Russian soldiers suffering from Acute Radiation Syndrome

Or as Boaz would say, "Battle hardened".

... Russian soldiers who seized the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster drove their armoured vehicles without radiation protection through a highly toxic zone called the "Red Forest", kicking up clouds of radioactive dust, workers at the site said. ...

Pres Putin seems to have a complete disregard for the soldiers he commands.

Does not the "soldiers eat before the generals" apply here?

Why is Pres Putin sending his troops into the danger of radioactivity?

"Pres Putin seems to have a complete disregard for the soldiers he commands."

He's a strong leader. A real Ayn Rand Superman. I wish we had someone like that running our country!

@#5 ... He's a strong leader. ...

Yeah, I've seen that in the current GOP.

But, the reality is, Pres Putin does not seem to be a strong leader. Or a leader at all.

He seems to be more of an autocratic dictator. One who says, "do and say what pleases me, otherwise there will be consequences."

So the US and EU intelligence has reported that Pres Putin's advisors have been reluctant to tell him bad news.

So the advisors of someone who has a finger on The Button are afraid to say, "Sir, no, don't do that."?

I was wondering if people who have been contaminated by radioactive dust can contaminate others. It turns out they can:

That's messed up. Radiation would be a horrible way to die.

Well, duh.

So why does Pres Putin cause this to occur?

Or does your alias continue to be of the opinion...

Stunning if true. Digging trenches?:

The Pentagon confirmed Russian troops were pulling out of the irradiated nuclear wasteland, but an employee at the Public Council at the State Agency of Ukraine for Exclusion Zone Management said they were running away "irradiated".

He said they were being transported by the bus load to a special radiation medical centre in Gomel, Belarus to help treat their radioactive poisoning.

In a post on facebook, Yaroslav Yemelianenko, who worked to keep the site safe, said: "Another batch of radiation irradiation of Russian terrorists who captured the Chernobyl zone, was brought to the Belarusian center of radiation medicine in Gomel today.

"Digging the trenches in the Rudu forest, bitches? Now live the rest of your short life with this. There are rules of handling this territory.

"They are mandatory to perform because radiation is physics--it works regardless of status or chases. If you have minimal intelligence in command or [sic] soldiers, these consequences could have been avoided."

He went onto quote a Belarusian TV channel which said "about 7 medical PAZs arrived at the Republican Scientific and Practical Center for Radiation Medicine and Human Ecology.

Yes digging trenches. This is after what was reported in the original article. This is them "pulling back" - all the way to Chernobyl. It's like they are so uninformed and/or naive they were going to dig in around Chernobyl.

There are also reports of "Ghost" buses pretty much going through Belarus back to Russia - the occupants are all dead.

The workers also reported the Russian soldiers didn't know what Chernobyl is. Mind blowing. The officers should have known.

Russian propaganda machines will no doubt claim that Ukraine/western forces have started using radioactive warfare.

Question for our DR veterans and active duty military:

Would you prefer to be flash-fried by the enemy or slow-roasted by your own commander?

flash frying for me, please.

I watched "Chernobyl."

Why did they even want Chernobyl in the first place?

Nothing Russia has done in the past month makes any sense.

At all.

If they blew up Chernobyl wouldn't that take out all of the people in Ukraine??

#21 | Posted by LauraMohr at 2022-03-31 04:10 PM | Reply

The fact that it makes no sense makes me question it's veracity.

Duh?

#22 | Posted by Effeteposer at 2022-03-31 06:24 PM | Reply

#20 - I was under the impression that Chernobyl is still part of the Ukrainian power grid, and the early plan was to turn out the lights in all, or at least a significant portion of the country. I guess Putin thought the Ukrainians were afraid of the dark.

No. But it would spread radiation throughout Europe and that includes Belarus and Russia - again.
