Ktos 17 | 456 3 Mar 2016 #1In 1986 there was an explosion at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the town of Pripyat in Ukraine.The radioactive waste has spread throughout Soviet Union and to the west of It including Poland and other countries in Its vicinity. The Plant was governed by the central powers in Soviet Union - Russia - and as such Russia is ultimately responsible for the disaster. However, accidents can happen but what many Polish can not understand is how could Russian and Ukrainian authorities try to conceal the accident, the bastards tried to hide the fact that radiation is raising in many countries to dangerous levels as a direct result of the said disaster. This is something Russia should be held accountable for, people had the right to know that they may been be effected by additional (other than natural everyday exposure) levels of radiation that could cause serious health complications. The knowledge of it reached the public only through Radio Free Europe (Poland) where on the third day Sweden alerted listeners to the raised radiation levels in the atmosphere.There are many disputes as to how much has the accident effected and is going to further effect those exposed to radiation all those years ago, the reports vary with some claiming the radiation levels were much lower than first reported, while other media outlets project more deaths in the near future, most notably from cancer. In Poland, it is has been estimated that in two years the generation of those exposed to the radiation will began to suffer greatly the effects of the past exposure. Whether it's true or not, the fact remains that Soviet authorities tried to all the disaster related information from public knowledge, that's beyond disgusting.
