Boris Shcherbina: Tell me how to put it out.

Valery Legasov You are dealing with something that has never occurred on this planet before.

Boris Shcherbina Of course, you presume I’m too stupid to understand. So I’ll restate: Tell me how a nuclear reactor works, or I’ll have one of these soldiers throw you out of the helicopter.

Boris Shcherbina A nuclear plant in Sweden has detected radiation and identified it as a byproduct of our fuel. The Americans took satellite photos. The reactor building, the smoke, the fire. The whole world knows. The wind has been blowing toward Germany. They’re not letting children play outside… in Frankfurt.

Fomin It’s overkill. Pikarov’s showing off to make us look bad.

Bryukhanov It doesn’t matter how it looks. Shcherbina’s a pure bureaucrat, as stupid as he is pigheaded. We’ll tell him the truth in the simplest terms possible. We’ll be fine.
