In the absence of formal notifications, which were later spread throughout the world with a delay, almost fatal rain reported us about the Chernobyl disaster.
News were accompanied by fear of an unknown acid, but this panic quickly turned into self-organization and solidarity. Later Serbia invited approximately a hundred young Ukrainians who were lived a few weeks in Serbian families.
For Serbia, as for the other countries, Chernobyl – is a symbol of suffering, and the reason of this is the modern technology, but meanwhile it’s also a symbol of solidarity and unity in the struggle to preserve the environment.
