Russia and the Eurasian Republics
"The most boring article in the world"
Chernobyl is so interesting and cool, it has so many facts. One good fact is that Chernobyl is a nuclear power plant and blew up on April 26,1986. The radioactive explosion went for over 3,280 feet, that is a super range! The wing blew the fallout to spread even farther,that made it go into Sweden. Chernobyl's explosion was a horrible mistake made by scientists, killing around 4,000 people. I think that is too many killed by a minor mistake.
The Trans-Siberian Railroad is very important to the people of Russia. People use it to cross heavy terrain and take them through the country of Russia. It is a Russian monument to all of the people of Russia,that is why they have 1st class and 2nd class. Many Russian military soldiers were enlisted to build the railroad. The soldiers were given pickaxes and shovels to build it.
