Updates on Chernobyl

Amid the war, Pripyat Ukraine, in a ghost town still lingering with radioactive material from the world's nuclear disaster. Ukraine's armed forces and national guard members conducted combat training drills to stimulate an enemy occupation. Snipers fired at wooden targets in blown-out windows of buildings deserted since the nearby Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster in 1986 made this uninhabitable. Armored vehicles rolled down the covered streets earlier this month as men with Geiger counters looked on to check the radiation level. Chernobyl was an infamous disaster that took place during the Soviet Union. However, the drills are reportedly taking place in Pripyat, often called the ghost city by the Ukrainian government because there is no human living in the vicinity. It now uses the former city's urban landscape as a makeshift setting for its troops to fight foes from the east, west, south or even an ally from the Soviet era. Chernobyl is a good city for area training because of the abandoned buildings, streetscapes, destruction, and desolate, war-fighting vibe for those who endure the training. Parts of the area were under nuclear fallout for another century or so. This means that learning to wear proper nuclear protection is essential. Urban Training for Ukraine is more than Nuclear fallout for another century. Urban training for Ukraine is more than nuclear survival.

Though. It means outsmarting the Russian forces by fighting in a city rather than the countryside and river banks. It also means fighting in a Harsh Winter, which the Russians also endure. The training is happening while Russia has amassed more than 120,000 troops along Ukraine's eastern border while Russia simultaneously conducts routine military exercises with Belarus borders on the northwest of Ukraine War has loomed between Russia and Ukraine for a decade now, but recently in the last several years. Last month was the last straw as a mass buildup of Russian troops along the Ukrainian border and a week full of missteps by Western governments to support Ukraine.

Russia has begun its build-up of forces and mounting attacks. A Lot of strange things are happening in the world. What do you guys think? Is it safe in Chernobyl at the given radiation?
