Caption: Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Gas mask resting on a branch outside a house evacuated after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. On 26 April 1986 an explosion destroyed one of the reactors at the Chernobyl power station, Ukraine. About one quarter of the nuclear material in the reactor's core was released into the environment. The authorities declared a 30 kilometre exclusion zone around the plant, evacuating 135,000 people to the nearby city of Kiev. About 1000 square km of land and 60,000 buildings were contaminated by the fallout. Photographed in 1989.
