Excerpt: It was a dramatic day in the history of radioactive contamination in the former Soviet Union. On 15 December 2000, a Ukrainian engineer flipped a switch at Chornobyl (formerly Chernobyl), and the infamous nuclear power plant?or rather, what was left after the 1986 explosion that sent eight tons of airborne radioactive particles across the region and into nearby countries?was finally shut down. After long resisting the closure because of the need for the energy produced by the plants remaining reactor, Ukrainian president Leonid Kuchma proclaimed that ?the world will [now] become a safer place? and ?people will live in peace.?
