What Is `Chernobyl-Two' Actually?

A few days ago, the independent trade union of Ukrainian servicemen disseminated a statement that dealt with the once secret "Chernobyl-Two" facility.

I happened to visit that cantonment prior to the Chernobyl catastrophe and after it. I was there more than once -- last time relatively recently. That facility has interested me for quite some time -- after the passenger aircraft "Leningrad-Kiev-Leningrad" was blown up above it. I raised this issue in the press several times asking "What is `Chernobyl-Two' Actually?" My first publication under this title appeared in 1989. At first, those in power, the so-called "competent agencies," said nothing, but later some information started to surface. It is only now that a properly qualified group has legally entered the facility and tried to establish the truth. This is reassuring, though the truth is sad. This is encouraging.

Even though 10 years have passed since the Chernobyl catastrophe, the 30-kilometer estrangement zone still harbors many mysteries. One of them is the cantonment "Chernobyl-Two," which was once the USSR Defense Ministry's top-secret facility. Well, why once? It remains so now if one is to believe the statement by the independent trade union of Ukraine's servicemen that was signed by its chairman Oleksandr Lalak, deputy of the Kiev Council, and the VECHIRNIY KYYIV publication of 12 April 1996. There is no reason to mistrust those documents. However, "Chernobyl- Two" no longer works for the USSR Defense Ministry, but seems to provide services for the Russian Defense Ministry. Yuriy Samoylov writes in his 12 April article in VECHIRNIY KYYIV entitled "Whom Does the Mysterious `Chernobyl-Two' Service?": "When the "swoop" team got into Technological Zone-3, a group of people emerged from nowhere and openly showed its hostile intentions. The hats of those unknown people sported brightly shining cockades with the two-headed eagle [the Russian coat of arms]." Considering that the "Chernobyl-Two" facility was an integral part of the USSR anti-missile space defense system, which has now become Russian, it is perfectly logical that it still provides for Russia's defense interests, like, for example, the radioelectronic complex near Mukachevo [in Ukraine's Transcarpathia] that has even been legalized by a relevant Ukrainian-Russian accord. As regards "Chernobyl-Two," no open official accords exist, which does not rule out the existence of secret accords at a certain level.

Generally speaking, the 30-kilometer "estrangement zone" is a kind of state within a state. All the more so the "Chernobyl-Two" facility may be looked upon as a state within a state of the "estrangement zone" -- it does not formally belong to anyone and everybody in Ukraine disowns it point blank. At the same time, as the "swoop" group of independent specialists has established, all of its main systems are functioning and are vigilantly guarded by special units of an unknown country, units that have nothing to do either with the "Prypyat" MNTK [probably the Interdepartmental Scientific and Technological Complex] or Ukraine's Defense Ministry. (Though, allegedly, in the summer of 1988 the military handed it over for free to the enterprise "Kombinat" [Combine]). The administration of the "estrangement zone" and the "Prypyat" Research and Production Association are, ostensibly, units of Ukraine's Ministry of Chernobyl. In fact, however, or at any rate this was my impression, they are still subordinated to Moscow rather than to Kiev. Leading posts are mainly occupied by specialists from Russia who are in many cases Russian citizens. The Russian language prevails everywhere and, I would say, the Ukrainian state and its symbols are openly ignored. It is not a problem to illegally deploy there special units of the Russian Armed Forces (they may be brought in and out via Belarus), because three states are in charge of guarding the "Chernobyl-Two" facility, stringent limitations are in effect in what concerns movements of journalists or other undesirables in the "estrangement zone," and at the same time, the border with Belarus in the area of the "estrangement zone" is actually open." It is also known that pertinent accords exist with Russia. And also the Russian Strategic Missile Division in the area between the Dnieper and the Prypyat. Hence, if such a need arises, it is possible, in just two or three hours, under the pretext of changing guards or yet another resettlement, to bring thousands of servicemen from the Russian special- purpose units to the Ukrainian capital by bus, and this would not arouse any suspicion. Let us hope that this D-day will never take place, but even the most unlikely variants should not be ruled out. The rules that prevail in the "estrangement zone" are a topic for special discussion. What is "Chernobyl-Two"? According to Oleksandr Lalak, it is a residential complex, the "Lastivka" [Swallow] Hotel, a helicopter field, and also four technological zones: The first zone -- two over-the-horizon antennas of the radar complex; the second -- the space communications center with the antenna complex of the "Kruh" [Circle] facility; the third -- the bioenergy antenna; and the fourth is the laser interferometer graviton. I can add something to Major Lalak's testimony. The antennas and other external features that stick out like the wolf's ears in the "Red Riding Hood" fairy tale and that betray the supersecret "Chernobyl-Two" facility are just the visible parts of this, so to say, iceberg. Its main part is under the surface. "Chernobyl-Two" could well be called an underground town.

Somewhat at a distance -- a kilometer or two away from the "Chernobyl-Two" surface town, there is a carefully camouflaged underground reserve command station. Here, during the building of "Chernobyl-Two," attempts were made to hide as much as possible, because preparations were being made for a nuclear war -- just the gigantic antennas, more than 100 meters in height, can be seen over many kilometers. "Chernobyl-Two" was not only built as an anti- missile defense system complex, a facility for space surveillance and communications, and an important research center. Several military units were also deployed there. The air defense system of "Chernobyl-Two" may be judged at least by its destruction of the passenger aircraft on its flight from Leningrad to Kiev at the end of the 1970's, when the aircraft accidentally strayed into the forbidden zone.

Laser pulse weapons were also developed there. They are allegedly capable of destroying, by a powerful energy pulse, not just missiles, but even artificial Earth satellites in space. Clearly, "Chernobyl-Two" required a great deal of electricity, and a considerable part of the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant [AES] capacities was used precisely for providing energy for "Chernobyl-Two." They constituted a single integral system. It is not by accident that one of the versions explaining the catastrophe at the Chernobyl AES on 26 April 1986 (because smaller-scale accidents happened there before) ties up the cause of the tragedy with experiments at "Chernobyl-Two." Some people believe that psychotronic [psikhotronnyy] weapons were developed there and nuclear weapons were manufactured [apart from electricity, the Chernobyl AES also produced weapons-grade plutonium), and so on -- endless versions, conjectures, and rumors invariably emerge whenever there is no exhaustive information that lends itself to verification. It would therefore be best to put an end to all sort of rumors and speculations about "Chernobyl-Two" by urgently forming a group of independent specialists and journalists, who would objectively explore this mysterious facility and publish reports and accounts from the town, situated just about 100 kilometers away from Kiev. Meanwhile, as Oleksandr Lalak believes, this facility, still consuming huge amounts of Ukrainian electricity, does not work for Ukraine, despite being located on Ukrainian territory. It is logical that American missiles with nuclear warheads may be aimed at "Chernobyl-Two," because it works against the United States. One can easily figure out that, in the event of an unlikely but not impossible conflict with Russia, the United States would deal a nuclear missile strike mainly against the system of the Russian antimissile defense, in particular, against "Chernobyl-Two," a few kilometers away from the operating Chernobyl AES reactors on the territory of neutral Ukraine.

In conclusion, I will quote from the article by Professor Fuller Royal [names as transliterated], who works at a preventive medicine clinic in the U.S. State of Nevada, under the title "Nontraditional Medicine and Quantum Mechanics" that was published in the AMERICAN JOURNAL OF ACUPUNCTURE No. 1 of 1990. Dr. Fuller Royal writes as follows: "In 1976, in Eugene, State of Oregon, I had a chance to observe the effect of extremely low frequencies -- a signal transmitted from Kiev in Ukraine. The signal with the basic frequency of 4.75 megahertz that arrived through air caused emotional disturbances, headache, and a number of other symptoms in the town's residents. The government conducted an investigation into the phenomenon, but the truth only became known several years later. The signal had three objectives: First, it revealed beyond-horizon missile targets; second, it was a means of communication with submerged submarines; and third, the signal had a biological effect through resonance with the DNA molecules of the body cells." That signal was transmitted from the "Chernobyl-Two" facility, which had been commissioned in 1975. Its functioning was ensured by two nuclear generators, and when the Chernobyl AES was put into operation in 1977, perhaps its only purpose was to provide electricity for "Chernobyl-Two." Therefore, the talk about the development of psychotronic weapons in the supersecret town "Chernobyl-Two" is not so groundless -- its signals did affect the state of mind and health of U.S. residents -- on the other side of the globe. What about those, who live closer, in particular, you and me?
