Cabinet of mikhail gorbachev

Agenda: Responding to the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster

On April 26, 1986, the world was forever altered by one of the most catastrophic events in modern history. A tragedy that resulted in the loss of countless innocent lives. A tragedy that forever changed the lives of those who survived.

Consequently, the Cabinet of Mikhail Gorbachev convened at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Headquarters in Vienna, Austria, almost six months later, to respond to the devastating Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Arguably the worst nuclear accident in human history thus far, it has not only resulted in the loss of many innocent lives but also caused severe damage to the environment and economy. The committee acknowledges the severity of the situation and aims to identify practical and effective solutions to mitigate the after-effects of the disaster. However, with tensions high and every member of the committee looking to blame the opposing bloc, any last hopes of cooperation start to fade.

In the wake of the disaster, the Soviet Union implemented a series of actions to address the consequences of the event. Nonetheless, the government's initial response to the catastrophe was woefully insufficient and delayed, resulting in further complications and loss of life. Therefore, this commission endeavours to identify immediate responses that are both practical and effective.


Tarun Doss

Hi, my name is Tarun Doss and it gives me great pleasure to be able to say that I will be serving as the Chairperson of the Cabinet of Mikhail Gorbachev. I am currently in grade 12 and am pursuing the IB curriculum here at Doon. Along with my aspirations of pursuing medicine in the UK, I also juggle multiple roles in school as School Captain, Football Captain, Music Captain, and President of the Round Square Council. But who needs sleep anyway, am I right?

In School, you'll often find me playing football, basketball, the piano, or dancing. My aim coming into this conference is to, as a chairperson, be able to create as engaging an experience as possible and ensure that all delegates in my committee have the most memorable MUN experience. Feel free to email me at if you have any concerns at all. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Hi, my name is Vinesh Uniyal, and it gives me great pleasure to serve as the Committee Director for the Cabinet of Mikhail Gorbachev. Currently, I’m a 12th grade student at the Doon School, pursuing the ISC curriculum, with my subjects mainly pertaining towards the field of engineering. 

Outside of the classroom, you’ll find me actively participating in activities, including dramatics, publications, music and sports. I’ve served as the School English Dramatics Captain and the Student-in-Charge of the Psychology Club at School. I’m also the Senior Editor of the Doon School Weekly and the Altruist. In the field of sports, you can find me either in the cricket nets, or at the basketball courts.


Moreover, my pastime hobbies include reading, writing, or procrastinating on a deadline, which in most of the cases, does not work out quite well. Regardless, my goal is to create an engaging and memorable experience for all delegates!
