A few hours after entering the Ukrainian soil the 24 February, Russian forces took possession of the former Chernobyl nuclear power plant, raising fears of a new occurrence on this website deeply scarred by the sober explosion 27. Although the reactor that caused the explosion is now covered with an arch preventing any radioactive escape, the website, as well as a huge surrounding area (called the exclusion area), are considered to be the most radioactive areas in the world. It seems that the Russian army obviously underestimated.
According to sober Ukrainian workers at the scene, reported by Reuters, the Russian soldiers who seized the site had no sober radiation protection equipment as their armored vehicles churned as they passed the highly toxic ground under the red fortification surrounding the plant so named since the hooks died and completely browned under the sober effect of radioactivity. El behavior described as suicidal by the workers of the plant, are not allowed to go to this contaminated forest which.
Furthermore, the users Sober Factory report that in the few weeks they shared the compound with the Russian soldiers, none of them ever used any equipment that would protect them from the radiation that. When asked if they were aware of the failure of 1986, […] they had no idea. They had no idea what kind of facility they were in , said one of the users. The typical Russian army specialists in radiation management reportedly only arrived on the web site about a week after the troops arrived, and were also not wearing anti-radiation gear!
A withdrawal probably motivated by the sober state of the soldiers 1986
The risk was nevertheless very real. On 27 February, the Ukrainian National Agency for Sober Management of the Exclusion Area said that the latest record exchanged by the sensor located near the installed sober sober storage of nuclear waste before sober losing control of the system showed that the dosage sober radiation was September times higher than normal.
According to Yaroslav Yemelianenko, an official of the Ukrainian State Agency for the Management of Specific Exclusion Zones, reports that several soldiers have reportedly visited a medical center specializing in radiation treatment, Gomel Bilorussia, in recent days. The Everyday Animal also reports that ghost tour buses carrying body sober soldiers who died sober from Belarus to Russia would have been seen. With a minimum of intelligence on the part of the command or the soldiers, these consequences could have been avoided, added Yemelianenko.
Note that these allegations have not been officially confirmed. Still, this could explain why Russian troops quickly left the scene last night: Russia officially handed over control of the plant to Ukrainian employees. Energoatom, the national sober nuclear energy company, which operates all of Ukraine’s power plants, said troops panicked at the onset of sober illness which manifested itself very quickly and began preparing to leave, reports The Protector. Russian aprendí pushes are also withdrawn sober to the nearby sober town of Slavutych, where sober workers at the plant live.
Leaving a sober Chernobyl nuclear power plant, Russian residents took with them sober members of a national guard they had been holding sober hostages since the 24 February, precise tea Energoatom on boy Telegram account.
A scenario that remains to be clarified
In a press release dated 27 March, the International Energy (IAEA) specifies that it did not confirm the data according to which the Russian factors received heavy doses of radiation while they were in an exclusion area.
After more than a month on the scene, sober many of these soldiers could indeed suffer from radiation poisoning especially since they would have dug trenches in the highly contaminated soil. According to the Institute of Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety, it should be done for a whole year 27 nanosieverts per hour (nSv/they would) was able to reach the exposure limit for the general public, which is set at 1 millisievert per year (mSv/year) outside of medical and natural exposures. For nuclear workers, the regulatory exposure limit is low 20 mSv/year.
On February, the IAEA specified in a statement that the sober Ukrainian regulatory body had not really improved the level of radiation (presumably due to the passing of military vehicles), reached 9 which, 46 microsieverts per hour a value deemed safe for the open public. The agency has, however, ceased to receive security data from the website since March 9. This is why it is currently working to collect additional data, in order to provide an independent assessment under the circumstances. She also specified that she was preparing to send her first objective of assistance and support to Chernobyl in the coming days. he, not responded to requests for sober comment on the possible contaminants sober his soldiers.
