In the spring of 1986, the Earth”s history changed forever. If earlier the scientists all over the world dreamed of a “peaceful atom”, now they are talking about the fact that mankind should abandon nuclear power plants. On April 26, employees of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant obeyed the orders of their superiors and conducted a fatal experiment – they tried to stop the reactor. Viktor Bryukhanov, who at that time was the director of the station, assures that only “scheduled repair works” were carried out. But the International Atomic Operations Agency believes that the cause of the disaster was “unlikely combination of violations of the order and operation regime.”
The result of this criminal arrogance was a global catastrophe. Today, many people are interested in the question – when will it be possible to return to Pripyat and Chernobyl? As a result of the explosion at the fourth block, a radioactive cloud covered the north of Ukraine, Belarus and even Europe. Fortunately, most of the radioactive elements remained in the thirty-kilometer zone around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. All people who lived in this area were resettled forever.
ВSince then, only the operating personnel of tourist hotels, border guards of the checkpoint and staff of the station have stayed in the city of Chernobyl. People work on rotation-based. Also, self-settlers permanently live in local villages – several hundred Chernobyl victims who decided to settle in their once abandoned houses. If you want to see the Exclusion Zone, then book an excursion to Chernobyl. Today, this is the only safe way to touch the history of the disaster. Tour guides take tourists along “clean” trails and use dosimeters.
The radioactive substances that contaminated the Zone have different half-lives. And if cesium and strontium decay after 30 years, the transuranic elements will be “active” for hundreds of thousands years. When will people populate the Zone? The experts put forward three versions.
The “radioactive cloud” fell on the ground unevenly, so today only certain parts of the Zone are dangerous. Trips-to-Chernobyl guides will take you to places where the radiation level is not higher than in Kiev. You can verify this by measuring the radiation with a personal dosimeter (guides will give out protective equipment). In addition, all sightseers receive medical insurance. Tours to Chernobyl are officially allowed and controlled at the state level, therefore, a dosimetric check is carried out at the exit from the Zone.
On April 26, 1986, an ecological catastrophe took place in Ukraine, which changed the history of human civilization.
