Chernobyl, city (since 1941) in Ukraine, the Kiev area.
It is located on the river Pripyat, at its confluence of the Kiev water basin.
Exactly twenty five years ago, in April 1986 this terrible word has sounded on all planet, having announced to the world the biggest accident of the XX-th century – explosion on 4 power unit of the Chernobyl NPP, carried away lives of ten thousand people. This day we have realized that the atom can be not only peace…
On the 26-th of April 1986, at 01:23 reactor four suffered a catastrophic power increase, leading to explosions in its core.
An explosion and fire released large quantities of radioactive contamination into the atmosphere, which spread over much of Western USSR and Europe.
The attempted experimentThe accident occurred during an experiment scheduled to test a potential safety emergency core cooling feature, which took place during the normal shutdown procedure.
Rough infringements of service regulations of the atomic power station, made by its personnel, are the following:•Experiment carrying out "at any cost", despite change of a condition of the reactor;•The conclusion from work of serviceable technological protection which simply would stop the reactor still before it has got to a dangerous mode;• Hushing up of scale of failure in the first days management CNPP.
The bulk of the work was carried out in 1986-1987, were attended by approximately 240 000 people. The total number of liquidators (including following years) was about 600 000.
The radiation levels in the worst-hit areas of the reactor building have been estimated to be 5.6 roentgens per second, equivalent to more than 20,000 roentgens per hour. A lethal dose is around 500 roentgens over 5 hours, so in some areas, unprotected workers received fatal doses within minutes.
Announcement for the evacuation of Prypiat.
The evacuation began at 14:00 on 27 April. In order to expedite the evacuation, the residents were told to bring only what was necessary.
From 1986 to 2000, more than 350 000 people were evacuated and resettled from the most severely contaminated areas of Belarus , Russia and Ukraine.
Residual radioactivity in the environmentRivers, lakes and reservoirsThe Chernobyl nuclear power plant is located next to the Pripyat River, which feeds into the Dnipro River reservoir system, one of the largest surface water systems in Europe.
GroundwaterGroundwater was not badly affected by the Chernobyl accident since radionuclides with short half-lives decayed away long before they could affect groundwater supplies.
Flora and faunaAfter the disaster, four square kilometers of pine forest directly downwind of the reactor turned reddish-brown and died, earning the name of the "Red Forest".
Mutations in both humans and other animals increased following the disaster.
In the aftermath of the accident, 237 people suffered from acute radiation sickness, of whom 31 died within the first three months.
