    The Russians start to withdraw from Chernobyl. Panic after the first signs of radiation sickness

    The Russians intend to leave the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and the nearby town of Slavutych, Ukrainian company Enerhoatom announced on Thursday. As reported, some Russian troops have already travelled to the Belarusian border.

    “It has been confirmed that the occupiers, who had occupied the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and other facilities in the exclusion zone, set out with two columns on their way to the Ukrainian border with Belarus,” it was communicated by Enerhoatom.


    According to it, on Thursday morning, the Russians told the Ukrainian staff of the plant about their plans to leave the plant. A “small number” of Russians remain on the site of the power plant.


    “We would like to point out that the information about the fortifications, the trenches that the Russians built directly in the Red Forest, i.e., the most polluted (radiation) in the entire exclusion zone has also changed,” we read.


    “No wonder the occupiers received large doses of radiation and panicked at the first symptoms of the disease. And it manifests very quickly. Among the military, the rebellion almost began to start and they started moving away from there,” writes the company.


    According to Enerhoatom, there is evidence that a column of Russian troops is being formed in the direction of Belarus, which took part in the siege of Slavutych.
