Ab iospheric conservation park has to be created at the territory of the former Semipalatinsk testing site, Tengrinews.kz reports from the conference of Nevada-Semipalatinsk anti-nuclear movement. According to president of the Association on Support and Development of Laboratory Service Maira Zhangelova, the scientists suggested this to continue research at the testing site. “Recently one of the scientists Aitkozha Bigaliyev talked about creation of a biospheric conservation park at the territory of the test site for further scientific researches. I think that this is a very constructive suggestion,” Zhangelova said. She noted that there was a long discussion of the initiative of transferring the test site's lands into the national control. According to the expert, such transfer should be delayed, as the scientific research of the soil, air and water reservoirs have to be continued. A biospheric concentration park is the natural zone protected by the law (taiga, steppes, tundra, etc.) that has typical biological diversity preserved and where natural biological processes are monitored and scientific researches are carried out. Active members of the international anti-nuclear movement Nevada-Semipalatinsk said that their goal is to close the nuclear test sites around the world. According to the scientist secretary of the movement Lyudmila Prus, the statement supported by Kazakhstan young people was issued on May 18, 2009. In two years it was signed by over one million Kazakhstan residents. “We want nuclear tests to be fully banned and wish to clear out the nuclear weapons from human civilization. Right now, after collection of signatures, we are moving to the global stage called Young people of the world against nuclear weapons. We are currently printing out the statements translated into German, French and English,” she said.
