Survived nuclear tests: a terrible story of a pensioner who lives in the basement due to shelling
The situation in Kharkov/Channel 24 Collage
The situation in Kharkiv has somewhat calmed down, but in the region it is the opposite. In some areas of the city, people continue to live in shelters or basements.
Our correspondent from Kharkov managed to talk to one of these women, who continues to live in the basement due to enemy shelling by Russians. She spoke about this on Channel 24.
Survived nuclear tests
According to her, the elderly woman does not want to leave her hometown. Volunteers help her with everything. She practically lives by candlelight, as the journalist said.
The pensioner explained her unwillingness to evacuate to her.
I don't want to. This is my city. I got this apartment by blood and sweat. I survived Semipalatinsk (a city in Kazakhstan – 24 channels). There were open nuclear tests, – the woman shared.
The woman frankly admitted that it was much easier to survive these “experiments” with nuclear weapons.
“Because we knew from nuclear tests that we were alive, they would put windows back in. And here you can’t predict when they will shoot,” she added.
Help. From 1949 to 1990 The USSR conducted 715 tests at the Semipalatinsk test site, on Novaya Zemlya and elsewhere in Russia and Kazakhstan. This is one of the largest landfills in the world. On August 29, 1991, it was closed.
