Graph showing how casualties from nuclear attack on Russia would vary month to month according to prevailing wind patterns.

The number of people injured or killed by a nuclear attack would also vary widely depending on the month; the maximum number of casualties from an attack on Russian ICBM silos would occur in June, when the prevailing winds would blow fallout from an important counterforce-attack target, the Kozelsk missile field, directly toward Moscow.
