Russian troops entered the Chernobyl-contaminated radiation area with armored vehicles and didn’t go that well.
Workers said Russian soldiers drove armored vehicles through the Red Forest, a forest in the area which is actually Chernobyl’s most contaminated area.
Workers, as well as the International Atomic Energy Agency, said that shortly after the incident, which occurred in the first days of the Russian attack on Ukraine, sensors in the area showed that radioactive dust had risen, increasing the level of radiation around the site.
One of the workers who spoke to Russian soldiers said they had no idea where the facilities were located.
According to reports, many Russian soldiers who were operating in the area have recently been transferred to a specialized hospital in Belarus for treatment.
