My God have mercy on those who've fallen mercy of a nation that tried desperately to master nuclear energy (much like Iran) so fast that they don't know the fundamentals of neither safety or technology, merely to keep in the game.
How pathetic for a government. I weep for their future.

I'm glad someone posts these photos. I don't see the NY Times reporting on this.

So very sad, and what a warning the world needs to heed. Why can't we all work together and reach for the stars instead of this petty fighting.

When they built the temporary sarcophagus over the exploded reactor, military personnel were allowed 60 seconds each to work due to radiation exposure directly over the blast site. So there are likely tens of thousands of Russian soldiers and their off-spring with less noticeable deformities.

A second giant re-inforced concrete sarcophagus was built later to permanently seal the site. It exposed another 10,000 workers to lower, but longer, levels of radiation with unknown future side effects. No one in history had been exposed to such levels of radiation for such a prolonged period.

@StaticX: that reactor won't explode again because the whole facility has been shut down in 2004.

Also there's practically no radiation in Chernobyl/Pripyat, and I know it for a fact - I visited in May this year.
