The Chernobyl Zone – as a site of the important historical event, as an ensemble of hundreds unique technical and cultural monuments, as a natural phenomenon – rightfully deserves inclusion into the UNESCO list of the world heritage sites and conversion into the national cultural and natural park.
The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. It is considered to be the worst nuclear power plant disaster in the world’s history. About 135 000 people were evacuated from the 30-km radius around the plant, with the peripheral areas remaining at a high risk of radioactive exposure. Over the following years about 600,000 people known as “the liquidators” worked on clean-up operations inside the 30-km Zone.
