This film shows the terrifying images captured by the Russian filmmaker Vladimir Shevchenko on scene at Chernobyl those dreadful days in April 1986. Shevchenko later died suffering from the radiation he exposed himself to. Although his name is not among the official casualties of the accident, this last tragic film of him keeps his name alive forever.

Comments

Dominique Charriere : The workers were sent to their death, most knew, as it was the case with the first to arrive, the Chernobyl fire brigade. These were true heroes.

cynaraos : Looking at most of the comments on this video, I doubt any of the commenters truly know what happened that fateful night.

William Gill_Esq. : Unreal. God bless all the hero liquidators of Chernobyl, and the man who made this film.

Jan B. : PaintAnimation101: the fuzziness, or "50s look", is caused by the film itself absorbing radiation from the surroundings.

Camshaft Shaft : Either way the men of Chernobyl are Hero's and the men weren't on strike when it happened it was a test they were performing to see if they could still get power with the fuel rods lifted out and they didn't keep cooling the reactor properly! Government idiots are the cause of this explosion trying to save money it's always about greed always! Peace everyone!

Ana Castellano : They should have shut down the test when the alarms sounded. But it's a lesson learned for future generations.

Ford F150 : This man was brave enough to make this amazing but truly sad film of Chernobyl. Witnessing miners working without protective clothing, the biorobots, and the helicopter crash, which I had never seen before until now.

Katzenberg : Today 28 years before. The night of the end of the world.

CameraCapers : Bless them all!

Sylvio Bazote : Vídeo muito interessante. Por inocência ou coragem, as pessoas morrem para registrar a História.

Nuno Bettencourt : True heroes 🙏💪❤️

Crumpled Pages : it wasn't russia, it was the USSR confederation, in Ukraine.

Sean Langwell : Go play S.T.A.L.K.E.R. that'll show u what it's like

tonnhard : thanks for the video. it tells a story the world needs to know.

MosinNagantR : chernobyl happened because the workers went on strike and werent working like they were supposed to. they didnt understand how fragile and delicate nuclear fission is and how dangerous it is. because of those people, many innocent lives were lost and many innocent children were deformed due to the radiation. :(

GreenDayRoxer1 : Unsung heroes...

IamCorgidan : Actually. they can, and it's in fact better for the animals since it isn't safe for us to live there.

J Stef : Animals can't survive there either now.

Nik Amirul : *******

RaccoonHF : Fuck you. fucking shitbag

Nik Amirul : DAFUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU!!

Nik Amirul : Feel Sad About chernobyl,(Like ur watching this in 2013 :) )

Jellybeans Me : I just can't believe how they (nuclear power plant owners) feel they had the right to send innocent everyday people in to clean up there shitty mess! How dare they!! You guys built it...you guys mend it!! So sad

binarysoup : yes indeed. mankind greedy ones opend the box of pandora and still don´t know what they are doing. Worldwide about 300 more nuclear powerplants are planed to be build in the future and even if nothing happens (an impossible scenario because we are humans) nobody knows what to do with all the atomic waste that is toxicating wide areas.

Antonio Pereira : Your movie made me so sad. I am unhappy now. Why suffered heroes are allways unknown? Thanks for your movie.

Sharona Gelico : This is so sad :(

opetrenko : People make a bigger deal out of medium or low doses on the scales of months and years (there are places in the world with LOW cancer rates but radiation background 10 times higher than the 20mSv per year Fukushima exclusions zone). But 10 Roentgens (100mSv) PER HOUR? Damn... Check out the NOVA video. They actually had some scientists having to hop in and out of areas of 500-1000 Roentgens per hour... (1000 Roentgens is the cutoff for any serious chance of survival, from Radworker training)

560pizza : This is Ukraine you idiot

Paliv : Wow, just amazing.

FrostBanana : Oh, ok. I saw this morning that there has been a steam leak in Fukushima. Does that mean it's still boiling/fissioning inside ? steam don't produce itself.

Michael Simonetti : I'm pretty sure that was after the meltdown, that's what this guy filmed.

Michael Simonetti : There was both a meltdown and an explosion actually. The graphite moderator was the reason for the ignition/explosion.

John Bonner : Chernobyl is in Ukraine fucktard. I hope a hot stone gets shoved up your ass for being so insensitive.

plantaan26 : He is a egyptian muslim, I think that explains the most, When i was there they wanted to buy my girlfriend for 200 camels.

Cyphik : There are a lot of major financial interests across the globe that don't want people to know exactly how many people have become casualties of chernoblyl. Organizations and people who have a lot of money and status to lose, should it be known the true dangers of old tech nuclear reactors we all live close to. Nuclear energy is a catch 22, more work needs to be done to build safer and cleaner power.

Mastorus : you made me sad....

hellya uarme : F is a good letter

coasteraddict10 : Or reinvent nuclear so that we're not desperately trying to stop a meltdown but trying to encourage it (the idea being it's much easier for a meltdown to occur if you're always trying to stop it compared to it being inherently harder for a reactor to meltdown if you're trying to get it so to produce energy.

coasteraddict10 : Erm, no I think that's the back of the reactor at an angle, you can actually see bits of the top that has been blown off as the closer reactor is no.3 the far one is 4 which looks a bit messed up haha.

james c : there were two explosions the first being steam and the second believed to be hydrogen

FrostBanana : The reactor never exploded, it melted and caused the collapsing.

John Doe : Your english test grade F-

John Doe : 1:47 HOLY SH*T! THATS THE REACTOR BEFORE IT EXPLODED! THATS WHAT IVE BEEN LOOKING FOR! HOLY SH*T!

Lee Mooney : The world owes a huge debt of gratitude to the bravery of those poor Ukrainian souls who knowingly gave their lives to stop this catastrophe from getting any worse than it did. Ladies and gentlemen on behalf of the UK I salute you and your families for making the ultimate sacrifice over a problem not of your own making.

rdejano3 - Mile & Dejo : WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST READ?!?!?

meire farias : We should learn from this and say no to Nuclear Energy....So sad what happened there it broke my heart. From Brazil.

AIKISBEST : I would have expected this kind of comment from an american, but a fellow swede? Shame one you....

Anton Svantesson : You give us Swedish people bad reputation

FureyXIII : Just think, the Russians weren't going to tell anyone - until alarms started going off in Europe.... yeah, "Thanks Russia..."
