Chornobyl threatens Ukraine with another danger

This time it will be polluted water for the next 300 years and radioactive clouds that will remain in the atmosphere up to the middle of this century. This tragic forecast was given by experts of the estrangement zone around the Cornobyl NPP as "5" tv channel informed.

In their opinion, a major threat comes now not from the imperfect 'sarcophagus" over the ruined IV reactor of the NPP but from the fires occurring in the contaminated woods in the 30-km zone as well as from a dam on the Prypyat river that is not strong enough, and the abandoned depots of contaminated waste and machinery. Radiation level at these places is much higher than that at the NPP, not operating already.
