Maria's 25th Chernobyl Anniversary Message
Click here to see Maria's message.
In preparation for the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster on 26 April, Russian tennis star and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Goodwill Ambassador Maria Sharapova has called on the world to remember the ongoing suffering of those forced to leave the contaminated regions, as well as the heroism of the emergency workers who responded to the accident.
The 1986 Chernobyl disaster is the worst nuclear power plant accident in history. Radioactive contamination was released into the atmosphere over much of Western Russia and Europe, and more than 130,000 people were relocated from the immediate surroundings of the stricken plant.
"Today, while the anniversary is filled with sadness, we also acknowledge that this is a time for hope, as we move forward in building a better future for all those whose lives have been changed by this tragedy," said Sharapova in a global video message released today.
"At the same time my thoughts today are with the people of Japan who are facing a nuclear disaster," she added.
Since her appointment as UNDP Goodwill Ambassador in February 2007, Sharapova has focused on advocating for the achievement of global anti-poverty goals, with an emphasis on promoting the recovery of Chernobyl-affected areas.
Sharapova was born in 1987 in Siberia, after her family fled Gomel, in what is now Belarus, one of the affected regions, in the wake of the Chernobyl accident.
Last year she visited Gomel to see for herself the work of a number of UNDP youth-focused projects that the Maria Sharapova Foundation has helped fund.
She also met with the 2010 winners of a five-year Maria Sharapova Foundation Scholarship for Youth from the Chernobyl-Affected Areas of Belarus that assists talented students gain access to high-quality education in the country's leading universities. The scholarship programme was launched in 2009 as a joint initiative between the Foundation and UNDP.
Sharapova has also made a personal contribution of USD250,000 to expand a UNDP-supported programme that provides sports and physical activities for youth in the three countries affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
Sharapova donates $250,000 to Chernoybl relief on anniversary
Maria Sharapova donates $250,000 to expand a United Nations Development Program (UNDP) that provides sports and physical activities for youth in the three countries affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, which occurred 25 years ago on April 26.
Sharapova was born in 1987 in Siberia after her family fled one of the affected regions of the Chernobyl accident, Gomel, in what is now Belarus. The 24-year-old has been a UNDP Goodwill Ambassador since 2007 and runs a foundation under her name that awards five-year university scholarships to youth from the area. Sharapova delivered a world wide video message about the tragedy last weekend.
"Today, while the anniversary is filled with sadness, we also acknowledge that this is a time for hope, as we move forward in building a better future for all those whose lives have been changed by this tragedy," said Sharapova, who has donated $750,000 out of her own pocket to the cause. "At the same time my thoughts today are with the people of Japan who are facing a nuclear disaster."—Matthew Cronin
Day 2 at the Mutua Madrileña Madrid Open and the clay is finally red!!!. Looking forward to competing again, I have had enough of these hard training sessions. I thought you would enjoy some photos from my birthday dinner. It was a great evening with family and close friends.

I do0n't know if the Russian Orthodox Church celebrates Pascha at the same date this year (I know they're using the Julian calendar), but just in case, you might want to greet Masha for Pascha in either Church Slavonic or Russian:
Хрїстóсъ воскрéсе! Воистину воскресе! (Christos voskrese! Voistinu voskrese!)--Church Slavonic
Христос воскрес! Воистину воскрес! (Christos voskres! Voistinu voskres!)--Russian
Christ is risen! Indeed, He is risen!
This is the usual greeting in the Orthodox Church during Pascha.

A message from Maria
Posted on April 26, 2011
25 years ago today, my life changed forever and I was not even born yet!! I know that sound impossible, but when the worst nuclear disaster in the history of the world happened 40 miles from where my entire family lived, life changed for many families like mine. Soon after the disaster my mother became pregnant with little old me!!! My parents had to act fast because this was no place to be pregnant and have a baby. Luckily, my Grandparants were working in western Siberia and we fled to the city of Nyagan, where I was born. Two years later, my parents still did not want to bring me back near the disaster and we moved to Sochi, Russia. I started playing tennis at age 4 and I think everyone knows the story from there.
BUT!!! The story people don't know is what I want to focus on today. How one disaster completely effected one area in the world and how 25 years later it still haunts my people. But today I want to thank and remember all the great heroes and their families that sacrificed their lives to help people during this disaster. I want to focus on the future and give everyone hope in this region that they can live normal lives, and dream BIG. Please take the time to "click" around my special Chernobyl page on my site if you would like to learn more about Chernobyl and how you can help.
