  hx> CHORNOBYL is a site north of KYIV   
      already mentioned in 1193 as a ROYAL HUNTING "COUNTY" 
  within are area generally known as POLISIA 
  absorbed by LITHUANIA, POLAND and eventually RUSSIA 
  hx> site of an ATOMIC DISASTER due to  
      RECKLESS EXPERIMENTATION BY INCOMPETENT OPERATORS OF 
  AN ATOMIC REACTOR WHICH THEY WERE TRYING TO 
  SLOW DOWN BUT INSTEAD LOST CONTROL OF THE CHAIN 
  REACTION WHICH LED TO AN EXPLOSION EQUIVALENT TO
  200 HIROSHIMA NAGASAKI ATOMIC BOMBS COMBINED
  THE SITE IS ONLY ABOUT 40 Km NORTH OF KIEV now KYIV 
  THE CAPITAL OF UKRAINE 
  KYIV WAS NOT DESTROYED BECAUSE THE WIND WAS 
  BLOWING IN ANOTHER DIRECTION
  FOLLOWING THE APRIL 26 1986 EXPLOSION 
  4 MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WERE EXPOSED TO NEARLY 
  300 DIFFERENT RADIACTIVE ISOTOPES (NUCLIDES) 
  MUCH OF THE DISSEMINATED DATA SINCE THEN BY 
  INTERNATIONAL AGENCIES ARE BASED ON USSR DATA 
  WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT BE OBJECTIVE 
  INDEPENDENT ESTIMATES ARE THAT 200 MILLION CURIES WERE RELEASED
  IN CONTRAST TO 50 MILLION REPORTED BY USSR AND THEIR EXPERT 
  Valery LEGAZOV [#] WHO LATER COMMITED SUICIDE 
  note THAT USSR MINISTERS AND COMMUNIST PARTY LEADERS 
       WERE AWARE OF THE FULL SCOPE OF THE DISASTER BUT 
  OPTED TO MISINFORM THE POPULATION
  ONE TRAGIC EXAMPLE OF THE ETHICAL POVERTY OF THESE LEADERS 
  STANDS OUT 
  AS THE RADIOACTIVE FALLOUT WAS ONGOING 
  COMMUNIST LEADERS KNOWINGLY ORGANIZED A 
  MAY 1st PARADE (5 DAYS AFTER THE CHORNOBYL EXPLSION) 
  AND THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN PARADED IN HONOR AND GLORY 
  OF COMMUNISM WHILE BEING EXPOSED TO HIGH LEVELS 
  OF IONIZING RADIATION AND INHALING RADIOCATIVE IODINE 
  A MAJOR CAUSE FOR THE EPIDEMIC OF THYROID CANCERS IN 
  UKRAINIAN CHILDREN THAT PERSIST TO THIS TIME 
  note ONLY AFTER WESTERN EUROPEAN AGENCIES REPORTED
       WIDE SPREAD HIGH RADIOACTIVITY FALLOUT DID THE
  USSR CONCEDE THAT CHORONOBYL EXPLODED 
  BUT EVEN THEN CONTINUED TO MISLEAD ITS PEOPLE 
  THE SOVIETS REPORTED TWO VERSIONS OF "FACTS"
  ONE SET OF "NEWS" FOR THE WEST and 
  ANOTHER SET OF "NEWS" FOR THE USSR AND "CLIENT" STATES 
  WHICH WERE GENERALLY FALSE AND MISLEADING
  lit+ Alla YAROSHINSKA [#] wrote
       "CHORNOBYL HIDDEN TRUTHS"
  mostly on the basis of 40 SECRET USSR MEMORANDA
  SHOWING THAT THE POLITBURO
  WITH THE APPROVAL OF Premier GORBACHEV [#] 
  WERE FULLY AWARE OF THE DISASTER AND ITS MISMANAGEMENT
  one of their decision is given below
  biol> TO AVOID "WASTING" LARGE STOCKS OF BEEF
        A SECRET ORDER WAS GIVEN TO MIX BEEF CONTAMINATED 
  WITH RADIOACTIVITY WITH OTHER BEEF IN 1 to 10 PARTS   
  SUCH MIXTURE WAS DISTRIBUTED ACROSS THE WHOLE USSR 
  EXCEPT FOR MOSCOW WHERE THE SAME ELITE 
  CONTINUES TO LIVE
  hx> in 1990 UKRAINE DECLARED INDEPENDENCE BUT
      UKRAINIAN COMMUNISTS REMAINED IN POWER
  NONE OF THE LEADERS IMPLICATED IN POLICIES
  THAT HARMED VAST NUMBERS OF THE POPULATION
  WENT TO TRIAL NOR WERE FIRED DISGRACED or CENSORED
  TO THE CONTRARY
  THE SAME "LEADERS" CONTINUE TO "LEAD" THE "NEW UKRAINE" 
  ONE OFFICIAL EXPLANATION FOR THE
  LACK OF INVESTIGATIONS IS THAT
  THE ACCUSED CAN NOT BE CHARGED
  BECAUSE OF A TIME STATUTE LIMITATION
  AMONG THOSE STRONGLY IMPLICATED
  IS A FORMER MINISTER OF HEALTH
  ACCUSED OF KNOWINGLY ALLOWING THOUSANDS OF
  CHILDREN TO PARADE DISREGARDING THE FACT OF 
  THE ONGOING RADIOACTIVE FALLOUT
  THE MAY 1st 1986 PARADE THAT
  CELEBRATED THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF COMMUNISM IS 
  A REMINDER OF THE CRIMINAL MINDS WHO 
  RULED AT THE TIME AND MANY OF WHOM CONTINUE TO DO SO 
  IN CURRENT UKRAINE 
  NOTABLY AT THE TIME OF THE PARADE 
  THE COMMUNIST "NOMENCLATURA" OR LEADERSHIP
  OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY IN KYIV or KIEV
  APPARENTLLY WERE WERE EVACUATING THEIR FAMILIES
  note THE THEN MINISTER OF HEALTH (1986) RETAINED HIS POSTS 
       AND BECAME A MAJOR RECIPIENT AND ADMINISTRATOR OF 
  INTERNATIONAL AID FLOWING TO UKRAINE 
  since 1999 THIS PERSON BECAME A LEADING UKRAINIAN MEMBER 
        OF RESEARCH TEAMS ORGANIZED BY THE 
  USA NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE with funding from the 
  U.S. Department of Defence
  med> INITIALLY VIGOROUSLY DENIED AND THEN OBFUSCATED
       ATOMIC ENERGY AGENCIES NOW ACCEPT
  THE FACT OF THE REALITY OF AN 
  EPIDEMIC OF CHILDHOOD THYROID
  note ATOMIC ENERGY AGENCIES NOW STRESS THAT THE MAJORITY
       OF CHILDREN WITH THYROID CANCER HAVE "RECOVERED"
  A MISLEADING WELL CHOSEN TERM WITH THE INTENT TO OBSCURE  
  THE TRAGIC IMPLICATIONS FOR CHILDREN WHO WILL FACE 
  A LIFE COMPLICATED BY THE LACK OF THE THYROID GLAND
