|Chernobyl: reflections on some accident lessons|
Series: RADIATION PROTECTION: THE WAY IT WAS. Issue 2
Author: Rudolf M. Barkhudarov — specialist in dosimetry, protection physics, radiation safety, radiation hygiene and ecology. He dealt with the radiological consequences of global fallout of nuclear explosion products, modeling and studying the processes of radionuclides migration along food chains, metabolism in the human body and the formation of dose loads. A great place in his scientific activity is occupied by works on epidemiological and experimental studies of the small radiation doses effect and the justification of the intake limits for certain radionuclides into the human body. Since May 1986 he took an active part in studying the consequences of the Chernobyl accident, developing and implementing recommendations for protecting the population of the affected areas and eliminating the consequences of the accident as Deputy Head of the interdisciplinary team of the Institute of Biophysics, then the head of the laboratory, and from 1992 to 1996 in the capacity of Deputy Director of the Russian Scientific Expert-Analytical Center Goskomchernobyl of Russia. Since 1987, Member of the Russian Scientific Commission on Radiation Protection.

|Socio-economic consequences of the Chernobyl accident (on the example of the Bryansk region)|
The brochure is devoted to the analysis of the socio-economic consequences of the Chernobyl accident in the retrospective of the policy conducted in relation to the contaminated territories of Russia for two decades. The example of the Bryansk region and its southwestern areas shows how the accident and its consequences affected the economy of the region. The problem is examined in the brochure from several levels: international assessments of the socio-economic consequences of the Chernobyl accident are correlated with solutions for overcoming the consequences of the accident that were adopted in different years; and specific factual material from the life of the region and separate settlements. Based on the experience of implementing investment projects, approaches to the economic revitalization of contaminated areas are shown.
The brochure is addressed to specialists of public authorities and local self-government bodies, teachers and students of universities, representatives of international organizations, and activists of public associations.
