How "authentic" is it...did you do any homework before buying it?

Cool find though.

Huh.

They actually have a series of them and a 30 year commemorative.

Never even heard of them... cool find and thanks for sharing!

If you want to collect the rest of them, just Amazon search "Chernobyl liquidators medal"

When I think about everything that happened to those poor men and the sacrifices they made it gave me chills.

It makes one hell of a statement .

I will state the obvious. That is bizarre. Guess you have a taste for the macabre.

That was absoutely a human traagedy. The fact that commemorative metals are being made to "honor" celebrate" the death and destruction to life and nature is really "off" "odd" and not at all impressive.

However, definitely, an unusual find. Is that why you bought it?

actually i will because you cant really be that thick'


The liquidators are widely credited with limiting both the immediate and long-term damage from the disaster.



Many liquidators were praised as heroes by the Soviet government and the press, while some struggled for years to have their participation officially recognized.



Firefighters who immediately responded to the reactor accident



Civil Defense Troops of the Soviet Armed Forces who intensively worked on removal of contaminated materials and deactivation on the reactor itself and all affected territories



groups of female janitors tasked with cleanup of food left inside abandoned homes to prevent outbreaks of infectious disease



Soviet Air Force and civil aviation units who fulfilled critical helicopter-assisted operations on the reactor building, air transportation and aerial radioactive contamination monitoring



A team of coal miners who built a large protective foundation to prevent radioactivity from entering the aquifer below the reactor.


jesus christ man

get with it

Obviously, you stated they were made for the volunteers. Bizarre. Who would want to remember?

Dead serious. Not meant to be funny.

This is just a sad reminder. Really, bad taste. Maybe something lost in the translation to our western culture, but you found it worth owning so there's that. I guess.
