The strategy seems to be working, and the memes keep on coming. Here are some of the fresher Chernobyl memes that the internet has to offer.

EDIT: An HBO Mini-series about the Chernobyl Disaster was released in 2019 and as a result there were many Chernobyl memes that came out around that time as a result of people learning more about the worst nuclear disaster in history. Even Russian president Vladimir Putin's media had a tough time handling the exposure that the Chernobyl miniseries caused about an event that's been covered-up and hushed-up from the moment it happened. The continued Russian reluctance to recognizing the severity of the disaster, and constant Russian attempts to suppress information about the subsequent mishandling has caused a sort of Streisand Effect and added to the mystique and allure of the otherwise taboo subject. Russian authorities were so worried with the...wait for it...fallout (pun intended) that they made the disaster worse than had they just admitted their mistakes right away.
