what would those nuclear plant technicians do without lesjar? they surely wouldnt figure out compatibility problem of fuel rods without him. those morons would surely try to insert evil western fuel rods into an incompatible reactor! idiots i say.
I also dont see any problem in storing nuclear waste in area which is ruined anyway. how long will be the area uninhabitable? for centuries?
soviet nuclear engineering was truly amazing. in one swift stroke they demonstrated how a large nuclear meltdown looks like & prepared the area for future storage of waste. geniuses!
