Russians stole more than $135 mln worth of equipment and irreplaceable software from Chornobyl nuclear laboratories
According to The Washington Post, Russian occupying forces stole 698 computers, 344 cars, 1,500 radiation dosimeters, irreplaceable software, and almost all fire extinguishers from the Chornobyl nuclear laboratories.
Chornobyl officials are counting the damage done during the month the Russians were there, in which nine of their colleagues were killed and five abducted.
The huge Chornobyl nuclear power plant is no longer producing electricity. Notwithstanding, before the invasion, nearly 6,000 workers were still monitoring the lasting effects of the disastrous meltdown more than three decades ago, as well as processing spent nuclear fuel from other plants in Ukraine and Europe.
The total cost of the loss is estimated at more than $135 million.
