    On the occasion of the 35th anniversary of the Chernobyl catastrophe, an article by Anatolii Khromov, Head of the State Archival Service of Ukraine, entitled “The situation in Pripyat is normal, the radiation level is controlled” was published on “Historical Truth”.

    In his article, the Head of the State Archive Service stressed that the decision to evacuate the population had been postponed for more than 24 hours and started only on April 27, and also spoke about the party leadership’s default on the main facts and preconditions of the Chernobyl disaster.

    “The rescue was based on the unconditional donation of all those who personally put out the fire at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, dumped sand and boron into the throat of the destroyed reactor, treated burns of irradiated liquidators, receiving dangerous doses,” Anatolii Khromov said in his article.
