A radioactive cloud blew around the world affecting many countries. Areas of Ukraine, where the Chernobyl power station is based, and due to the wind direction, areas in neighbouring Belorus, huge damage was caused. The region now known as the exclusion zone including Ukraine and Belorus cannot be inhabited by humankind for hundreds of thousands of years. Thousands of people have died in direct consequence of the Chernobyl disaster and hundreds of thousands of others have had their lives changed altogether, through trauma, illness and forced evacuation and transmigration from their homes.
