Chernobyl today
Chernobyl was a very old town, first mentioned in official records in 1193. In 1362, it became part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. In 1569, it was given to the Polish realm, but not until after the second partition of Poland in 1793 did it fall to the Russian Tsar. In 1918, Chernobyl became part of the Soviet Union and was declared a city in 1941.

The nuclear power station, located on the edge of the Pripyat River 20km out of town, was built between 1971 and 1977 and was Ukraine’s first nuclear power plant. The first reactor became operational in 1977, generating a power output of 1 gigawatt. By 1983, the plant had been expanded to include four reactor units, generating a total of 4 gigawatts. Two further reactor units were planned for construction. Before the accident, the area that is now a ghost town was home to 18,000 inhabitants.

Since 1986, the ruptured reactor in unit 4 has been contained by a temporary sarcophagus.

This isolates the destroyed reactor with a thick mantle of steel and concrete. The sarcophagus is designed to contain the reactor’s heat and radiation, because on the inside, not much has changed since the meltdown. Of the 190 tonnes of reactor core mass, an estimated 180 tonnes are still there, in the form of dust and ash, molten and hardened fuel elements and as washed-out liquids in the reactor pit and foundation walls.

As the existing sarcophagus is not adequately protected from erosion, corrosion and earthquakes, a more resilient sarcophagus has been planned which will be built on top of the old one. In preparation for the new sarcophagus, the roof of the existing one had to be reinforced and the ventilation system improved.

Chernobyl Today: A Creepy Story told in Pictures

It took three days before all permanent residents of Chernobyl and the Zone of alienation were evacuated due to unsafe levels of radioactivity.

People from around the Soviet Union were forced to come and work here in order to liquidate the danger and evacuate the residents.

Many of the workers died or had serious illness from radiation.

My father was also recruited for this operation, but he bribed corrupt local officers with some good sausages which were rare and a valuable item at those times, so he’s fine an alive today.

Let the story be told by these magical pictures taken ~20 years later after the accident.

“After the explosion at Reactor 4 the people of Pripyat flocked on the railway bridge just outside the city to get a good view of the reactor and see what had happened.

Initially, everyone was told that radiation level was minimal and that they were safe. Little did they know that much of the radiation had been blown onto this bridge in a huge spike.”

They saw a beautiful rainbow coloured flames of the burning graphite nuclear core, whose flames were higher than the smoke stack itself. All of them are dead now – they were exposed to levels of over 500 roentgens, which is a fatal dose.

“Pripyat funfair was due to be opened on May 1st. The Chernobyl disaster happened April 26th.

No one ever managed to ride the ferries wheel. It remains one of the most irradiated parts of Pripyat since the disaster, making it still dangerous today, 25 years on.”

If you want to read real stories of Chernobyl survivors you should definitely check: Voices from Chernobyl: The Oral History of a Nuclear Disaster

“This book is a punch in the gut. There’s no nicer way to say it. It’s downright devastating.

It’s something that every single person should read
.

Even if you only know Chernobyl vaguely, two things are made painfully apparent by this book: whatever you’ve read about Chernobyl in the past has probably grossly underestimated the magnitude of the disaster; and the death and injury toll from the accident hasn’t stopped yet. Not by a long shot.
