Description

The adverse technogenic impact of industrial accidents that have gripped the world in recent decades definitely testifies to the problem-ridden character of contemporary economic and technological development. This is especially evident on the example of nuclear industry, which proved to be a source of dangerous pollution in case of potential (and real) catastrophes, as recently borne out by the Fukushima disaster. In this regard, the issues of Chernobyl disaster once again become the part of the discourse centered on the analysis of global nuclear industry problems. Likewise, current situation in Ukraine demands deeper investigation of the problems of technological development, as the gradual decay of industrial infrastructure inherited from the period of the USSR presents ever greater threat to the prospects of the nation’s further development. Therefore the examination of the consequences of the Chernobyl catastrophe is of a great importance for the purpose of more complex understanding of the situation of modern Ukraine.

The Chernobyl Disaster : reflection after 25 years = 切爾諾貝爾核災難25年後的反思

The adverse technogenic impact of industrial accidents that have gripped the world in recent decades definitely testifies to the problem-ridden character of contemporary economic and technological development. This is especially evident on the example of nuclear industry, which proved to be a source of dangerous pollution in case of potential (and real) catastrophes, as recently borne out by the Fukushima disaster. In this regard, the issues of Chernobyl disaster once again become the part of the discourse centered on the analysis of global nuclear industry problems. Likewise, current situation in Ukraine demands deeper investigation of the problems of technological development, as the gradual decay of industrial infrastructure inherited from the period of the USSR presents ever greater threat to the prospects of the nation’s further development.
