Russia is a land of tragedy.

Chernobyl is in Ukraine. Just sayin'

Luckily, Ukraine is also a land of tragedy.

Well. It's not lucky for Ukrainians, I guess.

These guys were dead anyhow. I suppose it's better off they dies fast, as hero, than slowly as discarded decomposing radiation victims.

all the other helicopter pilots and crews that flew over the reactor died within a matter of weeks

check out the book "voices from chernobyl" - it's an oral history of the disaster if this sort of thing interests you

Also, if I remember correctly, it was the firefighting efforts that made the whole thing so deadly in the first place.

Well, the reactor exploding might have had something to do with the danger factor.
