Liquidation of 327 tons of rocket oxidant, melange /a component of fuel/, has been finished in Moldova.
A large volume of the melange had been kept in store at a rocket base not far from Chisinau for 28 years, Moldavan Minister of Defence Victor Gaiciuc reported on Friday. Its storage term ended as far back as in 1985. The cisterns, which contained the oxidant, were exposed to corrosion and the melange might have penetrate in the atmosphere or soil.
The oxidant was neutralized by the British John Brown firm in accordance with a memorandum agreement between the Moldovan government and the NAMSA international agency for disarmament, the minister specified.
The burning of the melange went on well, without environmental pollution, high-tech equipment applied, Gaiciuc remarked.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
It has long been understood that the West has been trying to subject Russian borders to total control. We have not seen such activity even during the Cold War
