CHORNOBYL–26 YEARS LATER…

Posted: April 26, 2012 in Uncategorized
PLEASE REMEMBER THE COUNTLESS VICTIMS OF
THE CHORNOBYL NUCLEAR REACTOR ACCIDENT,
APRIL 26, 1986.

The Chornobyl Nuclear Power Plant, is STILL the site of the world’s worst nuclear accident when the core of reactor number four exploded on April 26, 1986 at 1:23 a.m. causing fires, a nuclear meltdown, and sending out a radioactive cloud that blanketed Ukraine, Belarus, Scandinavia and Western Europe. The official Soviet death toll was 31 people; however it is assumed that the more truthful toll is around 250,000 and rising.

 

Chornobyl is among the most radioactive area on the planet—the fallout damage being roughly the equivalent of 400 Hiroshima nuclear bombs (The Guardian, April 26, 2006).

In commemoration of this somber occasion, please watch and share these two short videos:

We at Wheat Street Productions, Inc. are deeply committed to the elderly people currently living in the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone, the 30 kilometer area surrounding Chornobyl by featuring their lives in our documentary LIFE IN THE DEAD ZONE.  The world must never forget Chornobyl and the survivors who have much to remind us of the devastation they experience from living in the dead zone.
