About the place

On April 26, 2018, to the 32nd anniversary of the tragedy at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, a monument to the heroes-liquidators of the Chernobyl disaster was unveiled.

On April 26, 1986, at night, an explosion occurred at the fourth power unit of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. As a result of this disaster, fifty thousand square kilometers of territories in about twenty countries of Europe and Asia were affected by radiation.

The lands of Ukraine with the population of the infection zone of three and a half million Ukrainians suffered the most. 16803 residents of Zaporizhzhia took part in the liquidation of the accident.

It was in their honor that this monument was unveiled. Ruben Ohannisian became his sculptor, and Vadym Petrenko became an architect. The installation site was chosen by the veterans of the Chernobyl tragedy.

The memorial was erected on a round site, symbolizing the planetary scale of the disaster. On it is a sloping slab that represents the scorched earth. A three hundred kilogram ball is a peaceful atom that has gone out of control and has been stopped on an inclined area. It was as if he appeared from the temporary arch of the portal - as a symbol of the division of life into before and after the accident. The bell at the memorial is an integral element on almost all monuments dedicated to the events of the disaster and its liquidators.
