Acoustic emission diagnostics of the tsar bell’s state

It was at the beginning of 1986 when I was summoned by I.I. Vorovich, director of our Institute of Mechanics and Applied Mathematics at Rostov State University. He instructed me (at that time, I was the head of the acoustic emission laboratory) to prepare for a business trip to Moscow. The reason for this was that, a few days before our conversation, Yu.A. Zhdanov, rector of the Rostov State University (RSU), received the following letter from Moscow signed by the Commander of the Dzerzhinskii Military Academy (now the Peter the Great Academy of Strategic Rocket Forces):
