Eliminate the repetition of the Chernobyl disaster in Japan can not, because no one can give a guarantee that the faulty cooling system will not lead to an explosion of reactors, said in an interview with "The actual cell" liquidators of the Chernobyl NPP Viktor Safronov.
"Judging by the fact that people were evacuated in the area of 10 — 20 km from the accident, they expect that there will be a" second Chernobyl "possible", — said Safronov.
He reminded the news coming from Japan, according to which, in the third reactor, "Fukushima-1" failed system cooling.
"The reactor was not injured, as reported, but has failed cooling system, which means that the explosion is real," — said the source program.
"Every plant has to be a place where the reactor goes underground. I do not know how to "Fukushima-1" … certainly there, but the earthquake could affect the system "- suggested Safronov.
"Just because people do not evacuate," — he said, adding however, that perhaps the Japanese just reinsured, which is quite true in this situation.
Watched with my own eyes the tragedy in Chernobyl in 1986, Safronov said he was very scared when he heard that the earthquake has led to accidents and failures at the Japanese nuclear power plant.
"The first time I was scared for the people who are there. Radiation is scary "- not hiding emotions, said liquidators of the Chernobyl NPP Viktor Safronov.
