Address of High Commissioner on the International Day for the Remembrance of Radiation Accidents and Disasters Victims

26 April 2017
Address of High Commissioner on the International Day for the Remembrance of Radiation Accidents and Disasters Victims

April 26, 1986, the world experienced a severe man-made disaster — an accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Millions of people were exposed to radiation, hundreds of thousands — lost their health and shelter.

Paying the debt to the exploit of the liquidators of the Chernobyl catastrophe consequences, we honor the memory of those who died in radiation accidents and disasters, expressing gratitude to the people who selflessly stood up for defense against nuclear danger, as a reminder of humanity’s responsibility for the fate of the planet.

The consequences of the radiation accident have not been overcome so far. This is the common pain of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, which is shared by the entire world community. The tragedy of 1986 forced many people to think in a new way, to unite their efforts in helping others.

Today is another reason to once again think about how fragile the world is.

A noticeable contribution to the comprehensive solution of the Chernobyl regions problems is made by the Union State: this is the provision of a complex treatment, programs to jointly overcome the consequences of the disaster, the Republican Scientific and Practical Center for Radiation Medicine and Human Ecology in Gomel, targeted assistance to over 70,000 people, rehabilitation of land and much more.

It is a pity that Ukraine was outside the common platform of Russia and Belarus to continue liquidation of the consequences.

I call on not to forget the feat of people who saved humanity from the apocalypse. We are obliged to do all we can to help those who continue to work or to be treated. Comprehensive support and respect is exactly what the Chernobyl victims need today and tomorrow. Our sacred duty is to do everything to prevent the nightmare of Chernobyl from happening again.

A bright memory of those who worked, overcoming the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster, will live in the grateful hearts of people!
