Russian Colonel-General Vladimir Shamanov said that talk about the alleged irradiation of Russian fighters in the “Red Forest” and Chernobyl is a lie.
The General said:
These positions were occupied by partisans during the Great Patriotic [War] and none of them had radiation sickness!
The Chernobyl accident occurred in 1986, probably the Russian general had an attack of temporary amnesia, which, however, is not surprising, because Russian troops have already occupied positions in Chernobaevka 12 times and were destroyed 12 times.
It is not possible to explain these facts with anything other than the mental inferiority of the Russian generals.
