Two dead in rocket test explosion in northern Russian - RIA”

Two specialists died of sustained wounds.

"During the test of a liquid propellant jet engine, an explosion occurred and the equipment caught fire", the ministry said of the incident in the small town of Nyonoska.

"As a result of the accident, six representatives of the ministry of defense and the developer received injuries of varying severity".

"There have been no harmful chemicals released into the atmosphere, the radiation levels are normal", it added.

"A short-term rise in background radiation was recorded at 12 o'clock in Severodvinsk", Ksenia Yudina, a spokeswoman for the city authorities, said.

The Nyonoksa range is a critical test site for Russian missile systems, everything from intercontinental ballistic missiles to cruise missiles. "Now the levels have normalised", the city authorities said on its official website. They said levels were below permissible limits by 2 pm.

The explosion is the second military accident within a week.

However, according to Russian news agency Lenta, local inhabitants in Severodvinsk were encouraged through social media to drink iodine and avoid taking children out hiking.

The testing centre dates back to 1954 and was used by the Soviet Union to test its nuclear arsenal.

A series of blasts rocked an arms depot at a military base in Siberia on Monday, killing one, injuring 13 and prompting authorities to evacuate thousands of people from nearby settlements.

The Rocket explosion incident isn't the first one to hit the military in Russian Federation this week.
