Vienna. Most Austrians are opposed to nuclear power stations. Still, power from such sources comes to the country from abroad.


Commemorating the 20th anniversary of the nuclear catastrophe at Chernobyl, several politicians have affirmed their commitment to a nuclear free Austria. Among them were not only Greens and Social Democrats but also the leader of the Freedom Party, HeinzChristian Strache. He demanded that Austria back out of the Euratom treaty which is part of the EU constitution. He also joined the Greens in criticising the government for allegedly doing too little to prevent the EU spending money on nuclear energy rather than alternatives like water, wind or solar power.

On April 26, 1986, several explosions destroyed reactor No. 4 at the Chernobyl power plant, turning it into a radioactive inferno. The Soviet government acknowledged the accident two days later -- after the fallout had set off radiation alarms in Sweden. The blaze raged for 10 days. Radioactive material was deposited worldwide.
