Shocking film from Chernobyl accident: People did not know then...
posted March 16 2011 6:19.36 by Giorgos Lazaridis

I was 8 years old when it happened. Athens, my hometown, is about 2000 km away from the nuclear power plan in the Ukraine. I still remember the ignorance regarding the nuclear radiation. What we were told was to avoid staying in the rain, avoid drinking milk and other similar products and avoid vegetables from northern areas. But the following film reveals the absolute ignorance of the people that worked in Chernobyl after the accident. You will see people working with absolutely no protection near and above the destroyed core.

This historical film was taken by a Russian filmmaker named Vladimir Shevchenko, who worked for the Central TV in Ukraine in 1986. He was given unprecedented access to the Chernobyl zone immediately after a meltdown of reactor number four. They were told that the levels of radiation were normal. Today, these levels are considered to be a million times above normal. Most of the people you will see likely received lethal radiation doses. Vladimir Shevchenko decided to climb onto the roof of the plant and film directly into the core of the reactor wearing only a cotton mask. He died of cancer within a few weeks.
