I highly recommend watching this series.

It is based on a series of recordings made by the guy, Valery Lagesov, who helped keep the thing from destroying the whole continent, and were released and smuggled out of Ukraine shortly after he took his own life.

It lays out a stark picture of how communist regimes operate to preserve the honor of the state, regardless of the costs to the world in damage or human life. Terrifying ****.

Yep, and I’m eagerly awaiting the soon to be released HBO series “Wuhan”.
Interestingly...

Mother Russia's rebuttal to this guys story when it first came out was that a US scientist/spy had infiltrated Russia's energy agency and was at the Chernobyl Nuclear power Plant that night. He allegedly sabotaged the #4 reactor, causing the explosion.

Where have I heard something like that before??

https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/chinese-officials-blame-us-army-for-coronavirus-67267

A Chinese official who has a history of attacking the United States online has lent a voice to a conspiracy theory that blames American soldiers for bringing COVID-19 to China, though the science does not support that narrative.

According to the unfounded accusation, which reports say has been widely shared on the popular Chinese social media platform Weibo, the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 was introduced to China when 300 US military members arrived in the Wuhan region for the Military World Games in mid-October and infected the local population. None of the servicemembers who made the trip have tested positive for the virus.

The rumors seemed to begin when Chinese respiratory specialist Zhong Nanshan stated at a February press conference that “though the COVID-19 was first discovered in China, it does not mean that it originated from China,” planting the seeds of doubt.

On Thursday (March 12), Zhao Lijian, the spokesperson of China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, took to Twitter, a social platform banned in China, to ask, “When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals? It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!”

Just watched the series over the weekend. Really, really good. The lazy, stupid communist leaders tried to ignore the disaster, then lie about it, then cover it up.

Legasov was a key part of the scientific community that forced Gorbachev and his cabinet to take immediate, serious action. However, in terms of the Soviets admitting the truth - they did so only after Sweden reported tests showing a leak of Soviet uranium, which is marked with identifiers so we can track who is responsible.

I especially liked how the Soviet workers - the blue collar guys - were awesome. The spoiled, bloated government hacks who hold power as a measure of butt-kissing and favoritism? Not so much.

Which leads me to an aside. I have felt for years that the idiotic Russia panic of 2016 did incredible harm to our nation by driving the United States away from Russia as a sorta-ally. Russia hates China. Russia fears China. Russia would have been a staunch ally against China.

Instead, the imbeciles in Congress shrieking about "RUSSIA! RUSSIA! RUSSIA!" have poisoned any possible relationship between the United States and Russia to take on the one nation that is more likely than any other to poison the world with pollution, corruption, lies, theft, and disease - China.

I suspect that behind the scenes Trump and Putin are on better footing than they would ever let on for the sake of Putin's hold on power, and the endless accusations by American "media."

GWB really pushed NATO towards Russia's borders. It is not wise to threaten the Bear.
Russia could be an ally against China and Islamists. Same with India.

One of the saddest things about the whole Russia collusion hoax is that it effectively prevented Trump (i.e. the USA) from actually engaging the Russians over our mutual interests. I understand many of the cautions in dealing with them, yet the Deep State approach is wrought with problems. I can’t help but think the DS is simply covering up the money they’re pocketing from China in the “Russia bad” narrative.

BTW - one of the best series I’ve seen in a long time.

That **** was brutal. Some of it was pretty hard to watch. I have a cousin who went in to Three Mile Island for the clean up. That **** is drop-dead serious.
