    All USSR non underground nuclear explosions ( at least I hope so), since the names for most of the tests weren't announced ( or given by Russians ) almost everywhere I have ?, a few first tests have names Joe #, but those are given by Americans, according to the Joseph Stalin's first name, ( Uncle Joe ? ). If you you find anything incorrect or missing please Contact Me, any help will be appreciated.
