Chernobyl: Prelude of a Disaster Publisher's Summary

A nominee for Heorhij Stepanovych Kyrylenko National Prize 2019 and winner of the Best Journalistic Report on Chernobyl Disaster named by Kyiv Today, this book unfolds the events of the worst nuclear accident, also depicted in the world famous Chernobyl 2019 TV drama series, with more in-depth details. Read on to discover more....

At 01:23 AM in the morning of April 26, 1986, the world was shaken by a man-made nuclear disaster: Unit 4 of the Chernobyl power plant met historical devastation that night, resulting in lasting ecological, medical, and political effects.

The causes of such an accident long remained behind the veil of governmental secrecy. For years, people remained shocked by an RBMK explosion, and its ramifications remained unforeseen for years. The careless response and irresponsible state attitude toward the dangers of nuclear catastrophe brought more harm to the world, endangering widespread populations living in Eastern Europe to far in the west.

The complete account of the Chernobyl disaster could have only been drawn by connecting its dots with the historical development of nuclear power in the world, particularly in the Soviet Union.

After 10 years of research, observations from the conducted investigations, and historical and on-going developments at the Chernobyl, the author Svetlana Kostenko has prepared a detailed and in-depth book of this nuclear accident and unfolded all the series of events that led to this eventual disaster.

Who was truly responsible for the explosion?

Was it a human error, a technical fault, or mere propaganda?

Chernobyl: Prelude of a Disaster is an honest narration of the incident through the eyes of the on-site witnesses and the liquidators who worked there.

The event has many stories to tell and teach mankind about the inevitable consequences of a poorly managed power resource. Deceit and misinformation cannot take any state ahead but only weaken it at its foundations.
