Press note:
The International Human Rights Commission regrets the biggest and tragic history of the 20th century related to the accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, which occurred on April 26, 1986 in the city of Pripyat, Ukraine.
Throughout this time, since the beginning of the liquidation of the accident, the military, firefighters, rescuers, helicopter pilots have been treated for the highest radiation, because of which they died, suffered from radioactive disease, but felt great patriots from saving all of humanity from nuclear radiation (from the cloud that passed across Europe and covered many countries).
This is a great signal to humanity, which to this day scares many countries with nuclear weapons. But they still do not understand, or do not want to understand, that precisely the same for a nuclear attack, their population will also die.
First Deputy the Secretary General in the world Yuri Kiperman participated in the elimination of the consequences of the accident, was engaged in resettlement of people in the Dnipropetrovsk region. Tens of thousands of families needed housing, treatment. Also, Yuri Kiperman provided free of charge for more than 2000 families of participants in the liquidation of telephone communications. For this he was awarded a medal, which was handed to him by the liquidators of the Chernobyl disaster.
Humanity, people, should remember this tragedy and wonder whether any country needs such weapons.

Faithfully yours,
Secretary General IHRC
Sir Rafal M.Wasik
