Caption: Soviet Chernobyl report to IAEA, 1987. Soviet minister speaking at the 31st meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) General Assembly, being held in the Austria Center Vienna, Vienna, Austria, on 21 September 1987. The minister is Boris Shcherbina (1919-1990), Deputy Chairman of the Soviet Council of Ministers. This meeting took place in the year following the Chernobyl incident (1986), with Shcherbina leading the Soviet commission investigating the disaster. At Chernobyl, a nuclear reaction went out of control, leading to meltdown and an explosion. Radioactive fall-out contaminated the surrounding areas, with lighter elements carried large distances across Europe. The Soviet delegation's report blamed the disaster on human error. IAEA officials at the conference include Director General Hans Blix.
