25th Anniversary of Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster – Part 2

26 04 2011

Belarus, Ukraine and Russia mark the 25th anniversary of the nuclear reactor explosion in Chernobyl on April 26.

This is the world’s worst nuclear accident and classified as a level 7.

It happened on April 26, 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian SSR (now Ukraine).

Large quantities of radioactive contamination was released into the atmosphere that spread over much of the Western Russia and Europe.

Now we are facing another level 7 nuclear disaster – the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disaster.

I think that nuclear power is efficient but very, very, very dangerous.

These photos show before and after view of Pripyat, a beautiful city that had to be abandoned after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
