In the unforeseen circumstances of Gorbachev and the Communist Party, reforms and reforms have had a greater impact on the collapse of the Soviet Union than they did to prevent the collapse of the Soviet Union. Due to the transformation of the reform economy into Western capitalism, coupled with the apparent relaxation of the government’s political restrictions, the government that the Soviet people once worried about suddenly appeared vulnerable to them. They seized new powers to organize and oppose the government and began to demand the complete end of Soviet rule. On April 26, 1986, after a nuclear reactor explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Pryp’yat, Ukraine, the Soviet people learned about the reality of glasnost. The number of explosions and fires spread more than 400 times. Radioactive dust as the atomic bomb of Hiroshima fell in most parts of the western Soviet Union and other European countries. Communist Party officials did not immediately publicly inform the people of the bombings. Instead, according to glasnost’s promise, Communist officials suppressed all the information about the disaster and its harm to the public. Despite the risk of radiation exposure, the May Day parade in the affected areas was still on schedule, as paid secret government officials known as “political personnel” quietly removed the Geiger counter from the school science classroom.
