Tyshenko 8:12 PM- Vasili what the hell is going on over there?
8:24 – Tyshenko – Why aren’t you answering?
8:58 – Torbayevsky – Vacheslav Alexaivich, forgive me for not answering. We have an emergency. The Third Unit shut down. I am already there. Ignatchencho is with me. Krasnogorov is coming.
Tyshenko – fuck! Why the hell didn’t you tell me immediately? Do you understand the danger this will mean for us? We will be thrown in prison, you as well. Leaving now, will be there in hour.
Torbayevsky – Need to contact Chech specialists from Skoda. Its their equipment.
Tyshenko and Krasnogorov, head engineer at plant ZGD
20:34 Tyshenko – Fiador, how are things?
Krasnagorov – Things are not good. The casket on the upper unit cannot take the pressure. Seems we screwed around with this improper material long enough.
Tyshenko – Don’t whine. You need to understand that no one asked me about any of it.
Krasnagorov – Even back then I was saying that this is not going to end well. We needed to do testing first. Its not just the caskets that are the problem. Its with the fuel as well.
Tyshenko – I said don’t whine! These are the orders the ministry gave. They warmed their hands on it already (they made their money) and let this fuck them now (let them deal with the fallout).
Krasnagorov – Understood.
7:48 Tyshenko and Stefansky (Assistant Plant manager)
Stefansky – Vacheslav Alexaivich as soon as you left, journalists flooded us. They are hanging out at the security checkpoint. What do I say to them?
Tyshenko 8:01 am – Listen, I am fucking barely able to stay on my feet (tired). Can’t you come up with something? Say that it is an electrical short circuit or some other shit like that, but about the reactor not a word! Blab, and I will turn you inside out (skin you)! Thats it, out, I’m getting a few hours sleep and will be back.
8:53 Tyshenko and Torbayevsky
Torbayevsky – Vacheslav Alexaivich, we have a leak.
Tyshenko – fuck! Where are you?
Torbayevsky – I’m at the station with the personnel, trying to fix it, but its a dead number (no use).
9:31 am Tyshenko – Ok, I called to the top. We need to be quiet now or we’ll be sent to Donbass as volunteers. Do You understand?
Torbayevsky – Understood.
12:17 Tyshenko – Vasili, I’ve been called to Kiev immediately. Figure this out without me.
Torbayevsky – What do we do with the personnel? We need to evacuate people, radiation is off the charts! And locals need to be warned. We already started dumping into the water supply from the cooling system. Very soon we will have a second Chernobyl.
Tyshenko – Don’t panic! We were told to be quiet. We’ll be quiet!
Torbayevsky – Vacheslav Alexaivich! Do you understand we can no longer keep silent? This is a catastrophe! Here in a 100 kilometer radius, nothing will be left alive! fucking sky is already glowing! (inside joke about radiation)
Tyshenko – Listen! I am flying to Kiev. Wait for a call. For now don’t answer any questions and don’t talk to anyone.
Leaked official report
Zero Hedge – Is Ukraine Hiding A Huge Radiation Leak At The Largest Nuclear Power Plant In Europe?
Today, we get information of a leaked report sourced from three different place unconfirmed for now (but RT is trying to verify) that Ukrainian nuclear scientists misled the public and a radioactive leak has been detected citing the country€™s emergency services claiming that levels of radiation are 16.3 times the legally permitted norm.
Romanian report of a Radioactive cloud
Romania borders the Ukraine. This article if translated correctly, presents the possibility of radiation from a Ukrainian nuclear accident being detected around the northern border area of Romania. The northern border area of Romania is where the private Romanian monitoring stations detected large spikes in radiation in late November and December 2014.
Extract: (I used the Google translate service.)
06/12/2014 EVENT INFORMATION USEFUL No comments radioactive
From the first data announced by the National Meteorological administration, pollutant cloud will remain in the next 24 hours and northern border of Romania. In the first analysis, before all environmental factors values were within the natural limits. This might change, however, in the following days.
High Romanian background radiation detections
These large spikes in background radiation were recorded in late November, and December 2014, on two different private Romanian monitoring stations, located in northern Romania. They are listed here in chronological order. The first Romanian detection occurred a couple of days before news reports of operational problems at the Zaporizhzhya nuclear plant surfaced.
Alert level for Timisoara Romania 26th November 2014 peak 4.48 uSv/hr.
No stations near by to confirm if it is a genuine detection, still could be equipment malfunction or a very localized event. If it is genuine, this is a very large detection.
Here is a screen shot of the chart detection.
Global Radiation Monitoring Network
Alert level Carei Northern Romania 27th November 2014.
The alert detection in Timisoara Romania on the 26th and now Carei on the 27th, would appear to be confirmation of a major radioactive release somewhere in Europe in the last couple days. Carei is north of Timisoara in Romania.
More investigation would be needed to try and pinpoint the source, and it may not be from Romania.
Another Alert level for Timisoara Romania 1st December 2014, peak 2.41 uSv/hr.
These detections suggest there have been recent major releases, from a nuclear facility in Europe.
Another significant detection at Timisoara Romania on the 7th December 2014, peak 0.38 uSv/hr.
It is not nearly as large as the other recent detections of 4.8 uSv/hr, 1.81 uSv/hr, 1.17uSv/hr and 2.41 uSv/hr. These were very large free air Gamma detections from two different private Romanian monitoring stations.
Yes, there is the possibility that these high detections have nothing to do with the Ukraine Zaporozhye NPP. These detections could also be equipment malfunctions, or be from local sources. I have considered these possibilities. All monitoring systems are subject to malfunctions at times. Two or more monitoring stations in proximity to each other, indicating a significant increase in background levels, are more statistically likely to be an indication of a genuine event.
All this circumstantial evidence points to a serious nuclear accident having occurred at the Zaporizhzhya nuclear plant in the Ukraine in late November 2014. Nuclear and government officials are renowned for denying any nuclear accident has occurred for as long as they can. They then play down the seriousness of the accident, once they have to admit there has been a nuclear accident. Three Mile Island, Fukushima and Chernobyl Nuclear disasters, are just a few of numerous examples. In my opinion, at this point, it would be wise to keep a close eye on the situation. Civil war and Nuclear power plants are not a good mix!

Southern Hemisphere December 2014 Background Radiation Report.
This short animation of Northern, and Southern Hemisphere air circulation, shows why we can get detections so far south.
December 2014 Summary
Thanks to the Cairns monitoring station operator for creating this chart, which compares detections from Caloundra to Cairns in North Queensland Australia, for December 2014. Background levels for Cairns (red) in comparison to Caloundra (orange). The Caloundra monitoring station is very near the Pacific Ocean. At Caloundra, there is more dynamic changes in detections, as the wind direction moves from Southern Ocean to Northern tropics.
All the data indicates background levels are not increasing and have stabilized, at least at this location.
There as been a decrease in December background since 2012.
December 2014 monthly average background radiation level was 32% above the pre-Fukushima average.
December average for 2013 was 36% above the pre-Fukushima average.
December average for 2012 was 43% above the pre-Fukushima average.
Month Averages Chart for 2014
The background level 2014 year average, was 20% above the 4 year pre-Fukushima average.
The background level 2013 year average, was 22% above the 4 year pre-Fukushima average.
The background level 2012 year average, was 21% above the 4 year pre-Fukushima average.
(Note: The 4yr average referred to in the charts, is the 4yr pre-Fukushima average.)

December 2014 Rain Water Test Report
Lead Pb-210 and Beryllium Be-7, plus significant amounts of of Radon-222 and Radon-220 decay daughters were detected in the rain water and Rain swab tests. The trace amounts of Iodine-129 and Uranium-235 are now below the detectible levels of the equipment here. The rain fall for the month was 92.4 mm.

In this chart I have CPS on the Y axis to show activity, and have turned off Y log to show linear scaling. It is on a scale at less than one decay detection every 1000+ seconds, near the bottom of the chart. This is only a test chart of the polyester part of the rain water filter system design.
