Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster

The accident happened on April 26th, 1986 some 100 km north of Kiev, the capital city of this Eastern European nation. Reactor #4 of the Chernobyl (Chornobyl) nuclear power station exploded as a result of a mistake that occurred during the performance of a routine, daily maintenance operation. Tons of radioactive material was propelled into the open skies. That was an equivalent of 90 Hiroshima bombs.

The heavily populated city of Kiev was spared - in a way - from disastrous nuclear contamination, as the winds were blowing mostly north and west over a few days immediately after the accident. The fallout scattered over the neighboring Belarus, Russia, and Poland, as well as in part over the Baltic region, and even Scandinavia. It affected one-fifth of the territory of Belarus. It also covered 5% of Ukrainian territory as well as select parts of Russia.

A zone with a 30-kilometer radius around the power [plat] was demarked shortly thereafter. More than 130,000 people were evacuated from the zone and adjacent areas which remained at a high risk of radiation exposure and contamination.  Reactor 4 was enclosed in a so-called sarcophagus, a huge construction of steel and concrete. It is supposed to keep the radiation inside.

About 600,000 people from all over the former Soviet Union joined a gigantic clean-up operation inside the Exclusion zone. They are known as "liquidators".

Although the status of the 180 tons of radioactive material entrapped inside the nuclear power plant is still unclear, there is a consensus among the scientists that the risks of the sarcophagus exploding are truly minimal. They better be right .....

*Rates are exclusive of the mandatory $10 accidental trip insurance sold by the zone authorities.
