Impacts of the Cold War on Ukraine By: Eric Jaworski
One impact of the Cold War on us is the Chernobyl disaster. The USSR designed and built the flawed reactor. We now have over 1000 square miles of uninhabitable land for about the next 20,000 years.
A good thing for us that came out the Cold War is that we got are independence. We gained over 5,000 nukes from the USSR and we sent them all back in 1996. Also we got some of the best military weapons the USSR had.
Because of the type of government the USSR had we are having a modern rebellion. We have a lot of coruption caused by the fall of the USSR.
The USSR over used the environment of are country. There are many abandoned Soviet industrial sites. the animals have even mutated.
Along the lines of USSR military things we got is the Duga radar. They used it for there over the horizon missile defense network.
