Caption: Chernobyl disaster. Soldiers placing a 'restricted zone' (zapretnaya zona) sign on a road leading towards Chernobyl shortly after the nuclear accident. An explosion destroyed one of the reactors at the Chernobyl power station, Ukraine, on 26 April 1986. About one quarter of the nuclear material in the reactor's core was released into the environment. The authorities declared a 30km exclusion zone around the plant, evacuating 135,000 people to the nearby city of Kiev. The exclusion zone is still in force, with workers at the Chernobyl plant being brought in by train every day. The fall-out from Chernobyl was detected all over the globe.
