Why no imagery using historical footage?[edit]

That would lend a great deal of actuality to the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:31, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Still need it. Ukrained2012 (talk) 11:31, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Death Figures[edit]

There are three bulletized death figure statements for the numbers dead of the liquidators. Are there any specific statistics that show what amount of these deaths can be attributed directly to their work on the reactor? In particular, are there statistics for the expected numbers of deaths from equivalent populations of, say, normal industrial workers or even farmers in the area against which these death rates could be inspected? It doesn't sound too far out of whack for 10% of the liquidators to have died in the intervening years, given the hardships of normal industrial work or the presumed age spread of those involved in the work.

Kyshtym 'liquidators'[edit]

According to this piece[1] (Inside the Zone attributed to ALEXANDER ZAITCHIK) about the Kyshtym disaster aftermath), the term 'liquidator' was in use at that time (September, 1957). That they were 'drafted' for dangerous work suggests derivation of term may go waaaay back. (Haven't pursued that further.) Twang (talk) 22:31, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Looks like a meticulous self-promotion by a young Russian immigrant( We need more sources originating from Kyshtym disaster times. Ukrained2012 (talk) 11:05, 16 February 2013 (UTC)


I sugggest writing the Liquidator term in italics in all Chernobyl-related articles due to its multiple meanings in English-speaking world. In Ukrainian though "liquidator" unambiguosly refers to the accident. Happy edits, Ukrained2012 (talk) 22:56, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Redirects (and name for future split article)[edit]

For now, I'm redirecting those here. In future, I'd suggest a split article from the extra-long Chernobyl disaster describing relief operation itself: events after the immediate accident and before long-term consequences. Wishes, Ukrained2012 (talk) 11:07, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Liquidator (Chernobyl)Chernobyl liquidators – In English, liquidators are people who dispose of assets in multiple contexts; this meaning is quite different. English readers are more likely to be looking for this topic under Chernobyl than "liquidators" but keep this one as a redirect. Per the article, the formal title was "participant in liquidation of the Chernobyl NPP accident consequences" so we're not literally translating anyway.
