Kulov, chairman of Gosatomenergonadzor, used to be given a nonetheless extra critical penalty; he used to be discharged and expelled from the get together. an identical penalty got here down on Bryukhanov. yet that occurred 15 years later. And in my opinion the factors of it incorporated group of workers coverage on the nuclear strength plant.

He used to be unique in his paintings, expeditious, exacting, and impulsive. formidable and unforgiving.
