It's been 25 years since Valery Legasov – one of the Soviet Union’s highly acclaimed scientists – commited suicide. He headed the scientific group involved in the clear-up of the Chernobyl blast in 1986 and threw himself into finding what caused the disaster. However he met a lot of difficulties in his path, which – as some say – broke him . RT’s Alexey Yaroshevsky makes a report about Valery Legasov’s life.
