5 days ago It was announced that Russia has taken control of the old power plant, Chernobyl, and I am going to tell you why. The reason that Russia has taken over Chernobyl is because of it’s location. Chernobyl is less than 10 miles from the Ukraine border, Belarus, and also serves as a way to the Ukraine capital, Kyiv, It being a straight shot south 80 miles. They mostly want it because they want to take control of the whole country. Unfortunately, the Russians taking over had led to heightened level of Radiation which will negatively affect both sides. That is all for now, stay tuned for more updates on the situation.
