Russia's armored train and other stories from Ukraine

Discussed at The Drive.

Hundreds of Ukrainians trapped at Chernobyl:
More than 100 workers at Ukraine's Chernobyl nuclear power plant - the site of the world's worst nuclear disaster in 1986 - have been stuck there for more than 12 days, unable to leave after Russian forces seized the plant on the first day of the invasion.

Another 200 Ukrainian guards, who'd been in charge of security at the time of the assault, also remain trapped.


In normal times, workers would board a train from Slavutych at the start of their shift, and return home afterwards. But for the employees who were there when the Russians invaded, everything suddenly changed - they were forced to live on site.
