Photo and description
Memorial monument "Victims of Chernobyl" It was opened in Mozyr opposite the city executive committee on the 10th anniversary of the explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant on April 26, 1996.
In Mozyr now there are about 2 thousand liquidators of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Basically, these are servicemen of various units, thrown by the leadership of the USSR to decontaminate contaminated areas. The soldiers were not given dosimeters and were not even explained to the full extent of the danger to which irresponsible officials were dooming them.
Some liquidators have already died, others have become disabled. The Government of the Republic of Belarus does not forget about Chernobyl victims, paying them benefits and pensions. Now in the Republic of Belarus there are four state programs of assistance to victims of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
Every year, large rallies gather at the monument to the Victims of Chernobyl. The surviving liquidators and ordinary people want to draw the government's attention to their needs.
The monument is made in the form of a symbolic white chapel, personifying an invisible danger to the eye, inside which there is a black stone memorial sign on which the year of the Chernobyl accident is engraved. A Christian cross is installed above the chapel. Here, every year on the anniversary of the tragedy, prayers are held in memory of the terrible catastrophe.
In 2001, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Alexy came to Mozyr. He addressed the townspeople gathered at the monument: “The Chernobyl disaster is still making itself felt today. But your pain is our pain and we are with you. ”
