The testing grounds at Semipalatinsk are 1000 times more radioactive than any measured in Hiroshima (if you bothered to read my post). In 1997 half the children born in the city hospital had birth defects. Civilians in the neighboring FSU republics in the path of the radiation plume are also suffering.
Not only is this article not only NOT “propagandistic lies”-it is way understated as to the death and misery suffered by people exposed to inhuman irresponsible Russian actions in pursuit of military and economic progress at any human cost.
Disastrous claims from opponents aside, the worst US event was the Japanese fishing boat washed with fallout in the Pacific. And they were cleaned up and compensated.
Walking/marching through fallout areas by military units does NOT equal the long-term exposure by these nearby residents.
