– A REALLY REALLY SHORT STORY ABOUT THE CHERNOBYL TRAGEDY –

The Chernobyl nuclear disaster began early in the early hours of Saturday 26 April 1986 within the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. An explosion and fire released large quantities of radioactive contamination into the atmosphere, which spread over much of Western USSR and Europe. It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history and is one of only two classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale (the other being the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011).

If you want to know more, please consider studying the real story of the tragedy and look for reliable informations.

If you don’t know where to start i suggest you to read this book:

Chernobyl Prayer, A Chronicle of the Future” by Svetlana Alexievich (Literature Nobel Prize 2015)
