VIDOTRANS-HTG transported for a few organizations full as well as part loads to the Russian Federation, e.g. Medical equipment to the city of Orjol or various relief goods to children homes in Sankt Petersburg

For the Dutch province Drenthe
we transported in corporation with foundation Demma a large amount of
hospital-operation equipment to Mytisci (near Moskva)
Guus de Groot of foundation Demma: Thanks to the knowledge of custom procedures, language and documents the operation equipment was customcleared and free to use witinn one –1- day, the same week a difficult eye operation could take place saving the sight of a young woman.
Other destinations in Russia were Syktyvkar (Komi SSSR), Volgograd, Petrozavodsk and ofcourse Sankt Petersburg and Moskva, but every other imaginable destination is possible.
transported a few times relief goods to Aziatic Russia almost 2000 km
east of Moskva, this time it concerned fruit transports to the children of Majak
in the southern Ural just north of the city of Chelyabinsk
complex Majak is the unknown sister of Tsjernobyl, a little bit less
explosive but more mean and crewel, Majak
threatens half a million Russian.
In 1949 the
operation of one of Russia’s biggest plutonium plants started in Southern Ural
(70 km’s from Chelyabinsk) Majak is a huge complex of over 90 square
kilometers surrounded by a forbidden area of 250 square kilometers with very
strict security rules.
fishing at the banks of river Tjetsja
the first years the plant pollutes the river Tjetsja by draining off
a large amount of polluted nuclear waste, from river Tjetsja it streams
into the river Ob and to the northern Ice sea.
of a dozen villages use the water from these rivers to fish, drink, swim or to
use it on the field.
River Tjetsja Green peace worker with Geiger counter
In 1957 a storage
of highly nuclear waste explodes on the plant area, one third of the
radioactivity of the 1986 Tsjernobyl disaster came free, estimations are that
over 4000 workers and soldiers got deadly ill almost immediately after the
catastrophe and died a little later. Over
10.000 workers got cancer in the 40 years after the catastrophe.
Over 10000 village people from the nearby area had to be evacuated.
An area of 13.800
square kilometers is nuclear contaminated.
incident is followed by about 10 smaller accidents, the last one in 1993, the 5
old nuclear plants are closed now but they build 3 new ones on the same
nuclear time bomb is the nearby Karatsji lake used as a nuclear storage after
the drain-off on the river Tjetsja was stopped, in 1967 radioactive dust clouds
on the dried banks of the lake again contaminated a large area. Ever since than
the water level is held high in an artificial way.

The Karatsji lake is known as the most contaminated spot on our planet, standing on the banks near the outlet point you will receive a deadly dose within one hour.
