The Occupiers Kill Those Who Saved Them

Invaders raised the price of medicine vital to the liquidators of the Chornobyl disaster

In occupied Kherson lives a large number of workers NPP and liquidators of the tragedy of the Chornobyl nuclear power plant. In 1986, these people took the brunt of the attack — went to the emergency zone, put out fires, and built a sarcophagus. The liquidators were irradiated because radiation levels in Chornobyl were several hundred times higher than normal. Some heroes died. Others survived, but have thyroid problems. It helps people to keep the cure alive.

People are still alive because of the special medicine. One of the drugs L-thyroxine. It disappeared from pharmacies in the southern part of the country at the beginning of the war. L-Thyroxine cannot be delivered to the occupied territories due to the lack of humanitarian corridors and disrupted logistics.

Eutirox is another drug needed by the Chornobyl disaster liquidators. It still exists in the occupied Kherson region. However, the cost of this drug has increased almost 9 times. Eutirox was worth $4 when Kherson was under the control of the Ukrainian government. $30 new cost of the drug from the moment the Russian troops entered the territory of the Kherson region.

That amount is too much for the people who worked at the nuclear plant and eliminated the tragedy. Since most of the victims are already elderly people and lived on Ukrainian pensions.

The inability to obtain drugs increases the likelihood that such people will die painfully. And that was after they saved the Commonwealth of independent states from radiation.
