Abstract : This issue of the publication starts a systematic effort to educate the Russian public in the measures to be adopted in protecting themselves against nuclear weapons. Following accounts that describe a nuclear weapon and shock waves, there are accounts on luminous radiation, penetrating radiation, and radioactive contamination. The issue is apparently intended as background information for instructors who are to teach the means and method of protection against mass destruction weapons.
