Ukraine, Russia and Belarus remind UN of Chernobyl tragedy

Ukraine, Russia and Belarus remind UN of Chernobyl tragedy. The three countries appeal to UN with an announcement at the 21st anniversary of the explosion of Atomic Power Station, and state that polluted territories need International assistance for clearing and life recovery.

"Chernobyl is not only an old pain for the damaged countries. Current problems are also connected with this tragedy" - the announcement quotes.

In 1986, April 25, one of the reactors exploded at the Atomic Station, 100 km away from Kiev, which was followed by horrifying results.

The explosion caused the death of ten thousands of people, and more than three million people got body radiation.

The tragedy results have not been liquidated yet. 21st anniversary of the Chernobyl tragedy has been commemorated by special activities held in the cities of Ukraine, Russia and Belarus.
