Thrilling investigation into the ghosts of the Soviet Union and the mind of a Ukrainian artist on a quest to discover the 'criminal' behind the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Unforgettably eccentric artist Fedor Alexandrovich begins his quest by revealing to the world an enormous secret Soviet weapon that stands in the shadow of Chernobyl, but what Fedor discovers is much more sinister.

Not sure what I just witnessed with this one. It seems to point to a nuclear disaster perpetrated to cover up a massive blunder in the USSR. Lives lost, ecological disaster that will last centuries or millenia, people displaced, political malfeasance. Funky performance art?

This documentary by Ukranian artist Fedor Alexandrvich is an investigation into the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl. The dark secret that he stumbles upon proves once again that truth is stranger than fiction.

Interesting insight into how controlling and corrupt the Russian/Soviet government was and is. These tapping woodpecker-like radio signals are being transmitted to the US by this monstrous antennae from near the Chernobyl sight. Nobody knows why. Very strange.

the theory that Chernobyl was blown up on purpose is so crazy, but you never know when it comes to Russia
