development of psychology, psychiatry, neurology and other disciplines that study the human psyche. This institute also conducted various parapsychological experiments that were very interesting to the OGPU, a predecessor of NKVD and KGB. At some point, Barchenko began working for a special department of the OGPU, under the leadership of a certain G.I. Bokiya. Occult and paranormal phenomena were one of the areas of work of this department.
At the OGPU, Barchenko was engaged in hypnosis, telepathy, astrology and other similar things. Subsequently, he became a scientific consultant to the «Glavnauka» (some kind of state department, related to science), as well as a head of the neuroenergetic laboratory of the All-Union Institute of Experimental Medicine, supervised by the same organization.
One of Barchenko's main projects was the search for traces of disappeared civilizations (one of the sources that I came across even said that they were interested in finding «magicians» who secretly control the course of world history). Apparently, all secret and closed organizations were engaged in such research at that time. In the early 1920s, Barchenko managed to organize an expedition to the Kola Peninsula, in search of traces/heritage of Hyperborea – the ancestral home of mankind. But a more practical and concrete task was the study of the strange phenomenon called «мерячение» (from Russian it can be roughly translated as «state/experience of illusion») that manifested itself in that area. This phenomenon made people feel like they are under hypnosis – people who found themselves in the area of its action experienced strange visions, or completely lost their minds. Thus, the OGPU had enough reasons to organize an expedition there - whatever they were to find there could be reverse-engineered into useful technologies, such as psychotronic weapons to subdue consciousness.
Most of the available sources say that the expedition found many traces of some ancient civilization, including various megalithic artifacts, underground passages, as well as a small settlement of local residents who told unusual legends about their past.
Although these people were also to some extent the surviving descendants of the people of the old world, they are not the survivors that I mentioned in the title.
Some sources, that I came across, also had the following information: one of the underground passages, that the members of the expedition tried to penetrate, had a strange «defense system», which made people feel severe fear/panic when trying to enter the tunnel and go deeper. Unfortunately now it is impossible to check whether this is true or not, but personally I am inclined to believe that this is true (because I have already heard about such defense system, but in another place, namely in Mount Kailash). Apparently, it had a certain generator/emitter of waves of a certain frequency, which affected the brain/consciousness.
Be that as it may, if you wish, you can independently find more detailed information about this expedition. There are quite a few facts in this article (It is in Russian, but you can use Google Translate). The truth is, nobody knows for sure what they found there. Because the most interesting finds made during the expedition were classified. Barchenko himself was shot for high treason in 1938, and apparently, the reason for this was that he knew too much.
But how does this all relate to the nuclear tests in that area, carried out 50 years later? It turns out that the phenomenon of «мерячение», mentioned a bit earlier, disappeared right after the completion of nuclear tests (though, this information can not be verified). At the same time, this zone was opened for tourists and researchers (previously it was a prohibited one).
Either way, there are many more odd facts and rumors surrounding this place, which all indicate that everything was not as simple as we are told (as usual). One of such pieces of info was presented by a person named Alexander Osipov, who is a real eyewitness of the Dnepr Project nuclear tests. Further on you will read a translation of the video from the second link, which tells the story of Alexander.
The story of the eyewitness
In the late 1960s, Alexander studied at the Leningrad Mining Institute in Kirovsk and then worked there in one of the branches of the USSR Ministry of Chemical Industry.
It was 1970 when he first found out about the planned nuclear explosion in Khibiny (inside the Kuelpor mountain). Everyone in the city talked about it. He notes that three years prior to that, there was a similar nuclear explosion near Almaty, but it was not successful (as far as he knows). According to the eyewitness, at that time no one in his city knew that the Kola Peninsula was within the radius of negative impact and precipitation from the explosion of the Tsar Bomb, which was tested in 1961.
NBC suits scanning black snow that fell in his city because of radiation.
Further on Alexander recalls that conversations among local workers were only about the explosion. People discussed the issue of possible consequences. It was often possible to hear how someone was telling a story received from a relative who worked at some test site either in Semipalatinsk, or on Novaya Zemlya, and who saw how ground collapses during underground explosions. The question whether the mountain would fall through or fly up to air after the planned explosion, was seriously discussed at that time.
But conversations flared up again when a local electrician returned from a certain «experimental mine» (this was the name of the object where the explosion was to be made). Alexander recalls that the electrician talked about the preparation process which he saw there (which included stuff like cable stacking and installation of various sensors). But some time later, a very odd situation happened to that electrician. One day he was found dead in his office, being shot (killed) by a fastening tool. All this was presented as a suicide.
The murder weapon looked something like this.
There was some formal investigation, but nobody was punished or charged with murder. The weapon (tool) itself mysteriously disappeared the same day everything happened.
In subsequent years, information about the explosion either faded or appeared with new details. But one day it became known that the bomb would be delivered to the city on the following day. And so it happened. A convoy with a trailer appeared in the city. The trailer was filled with sand and had a metal box inside, which was suspended on stretchers to avoid shacking or breaking. The weight of the bomb was about 300-400 kg. The convoy was guarded by the military and local police. The bomb was delivered without incident.
On September 4, 1972, in the depths of Mount Kuelpor, in the western part of the Khibiny massif, in an adit, at an altitude of 131 meters (with a total height of the mountain being 902 meters), a nuclear bomb, with a yield of 2100 kilotons (in TNT equivalent), exploded. The operation was codenamed Dnepr-1.
Participants of the operation «Dnepr-1».
The first explosion caused an earthquake of 4.5 points (scale not specified). Most residents anxiously awaited the possible consequences of the explosion. These events took place 14 years before Chernobyl, and then no one fully realized the danger of radiation. Some, who had the opportunity, took their relatives to the mainland in advance.
On August 27, 1984, the second underground atomic explosion was conducted, in a new adit at an altitude of 175 meters under the same Kuelpor mountain. It was code-named «Dnepr-2».
The explosion was done in two turns, 1700 kilotons each. (i.e. carried out with a slight delay). As a result there was a double earthquake (the seismic waves felt like they were superimposed on each another, although the total force of the earthquake was similar to the first explosion (the one that was in 1972).
There was a rumor in the city that the latest explosion was a test of new neutron charges. Back then nobody knew what the consequences would be, and people spread rumors that an earthquake of up to 7 points should be expected. There was a pretty good reason for this fear. Because on the eve of the explosion, local authorities announced that on the following day, from 9 am to 11 am, everyone should stay outdoors, at a nearby stadium (although the charges were detonated earlier, at 6 am).
Witnesses of the first explosion said that they saw with their own eyes how at the moment of the explosion the top of the mountain seemed to jump up and then sank back. It is believed that it was at this moment that the release of radioactive substances into the atmosphere happened.
Subsequently, the fear was confirmed by the fact that after the explosions, the Scandinavian countries prohibited their planes to fly above the Kola Peninsula (the ban was lifted only a month later). Local authorities, however, asserted that no increase of radiation was detected in the area of Mount Kuelpor. However, even 50 years later, the water stream that flows out of the mountain has an increased radiation values (in comparison with normal values).
After the explosion, at about 15 o'clock that day, a gray cloud crept to Kirovsk from the north and a light rain began to fall. One our former co-worker named Galina Popova turned out to be outdoors when that rain started (she told me about it herself). A year later, she died of cancer. Subsequently, many women that lived in Kirovsk fell ill with cancer and died. According to the medical statistics of local health authorities, from 1970 to 1990, female oncology in Kirovsk increased 26 times.
Another curious detail comes from my own son Alexey. He noticed that all the boys whose mothers were already pregnant before the explosion began to turn gray very early, from the age of 20. They all had this strange genetic mutation.
And the following information sounds no less creepy. According to Alexander, during the preparation for the second explosion, his father (an employee of the city executive committee), during some evening events with military officers (that had ranks of colonels), who oversaw the organization of the operation, asked them what they thought about the possible death of city residents after the explosion if something goes wrong. The answer of one of the colonels shocked him by its cynicism and cannibalistic cruelty. He replied, «How many people are there? 50 thousand? Well ..... if there were 500 thousand of you, then it would be worth doing something, otherwise ..... it will be collateral losses.».
This is where the eyewitness’ recollection ends, and then the author of the video (Loki Wotan) begins his reasoning.
Loki Wotan’s commentsAccording to the official version, the purpose of the entire operation was to conduct an experiment and develop a new technology for underground mining of ores, using nuclear explosions to crush sections of ore bodies. In this context, we are talking about a mineral called apatite, which in turn is a raw material for the production of phosphate fertilizers and phosphoric acid. It is also used in ferrous and nonferrous metallurgy, in the production of ceramics and glass.
Now imagine what would have happened if the ore mined this way (which is about 396,000 tons) had been sent to various enterprises. This ore was obviously radioactive and unusable.
Here is a curious fact from the comrade_major’s article, that supports Loki Wotan’s view:
RAS employee A.V. Yablokov, in his book «The Myth of the Safety and Efficiency of Peaceful Underground Nuclear Explosions», in Chapter 3.4 quotes lines from the report on the explosion of «Dnepr-1», which describes the result of rock crushing, that produced about 400 thousand tons of ore.
The author of the book notes one suspicious oddity. With all the volume of ore that they managed to produce, it was decided not to use it under the pretext that there were no roads in the region for its transportation. A.V. Yablokov believes that such a reason for refusing to export ore cannot be taken seriously, and the fact that thirty years later all this volume of ore hasn’t been used by anyone may indicate either the ineffectiveness of this explosion, or that extraction of ore was not at all the main goal of the experiment.
Returning back to Loki Wotan’s comments:
If the explosion of the Dnepr-1 experiment can somehow be explained by the lack of experimental data, then the second one does not fit into the picture at all. Was 12 years really not enough for them to draw conclusions about ineffectiveness of this type of ore extraction? Or maybe the real goal was not mining at all? Recall, for example, the statement of that colonel about collateral losses .... such things are usually spoken about in the context of of hostile presence. So here a logical question arises – against whom could they conduct military operations there?
Immediately I recall one interesting conclusion made by a person named Makhov A.V., who worked as an employee of a scientific department of the border security. He said the following: «there was some significant problem of a national scale. Most likely there was some kind of threat. This threat was hiding almost throughout the whole underground part of the Lovozero massif. It was impossible to get directly to its source. Man was overcome by animal fear, besides the fact that it was expensive and could take a lot of time. Also, possible opposition could not be disregarded. The problem could be quickly and cheaply eliminated only with the help of a directed longitudinal-wave nuclear explosion. So, after meticulous discussions and calculations, the corresponding government decision was made, and not just made, but also brilliantly executed.»
Moreover, a nuclear explosion, particularly an underground one, could not be directed from the point of view of mechanical impact on the rock. To create a mechanically directed explosion, you need to use two or more nuclear charges, which are detonated with a certain period of time between them. The Dnepr project assumed the use of something more than just the mechanical energy of the charge. As you know, a nuclear explosion is capable of generating a powerful and very short-term electromagnetic pulse. It was this factor of influence on the anomalous zone that was the main technical task of the developers and implementers of the Dnepr project. And the impact was most likely successful. The first explosion burned the anomaly. It was similar to how a voltage drop in the network burns household appliances in the house. With the second explosion, the object was finally finished off, causing irreversible changes in the geological structures that generate and output telluric radiation to the surface. Most likely, the nuclear explosive devices used in the project were not simple bombs, but rather electromagnetic ones. In other words, their design was such that the energy of the nuclear reaction was converted mainly into an electromagnetic pulse. Such a charge (called an explosive magnetic generator) can indeed be oriented so as to obtain either horizontal polarization of the electromagnetic pulse wave or the vertical one.
In total, in the period of 1965 to 1988, during the implementation of the «Nuclear Explosions for the National Economy» program, 124 nuclear explosions were made on the territory of the USSR. All explosions were underground.
If everything turns out to be truth, it gives a completely new sense to the numerous nuclear tests and explosions of the 20th century. Moreover, what if the whole nuclear program was created not fight the opponents in the cold war, but rather to fight someone else? Were they expecting a retaliation from the old enemy? Given that all countries are obviously under control of one shadow/world government (since the fall of the old world), why would they need nuclear weapons in the first place? All this deserves a more thorough study.
