The Chernobyl disaster was a catastrophic nuclear accident occurring on April 16, 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine. The official Soviet casualty count of 31 deaths has been long disputed, and long-term effects such as cancers and deformities of humans and animals are still being accounted for.

In 1992, at severe risque to his own safety, renegade Ukrainian scientist, Petsik Yevtushok, smuggled shocking photos of human foetal mutations out of a Soviet DNA Lab and brought them to attention of World Health Organization and U.N.’s DNA Mutation Authority. Viewer discretion is advised!

This video garnered over 478,000 + hits on my previous account and am hoping to crank it to over a million on this new site. See the incredible work done by the International Children’s Heart Foundation and its founder Dr. William Novick. This particular mission focused on a genetic birth defect in the hearts of babies born in close proximity to the Chernobyl nuclear reactor and were ravaged by the subsequent radioactivity from the accident in April, 1986.

***Pay particular attention toward the end of the video and the parents’ reaction to Dr. Novick when he comes out after one surgery to repair their daughter’s defect called “Chernobyl Heart.”***

I claim no specific copyright to any content in this video and am not seeking any kind of financial gain…I’m simply moved to share this group’s extraordinary story and pass the word in hopes more people will assist in these kinds of efforts. If nothing else, it’s nice to see angels really DO exist on earth.

Chernobyl: A Million Casualties

Uploaded on Mar 24, 2011

A million people have died so far as a result of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear plant accident, explains Janette Sherman, M.D., toxicologist and contributing editor of the book Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment. Published by the New York Academy of Sciences, the book, authored by Dr. Alexey Yablokov, Dr. Vassily Nesterenko and Dr. Alexey Nesterenko, examined medical records now available–which expose as a lie the claim of the International Atomic Energy Commission that perhaps 4,000 people may die as a result of Chernobyl.

Geographical features of the exclusion zone
The geographical zone of ‘Chernobyl NPP 30 km exclusion zone’ is within the Kiev Poless’e in the south part of Poless’e province. This region is characterised by gradual slope from west and north-west to the east and south-east. Altitude varies from 182m to 103m/ASL. This territory is drained by Pripyat, Uzh, Teterev Rivers. Extensive areas of the ‘ChNPP 30 km exclusion zone’ is bog land.Climate is mild-continental with mild winter and warm summer. The presence of forests, ponds, reservoirs, bogs and settlements affect the local climatic conditions. In winter the air temperature ranges from -25 to +5 Celsius, average – 6C. Depth of frozen soil reaches 80 cm and the height of snow cover is 16cm. Temperature ranges from 17 to 19 Celsius during summer. Average length of unfreezing period is approximately 160 days. Annual average precipitation is near 500 cm.Nature of relief, maternal rocks, climatic conditions and herbage provide territory soil variety. Analysis of prevailing water-glacial sediments are of sandy composition that are near river valleys, sandy grounds are changed by clay and a small reduction of relief is formed by sandy loam soils. There are podzol soils (see H in diagram below) on the higher grounds between rivers.

Relief of modern surface Chernobyl exclusion zone

Erosion of river valleys, denudation-erosion of slopes, beds of large rivers, former river-beds, extended bog plains, former river-beds, lake-bogs and bogs on lowlands and crests form the elements of relief.

Erosion and denudation-erosion slopes of river valleys are developed on the Pripyat River’s right bank on the section between the villages Priborsk and Oranoe and on the left bank of the Teterev River. Slopes of the Teterev River valley has caused a change in the characteristic land form. River bank height reaches 12 m near village of Oranoe and decreases a little further up the river. In the Pripyat Valley the bank slopes are marked near Chernobyl and the village Lelev. Bank height is 20 m, and then in the north-west and south-east the valley slope is more gentle.

The largest river within the territory is the Pripyat River. It crosses the area from north-west to south-east, it meanders within the broad flood plain. Width of the riverbed is highly inconstant—from 60–100 m on north-west to 700–800 m near Otashev Valley at the mouth. Down in south-east the Pripyat River and its multiple dry channels merge with the bay of the Kiev reservoir. River banks are gently sloping, however there are multiple small areas with bluff coasts and height of up to 2–4 m. Altitude of water line is near 103 m/ASL.

Rivers Teterev and Uzh feed the Pripyat River and increase it in size. Their width usually does not exceed 80 m. Altitude of water line varies from 106 m to 103 m/ASL. Gently sloping coasts change to bluff ones. Meander-line of the riverbeds are less pronounced than in the Pripyat River.

The path of the Pripyat flood plain has a highly sinuous nature, reflecting development of multiple meanders. In relief the flood plain residual crests have different heights, basically in 1–13 m. Extended bog plains are typical for small rivers—tributaries of the Pripyat, Uzh, Braginka, Teterev. Among them it is possible to select river Nesvich, Veresnia, Hocheva, Il’ia and others. Those bog plains reach a width of 200–500 m and in the Braginka-Pripyat tributaries reach 1–2 km and more. Nearly all the beds of these rivers are channelled and bogs are partly constrained. After the ChNPP accident multiple dams were built along small rivers to control radionuclide migration. As a result underflooding of the territory has occurred and peatbog irrigation.

Chernobyl Uncensored – Documentary

Published on Apr 20, 2013

The Chernobyl disaster (Ukrainian: Чорнобильська катастрофа, Chornobylska Katastrofa — Chornobyl Catastrophe) was a catastrophic nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine (then officially Ukrainian SSR), which was under the direct jurisdiction of the central authorities of the Soviet Union. An explosion and fire released large quantities of radioactive particles into the atmosphere, which spread over much of Western USSR and Europe.

The Chernobyl disaster is widely considered to have been the worst nuclear power plant accident in history, and is one of only two classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale (the other being the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011). The battle to contain the contamination and avert a greater catastrophe ultimately involved over 500,000 workers and cost an estimated 18 billion rubles. The official Soviet casualty count of 31 deaths has been disputed, and long-term effects such as cancers and deformities are still being accounted for.

Top Documentary Films: What Happened to Chernobyl After The Explosion – Full Documentary

A little over an hour’s drive north (130km) of the city of Kiev is one of the most talked about places, and probably the most controversial tourist attraction in the Ukraine. Amidst an empty, stark, and abandoned landscape the site of Chernobyl sits here.Now that radiation levels have decreased to allow guided tours, you can safely venture forth from the comfort of your rented Kiev apartment or hotel in Kiev to follow in the steps of the many thousands of visitors from all over the world who have visited the site since it was deemed safe to reopen in 2002.

Protected by thick walls, the viewing area allows visitors clear sight of the doomed sarcophagus. This has become a form of modern icon a little like the Empire State building or Windsor Castle, due in the main to having being seen by millions of people as portrayed in newspapers/ magazines, or when the terrifying news of the explosion was reported worldwide by television crews.

20 years since reactor number 4 exploded, spending a few hours near Chernobyl is actually very safe. Much of the region records only slightly elevated levels of radiation – about 22 micro-roentgens, as opposed to the usual 14.

Around the actual reactor, the relative hot spots are diligently monitored on a regular basis, and have posed no risk to human life. National Health Protection agencies from the UK, Europe, and USA all now agree that visitors will receive no more radiation during a visit to Chernobyl than that experienced whilst travelling on a transatlantic flight! The one thing all visitors are told to avoid doing, however, is to avoid eating any food grown within the zone. Therefore, all tours supply lunch for their groups in the form of fresh food brought with them from Kiev.

Each guide carries a Geiger counter, and they are intimately aware of exactly where they can and cannot take their tour groups, plus everyone visiting is automatically screened for radiation levels before they leave the zone.

Close by is the town of Pripyat, once home to 47,000 nuclear workers and their families, and now an atomic-era Pompeii. Trees thrust through the empty shells of hotels, restaurants and bars, and the huge football stadium is stark and overgrown.

In the local school, classrooms lie with open books and the detritus of lives dramatically interrupted by evacuation – it reminds one of being aboard a large land-locked Maria Celeste.

There are still some people living in the exclusion zone. They number around 350, most of them elderly residents. Many were moved out to Kiev accommodation after the accident, but all missed their homes and decided en-mass to return. They live a normal life growing their vegetables, and are seemingly unperturbed by the radiation.

As you climb back into your tour bus ready to return to the warmth of your cosy Kiev apartment, the absolute guarantee has to be that your trip to Chernobyl will have been a truly unique and fascinating experience, one you can tell friends and family about for many years to come.

Inside Chernobyl (2012)

A short film based on current conditions in Chernobyl & Pripyat. Please note, I am an amateur documentary filmmaker and this documentary was made on no budget. The only cost involved were just the travel expenses to the Ukraine.

New Directors Cut –

What is that bashing sound around the 15 minute mark? The foundations for the new shelter are being bashed into the ground as the soil is too dangerous and radioactive to dig up. The new shelter will cover the crumbling one that currently covers reactor 4. The new shelter will be completed in 2015.

Was I exposed to lots of radiation? In short, no. My dosage of radiation would of been about the same as I would have received on a long haul flight. You also get checked for contamination on the way out of the zone.

Did I have to wear any protective clothing? No, but you are not allowed to wear shorts or short sleeve shirts. You must wear long trousers and jumpers, boots or other hard wearing shoes. Open shoes like sandals are not allowed.

How did I get access to Chernobyl? You can arrange a visit through a company called Solo-East. Google them! A private tour like I took costs $500 a day. I recommend 2-3 days if you can afford it. You will see hardly anything in just one day. Unfortunately, you are no longer allowed inside buildings.

Chernobyl 3828

Published on Apr 21, 2012

Military people call such places “FRONTLINE”, liquidators who worked at the Chornobyl nuclear station called it “ROOF COATING”. It was the most contaminated, and therefore the most dangerous, place in the zone. The remains of the roof coating of the 4th reactor. The operation on decontaminating the roof lasted more than five months. We will tell about only two days. About the most important two days in the life of an explorer – dosimetrist Valeriy Starodumov. He participated in this operation until it was over. He himself came out to the roof and led people there. He himself planted the “victory banner” at the level of 75 meters, as the signal for the zone: the roof coating has been decontaminated! Now, 25 years later, Valeriy Starodumov comes back to the zone. Now Chernobyl is a tourist object. But not for him…

On September 1, 1986 a German robot “Joker” broke down. With a lot of difficulties this robot was installed in the most dangerous zone “M”. Local robots were unable to work there. High hopes were placed on “Joker”. It was the last argument that people should not be used for decontamination. But the robot “sat down” on the graphite block and was stuck there. Our hero with two other subordinates came out to the roof coating into the zone of high radioactivity to pull off “the Fritz” with the help of winch. They managed to do this but…

Fragment of the monologue: “It turned out that it was not just jammed track. Some idiot, trying to prove to the world that there can be no global catastrophes at the Soviet nuclear power stations, underrated by a factor of ten the radiation levels in the application. Pedantic Germans have programmed the robot in accordance with the order and “Joker” suddenly died. The electronic brains of “the Fritz’ burned out. So my “heroic” escapade was a bust. And also we got the soldiers to the winch for nothing. We just had to keep silent while their commander took it out on us.”

September 19, 1986. The Governmental commission “throws” soldiers and military students into decontamination of the roof coating. Valeriy Starodumov trains and takes the first “couple” of soldiers to the zone of the highest contamination of more than 8000 Roentgen. After the successful experiment, the process “is launched as conveyor”.

Fragment of the monologue: “I will take a few hundred people through the zone. I will not know who they are, I will not see their faces behind protective masks and I will never know what is going to happen to them afterwards. It was not me who had made a decision to send these men to the zones of mortal danger, but each night some inexplicable feeling of guilt brings me back to the past. To that first two-minute shift, which has been continues for me for a quarter of century…”

“…So, in the fall of 1986 3,828 people would pass through the roof coating of the Chernobyl power station. The heroes who saved the world — the newspapers would write in a pathetic manner. A few years later the heroes would no longer be remembered, and then they would be completely forgotten. That’s really true: “life costs a penny”. However, it is much more important for a person what he himself appreciates in this life, rather than for how much someone evaluated it…”
