This is a story about revenge against Russia. Revenge using a bomb, and not just any bomb but the most powerful bomb in the world.In 1961 Russia built and exploded the biggest thermonuclear weapon in the world, a monster 58 Megaton bomb. They also secretly built a second bomb which they stored at a nuclear storage facility where it remained forgotten for 28 years. In 1989 Ukrainian conscripts stationed at the facility, accidentally find the arming codes and decide to steal the big bomb and destroy Moscow to pay back Russia for all the suffering that Ukraine had endured over the years, Holodomor, Chernobyl, etc. Although the conscripts are successful in acquiring the bomb, They, unfortunately, are not able to detonate it. Having to abandon the effort, they successfully hide the weapon. Two years later when the Soviet Union fell all the conspirators immigrate to the USA. It is not until 2022 that the theft is finally discovered and after a lengthy investigation, the Russians determine the theft was over 30 years ago and that the conspirators were Ukrainian conscripts who had since immigrated to the USA.
