Russia says the US was behind the Chornobyl accident. This is a false claim. Russia analyst Paul Goble says:
... in a new 12-part Russian television series devoted to the 1986 Chornobyl disaster. Presenting itself as based on “real events,” the series traces the heroic but ultimately unsuccessful efforts of the Ukrainian section of the KGB to block a CIA agent from blowing up Chornobyl.
Those behind this series are certainly aware that more Russians will watch it than will ever read careful studies, including Russian ones, that show an entirely different version of events and will accept this fanciful one without any concern for the facts. It is likely that as tensions between Russia and the West deepen, more such TV serials will thus appear in Moscow.
