I think that this area could be classed as a lost civilisation. I don't think there is any point to this post apart from letting people see what has happend in that area of the world.

The English is a bit rusty on this site as it is writen by someone in Russia but...persevere.

this had instantly depressed me..i had a dream similar to the photos shown on the website, but instead of Chenyboyl(sp?) it was London!

I think that this type of story (with pictures) has the ability to sober anyone up.

In particular the elevated shot of the new (30 years old) town completely deserted is an unreal, almost surreal, thing to behold.

truely a sad sad situation.

Those pictures are very surreal to me, my first thought was this could never really happen, but it did.

Looking at all of those pictures reminded me of the movie, 28 Days Later.

wow, very creepy. maybe a foreshadowing of things to come??? i've read some stuff that says it was not an accident a but an experiment designed to study the affects of nuclear fallout.... the u.s. govt conducts experiments on its population.....
here's a quote from an article....not written well, but a interesting read...

"The immediate cause of the desaster was an alleged experiment to use, for internal requirements, the current of the turbogenerator coming to a stop. First of all in general it is astonishing that such a reactor fully equipped with radioactive fuel rods is said to be used by its crew as a simple "test object", normally for experiments of that kind test devices are being used for the first time. The report puts the entire blame on the personnel, on its thoughtlessness. On the other hand it can be seen from the report itself that the experiment was directed by a person who was not a specialist for reactors, but only a "ordinary electrical engineer". He apparently gave his directives to the present operating crew. It reads for example:

"The operators attempted manually to sustain the main parameters of the system - steam pressure and the water level in the drum separators - but they did not entirely succeed in doing so. At this stage they saw the steam pressure in the drum separators sag by 0.5-0.6 MPa and the water level drop below the emergency mark. In order to avoid shutting down the reactor in such conditions, the staff blocked the emergency protection signals relating to these parameters. At the same time, the reactivity continued to drop slowly. At 1:22:30, the operator saw from a printout of the fast reactivity evaluation program that the available excess reactivity had reached a level requiring immediate shutdown of the reactor. Nevertheless, the staff were not stopped by this and began with the experiments." (p. 16/17) 1| "


just something to think about.....................
