Address of the High Commissioner to commemorate the International Memory Day of Radiation Accidents and Catastrophes Victims

On April 26, 1986, the world experienced a severe man-made catastrophe — disaster on Chernobyl NPP. Millions of people were exposed to radiation, hundreds of thousands lost their health and homes.

Today we pay homage to those who died in radiation accidents and catastrophes paying tribute to the unprecedented courage, dedication and strength of the people who eliminated terrible consequences of the nuclear accident, risking their lives and health. The hero-liquidators and their heroic feat will never be forgotten neither by us, nor by the future generations.

The tragedy of 1986 made many people think in a new way and unite the efforts to help their neighbors. Today is another compelling reason to realize that we are responsible for every action we take. Our common responsibility is to do everything so that the nightmare of Chernobyl will never happen again.

Dear veterans of Chernobyl! Thank you very much for your feat! The memory of your fallen comrades will always be in our hearts. I wish you good health, happiness, prosperity and peace!
