Recordative occasion at Parliament on Chornobyl cataclysm

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

A Memorable roundtable devoted to the 32nd anniversary of the Chornobyl disaster was held at the premises of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine

On April 26, Ukraine will honor all the heroes-liquidators and victims of the Chernobyl disaster. This tragic event has also been marked with the support of the leadership of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.  The Chornobyl Association of People’s Deputies of Ukraine together with the Ministry of Energy and Coal Mining held this memorable roundtable on April 24.

The event was attended by parliamentarians, members of the association, experts in nuclear energy, and activists of the public Chornobyl-related organizations. The participants of the event honored the memory of all the radiation victims with a minute's silence.

During the event, the Chornobyl liquidators shared their own memories.

The participants of the recordative roundtable focused on the problem of Chornobyl accident liquidators' insurance, which could become one of the most effective mechanisms of social support of the liquidators and those who suffered from the awful debacle.

In association with the Nuclear Insurance Pool, which spans more than twenty Ukrainian insurance companies, there has been concluded a Preliminary cooperation agreement with the aim of developing relevant proposals for the Chernobyl insurance mechanism. Participants of the commemorable meeting have witnessed an official exchange between the teams of signatories of the above agreement.

During the event, the participants considered and adopted the draft resolution concerning a range of economic problems in the Chernobyl social programmes and how to address them.

The final version of the draft resolution will be sent out to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, to the ministries and departments engaged, to the core parliamentary committees and widely promulgated in the media.
