Ten years ago the worst ever nuclear accident occurred at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, when one of the four reactors exploded and caught fire, spewing radiation over an area inhabited by millions of people. The construction fault that led to the accident exists in the other still-functioning reactors of the Chernobyl plant. Ukraine lacks the funds to repair the enormous concrete and steel sarcophagus which entombs the remains of the destroyed reactor. Gaping holes in the roof are clearly visible. At the Centre for Radiology Medicine in Moscow, which specializes

in treating children affected by Chernobyl, a former liquidator and his son have come for medical care.

Russian President Boris Yeltsin has honoured a group of workers who risked their lives during the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

Yeltsin conferred medals of honour to 23 workers at a ceremony in Moscow and promised to do everything possible to prevent another nuclear disaster.

The ceremony came in the wake of last weekend's nuclear summit and almost a decade after the world's worst nuclear accident.

These are the heroes of Chernobyl - men and women who risked their lives almost ten years ago during the world's worst nuclear accident.

The so-called liquidators helped to seal-up reactor number four after it exploded on April 26, 1986.

They also took part in the cleanup efforts.

A decade on, they were honoured by Russian President Boris Yeltsin in the Kremlin.

The 23 courageous people were bestowed with Russia's Order of Courage and Order of Honour medals by the president himself.

Among those others awarded were doctors who treated disaster victims, radiation scientists and construction workers who took part in the clean-up operation.

Many of their colleagues have since died from exposure to radiation.

The ceremony comes after last weekend's nuclear summit in Moscow where leaders of the world's leading industrial nations discussed nuclear safety.

A commemorative concert was performed in the Ukrainian capital

Kiev on Friday (26/04), on the tenth anniversary of the Chernobyl

nuclear disaster.

An explosion in the Chernobyl nuclear power station ten years ago

spread radioactive contamination over a vast area of Belarus,

Ukraine and Russia, as well as a large swath of Europe.

The disaster has taken a serious toll on the Ukranian economy.

During the past four years, Ukraine has spent three billion

dollars on Chernobyl, five times more than the amount devoted to

health, culture and education.

The concert also paid tribute to the 300,000 Ukrainians who helped

to cope with the disaster, many of whom are already dead.

Russian/Nat

The only operational reactor at Ukraine's Chernobyl nuclear power plant has gone back on line after the end of repairs which were delayed for nearly a month.

Reactor number three at the station, where the world's worst nuclear accident occurred in 1986, had been under repair since it was shut down on December 15 last year.

Chernobyl's reactor number three was shut down in December for repairs that were initially delayed because of energy shortages in the former Soviet republic.

It was to have come back on line February 16, but the state nuclear energy company Energoatom said it needed more time to fix it.

Repairs included safety upgrades and a check of the reactor's regular and emergency cooling systems, which had some 50 defects.

Reactor number three is the only one remaining of four originally operating at the plant.

SOUNDBITE: (Russian)

"We will heat up the reactor to nominal power and if everything is fine at 1800 on March 6 reactor number three will be hooked up to the electricity grid."

SUPER CAPTION: Andrei Shantsev,Reactor shift supervisor

Reactor number four - which blew up 13 years ago, spewing radiation over large parts of Europe - has been covered in a protective concrete covering ever since.

The other two reactors at Chernobyl were closed down in 1991 and 1996 respectively.

Chernobyl has been riddled by controversy since the catastrophe in 1986.

The concrete sarcophagus covering reactor number four has been the subject of apocalyptic predictions about its safety, with some experts predicting it could collapse causing disaster.

Although the Ukrainian government has pledged to shut down Chernobyl completely by 2000, the severe energy crisis in the former Soviet republic puts the promise in doubt.

Ukraine relies on its five nuclear power stations for 40 percent of its energy needs.

Therefore atomic energy authorities in the country have lobbied hard for Chernobyl's remaining reactor to be repaired and put into operation again.

SOUNDBITE: (Russian)

"We received the permission of the administration body of atomic regulation for reactor number three to work in the electricity grid. Therefore after around 48 hours of work at nominal power, the reactor will hook up to the grid and will account for around three per cent of the energy output of Ukraine."

SUPER CAPTION: Andrei Shantsev, Reactor shift supervisor

Meanwhile, workers at the Chernobyl plant are continuing a protest action, which started on March 2.

The protesters, who are demanding wage arrears, have set up a tent city in the town of Slavutich, where most of Chernobyl's personnel live.

SOUNDBITE: (Russian)

"Many workers are refusing to take rest after they have finished their shift and go to the town square to take part in the protest. Also they refuse to sleep and come to work having not rested. Of course, all that has a bad effect on the work of the station."

SUPER CAPTION: Oleg Goloskopkov, Head of public relations, Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station

The workers warn that disorder in the nuclear power industry could endanger the safety of the country's nuclear plants.

The protests began when the government failed to heed nuclear energy workers' demands in similar demonstrations last summer.

Last week, the government pledged 33 point three (M) million dollars to pay back wages, but never issued the actual order to pay.

The workers have threatened to stage hunger strikes, reduce plants output and even hold a full-blown strike beginning March 22 if their demands are not met.

Twelve years after the Chernobyl nuclear accident the concrete sarcophogus covering the reactor is leaking and radioactive machinery is littered for kilometres around the plant. People living in the settlement of Polesskoye, within the 30km contaminated zone near Chernobyl, stubbornly refuse to leave their homes and continue to live and trade in the radioactive area. An internationally funded operation is still going on to clean up the power plant. The latest effort is financed by American-Canadian money and involves disinfecting building

materials which were stockpiled near Chernobyl at the time of the nuclear accident so they can be re-used. Management at Chernobyl has constantly warned over the last year that the concrete sarcophogus built over the reactor is on the verge of collapsing due to countless cracks.
