 Chernobyl nuclear accident 32nd anniversary former Soviet Union reporter: never forgotten


This article is a picture of the WeChat public figure of the science and Technology Daily The editor in chief said, Im not going to send you. When the nuclear accident broke out in the early morning of April 26, 1986, Stanislav, the chief reporter of the Soviet labor newspaper in Ukraine, was on the train to Kiev in Moscow. When he was interviewed by our newspaper reporter, he said that he had heard nothing at that time, and the news was completely blocked. By the time we got to Kiev, we began to hear all kinds of hearsay. The gossip had been disseminated privately, but the official news had never been seen. At 26 noon on 11 noon, the interim Emergency Committee of the Soviet Union was established. But there is still no news. He immediately called the office of the Deputy Secretary of the Central Communist Party of Ukraine, the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, and asked what had happened. The other side replied that there was an accident, a serious accident. As a reporter, he said he could not sit still. The news keeps coming and people need the truth. I think its my duty to report the truth. Stanislav Prokapchuk In April 27th, he didnt think much about it. He called Bhatta Boff, the chief editor of the labor newspaper in Moscow, and called to Chernobyl. Tomorrow I can send the manuscript, and you will soon be able to get out. Recalling the scene at that time, Stanislav sighed with emotion. Bhatta Boff is a good friend and a good man. He said to me firmly on the phone, I will not send you. He should have known something at that time. Although the editor in chief objected, he went. I didnt think too much at all, he said. At that time, people had no idea what nuclear radiation was, and it was totally unclear whether it would affect the body. I dont care about the editors objection. I just think I should go because Im a reporter. On the afternoon of April 27, 1986, all the 53000 residents in the city of Lippi and Chernobyl were all withdrawn from the 1000 buses arranged by the Soviet government. In April 28th, the government began to evacuate other residents within the radius of 10 km away from the nuclear power station. On the same day, Stanislav traveled to Chernobyl with several other reporters. At the time, there were several other journalists, photographers, TV reporters, and radio announcers, in addition to stinis. Stanislav and his colleagues drove to the accident area. Meanwhile, more evacuated vehicles were carrying people in the opposite direction. All the cattle, sheep and even dogs in the farmers yard were looking at the traffic on the road in a daze. The evacuated residents were asked to pick up a carry on bag and leave with the car in the shortest time. The house, the field, the yard to dry the clothes, and the cattle and pets in the yard did not know that they had been given up, just looking at a lot of roads that were busier than ever, Stanislav said. When I was close to Chernobyl, I began to feel a little strange. I had an indescribable metallic smell in my mouth. Now I dont understand why, but all the people in the same car feel it. Steinff recalled the scene and rubbed his lips with his fingers, probably as he did. As soon as he arrived at the destination, he began to interview the soldiers of the Soviet defense forces, miners from Armenia to excavate tunnels, local militias in Ukraine, and staff members who had always insisted on nuclear power stations at the scene of the accident. But the photographers were not so lucky, the pictures they took in the core area were later blanks, and then they knew the cause of the radiation. With regard to nuclear radiation, everyone has no experience. People who have just begun to go to the front line have no basic protection, and some are even transferred in the name of military exercises. Those young men thought they were going to put out a common fire. Those young people are like meat balls. Chernobyl is not dead After coming back from Chernobyl, Stanislav said, the most direct result was that the skin began to peel, like sunburn, falling off the floor. Later, some other diseases were directly or indirectly related to radiation, but he did not want to talk much about them. He said he was lucky than those who had sacrificed. According to Ukraines official 2006 statistics, about 2 million 400 thousand of Ukrainians (including 428 thousand children) were affected by the radiation of the accident, leading to physical and mental health problems. Human health is mainly affected by radioactive substance iodine -131. The strontium -90 and cesium -137 pollute the soil more enduring, and plants, insects and mushrooms absorb cesium -137 from the soil and present contaminated food on the human table. So some scientists worry that nuclear radiation will affect the local people for centuries. The concrete sarcophagus built at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant No. 4 nuclear reactor after the accident was closed. But Stanislav said that the description of sarcophagus or grave is not accurate. The nuclear ghost of Chernobyl is not dead but asleep. According to official estimates, there are about 95% of the fuel in the reactor (about 180 tons), and the total radioactivity of these fuels is as high as about 18 million Curie. Although the residual radioactive materials have been hardened into ceramic materials, there is a problem of radiation diffusion at any time with the weathering of the sarcophagus. At the end of 2016, a new generation of sarcophagus, 105 meters high, 150 meters long and 257 meters wide, was built by the European bank for reconstruction and development, which is expected to be formally put into use in May 2018, and the new sarcophagus will be able to run for 100 years. One hundred years later, will the specter of nuclear radiation jump out? Maybe then mankind will have higher wisdom to defeat it. Now, Im afraid its hard to predict. Speaking of the revelation of the Chernobyl nuclear accident, Stanislav was silent for a moment and began to slowly say, despite the painful costs, countless lives have been saved. If there is any inspiration, it is thanks to the Soviet era, a powerful state machine command mobilization, energy sources constantly bring people and resources, at all costs to save life, at all costs to extinguish the disaster. I think it would be hard to predict the outcome if placed in the present. 1986 and 1987, two years later, the Soviet government recruited 240 thousand people to take part in the rescue work at the scene of the accident in Chernobyl. By December 1986, the Soviet government built a sarcophagus on reactor No. 4 to close the scene of the accident. A total of 600 thousand Russians were awarded the Chernobyl emergency medal and medal. In 1987, Stanislav Plo Kapp Chuck was awarded the supreme honor of the Soviet Union, the golden pen Award by the Soviet Union, for the courage and skill unfolded in the Chernobyl accident report. There were only 32 people in the Soviet Union who won the honor, but Stanislav did not have much interest in winning the prize. He said, only TASS can have official information at that time. Although I arrived at the scene in April 28th, the reports were kept until May 11th. In fact, it was not necessary for the news control at that time. Many reporters who had rushed to the scene for the first time just wanted to tell the truth as soon as possible, but we didnt do it. From 1986 to 1987, journalists who participated in the reports of the Chernobyl nuclear accident had organized a Chernobyl journalists Federation, with hundreds of people on the scale. But with the growth of age, as well as the problems of radiation sequelae such as disease, Stanislav said, the same year has become less and less, and now there are less than 10 people in Kiev. Every April, he will remember the April of 1986. When interviewed by our reporter, Stanislav said he was also writing an article about the Chernobyl nuclear accident, preparing to appear in April 26th. He was still saying, because I am a reporter, I am a reporter coming back from the scene. This year of this year, this year in April, Kiev was red and green, although few people mentioned it, but in the heart of stestalf and a lot of people who had experienced the disaster, that day of Chernobyl, that day, everything was never forgotten.
