Información del disco:
This EP is in honor of all people who risked and lost their lives in the liquidation process in the Chernobyl NPP accident.

This EP is going to be released on the 31st anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

The Chernobyl liquidators also known as "Biorobots", the Soviet official definition: "???????? ?????????? ??????????? ?????? ?? ????????????? ???"(uchastnik likvidatsyi posledstviy avarii na Tchernobylskoi AES, literally "participant in liquidation of the Chernobyl NPP accident consequences")

Some of the highest doses of radiation were sustained by the workers enlisted to clear debris from Chernobyl?s rooftops. After the explosion, the facility was covered in pieces of highly contaminated graphite, the substance that had been used instead of water to cool the reactor and slow the fission reaction in the Chernobyl plant design.

Initially, authorities tried to use robots to do the job of removing the dangerous debris, but after a few days the high levels of radiation damaged the electronic circuitry of the machines.

The job had to be done by human hands, and so a subset of the workers who became known as "biorobots," were deployed to the rooftops. They would run up to the rooftop for minutes or less, removing just a few shovels of waste before a new crew of liquidators would take their turn. Workers recall feeling pain in their eyes and a lead taste in their mouth due to the high radiation levels.

The EP cover photo is from the rooftop of reactor number three, it was taken by Igor Kostin, who worked at Novosti Press Agency at the time and became the best-known of the Chernobyl disaster photographers. He has said that the white streaks at the bottom of the photo were due to the high levels of radiation below. Indeed, some of his early photography after the accident was damaged beyond recovery.
