Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant

Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant

Twenty five years ago today, on April 26th 1986, one of Chernobyl’s four reactors blew up in the world’s worst nuclear disaster.

At the time of the accident seven million people lived in the contaminated territories, including 2.2 million in Ukraine.

After the accident, a new city, Slavutych, was built outside the exclusion zone to house and support the employees of the plant, which was decommissioned in 2000.

A cemetery of some 1,350 radioactive Soviet military vehicles used while fighting against the April 26, 1986 nuclear accident at Chernobyl.

Around 150,000 people were evacuated from the contaminated area, and 300,000–600,000 took part in the cleanup. By 2000, about 4,000 Ukrainian children had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer caused by radiation released by this incident. Other Chernobyl disaster effects include other forms of cancer and genetic abnormalities, affecting newborns and children in particular.
