Bizarre animals left behind, tortured liquidators, deadly radiation, abandoned babies, and radioactive reindeer... Dark5 presents 5 nightmare fuel photos from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
Chernobyl or Chornobyl is a city in the restricted Chernobyl Exclusion Zone situated in Ivankiv Raion of northern Kiev Oblast, Ukraine near the border with Belarus. The city was the administrative center of Chernobyl Raion from 1923 until it was disestablished in 1988. The city currently has 704 inhabitants.
The city was evacuated in 1986 due to the Chernobyl disaster at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, located 14.5 kilometres north-northwest, the most disastrous single nuclear event in history. The power plant was within Chernobyl Raion, but the city was not the residence of the power plant workers. When the power plant was under construction, Pripyat, a city larger and closer to the power plant, had been built as home for the power plant workers. (source : wikipedia)
