This short paper discusses the little-known 1957 radiological incident in Kyshtym (USSR), which caused significant release of high-level radioactive waste into the environment, and necessitated protective measures for the public. Concealment of the event by the government from the general public between 1957 and 1989 resulted in a public outcry and an institution of a special federal program of remediation.
