April 26 - International Day of Remembrance of the Chernobyl Disaster

The reactor of the fourth power unit of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, located near the city of Pripyat, Kiev region, was destroyed on April 26, 1986. The destruction occurred as a result of an explosion, as a result of which a huge amount of radioactive emissions appeared in the atmosphere. In terms of the number of victims, economic and environmental damage, this disaster became the largest in the entire history the existence of nuclear power.

This sudden misfortune has turned the lives of thousands and millions of people. The peaceful atom suddenly stopped serving people and became a terrible threat to them, bringing disease and death.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of this sad date. Of course, this is not a reason for some kind of celebration, but you need to remember this event so that nothing like this will happen again. Moreover, Chernobyl today remains a source of potential danger.

On this day, we pay tribute to all the surviving liquidators of the Chernobyl accident and other man-made disasters. And Eternal memory to those of them who left us forever.

By April 26, it is customary in the post-Soviet republics to remember the Chernobyl disaster and those who, at the cost of their health, liquidated it. Now they talk about the tragedy we have experienced, not letting us forget about it.


Former pilot of the Mi-26 helicopter Pavel Stadnikov recalled his participation in the liquidation of the accident in interview Belarusian news agency BELTA. In 1986, he poured molasses on a nuclear reactor and the vicinity of the station from the air to stop the spread of radiation.

It was not scary over the reactor, it was scary to look down on the dead city of Pripyat. Were we afraid? Probably not. We are military pilots, there is the concept of an order. Smoke was coming out of the reactor, and we have planned flights, we are performing the task, we are saving a great country and, as it turned out, the whole world!

- recalls the pilot-liquidator.

According to the resolution of the UN General Assembly, since 2017, this date has acquired a global status and is now considered the International Day of Remembrance of the Chernobyl Disaster.

And today the editorial board of Voenny Obozreniye pays tribute to all veterans and liquidators of the consequences of man-made disasters. These people, at the cost of their health, and often their lives, eliminated threats, saving millions of often unsuspecting people.

    Who knows, maybe Fukushima has long surpassed Chernobyl in terms of pollution,
    but the world media are silent, they remember only Chernobyl under the sauce of "Russian technologies".
    Even films are shot in the right way.

        Good morning .
        Of course it is sad that this disaster happened.
        And the heroes-liquidators must not be forgotten.
        And the engineers probably did everything to prevent the explosion.
        Disasters took place in England and the United States.
        I am surprised by the attitude of the party leadership.
        They tried to hide everything, a short note appeared in the press only a couple of days later, and then under pressure from international opinion and politicians.
        After all, the "marked" was already in power, because it was he who advocated glasnost.
        Leading and directing, from the population, she always hid incidents. An example can be said about the execution in Novocherkassk, under Khrushchev.
        I helped one old man in '76 to fix the roof, it was leaking.
        Found a filing of the newspaper Pravda for 30 years. It was there that they informed the population of the "truth", trials, courts, convictions, with the demand to shoot them.
        The entire first and second pages are only about this, and only the third wrote about other topics.
        This is the kind of information they gave us, but it was long ago and not true.
        Sorry, I wrote it in a messy way, mixed everything up.

      maybe Fukushima has long surpassed Chernobyl in terms of pollution,
      .... put aside doubts, maybe Fukushima has long surpassed Chernobyl in terms of pollution, Fukushima does not even have liquidation status. and for 10 years now it has been pouring radioactive into the ocean, so that a huge water area is banned from the production of seafood along the way, it became so acute for the Japs that they turned their desire to the Kuril Islands
      and a huge bow to our liquidators ... and eternal memory to my 28 dead colleagues

      "Who knows, maybe Fukushima has long surpassed Chernobyl in terms of pollution?"
      Not. Can not.
      There is no need to compare the accident on the island with the accident on the continent. As a result of the first, the contamination of the island territory adjacent to the nuclear power plant and coastal waters could occur. As a result of the second, huge territories of the Union republics of the USSR were infected. And the rest got a little. Suffice it to recall that the Swedes were the first to sound the alarm while ours kept silent.
      Next.
      One should not confuse a man-made disaster that occurred due to the unprofessionalism of the plant personnel and structural defects of its elements (in particular, core rods), with a disaster that occurred as a result of a natural disaster. We did not have an earthquake or a tsunami. Themselves, with their own hands, they brought the reactor to a critical point.
      I personally observed the consequences of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant when I commanded a company at the station at the end of 1986. I did not have a chance to visit Japan, I did not see the consequences visually. But in modern conditions, it is impossible to hide something. And if the consequences of Fukushima were comparable to those of Chernobyl, the world would know about it.

        In this regard, the difference between the Chernobyl accident and the Fukushima accident is significant.
        After the accident at Fukushima, the Japanese first of all tried to save face and, like in the Soviet Union, kept the entire world atomic community in the dark. The difference began later.
        After the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, the entire control system was quickly rebuilt. The specialists immediately received all the powers and made 10-15 key decisions a day. If lead was needed, the lead came immediately from all over the country.
        When making a decision, the Japanese bureaucratic machine consisted of as many as 25 levels of hierarchy, while the specialist did not receive any feedback on his request. All the specialists could do was wait for an answer. The first step was the Prime Minister of Japan, who, according to this bureaucratic logic, was the most important specialist in the elimination of severe accidents.
        The Japanese had a margin of time after the tsunami - they had to turn on backup generators within a few hours. Then the shutdown of the power unit would not be related to significant incidents at the NPP and in itself would not have had any catastrophic consequences.
        There was no electricity at Fukushima-1, but it was 6 km from the station. In Russia, they would immediately throw the cable and connect the generators. The Japanese began to coordinate the laying of the cable, and when it was laid, the connectors did not fit. And instead of reworking the connectors in a handicraft way on the spot, the Japanese ordered them at the factory. And the ordinary shutdown of the reactor was brought to a catastrophe of the maximum, seventh level of the International scale of nuclear events.

          Something else is also indicative. The experiment at the Chernobyl NPP was aimed at determining the possibility of powering the reactor equipment BEFORE the start of the emergency generators. At Fukushima, as we know, the accident occurred precisely because of the untimely connection of the generators.

        Yes, there are questions for the Japanese too. Given the seismicity of the region, it may have been necessary to foresee everything and lay down more stringent requirements for structures and units.
        But in fairness, it is worth noting that the AZ at Fukushima did work, as a result of which it was possible to avoid the monstrous consequences that were observed at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
        In our country, as Medvedev aptly noted in the "Chernobyl Notebook", what was supposed to protect was killed. The process became irreversible precisely after the personnel pressed the "AZ-5" button.

        Then not the "entire" Pacific Ocean, but the Atlantic too? Or is there a clear land border between them?
        I don’t know how “the whole” Pacific Ocean feels there.
        I also don’t know why it’s necessary to move the arrows to Fukushima in the topic of the sad anniversary of the Chernobyl accident. It's shallow and ugly.
        But I know for sure the scale and consequences of our man-made disaster. Which affected the vast territories of the RSFSR, Belarus, Ukraine. Which led to radioactive contamination of the terrain of 17 European states - Austria, Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Sweden, Finland, Norway, etc. Which in one fell swoop withdrew 5 million hectares of land in the USSR from agricultural use.
        I'm not talking about victims and victims. Here you just need to bare your head and keep silent.

          Because the personnel at the Chernobyl NPP violated the points of the instructions, but at Fukushima, on the contrary, strictly followed them. They would be swapped, there would be no tragedy.

    And I was then in Ukraine. A kid. I remember everything well. And the parade on May XNUMX, and the soothing speeches of officials. It's good that my father served in the army in the Strategic Missile Forces and quickly got his bearings. He made me drink milk with iodine, and after a couple of weeks I was promptly sent to the Yaroslavl region, to my grandfather and grandmother.
    Tickets barely got through friends, and rode in an almost empty carriage!

      And I was a kid in Belarus. I learned about the accident from my father almost immediately. There is a strict prohibition on milk, on the street only in a hat and a minimum time. Yes, wherever there, I remember, it was very warm and it is not realistic to drive the boys home. Everyone says that the information was hidden, parades were held, but surprisingly, everyone knew what was happening. We even have our own (military-grade) dosimeter, I don’t know where it came from. Imported products from other regions immediately appeared in stores. I remember condensed milk in cans with inscriptions in Spanish (before that it was sold only on tap, from cans), butter in five-liter cans, and the school started giving (free) dried bananas from Vietnam. All schoolchildren were taken to the Kalinin region for three summer months at once. And then, every year, they traveled all over the USSR for recreational purposes. If someone claims that nothing was done for people, then this is not entirely true (or not at all true).

Both tragedies are not without rumors of sabotage, especially through the gas pipeline. Knowing how the Anglo-Saxons established themselves in the world, you do not feel much doubt about their involvement. Someday everything will be counted for them, about their fools and traitors is a separate topic.

      Terrible disaster ..

      - I was awakened - and I just lay down - a flash of terrible brightness. A glow blazed on the horizon. After a couple of tens of seconds, a blast wave reached Asha, breaking a lot of glass. I realized something terrible had happened. A few minutes later I was already in the city police department, together with the guys I rushed to the "duty room", rushed towards the glow. What they saw, it is impossible to imagine even with a sick imagination! Trees were burning like giant candles, cherry-red carriages smoking along the embankment. There was a completely impossible single cry of pain and horror from hundreds of dying and burned people. The forest was on fire, sleepers were on fire, people were on fire. We rushed to catch the rushing "living torches", shoot them down, carry them closer to the road, away from the fire. Apocalypse ... And how many children there were! Doctors began to drive up after us. We put the living on one side, and the dead on the other. I remember carrying a little girl, she asked me all about her mother. I handed it over to a doctor I knew - let's bandage it! He replies: "Valerka, that's it ..." - "How's it all, just talked ?!" - "It's in shock."

        What a nightmare!
        I would have gone crazy after this to her God ...
        Although, it seems not a very impressionable person.

    That year, schoolchildren from the Urals were sent on a tour along the river, on the route Gomel-Kiev. We walked very close to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. We didn't know anything ...

    35 years have passed, time flies.
    PS: Chernobyl is remembered because it was the first major accident with the destruction of the core.

    the first arrived fire brigades under the command of lieutenants: Viktor Nikolaevich Kibenko Vladimir Pavlovich Pravik The guard included four more heroes, namely: Ignatenko Vasily Ivanovich Tishura Vladimir Ivanovich Titenok Nikolai Ivanovich Vashchuk Nikolai Vasilyevich We must thank these people for our today's peace of mind, who knows what would have happened if not for theirs, a truly heroic feat. The picture at the time of the arrival of the first units and the conditions in which the firemen were to work were terrible: The multi-ton structure of the 4th reactor looked like a tin can - there was no roof, part of the wall was destroyed ... The lights went out on the territory, the phone went off. The premises are filled with either steam, fog or dust. Short-circuit sparks flare up. Hot radioactive water flows everywhere. Later, on alarm, fire brigades from the city of Chernobyl, Kiev and other regions were raised, the command of which was headed by Major Telyatnikov. They did their duty without special means of extinguishing fires at nuclear power plants, without means of protection against radiation - they did not allow the fire to spread to the third unit. All of them received terrible doses of radiation and died a painful death. By 5 o'clock in the morning, the fire was localized. Vashchuk, Kibenok, Titenko, Pravik, Tishura, Ignatenko. Their bodies were very radioactive, so they were buried in a Moscow cemetery in a special way (in sealed coffins, under concrete tiles). Victor Kibenk and Vladimir Pravik were awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union posthumously. First victims Directly during the first days of liquidation of the Chernobyl accident, more than 300 people from the nuclear power plant personnel and firefighters were exposed to acute radiation exposure. Of these, 237 were initially diagnosed with acute radiation sickness. Because of

    Remembered!
    Saturday! We are graduates! We have a spare point of the civil defense of Ukraine under the school!
    Second lesson. At the checkpoint, the ventilation system falls and after the second lesson our students are dismissed to their homes.
    The school did not know such an ora and Armageddon before and after.
    Well, he loved to hide behind the scoop children over a military facility!
    Such.
    The friend comes running and gives out the phrase! Chernobyl banged. And I answered. Figs there! There are 195 tons of uranium. If she had banged, then we would not have been alive!
    And I know that the asphalt burns. And we went to watch.
    Afterwards, he lay in the hospital in front of the army.
    When I was there they brought guys from the zone.
    Nelelya was washed.
    Although, on my head, less than 0.75 did not work out.
    And this is in a kind of clean area.

      Those. every student of the tenth grade of secondary school - knew how many tons of Uranium are loaded into the nuclear power plant reactor?
      What a twist...
      At our NW in those days, working in one workshop, you do not have the right to a neighboring "order" to go through without having the appropriate stamp in the pass ...
      And here such information ... In school circles ...
      Miracles...

        If you are from those times, which I strongly doubt! Then you would know that the party cared about the education of the people! And there was such a magazine Science and Life! And in it, in the years 83-85, the reactors of the RBMK system were completely described!
        But you are not one of those times or not a reader even once!

          I'm not going to start polemical battles here over this. And to someone / something to prove. I just gave my remarks on the observance of secrecy at your strategic facility.
          Besides, I am not in the subject.
          But the figure of 195 tons of Uranium ... I was a little strained. Presumably, the stokers threw him into the furnace with shovels.
          Three blocks - six hundred (roughly) tons!
          This is given from the same magazine that the icebreaker had enough matchbox for a year?
          Presumably Uranus was of increased density ...

    Not the largest anymore.
    Fukushima on the INES scale Exactly the same.
    And, if Chernobyl has already "puffed up" by and large, then the Japanese are just beginning, and who knows how it will end there.
    And the Asians will be stingier than even the USSR in access to information.

    Isn't it time to accuse the CIA and Ukrainian Nationalists of involvement in the nuclear power plant explosion? "We have the evidence, but we will not show it to you - Gorbachev classified it!" No.

    The danger is likely in something else. In the absence of Ukraine's sovereignty, these temporary cheeks in power may agree to hide the radioactive waste of other countries for money.

    Well, Rosatom legally imports waste from other countries.

    Rosatom has "ate a dog" on utilization and processing, just the case when indeed * there are no analogues *, even the Americans have long since sagged hard in nuclear affairs.
    What can we say about the competence of Skakuas from 404 countries.
