Caption: Chernobyl disaster. A water engineer monitors radiation levels in the River Dnepr at Kiev, shortly after the Chernobyl nuclear accident. On 26 April 1986, a reactor at the Chernobyl power station, Ukraine, exploded. This left the radioactive core exposed, releasing some 50 million curies of fallout. Kiev, capital city of Ukraine, is just 130km down-river from the Chernobyl complex, but escaped catastrophe due to the wind direction. Nevertheless, rivers were monitored for several months, as they were fed by water from the disaster area.
