Today, representatives of the Gomel regional organization of the movement "For Freedom" association "Center for Support of Chernobyl Initiatives" and other social organizations held a conference on the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster. It came as liquidators of the Chernobyl Narovlia, Kalinkovichi, Rechitzy.
Originally planned conference at the National Center for Radiation Medicine and Human Ecology. However, four days before the administration of the conference center refused to accept the liquidators and social activists, citing travel professionals in areas related to the "Chernobyl activities."
Welcoming the participants of the conference, which was moved in the conference hall of the hotel "Tourist", the liquidator Vasily Siliverstov from Kalinkovichi said:
"In the Gomel region is now home to about 25,000 liquidators, of which about three thousand — people with disabilities. The first time the Supreme Soviet of Belarus took a good law on social protection of citizens affected by the disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. But after a decade, we can see that the law is essentially nothing left. Chernobyl liquidators and the population of Belarus were socially disadvantaged. "
Basil speaks Siliverstov
Disabled Chernobyl Ivan Witkowski with Narovlia said that currently the liquidators is even difficult to heal, and not something that is to get a group of disability:
"I'm afraid that in a few years will really Chernobyl invalids only in the executive committees. We all — go away, and leaving only those who have the power and communications. Now the trend is as follows: Group 2 are given when you are lying and not get up, 1st — posthumously. A man dies, and he comes to the group. The third did not assign "You still go!" The group now is not sick, and the budget of the state. "
Participants of the conference was presented to a member of the Belarusian Association of Journalists film Larissa Schiryakovoy "The elimination of the liquidators", filmed with the support of the movement "For Freedom." It became the heroes of the liquidators, dead and alive — with their problems, sufferings, for which the state pays less and less attention.

The shocking statistics accumulation of schoolchildren sat Potapovka radionuclides resulted doctor from Buda-Koshelevo, head of the "Help the Children of Chernobyl" Valentine Smolnikova.
It is categorically against the construction in Belarus of its nuclear power plants:
"I believe that the nuclear power plant we do not need any kind. Population will decrease electricity as we do not have to. We need to save and implement alternative sources of electricity generation. Here's what to do! "
Chernobyl liquidator of Rechitzy Michael Galko believes that the need to focus primarily on the health of people affected by the Chernobyl disaster, and then take care of the nuclear energetyku:
"Well, she gave when we can not recover from this nuclear power plant? Nothing to live on, to buy drugs. It is better to retire to raise, not to build a nuclear power plant. It is necessary to health in the first place, and then the energy. "
The same opinion is shared by the Chernobyl immigrant Adam Voronets of Dobrush district:
"I think it is not necessary to build the station. It is, first of all, is very expensive. Is not considered harmful to hurt the nuclear waste. Saving them is very expensive. These funds are planning to build a nuclear plant, we need to spend on energy efficiency to our products were not as energy intensive. If we achieve this use of energy, as in the West, the station will not need us, and so energy will be enough for our country. "
The participants adopted a resolution which requires "ensure adequate social protection to the liquidators and the population affected by the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster" and "stop the adventurous project to build a new nuclear power plant in Belarus, which violates Ohruskuyu Convention and does not correspond to the real byaspektsy Belarusian citizens .
