Bohdan Taras Kondratiuk Character Analysis

Kondratiuk describes how Ukraine enacted the Redeker Plan. In order to separate the infected and destroy them, they bombed part of the population with nerve gas. Everyone who wasn’t infected died, and when the infected ones reanimated, it was easy for the soldiers to pick them out and kill them. In this excessively cruel way, Ukraine made it easier for the army to kill the zombies and stop the creation of more zombies, but at a massive human cost.
