Thunderbird spring 2018


The Spring 2018 edition of The Thunderbird — Chernobyl: The Facts — debunks the propaganda that downplays and dismisses the seriousness of the April 26, 1986 nuclear disaster in Ukraine. We expose why Chernobyl health figures from the World Health Organization cannot be trusted and examine the very real and long-lasting damage caused by Chernobyl to people, animals and the environment. This newsletter can be downloaded, printed and distributed freely.
