[en]Health detriment assessment has been made for the accident effect as well as for various countermeasures (relocation, decontamination, diet regulations and others). Cost-benefit analysis for averted dose including cost of countermeasures has been applied as a basis for decision-makings and optimization of post-accidental actions. Inconsistency of the experts proposed and real actions caused unjustified substantial expenditure due to non-acceptance of the experts opinion and involvement of some non-professional scientific, administrative and political authorities in planning and implementation of countermeasures
