34 years under the sky of Chernobyl
34 years ago, the biggest accident in the history of nuclear energy happened.
01:23 an explosion occurred in 4 reactors, resulting in a fire. A huge cloud of radioactive substances was thrown into the atmosphere, resulting in a huge number of human victims.
What was the problem of Chernobyl?
That night did not portend trouble - at CHNPP them. Lenin was on ordinary duty. But there was a planned unusual experiment with a decrease in reactor power. The reactor could not stand this lowering. And as they said later: “The kettle exploded”!
Thousands of specialists were seconded to Chernobyl. Many of them did not really understand what happened there and where they were going. Later they will all be called in one word - the Liquidators.
These were people who laid down their lives to save the whole planet Earth. Many of them did not survive to this day - the 4th reactor took all their health. Iron inhuman will, knowledge and experience gained by courage, love of the native land were their allies in the fight against the elements. Shoulder-to-shoulder with academics and specialists, the liquidators paved the way for victory over an out-of-control atom. With great difficulty, the emergency reactor was closed. And as the main result of the feat - it was covered with a sarcophagus in 2016.
A total of 116 thousand people from 188 settlements were evacuated from the 30km of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in 1986. The evacuation began on April 27 from the city of Pripyat and lasted almost a month. There was a tragedy of universal proportions. People who have left their home will never return there again.
