I got this rare book during my stay at an NGO in Minsk, in 2006. Although it’s from 1996 – it is not outdated. The IAEA, for example, still underpins it’s version of Chernobyl desaster and victim numbers on facts from 1986 and older. They say: 30 something people died, that’s it.
So, this book is up to date. Today Belarussian Government tries “to end” Chernobyl (with international atomic industry support) – have a look HERE , even the official radiation map the Belarussian Health Ministry made is now forbidden. More on this issue comes today on my blog. For now have look inside of the Main Scientific Reports. It’s about the situation, the problems, actions, state programs, existing programs, plans for the future, major problems of minimizing and overcoming the Chernobyl consequences, aftereffects, the role of science, public health situation in Belarus, low radiation, risks, rising rate of thyroid cancer, the dynamics of congenital and hereditary pathologies in Belarus after the Chernobyl catastrophe, perception of radiation risk and it’s effect on peoples lives in Chernobyl-affected areas, atomic power development and prospects, social aspects of the international humanitarian cooperation from the the record of the Belarussian Charitable Foundation “For the Children of Chernobyl”. Here is the cover:
And now two excerpts from the MSR papers:
This excerpt is from V. Nesterenko – Dr. Prof, Director of the Institute of Radiation Security Belarusian Academy of Sciences. This section is about the old legislations on radiation protection – which are still in force, in the U.S., UK and France. It’s about the 30 km zone around Chernoby – the no-go area. Nesterenko says in this excpert, that the levels of radiation are still dangerous for the population at 100 – 150 km distance from the reactor. Also the food 150 – 200 km from the reactor is still contaminated. This is what Belarusian Government and the IAEA today ignore. Instead they want the people to live there, it’s called the CORE / ETHOS program: More on that HERE
The next excerpt is from David R. Marples (Memo wordpress.tekknorg: I met him in Minsk, April 2006) – University of Alberta, Canada. It’s about the RBMK Chernobyl reactor design flaws and the suicide of the leader of the Soviet delegation to the IAEA:
