The 1986 Chernobyl Disaster in Ukraine

About The 1986 Chernobyl Disaster

On Saturday, April 26, 1986, reactor number four exploded at the nuclear power plant at the Chernobyl city of the former Soviet Union. With one, many years of fear became reality. The accident had catastrophic consequences. Many people died due to radioactive contamination and there has been a sharp increase in the number of cancer victims - for example, a Swiss study shows an increase of 40 percent in all cancer types in Belarus from the 1990s to 2000. The fauna has changed significantly and in Today, 31 years after, they still struggle with the aftermath of the accident.

The city is deserted like a ghost town, where only the frame is left: cars, garments and teddy bears. But the history of Chernobyl is not just a report of death and destruction. It is also a story of how the Soviet authorities underestimated and anticipated the accident and its consequences for the world, as well as the story of how the Chernobyl accident became an important part of the 80's campaign against nuclear power. This site is all about that accident!
