I was in Kiev in 1986 for a trip. I was there to witness the “May Day” parade DAYS after this man made massive clusterfuck, I've witnessed how naive the public was and how the government PUSHED that ignorance. I've seen heard how doctors use the blase explanation of "Chernobyl" to people who are ailing and couldn't understand why.
Since then I've read countless books from side-witnesses to people who were responsible of building that graphite core based catastrophe (and WARNED Soviet officials about the design).
This is fucking awesome. The whole “внимание! внимание!” (Attention! Attention!) sent chills down my spine as that's the official Soviet voice if a major catastrophe that you hear -- may God help you -- once in your life.
