yeah actually today also there should be 3 or 4 reactors still running in Ukraine.. in Chernobyl other 3 reactors were working even after the disaster after some time they were shut down but initial idea seems deploying 6-8 reactors in that area.. there even unfinished constructions from that time around the area..

She went to all those places, and had to wear protective equipment for some high radiation zones. But the saddest thing is how the land is so contaminated still all these years later, which has caused high numbers of birth defects and disease.

Itís a very moving and eye opening documentary. Hereís a qwik trailer...
thank you.. and yes i watched it before but i can watch again though cheers..
