Trivia

The episode title "Vichnaya Pamyat" is Ukrainian for "Memory Eternal". It is a hymn intoned during Ukrainian Orthodox Christian church Funeral or Memorial Litiyas/prayers for the deceased. In Ukrainian Orthodox parishes the Liturgy and prayers are usually in Ukrainian while in parishes belonging to the Moscow Patriarchate, the Liturgy and services are in Church Slavonic. In these services "Memory Eternal" is pronounced "Vechnaya Pamyat".

This hymn is heard at the end of the episode. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Nikolai Fomin: [twelve hours before the explosion] I hear they might promote Bryukhanov. This little problem we have with the safety test, if it's completed successfully, yes, I think promotion is very likely. Who knows, maybe Moscow. Naturally they'll put me in charge once he's gone.

Very Personal and well done
4 June 2019 | by Arnie93See all my reviews

I was really impressed by the script. Probably the best I have seen. "Why worry about something that will never happen?". You should put that in our money.

I loved the end and real text.
