Radio Sweden’s Russian Service’s 40th Birthday

When the Chernobyl nuclear plant exploded in 1986, Soviet authorities tried to keep its people unaware of the extent of the disaster. Thanks to Radio Sweden’s Russian Service, Soviet citizens soon learned what had actually happened.

Back then Radio Sweden was one of the very few Western news sources. On Monday, the Russian Service celebrates its fortieth birthday.
