Valery Legasov, chief of the investigation committee, Chernobyl disaster, Murdered or committed suicide on April 27, 1988, the Soviet/Russian authorities and the world still continue to misrepresent the scale of this disaster, only around 3% of all the radioactive particles form Chernobyl were realised into the environment, if the meltdown had not have been stopped the whole of Europe would be highly radioactive probably uninhabitable. It cannot be forgotten how thousands of workers struggled to save the world, knowingly exposing themselves to radiation, in order that we might live.
They are no official figures for the amount of dead, dying & affected from Chernobyl. All the figures I could scrape together from the W.H.O, green peace and various other news sources put the figure at around 9million no one will ever know.
