Russian Soldiers entered highly toxic Chernobyl’s “Red Forest” without wearing anti-radiation gear

Russian soldiers drove their armoured vehicles to the highly toxic zone “Red Forest”

This Pine tree forest turned red after absorbing the radiation from the 1986 explosion from then on it is called “Red Forest”. It is located around Chernobyl nuclear power plant. On Feb 24th Russian military took control over this area but the maintenance was taken care of by the staff. The very next day, Ukraine’s state nuclear inspectorate told that there had been an increase in radiation levels because of the disturbances caused by the heavy military activities.

There were two witnesses during this incident, who were also staff members of this site told, ” A big convoy of military vehicles drove along a road right behind our facility and this road further goes past the Red forest.” Further continued, ” The convoy kicked up a big column of dust. Many Radiation safety sensors showed exceeded levels and soldiers were not wearing any anti-radiation gear.”

The other staff told that it was suicidal since the radioactive dust that they inhaled was likely to cause internal radiation in their bodies.

On the other hand, the Russian military said that the Radiation level was normal after capturing this site and also not to forget that they denied putting nuclear facilities inside Ukraine.

Valery Seida told Reuters that he was not there at that time and continued saying, ” Nobody goes there for God’s sake. There is no one there.”
