On the sombre occasion this past week of the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl (Chornobyl) catastrophe, the embassy of Ukraine in Greece will host a commemorative event on Friday, April 29. April 26, 2011 marked the 25th anniversary of the nuclear power plant catastrophe, which produced disastrous consequences on the environment, human health and a deterioration of the social, economic and quality-of-life conditions in the surrounding region.

During the event on Friday, a documentary film entitled “Chornobyl - The Chronicle of Hard Weeks” will be shown, while a photographic exhibition focusing on the devastating industrial accident -- with materials provided by the Ukrainian National News Agency Ukrinform -- will be inaugurated.
