Some 100 people gathered near the Chornobyl memorial in Kyiv on April 26 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the tragedy and its victims.

Thirty years ago, on the early morning of April 26, 1986, one of the four reactors of the Chornobyl power plant exploded.

Hear what it sounded like when the dispatcher at the local firefighting station found out about the tragedy minutes after the explosion: “Chilling phone calls of Chornobyl emergency dispatchers minutes after explosion (AUDIO)”
