There are so many problems with that I don't know where to start, but lets start with your source for your claim about when the meltdown started in Fukushima.
You know that the melt down was already started with the reactor vessel breaking within the first seconds due to shock waves from the quake? The tsunami wasn't the reason although the media try everything to promote this as earthquakes can happen anywhere in the world. If we believe it was the tsunami they can say 'A tsunami can't happen here so we are save'.
True, I meant Fukushima when I talked about maintaining backup power. That wasn't an issue with Chernobyl, sorry for the brain fart.

Chernobyl was due to gross negligence and pushing the max power test too far
there is a Russian movie about it on you tube
That actually sounds somewhat plausible but I'd love to see the source for that.
As a result of Fukushima, repairs to nuclear facilities in Europe that were previously deferred due to cost, were suddenly carried out (in total, over 1000 major repairs or upgrades were made in the wake of Fukushima).
