Photographer's Note

If one compare the amount of victims of car accidents and all nuclear events (including Hiroshima) it will be completely uncomparable values - tens of millions on one side and something like half of the million on the other.
But years of Mutual Assured Destruction, funny rockets deep down in the silos, aimed at you, and all the hell's fire inside all the nuclear plants around the globe, waiting there for some human to make some mistake - that's what frightens people much more than any number of victims.
Nuclear energy yields something wich actually frightens - and last Japan events showed quite clearly, that these fears are not completely idiotic.
This monument in the park in one of suburbs of St-Petersburg was erected as the memorial for the victims of the nuclear breakdowns all around the world.
St-Petersburg Chernobyl Society, Society of the victims of Mayak plant accident, Japans from Hiroshima and Nagasaki an many other people vizit the plave annually, to refreshen the memories.
And the Threat are still there, you know.
