The five nuclear scientists who died during an explosion at a secret military range in northern Russia are heroes, the Kremlin said, without confirming US speculation the mishap was related to Russia’s hypersonic missile program. “Accidents, unfortunately, happen. They are tragic,” Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, said on Tuesday. “It is important for us to remember those heroes who lost their lives in this accident.” Experts from the Russian nuclear agency Rosatom explained the causes of the accident and gave all the relevant details, Peskov said. “I have nothing more to add to this.”
