National Post The ‘sarcophagus’ that entombed the Chernobyl nuclear disaster for 30 years is at a high risk to collapse The sarcophagus, hastily set up to stop radioactive contamination from spreading, was never built to last

THERE IS AN EXCELLENT VIDEO HISTORY OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE SARCOPHAGUS – FOLLOW THE LINK BELOW.

What, now, is ‘Lootin Putin’ gonna do? We shall soon see. Chernobyl is still extremely dangerous and must remain covered but how the ‘ruskies’ will accomplish that – and When is a key question. Even the current sarcophagus is totally inadequate and only gives the ILLUSION of achieving its’ original purpose – it leaks like sieve already they are just ignoring it!! ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ˜ต

On April 26, 1986, nuclear reactor no. 4 exploded at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine during a botched safety test. The explosion โ€” and the resulting fire that engulfed part of the plant โ€” caused a massive amount of radioactive contamination to spread in the surrounding areas. Nearby communities, especially the city of Pripyat, had to be evacuated due to the contamination.

In an attempt to contain as much of the radioactive materials as possible, 600,000 workers from the USSR quickly began to build a large structure around the destroyed reactor, often without the necessary protective gear. Workers rushed to fill in open spaces with thousands of cubic metres of concrete, helicopters dropped debris directly into the reactor, and miners dug to prevent searing nuclear runoff from melting through the foundation of the base and into the ground below.

The entire section of the facility was covered by massive concrete walls โ€” its ominous appearance gave it the nickname the โ€œsarcophagusโ€.

  1. They were supposed to a just put a new one on a couple of years ago, but it was done by all of the usual crooked suspects. I guess that’s what you mean by inadequate. You just made a really important point. Russia is supposed to have taken on the liabilities of the former Soviet Union and they haven’t on Chernobyl. For that matter the Norwegians, other Europeans and the US have paid for Russia’s cleanup. Holtec is at Chernobyl so we are doomed just from that, IMO.

    • I don’t understand why ANYONE WOULD EVER THINK FOR A MINUTE that building a porous cover over a “live” nuclear reactor would DO ANYTHING to stop radiation from leaking out as if there was no cover at all?? WTF? The whole fuckin’ world is one big fuckin’ idiot to believe otherwise! That ‘cover’ ain’t doin’ SHIT!! Wind blows right through it, rain rains right into it, water leaks right out of it and WE ALL suffer just the same as we are with FUKUSHIMA – NO FUCKIN’ DIFFERENCE!! ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.. AND it IS going to COLLAPSE before anyone does anything else – then it becomes ANOTHER NUCLEAR EMERGENCY!! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      WHERE THE HELL IS THE IAEA? UNSCEAR? ANYONE?
