      The first thing visitors notice about the largest nuclear power complex in the Soviet Union is a containment dome taking its final shape around the fifth nuclear power reactor to be built here.   Storing spent nuclear fuel on the sites of shuttered nuclear power plants is foolhardy. Radioactive waste should be removed sooner than later from our ever-more vulnerable coastlines — .

      W hen a reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant exploded and burned 33 years ago, it generated a radioactive cloud that contaminated parts of the Soviet Union and Europe before dissipating.. But the accident also created a fog of misunderstanding and confusion — in large part the result of a deliberate coverup by Soviet authorities — that has been slower to lift.   However, those two weeks in which the Soviet Union tried to cover-up the severity of the accident showed the fragility and unwillingness of the USSR to implement the so-called media “openness” that was to come with Gorbachev’s glasnost. The problems with the Chernobyl nuclear power plant were well documented before the accident.

      The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear disaster which occurred on Ap at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Pripyat, that time, Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union.. This event was one of the worst accidents in the history of nuclear was rated at level 7, the most severe level, on the International Nuclear Event only other accident with a level 7. On Ap , the No. 4 nuclear reactor at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant exploded; the resulting fires and nuclear fallout spurred a crisis for the people of the nearby city of Pripyat.
