“ …The international community must renew its efforts to help the people of the affected regions take control of their lives again. The aftermath of the Chernobyl accident is simply too much for the people to cope with alone. We simply cannot turn our backs. We can and must do more to help bring development and hope to the affected people”…
“…nearly 8.4 million people in Belarus, Ukraine and Russia were exposed to radiation. Some 150.000 square kilometres… were contaminated. Agricultural areas covering nearly 52.000 sq. km were ruined. Nearly 400.000 people were resettled but millions continued to live in an environment where continued residual exposure created a range of adverse effects. Now, roughly 6 million people live in affected areas. Chronic health problems, especially among children, are rampant.”
