The Ukrainian Congress Committee of America issued the following statement on April 26.
Thirty-four years ago, Chornobyl’s Nuclear Reactor No. Four exploded in the early morning hours of April 26, 1986. Releasing 400 times more radioactive material than the atomic bomb in Hiroshima, the explosion remains the worst nuclear disaster in history. The subsequent acts of the imperialistic Russian regime not only intensified the irreparable harm done to Ukraine and its people, but also demonstrated a blatant and callous disrespect for human life.
