Ukraine: Iraqi Scientists Trained in Pripyat

Chernobyl and Eastern Europe writes that “three Texas Tech professors and their graduate students trained 27 Iraqi scientists about processes needed to clean up radioactive debris” this past June in Pripyat: “Well, that’s an interesting use of Pripyat – train Iraqis on radiation clean up techniques in a city that officials have failed to completely decontaminate over the last 23 years. If nothing else, the Iraqis learned what some of their cities may look like in the near future.”
