Ukrainian Officials Claim That Russian Soldiers Are Affected By Radiation at Chernobyl

The horrible war between Russia and Ukraine continues, unfortunately. It was evident that new dreadful details would start to surface once again. Ukrainian officials are now claiming that Russian soldiers are severely affected by radiation after digging trenches in Chernobyl, according to Daily Beast.

As a result, the soldiers are now receiving medical treatment in a special medical facility in Gomel, Belarus. They allegedly made the mistake of digging in a Red Forest near the site where the nuclear disaster of Chernobyl occurred in 1986. The soil is contaminated in that area.

Yaroslav Yemelianenko, who works at the Public Council at the State Agency of Ukraine for Exclusion Zone Management, stated via Facebook:

Another batch of Russian irradiated terrorists who seized the Chernobyl zone was brought to the Belarusian Radiation Medicine Center in Gomel today,

Now live the rest of your short life with this. There are rules for dealing with this territory.

What happened at Chernobyl 36 years ago was the worst nuclear disaster in history, considering both the casualties and the cost.

The maximum severity of nuclear accidents is rated using the International Nuclear Event Scale. Therefore, the Chernobyl disaster was rated at seven, meaning the highest level of severity. The only other nuclear disaster that obtained the same score was the one from Fukushima, Japan, which occurred in 2011.

Officially, 31 people died as a result of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. For about four years after the accident at the nuclear power plant, there was an increased incidence of thyroid cancer. Teenagers and young children were affected.

Anatoly Dyatlov was the engineer who has supervised the safety test from the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. He was found responsible for the disaster and sentenced to 10 years in prison for neglecting the safety protocols.
