Calculated data on radionuclide composition of fuel in the 4th block at the pre-accident moment have been summarized: mean values of radioactivity ratios against the radioactivity of 144Се have been estimated for a number of radionuclides. Starting from "genetic" dependence of radionuclide rations (RNR) on the level of assembly burn up the scheme of the analysis of fuel component of the fallout has been proposed. Experimental data on radionuclide composition of the fallout full particles have been analyzed which has lead to more precize RNR calculated values.
