Ukraine jokes about nominating Russians who entered Chernobyl’s ‘Red Forest’ for ‘Darwin Awards’

The Ukrainian authorities have denounced that the Russian forces that controlled for a month the region of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant they have taken radioactive material “as a souvenir” and have joked with the nomination of the Russian military for the Darwin Awards, which reward those who cause their own death with stupid acts. “The (Russian) occupants stole and damaged 133 objects with a total activity of around 7 million becquerels, comparable to 700 kilograms of radioactive waste with beta and gamma radiation. Even a small part is deadly if handled unprofessionally,” the Ukrainian State Agency for the Management of Exclusion Zones warned in a statement. This radioactive material was stolen from laboratories in the city of Chernobyl in the that the risk of exposure to radiation and options for handling radioactive materials were being investigated for later decision-making about work in different areas of the Chernobyl exclusion zone.”If you have taken with you a memory of this type, in two weeks radiation burns are guaranteed to occur and begin to suffer from the effects of radiation and irreversible processes in the body“, the Ukrainian body has warned. The Agency has recognized that the whereabouts of the stolen radioactive parts are unknown. “The degree of conservation and safety of the calibration sources and radioactive sample solutions cannot be guaranteed and the condition of the damaged ones will be determined after an inventory and adequate measurements,” she pointed out. The offices and laboratory of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant Safety Institute have also been “looted and destroyed” by “Russian invaders and marauders”, according to the Agency. They have stolen and destroyed computers, office supplies, laboratory equipment and measuring devices. The Ukrainian authorities have warned that the Russian forces that controlled Chernobyl have acted recklessly and visited the Red Forest, the area most affected by radiation after the explosion of the Chernobyl reactor in 1986. The Russians visited the contaminated area and then returned to their bedrooms, bringing with them radioactive dust and thus contaminating the facilities. “They dug into the polluted soil and made sandbags for fortifications out of radioactive sand. They breathed in this dust,” Ukrainian Energy Minister German Gulashchenko warned on Friday. The minister gave the soldiers who dug a year to live.
