This motion has not been discussed in the Assembly and commits only those who have signed it.
On the 26th of April 1986, the
worst nuclear disaster in history took place in the nuclear powerplant
near Chernobyl in Ukraine, causing a number of direct casualties.
The consequences of the disaster both on the health of the people
concerned as well as on the environment continue to be extensive
up to the present date.
After 25 years, it is time to evaluate the long term consequences
of this disaster on:
- the environment;
- human health;
- the economic and social situation
in both Belarus and Ukraine.
Several NGO’s in the affected countries, but also in other
member states of the Council of Europe have been working for almost
25 years to bring direct aid to the victims and to improve the situation
of the local population.
The 2011 second part-session of the Parliamentary Assembly
is an excellent occasion to answer these questions, to commemorate
the victims and to reunite the people involved and interested.
