What was being tested?

Russia had just confirmed that at the time of the accident, an engine powered by nuclear power was being tested.

There is speculation that it may be an anti-ship missile or a long-range underwater drone.

But experts in Russia and the West believe that it could possibly be the 9M730 Burevastnik missile, which NATO knows as 'Skyfall'.

According to President Putin, its range is 'endless'.

It has been prepared for the response of nuclear attack.
