As the first atomic bomb of the USSR, undermined the health of 33 US President

Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. This country recently became the owner of a nuclear weapons, the eighth state in a row. In recent months, North Korea has been conducting trial after trial. US President Donald Trump declares his readiness to destroy the country. Pyongyang promises to pacify America with return fire. The world media is full of headlines: the planet is on the verge of nuclear war.

Something similar in stories already been. Only then in place of the DPRK was the USSR. We also planned to destroy. What, then, prevented Washington from implementing its plans?

The creation of the first nuclear charge in the Soviet Union is still shrouded in legends. It is known that the most destructive weapon of all times was created under the leadership of Igor Kurchatov. But until now many people believe that our bomb was created with the help of Western experts.
