(Vandaag precies 33 jaar geleden op 26 april 1986 vindt nabij de Oekraïnse plaats (toen nog Sovjet-Unie) Tjernobyl een ernstig ongeluk paats met een kernreactor. Er komt een grote wolk met radioactief materiaal in de atmosfeer, die door de wind naar het noorden en het noordwesten wordt gedreven. De eerste melding van het ongeluk komt niet van de sovjetautoriteiten, maar van onderzoekers die radioactieve neerslag opmerken in Zweden. De meeste neerslag met radioactieve stofdeeltjes komt vrij gedurende de eerste tien dagen na het ongeluk. Rond 2 mei bereikt de radioactieve wolk Nederland en België. In Nederland krijgt het RIVM de opdracht om de metingen te intensiveren en wordt een graasverbod ingesteld om besmetting van melk te voorkomen. Tevens mag net geoogste bladgroente niet verkocht worden. Uit een nieuw onderzoek van Greenpeace in 2006 heeft de ramp in 1986 zeker aan 200.000 mensen het leven gekost. Volgens hen krijgen nog eens 350.000 mensen in Rusland, Oekraïne en Wit-Rusland kanker als gevolg van de straling.)
