The Chernobyl Disaster documents a real battle against time, thousands of Soviet people will never forget. During the eight months following the explosion of the nuclear plant, 800,000 young soldiers, miners, firefighters and civilians from all regions of theformer Soviet Union, worked tirelessly to try to mitigate the effects of radioactivity, to build a sarcophagus around the reactor accident and ultimately save the world fromanother probable tragedy. All were driven by fears of a dangerous chain reaction resulting from the initial explosion, a hundred times greater than the effects of the Hiroshima bomb. Remembered as the worst industrial accidents and environmental history, the Chernobyl explosion was a fallout that could be detected in the former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, England and even the eastern United States. Large areas of Ukraine, Belarus and Russia were heavily contaminated today. As a result, 200,000 people were evacuated from their homes. 60% of the radioactive dust settled in the territory of Belarus.
