The Russians Are Mad at HBO And Doing Their Own Chernobyl Series – Blaming the CIA

Well that was one hell of a headline to write.

HBO’s Chernobyl is a solid show. Obviously the subject matter is tough because so many people died or were misplaced and the ensuing cover-up by the Soviet Union was terrible, though expected because when you know what hits the fan, nobody wants to take credit for screwing everything up. Hence scapegoats, lies, and persuasion thru intimidation. But the show itself explained the story in what I thought was a fair matter. That is, until now.

Because according to the Moscow Times, the Russians aren’t too pleased with HBO or the West… and want to tell THEIR side of the story. Which includes blaming the CIA and saying that the CIA sabotaged the Chernobyl nuclear plant.

The series is expected to be on Russia’s NTV channel and they claim that, and I quote, “An agent of the enemy’s intelligence services was present at the station [Chernobyl].”

Oh. I see.
