‘More Hollywood Than Hollywood’: Critics Slam Russian ‘Chernobyl’
Updated:
April 16, 2021
Danila Koslovsky’s “Chernobyl” tells the story of a fictional firefighter against the backdrop of the nuclear disaster.
Central Partnership
The success of HBO’s 2019 miniseries “Chernobyl” left Russian filmmakers inspired to shoot their own version of the tragic events that took place in Soviet Ukraine in 1986.  
But Russian director Danila Koslovsky’s “Chernobyl,” which premiered Thursday, has so far failed to generate the same critical acclaim as Craig Mazin’s miniseries.
Instead of offering a historic retelling of the events, Koslovsky’s “Chernobyl” tells the story of a fictional firefighter against the backdrop of the nuclear disaster.

Cameco To Restart Cigar Lake Mine After December Pandemic Shutdown :: The Independent Global Nuclear News Agency

Canada-based uranium miner Cameco is planning to restart production at its Cigar Lake uranium mine in northern Saskatchewan in April, the company said in a statement on Friday.
Cameco suspended operations at Cigar Lake in mid-December 2020 because of the increasing risks posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The company said at the time that the availability of workers in critical areas was shrinking, with more individuals screening out or living in communities with pandemic-related travel restrictions.
With the restart of Cigar Lake, Cameco will closely monitor the Covid-19 case counts and the progress of the vaccine rollout, and will continue dialogue with public health authorities and northern Saskatchewan leaders.

Polish state websites hacked and used to spread false info

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Two Polish government websites were hacked Wednesday and used briefly to spread false information about a non-existent radioactive threat, in what a Polish government official said had the hallmarks of a Russian cyberattack.
The National Atomic Energy Agency and Health Ministry websites briefly carried claims of a supposed nuclear waste leak coming from neighboring Lithuania and threatening Poland.
In addition, the Twitter account of a journalist who often writes about Russian and eastern European affairs was also hacked and used to further spread the information.

Chernobyl Was Nothing: The Dead USSR Nuked It Self Countless Times

Between 1949 and 1990, a total of 456 atomic and thermonuclear devices were exploded at the Semipalatinsk Test Site (STS). Many of the earliest tests were conducted on the surface and in the atmosphere, which spread radioactive fallout across Central Asia. Additionally, five surface tests were unsuccessful and resulted in the wide dispersion of plutonium into the environment.

UN experts find 'no harmful effects' from Fukushima nuclear disaster
Researchers found that the 2011 nuclear catastrophe had not harmed the health of local residents or increased the risk of cancer, according to a new report.
An earthquake and the ensuing tsunami caused the 2011 Fukushima disaster
10 years ago, according to UN report published on Monday. The series of meltdowns and explosions, prompted by a 2011 earthquake and a subsequent tsunami, is considered the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in 1986.
The nuclear radiation from the Japan accident has not increased the risk for cancer beyond normal, said the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR).

TRUMBULL — Abandoned buildings are a bit like time capsules, containing artifacts of a world that hasn’t existed in decades — and for decades, Trumbull resident Rob Dobi has been drawn to them.
“There’s something about it that’s so serene,” Dobi said. “Especially when you think of places where thousands of people once worked that one day they just locked up and left.”
Dobi is an urban explorer. He and others who enjoy the hobby painstakingly document modern ruins, photographing the dusty factories, offices, resorts, schools, theaters and anything else old and abandoned he can find. He has gathered hundreds of such photos on his website, newenglandruins.com.

The catastrophic accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant occurred on April 26, 1986, in the No. 4 nuclear reactor close to the city of Pripyat, in north Ukraine. The event saw 400 times more radioactive material than the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki sent into the sky and land in the surrounding area. Locals were evacuated and told to pack enough for three days, however, most never returned.

Company Announces MOU With Fermi Energia To Study SMR Deployment In Estonia :: The Independent Global Nuclear News Agency

Rolls-Royce and Estonia-based nuclear technology startup Fermi Energia have signed a memorandum of understanding to study the potential for the deployment of small modular reactors in Estonia.
The UK company said the study will cover all aspects of deployment including grid suitability, cooling, emergency planning, human resources, licensing feasibility, economics and supply chain.
Rolls-Royce is leading a consortium that is designing a low-cost factory built SMR. Its standardised, factory-made components and advanced manufacturing processes push costs down, while the rapid assembly of the modules and components inside a weatherproof canopy on the power station site itself avoid costly schedule disruptions.

Despite the fact that the Chernobyl nuclear disaster unfolded back in 1986, the fallout continues to impact certain areas of the world to this day.
That includes a series of irradiated vehicles that were used in the clean-up operation, which remain as rusting relics in a cemetery located on the outskirts of the Chernobyl zone, near the village of Rossokha.
As you're no doubt aware, the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant - in what is now Ukraine - suffered from a catastrophic accident on April 26 1986, and has been pretty much dormant ever since.
The explosion of Reactor Four is thought to have resulted in the deaths of thousands of people and left a 2,600km exclusion zone.

What happened at Chernobyl?
When an alarm bellowed out at the nuclear plant on April 26, 1986, workers looked on in horror as the control panels signalled a major meltdown in the number four reactor.
The safety switches had been switched off in the early hours to test the turbine but the reactor overheated and generated a blast - the equivalent of 500 nuclear bombs.

Ben Fogle has climbed Mount Everest, rowed the Atlantic, trekked the Antarctic and run across the Sahara Desert. And yet when I mention to people that I am interviewing him for his latest TV show, Ben Fogle: Inside Chernobyl, I am greeted with sniggers of derision. “Can’t wait to see Gemma Collins on the Fukushima disaster next year,” one friend texted, while Twitter was ablaze with mickey-taking.

If you ever find yourself feeling a little bored - and who doesn't at the moment? - you could go and have a look around some places of the world you wouldn't normally go to see if there's anything interesting.
How about a nice Google Earth trip to Chernobyl, where you might even spot a pile of bones that could even be the remains of a human?
Take a look at this video from a TikTok account that takes the time to search these sorts of places.
