Press Release

April 25, 2012

On Thursday, April 26, the anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster, YABLOKO will conduct a staged action by the Russian Atomic Energy Agency (Rosatom) under the slogan "Save the world from the peaceful atom"

The key demand of the picketers is to stop Rosatoms dangerous experiments in Russian nuclear power plants, namely:

- continuing functioning of 11 Chernobyl reactors RBMK-1000;
- exploitation of reactors at a power higher than projected and over the exploitation term;
- construction of new nuclear power plants in accordance with pilot projects NPP-2006 and MTBF.

Further development of these dangerous experiments is a way to new disasters, say the organizers of the picket, YABLOKO and environmental organisations.

Activists wearing the costumes of the death will tell about the threats of "peaceful atom". An activist in a mask of Rosatom's head Sergey Kiriyenko will also join them.

Activists from the movement Otkritiy Bereg, Sreda Obitaniya, Khraniteli radugi, the Moscow Society for Protection of Nature and Socio-Ecological Union will participate in the action.

The action will start at 12:30.

Address: Tretyakovskaya metro station, Bolshaya Ordynka 24.

Also YABLOKO will hold the same action in Chelyabinsk, where YABLOKO activists, environmentalists and civil activists will pay tribute to the memory of liquidators of the Chernobyl disaster.

The activists will fly 26 balloons symbolizing 26 years since the tragedy.

The action will begin at 18:00.
