Biography

Russian nuclear power planet explosion. Reactor No.4 exploded and caught fire, contaminating vast areas of Ukraine, Russia and Belarus and spewing a radioactive cloud over Europe. The Kremlin tried to conceal the accident and delayed evacuation of people from nearby towns for days. Firefighters and other workers who were the first at the destroyed reactor had little or no protection from radiation.

More than 4,000 cleanup workers died and 70,000 were disabled by radiation in Ukraine alone. About 3.4 million of Ukraine's 50 million population are considered affected. The Ukraine will suffer effects of the accident for years to come. Millions of its citizens are affected by radiation-related ailments.

Since the accident, the planet experienced many malfunctions, and it was an immense relief to not only the Ukraine but the people of the world when the plant was closed 14 years later.

LMR quotes sites on Internet

In April '86 there was daylight saving time in Moscow and the Ukraine (1 hour ahead): so correction of time is GMT+4.

Sally Davis gives 1:35 AM local time in Astrology Quarterly Autumn/1998 as the time in the process when Chernobyl's operators had to admit that they were in big trouble.
