Do you remember 26 April 1986?
Do you know what happened on this day?
The Chernobyl disaster!…
Lots of people in the world maybe still are not suspecting that they are victims of this nuclear disaster. Including me, Victoria, small Victoria, all of you, who read this story and all other people over the world. There are many people who are not suspecting anything.
“The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear reactor accident in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine, by this time a part of the Soviet Union. It is considered to be the worst nuclear power plant disaster in history and the only level 7 instance on the International Nuclear Event Scale.
On 26 April 1986, 01:23:44 a.m. (UTC+3) reactor number four at the Chernobyl plant, near Pripyat in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, exploded. Further explosions and the resulting fire sent a plume of highly radioactive fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive geographical area. Four hundred times more fallout was released than had been by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.
The plume drifted over extensive parts of the western Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Northern Europe, and eastern North America, with light nuclear rain falling as far as Ireland. Large areas in Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia were badly contaminated, resulting in the evacuation and resettlement of over 336,000 people. According to official post-Soviet data, about 60% of the radioactive fallout landed in Belarus.”
I still remember this day, these days after and the year and I will remember it till the end of my life. This year it was the unique year that in our garden we had the biggest green salad (lettuce) I remember.
And next 2-3 weeks we ate really enormous amount of this salad!
And do you know why?
Because nobody in Banana Republic (I will call it Bananaland for short) told people that something somewhere happened, the most horrible disaster of nowadays! WHY?!?
I don’t expect somebody to answer me now! I don’t accuse anybody now! I tell you the entire story just to know the true, and at the end just to help little Victoria to have her own legitimate father.
