Russian Soldiers Leaving Chernobyl Exclusion Zone Suffer Acute Radiation Syndrome

Russians leaving the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone suffered from Acute Radiation Syndrome after reportedly disturbing radioactive dust. 

Yaroslav Yemelianenko, a member of the Public Council at the State Agency of Ukraine for Exclusion Zone, said on Facebook that “another batch of Russian irradiated terrorists was brought to the Belarusian Radiation Medicine Center in Homel today.”

Reports said that at least seven buses packed with Russian soldiers arrived at the medical facility in Belarus.

Yemelianenko said that the Russian troops lost many of their personnel because they did not meet the radiation safety standards. There are mandatory rules to follow in handling the power plant, Yemelianenko added. 

The National Nuclear Energy Generating Company of Ukraine said that the Russian troops announced their intentions to leave the Chernobyl Power Plant. The Pentagon also confirmed that the Russians began to leave the facility.

Russian troops seized the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant on February 24, the same day as the Russian attack on Ukraine.
