April 26 - the Day of the Chernobyl tragedy

Dear participants in the liquidation
the consequences of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant!

35 years have passed since the day when the explosion of the reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant became a new starting point in the history of the development of the entire human civilization.
The consequences of the Chernobyl disaster affected many countries, but Belarus, Ukraine and Russia were the most affected. Almost a quarter of the territory, where one fifth of the population of our country lived, became the zone of radioactive contamination. Tens of thousands of people were resettled from the most contaminated areas, millions of people were exposed to low doses of radiation. For Belarus, the Chernobyl tragedy has become a national disaster.
Every year on April 26, the whole world recalls the victims and the grave consequences of the Chernobyl disaster, recalls those who, not sparing their health and life, took up the fight against the radiation element.
Belhydromet remembers all of its employees who took part in the liquidation of the consequences of the Chernobyl accident.
Thank you for your conscientious work and courage shown. We wish you and your loved ones health, happiness and prosperity!
