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!! 💀👻😵
On April 26, 1986, nuclear reactor no. 4 exploded at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine during a botched safety test. The explosion — and the resulting fire that engulfed part of the plant — 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 — its ominous appearance gave it the nickname the “sarcophagus”.
