A long journey from Chornobyl

Today is the Chornobyl Disaster Remembrance Day. We    express our consideration and respect to  those people who sacrificed their lives  in the struggle against this  ghastly technogenic disaster.

We will discover the outcomes of an unprofessional, irresponsible and negligent conduct of the public officials in the years following. We do not have the right to forget this chapter of our history and those people who have been eliminating the damage caused by accident.
