On April 26, 1986, one of the most devastating nuclear disasters in history occurred at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant near Pripyat, Ukraine. An explosion at Chernobyl's reactor number 4 destroyed the facility's protections against nuclear radiation and sent massive quantities of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere. In the aftermath of the disaster, scientists and historians have studied Chernobyl in order to determine exactly what went wrong. Was the catastrophe simply a tragic failure of nuclear safety systems? Or did something more than a mere accident happen at Chernobyl?

The official narrative of the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl does not tell the whole story.
Eyewitness accounts indicate the presence of UFOs near Pripyat and the environs of Chernobyl before, during, and after the nuclear disaster. During the month prior to the disaster, local pilots had observed increased UFO activity in the area. The former Soviet official newspaper Pravda subsequently reported that hundreds of people witnessed a UFO hovering over the Chernobyl plant for roughly six hours during the disaster. Pravda also reported that the UFO was responsible for a four-times reduction of the radiation levels released by the destroyed reactor, saving people and the environment from the deadliest effects of the disaster. Whatever the role of the alien presence, Chernobyl was not solely a man-made accident.
