This is beyond a lie, this is just fantasy at this point. https://t.co/V9V3bkjuMY

Right. This is apparently not true at all. It’s also not true that Russia kicked up a huge cloud of radioactive dust when they left the “Red Forest” around Chernobyl. There’s also a claim that fires have hit the area and Ukraine has not been able to send firefighters, so the claim is that radiation will pour out due to burning the irradiated trees.
Problems with this story:
The old trees were all cut down and buried. The whole forest in there is new trees. Probably little to no radiation in them.
The old dirt was all removed and buried and new dirt was trucked in. The new dirt probably has little to no radiation in it.
So they cut down all the trees and then they removed all the dirt and replace both.
The story about the Russian soldiers getting radiated is apparently not true. Apparently they are being checked for radiation exposure, but that’s routine due to where they were posted.
