Russia hates HBO series ‘Chernobyl’, decides to make its own show

Chernobyl

HBO miniseries “Chernobyl” has achieved almost universal acclaim, except from Russia.

Critics and audiences alike have placed the show at the top of IMDb’s list of highest-rated series, and the dramatic retelling of the 1986 nuclear reactor explosion has even inserted itself into mainstream political dialogue.

However, the series has not been warmly received by the Kremlin, which has launched a mini-crusade in response, according to the Moscow Times. Russia’s most popular newspaper, Komsomolskaya Pravda, raised suspicions that competitors of Russia’s state-run nuclear center were using the series to tarnish the country’s legacy as a nuclear power.
