Earlier reports mentioned Only the immediate Plant Vicinity which Moscow communist party chief Boris n Yeltsin described sunday in West Germany As a a danger area from which 49, 100 residents were evacuated the chernobyl Plant is about six Miles from the Holder of byelorussian which lies North of the Ukraine the statement did not specify How much of the two republics territory was affected by the Accident but said a the necessary sanitation hygienic treatment and preventive measures Are being carried a the emission of radioactive substances continues to decrease a the statement said and workers were building up the Banks of the adjacent Prip Yat River a to prevent its possible contamination Quot the Plant is near the Confluence of the Prip Yat and ugh Rivers which feed a Reservoir that empties into the Dnepr Kiver just North of Kiev a the radiation situation on the territory of the Ukraine and byelorussian is stabilizing with a tendency toward its improvement Quot the statement said. The government report did not give radiation Levels or clarify what was meant by a report on the evening television news said radiation checks at farms in the chernobyl area a have not registered any excess of permissible norms in food it did not give the norms. Yeltsin a confidant of soviet Leader Mikhail s.

A i am confident that we will discuss questions related to information what happened to those 30 Rural soviet villages mystery of Kysh tym far greater secret than chernobyl meltdown Washington it a it nearly three decades ago something happened at Kysh tym in the soviet Union that is a far greater secret than the nuclear meltdown in chernobyl. The soviet silence about Kysh tym is an enduring one and american analysts Are divided Over what happened to cause 30 Rural villages to vanish from soviet maps and to turn an area some 1,500 Miles Northwest of chernobyl into a vast radioactive wasteland in the ural mountains a i m not going to comment on speculation a said soviet spokesman Boris Malakhov giving his government s Standard statement about events around Kysh tym but soviet exiles and . Government studies paint a grim picture of the Kysh tym Region and the nearby Chelyabinsk 40, the soviets first nuclear production facility which turned out plutonium for weapons they say that by the late 1950s, an area of up to 400 Square Miles a about one third the size of Rhode Island a was poisoned by radioactivity greater than that produced by the . Atomic bombing of Japan the three mile Island Accident and perhaps the still unmeasured chernobyl meltdown the names of some 30 soviet villages simply disappeared from maps indicating a resettlement program. Agriculture became a memory. Lakes were declared off limits for fishing dams were built to con Tain radioactive Waterways Rivers were diverted with a series of canals. Zhores Medvedev a biologist who fled the soviet Union in 1973. Maintains that hundreds of people died and tens of thousands More were affected by the Kysh tym fallout a 1977 Central intelligence Agency report quoted soviet sources As saying a hundreds of people perished in late 1957 or Early 1958. Another emigre scientist Ixo Tumerman wrote about a car trip he made through the area in the Early 1960s a a Road sign warned Drivers not to Stop for the next 30 Kilometres and to drive through at maximum Speed on both sides of the Road As far As one could see the land was dead no villages no towns Only the chimneys of destroyed houses no cultivated Fields or pastures no herds no people.

Lewis Are in the process of getting their Dairy farm business and lives Back together following a feb 12 Blaze which destroyed their main barn most of their cows and some of their farm machinery. The lewites lost 62 milking cows and 19 calves in that fire As Well As their family dog. Fourteen yearlings were All that were saved of their entire Dairy Herd. Immediately after friends and neighbors Learned of the farm Blaze and the losses the lewites had incurred the couple was deluged with Calls and visits from persons who wanted to do something to help mrs. Lewis notes. Although at that particular time there was nothing much Moscow apr the government indicated monday that radiation had spread beyond the evacuated zone around chernobyl and an official said foreigners would be allowed to visit the stricken nuclear Plant when it was Safe to do so. A government statement also indicated that contamination threatened a River that feeds a major Reservoir near Kiev the ukrainian capital of 2.4 million people 80 Miles South of the disaster site. The head of the International atomic Energy Agency arrived for talks with soviet officials about the april 26 Accident. An invisible Cloud of radiation spread Over much of Europe after a reactor caught fire in the chernobyl Plant.

In a four paragraph statement distributed monday by the official it news Agency Tass. The Council of ministers said that a cleanup was under Way at the chernobyl Plant and that radiation was found in both the ukrainian and byelorussian republics. It was the soviets broadest description of the area affected and the first indication from the Kremlin that Towanda Council puts borrowing on hold to Check out legalities anyone could do to assist them. Mrs. Lewis relates it was this outpouring of caring which got them through this difficult period. With the arrival of Spring an Amish construction Crew was hired by the lewites to build Back the barn which was taken away from them in the february fire.
