Chernobyl – The World’s Nuclear Disaster

On 26th April 1986, the tragedy occurred what post-war world has not ever seen. One of the nuclear reactors at the Chernobyl power station exploded and contaminated a whole Europe. That day, no one knew what happened until Scandinavian countries reported higher radiation levels. Pripyat town build specially to allocate 50 000 inhabitants mainly workers and their families in next 3 days became a ghost town for probably hundreds years. People from a whole Ukraine were forced to clear up the power plant area, Pripyat and Chernobyl towns. Many of the workforces had serious health consequences or died during that period. Nearby forest also glowed to red.
