The article describes the actions of the Soviet authorities undertaken throughout the first fortnight after the Chernobyl disaster. It addresses the questions of the liquidation of the disaster’s consequences, protection of people against radiation exposure, and information policy both in the country and abroad. It also attempts to answer the question where the mistakes were made and from what they resulted.
