The Chernobyl Liquidators



☢️April 26, 1986 was the date of the worst nuclear disaster in history. ☢️
What was supposed to be a standard safety test, ended up with the explosion of reactor number 4 of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukraine, in the Soviet Union.
Once the fire was extinguished, and the danger of further explosions eliminated, what remained was a complete mess.
It was a mess that someone had to clean up.
Around 600,000 people were recruited by the Soviet government for the job.
They were known as Liquidators.

  1. They are called Protective Masks, not Gas Masks. These just have a carbon filter for chemical agents. True Gas Masks have a Gas supply, such as oxygen for breathing. And currently, only the screwballs of the Military are Chernoblyed and assigned perimeter duty there.

  2. During the review, I mentioned the medals awarded to the liquidators. One of them was left to me by my father's godfather, who took part in it. And I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the same medal at the end of the video.
