This is an interesting theory. The Duga radar antenna arrays were known to Western Military Intelligence and had been photographed and given the NATO reporting name "Steelyard". While I don't put anything past the old Soviets I'm not sure that engineering one disaster would save the responsible officers and ministers from the feared vertical stroke. There were actually two Steelyard sites one near Chernobyl and one in Eastern Siberia. Engineering the Chernobyl meltdown would cover the failure of the Ukrainian site but it would do nothing to disguise the failure of the site in Eastern Siberia.
