Your last words "No doses mentioned..." pushed me to come out of silence.
The newspaper can link the questionable statistic to the Chernobyl accident,
partially because the general statistical data are corrupted.
I worked in zone full time May, in and out June-August, and again full time
in September-November of 1986. I was wearing a monitoring badge continuously
and consciously, exchanging as required, but, despite my attempts, I was not
able to get my exposure history since. Does it exist or disappear, the same
way as USSR, for thousands liquidators?
Another example. During my private visit to Kiev, I have met with few high
rank bureaucrats, who awarded themselves, and closet circuit around them,
"liquidator" status never participating in, but getting many valuable
benefits. Thus, the total number of liquidators far a way from the actual.
This is widespread occurrence.
The newspaper 's "green" spin is pure propaganda. I'd like to use antispin
by linking the cancer frequency increase, the sperm count, "Chernobyl
chromosome" to enormous amount of alcohol consumptions. I witnessed that in
zone, in 1986. I wish the newspaper
will choose this topic, next time.
*My fellow liquidators,*
*Twenty years after I hope you and your dearest are in a good health,*
*Accomplished a lot and looking forward to future successes.*
