Uladzimir Tseliapun, Mazyr activist of the Human Rights Center “Viasna”, has been awarded the Ukrainian order “Chernobyl Cross: Courage, Honour, Humanity” for his contribution to the removal of the consequences of the 26 April 1986 Chernobyl disaster on the site of the event.

“Unfortunately, we are not respected in our country for what we did back in 1986. Therefore, we keep receiving awards from our neighbours. They care not only about their “liquidators’ but about everyone who took part in the liquidation of the disaster, including Belarusians”, says Mr. Tseliapun.
