Ukraine sends troops to defend CHERNOBYL: Radioactive exclusion zone lies along shortest path between Russia and Kiev
Ukraine sends troops to defend CHERNOBYL: Radioactive exclusion zone lies along shortest path between Russia and Kiev

Fields lie fallow, cities are empty, and the entire Chernobyl zone in northern Ukraine is still so radioactive that it seems to be the last place on Earth that anyone would want to conquer.

But while most of the attention around a potential Russian invasion is focused on the troop build-up and daily fighting in the east, the shortest route from Russia to the Ukrainian capital Kiev is from the north. And it passes through the isolated zone around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, where a reactor meltdown in 1986 caused the worst nuclear disaster in history.

In one of the inconsistencies of the war, this makes Chernobyl a territory that Ukraine thinks it must defend, forcing its military to deploy security forces in a spooky and still radioactive forest where they have weapons and equipment to detect radiation exposure.

“It doesn’t matter if it is infected or no one lives here,” said Yury Shakhraichuk, Lieutenant Colonel of the Ukrainian Border Service. “This is our territory, our country, and we must protect it.”

Forces in the area known as the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone would not be strong enough to repel an invasion should it occur; this is mainly for detecting warning signs. “We collect information about the situation on the border” and pass it on to the Ukrainian special services,” Colonel Shakhraichuk said.

The concept of the Chernobyl exclusion zone, created by the Soviet authorities three decades ago, was to limit the death rate from an accident at a nuclear power plant through isolation. Radioactive particles left in the soil or stuck under the protective structure of a destroyed reactor, as long as they slowly decay, do not pose much of a danger to soldiers, as long as these soldiers do not linger in heavily irradiated areas. But the land must be abandoned, in some places for hundreds of years.

Two months ago, the government sent additional forces to the area because of heightened tensions with Russia and Belarus, a Kremlin ally that borders five miles from the burned-out reactor and to which Russia has recently deployed troops

Will Putin drop a nuke into Chernobyl?
