Meeting of Cadets with the Liquidators of the Accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant

On the eve of the International Day of Remembrance for Victims of Radiation Accidents and Catastrophes, cadets of the Police Faculty met with the liquidators of the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster.

Participants in the liquidation of the consequences of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, the colonel of the police in reserve Igor Ivanovich Kutsenkov and the retired colonel Vasily Arsen'evich Nevmerzhitsky told the students about the tragedy.

Vasily Nevmerzhitsky, in the rank of a militia major in the headquarters of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the organization and conduct of dispersal and evacuation of the population, was directly involved in the evacuation of citizens. "After those events to date, I can easily imagine what it means to evacuate a thousand people, ten thousand people or more. In 1986, we evacuated more than one hundred thousand. This is a huge figure, which can be realized only through those days of human suffering, "Vasily Arsentyevich said.

Igor Kutsenkov being a lieutenant of the militia was a part of the combined detachment of the Minsk City Executive Committee and was serving in Babchin village of Khoiniki district. "Our task was to prevent penetration into the territory that was exposed to severe radioactive contamination. However, this did not prevent people from experiencing destiny and trying to illegally penetrate these lands for their things. There were also marauders. However, in general, the service was calm, "he said.

At the end of the conversation, the veterans-liquidators noted that for each male generation had difficult tests, such as the First World War, World War II, the First Chechen War and the Chernobyl tragedy. They wanted our generation to be healthy and never faced with such trials.

Such meetings are an integral part of the formation of cadets and the formation of a person with a broad outlook and knowledge in many spheres of life.
