Think about it this way...

"Volunteer" may be a questionable word here. Many of the people who were sent in after the Chernobyl incident were not 'volunteers' as much as they were ordered in to do it. They didn't really have any choice. Death or severe injury was a very likely outcome for them. They didn't personally cause the disaster, but they were sent in to clean it up. Whether they volunteered for this assignment or not isn't really relevant here. What is relevant is they went in and did it.

Wouldn't you think something like that is meritorious?

The Chernobyl disaster itself was a horrific crime of negligence against the entire globe, but it was afterall, an accident.

Just look at what happened in Fukishima when people didn't run into the radioactive flames and twisted wreckage. Had this happened in Chernobyl it could have been far worse.

How is it any different than running into a hail of gunfire for your country? The soldier didn't start the war, and he might not even agree with why it was started, but he has to go into battle all the same. And if he conducts himself with valor in the process I see no issue with giving him a medal.

There's an HBO series about the event coming up later this spring. You should put that thing on and watch it.
