On December, 1, 2005, artists of "Strontium-90" visited Chernobyl nuclear power plant. On the site of the plant the artists honored the memory of fallen Chernobyl heroes at the victims' memorial. Sr-90 Group in ChernobylThe action was conducted on the eve of President Viktor Yushchenko's visit to Chernobyl.

In a meeting with the NPP management, the artists said they are beginning an art project under the name of "Chernobyl. Between the Past and the Future". The project is devoted to the 20-anniversary of Chernobyl accident and targeted at attracting attention to the problems of Chernobyl, including shutdown Chernobyl units and 'sarcophagus' facility. The artists are convinced that Chernobyl is not especially Ukrainian tragedy. Chernobyl accident is a global scale disaster, and its overcoming is still in need of common efforts of all mankind.

Politicians and experts have long said it is unacceptable to leave the shelter problems for future generations to deal with. The 20th anniversary of Chernobyl is a reminder that a new generation has already grown up since the accident. What kind intellectual and technical heritage has received new generation? What is Chernobyl for them? Nothing more than a horror story told by older people? The artists say it is not allowed the problems to be forgotten by society with the change of generations.

n April, 22, 2006, the International Day of the Earth, artists of the group "Strontium-90" have conducted the action under the name of "Oblational Rising". Fishes purchased from fishermen were released to Dnieper River. By way of this "immolation in reverse" artists call people to show good will for the sake of saving all living things on the Earth.

The artists call to refuse human sacrifices which are still sacrificing to altar of material well-being in all branches of human life using technological innovations: from cookery and public transport up to aviation and nuclear power. The reason is imbalance between moral level of the community and level of those technologies which the society is trying to master. While this disbalance is not eliminated, the mankind is doomed to technological catastrophes.
