Wide access were first classified American intelligence report about the accident at the Chernobyl NPP in 1986. It was published by the national security archive of the United States. The paper reported about the possible number of victims of the explosion at the plant. Details according to RBC.
The report was Morton Abramowitz. He sent it in the name of U.S. Secretary of state George Shultz may 2, 1986. The document is refuted by the official number of victims of the accident (in official sources reported two dead).
Abramowitz writes that during the day shift on the RBMK-1000 reactor are about 100 people. At night there should work approximately 25-30 employees. “As the third and fourth units are located close to each other, near the last could be about 200 people by day and 70 by night” – concludes Abramowitz. He also notes that judging by the photos of destruction, all who were close to the fourth reactor killed immediately, or have received lethal doses of radiation.
Recall that nuclear fourth reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Pripyat, exploded on 26 April 1986. It was reported that the explosion killed one employee of the station, the second died in the first hours after the accident. However, if radiation sickness has documented more than 100 people, dozens of them died a few months after the disaster
