Notice the white flashes at the bottom of the pictures, remnants of the radiation itself present in such alien, hostile environment, which was so strong it reflected itself onto the film inside the cameras, as stated by the journalist behind these pictures, Igor Kostin. The world’s most dangerous job, in the world’s most radioactive place, during the world’s worst nuclear disaster, these men, perhaps unknowingly in many cases, rose to the challenge and ensured the world would never known the horrors they suffered during that fateful year of 1986 in the Ukraine.

Yes No Yes No Yes No donamoeba: Hetalia Character Chart from Himaruya’s blog. I found this translated version, it’s a shame the character descriptions are still in Japanese, so I’ve taken the liberty to translate them here. (if anyone knows the source please let me know and I’ll add a link)It’s an older entry so many characters are not introduced yet (no Australia! ;_;) EDIT: Check out the edited version HERE! (bigger image size) Grandpa Rome: A spirited old man.  He’s very strong!Italy: The protagonist.  It’s a bit of a coincidence that he got his ahoge. (Italy: Ve~ Germany~)Romano: Italy’s older brother. It’s hard to tell whether he’s confident or timid.Norway: He’s mysterious and can see fairies!Korea: If his ahoge has a face, then it’s Korea! Try tell him apart by the face.Austria: If he keeps saying “obaka obaka” (fools!), then he’s Austria! Remember there’s no “al” in Austria!Turkey: If he says “beranme~” (bloody fools!) and likes sweet food, that’s him!Greece: If there’s a cat nearby, that’s him!  He thinks a lot.Iceland: In his own special category. If his hair curls inwards strangely that’s him.Canada: If he looks gentle and is with a bear, it’s Canada!America: If he has a small cowlick where his hair parts, it’s America!Sweden: If he speaks Tohoku dialect, then it’s definitely Su-san.Estonia: He’s supposed to be the best looking guy of the whole manga… England: He’s blunt, and he uses magic and sees fairies. Overall a fantastical guy.Sealand: He believes he’s a recognized nation without doubt. A mischievous boy.Germania: An old pal of Grandpa Rome. Doesn’t speak much and is very intimidating.Germany: If Italy has him wrapped around his finger, and he’s diligent and buff, then it must be him.Prussia: If there’s a bird nearby, and he goes “kesesese”, it’s him!France: He’s a big brother overflowing with love! Usually good looking.Ukraine: If her boobs make SFXs and she goes “Russia-chan, Russia-chan”, then it’s Older Sister Ukraine.Seychelles:  She wears two pigtails with big red ribbons.Belarus: If she’s scary, that’s her.Egypt: Still many unexplained mysteriesHoly Roman Empire: You can tell it’s him by his sideburns!China: The only girl in the Allies…or not.Poland: If he always says “Arienshi-” (no way~) then it must be him. Actually his stomach is pretty weak too.Lithuania: If he’s played around by Russia or Poland then it’s him.Lichtenstein: If Switzerland is nearby then it’s definitely her.Belgium: if she has almond-shaped eyes and speaks Shiga dialect, then it’s her.Taiwan: If she wears a lot of flowers and her eye color is black, then it’s her.Hungary: If she’s holding a frying pan, it’s definitely her.Switzerland: If he holds a gun and lectures people, it’s most likely him.Denmark: He doesn’t wear any accessories (or “plain-looking”, but I fully disagree :P)!  If he speaks with an Ibaraki dialect, it’s him.Japan: Even if he doesn’t look it, he’s an old man!Finland: Even though he has a cute face, he’s very strong! Moi!Hong Kong: A pretty robust and strong-willed guy.Russia: If he’s holding a water pipe, that’s him.  Only the end of his hair curls slightly.Spain: The boss everyone loves who goes “fusososo”. (I should add that the question is more accurately “Does this character always look happy WITH NO REAL REASON?” XDD)Latvia: If some weird kid is always bothering him and sometimes he just ends up picking a fight with Russia, that’s him.
