Ksenya Semenova writes [1] on OpenDemocracy.net about the reactions of Sakhalin residents to the situation in Japan: “I have some friends in Japan […]. From their relations and from the internet they have discovered what's going on in the Russian Far East at the moment. They sigh deeply and smile ruefully, ‘People there are panicking more than they are hereā€¦'” On GlobalPost, Miriam Elder examines [2] Chernobyl survivors’ views on how the 1986 tragedy is different from the ongoing catastrophe in Fukushima.
