The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day

International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day Date in the current year: April 26, 2022  

Until recently, Memorial Day for the Victims of the Chernobyl Nuclear Accident was observed only in the countries directly affected by the accident (Ukraine, Belarus and Russia). This changed in 2016, when the United Nations General Assembly designated April 26 as International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day

The Chernobyl accident, also referred to as the Chernobyl disaster, was a catastrophic nuclear accident that occurred in Ukraine (then the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic). On April 26, 1986, Reactor No. 4 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant was completely destroyed by an explosion caused by a catastrophic power increase. The explosion resulted in radioactive contamination of large parts of the USSR, now the territories of Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. Over 8 million people in these countries were exposed to radiation.

Four years passed after the accident before the Soviet government reluctantly acknowledged the need for international assistance in mitigating the consequences of the disaster. In 1990, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution that called for international cooperation in overcoming the consequences of the Chernobyl accident.

Since 2002, the main focus of the Chernobyl strategy has been a long-term developmental approach instead of emergency humanitarian assistance. In 2009, the International Chernobyl Research and Information Network was launched to provide support to programs that aim to contribute to the sustainable development of affected territories.

International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day was inaugurated in 2016 to raise awareness of the consequences of the accident and to consolidate efforts to eliminate them. In Ukraine, it is one of the official remembrance days marked by memorial ceremonies and special lessons at schools. In addition, Ukraine observes Chernobyl Liquidators Day on December 14.

  1. Thw WHO, said only a few hundred died, from Chernobyl. Caldicott proved it is a million and more, and growing. There are More wildfires, there every year. More wildfires, by many other nuclear sacrifce zones in the USA and, around the world.
    Libby produced a pod cast, about nuclear polluted santa fe and surrounding areas are in 2019, on Nuclear Hot Seat. Americium and plutonium in the water tables of Los Alamos and santa fe. High level radiation, dust blowing everywhere. The govt. Made her take it down.

    Santa fe, Las vegas nm, los alamos have mucho, nuke waste. Everyone knows it . Trucks make the rounds in those areas hauling it in, and picking it up. A route goes right through Las Vegas nm. A 40,000 acre wildfire, was just there.
    The largest bomb making facility in the world. Don’t let them lie. Americans are so stupid, that they flock there and live there. Shows how stupid the rich can be. One of My Friends, from sants fe died of pancreatic cancer at 63 and his wife at 60.
    The wildfires are growing more fierce and spreading more radiation, in that area yearly.
    Phosphorus is the most pyrophoric chemical that is not so radioactive, known to man. Yet it’s borderline nuclear activity, is responsible for life on earth. That is because of phosphorus’s high reactivity and ability to produce energy in cells. Produce energy in mitochondria and the Krebs cycle. Ask Dr Busby he’ll tell ya. Ironic isn’t it.
    Now there is uranium and plutonium which are hundreds or thousands of times more phosphoric than phosphorus. White phosphorus burned Dresden to the ground and has been used in Syria but nothing compares to radionuclide pyrophoricty. When they detonated the first nuclear bomb, they honestly thought it might set the atmosphere on fire, from pyrophoricty, heat, and fallout. Yet they detonated it anyway. Now,there are so much pyrophoric radnucs from car exhaust and fracking, and nuke waste there are massive wildfires around nuke accident zones and nuke facilities around the world. People breathing that shit. No wonder rsv, covid, valley fever, chagas and everything else is rampant.
    60 students and former students, from a hi school in NJ, close to a plutonium factory, now have a rare form of radinduced brain cancer. When will the insanity end. Probably not before everyone gets cancer, from the growing chemical and nuclear pollution in the world, combined with nuclear wild fires.
