52 Chernobyl Yesterday and Today: The Video

Chernobyl Yesterday and Today: The Video

Posted on September 16, 2007 by

Chernobyl video

This is an amateur video of Chernobyl area today and before and during the nuclear disaster 20 years ago. We’ve had a few sets of contemporary Chernobyl like this and this but this is the first video.

Also see the strange wild animals at the end of the video – they look like horses but disproportionately big heads, looking like big-sized ponies, are they also the victims of radiation?

    This video is terrific…
    My tribute to the all the victims…


  2. Dmitry says:

    first post…

  3. grobov says:

    my brother in law was the victim: since then he became the devilish intelligent version of homer simpson – accountant;

  4. Blaize says:

    The horses are a type of wild horse, Przewalski’s Horse, that were released in the Chernobyl area after the accident. They have large heads and thick necks naturally, not because of radiation.

  5. q-rious says:


    any clues why the structural integrity of the helicopter fails and makes it crash? Due to radiation?



  6. Marc says:

    What was that song?

  7. Texas1 says:

    Boris Abramob wrote this. Not Texas 1. Texas 1 is a good Christian. Boris Abramov likes to have sex with animals.

  8. Boris Abramov says:

    Very emotional video. The music seems rather inappropriate though, and it definatlly spoiled the video for me…


  9. Polski says:

    The song is: Rob Dougan (or Rob D) – Clubbed to death..

  10. Smeg says:

    If you want to see the true horror from Chernobyl see if you can find a documentary called “Chernobyl Heart”

    It seems to be one of those documentaries that people cry about but doesn’t cause any real change, but it does let you get a feel for the conditions there.

    WARNING: It may give you nightmares.

  11. Domo says:

    Writings throughout the video:

    1. On the first house: “In this house lives its owner”
    2. Second house: “Forgive me, my good home[or house]”
    3. After the helicopter crash: A memorial to the victims of the crash, 1986.

  12. mike says:

    every second russian video uses this music from the matrix soundtrack… boring.

  13. Coligny says:

    The horse are naturally like this I think the french equivalent is percheron, strong labor horses.

    Scientifics have noticed, that animal presenting mutation because of radiation, do not breed… therefore, there is no new mutant race overlord or whatesoever. There is just a lot of overtime for Darwin. Meanwhile those that survive and breed must be some really tought mofo…

  14. ert says:

    Dumb, that animals are donkeys!

  15. Strelok says:

    Good hunting, stalkers…. ^^

  17. ocsua says:

    Does anybody know the title of this song?

  18. Anon says:

    Eh… a bit ridiculous again. There’s nothing strange about those animals, they’re perfectly normal Przewalski’s horses.

  19. Adam from Canada says:

    Excellent video, could use a tri pod but well done.

  20. Laca says:

    That is a Przewalski-wild horse and the headsize is normal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. max says:

    i thought they were steppe horses?

  22. Yuri says:

    Everyone knows that radiation only kills in high dozes and over some time. Many jumps to radiation-based mutation etc. without excluding other reasons.

  23. hy says:

    how does one actually get there? as in are there any tours to that zone?

  24. JT says:

    The horses were introduced after the incident. They are a very sturdy Asian breed, that seems to be doing well in the Zone. There are three herds of them now.

  25. just bob says:

    Can anyone explain the meter readings?
    And, yes, the helicopter hit the crane causing it to crash.

  26. Sudden says:

    This video is terrific, I loved it, thank you for puting your time in to it.

  27. spaceface says:

    Did the helicopter hit a giant horse’s head and crash into the reactor spilling radiation out and killing the pilot before he actually hit the ground at high speed. or maybe the guy in the foreground of the helicopter shot is the pilot and the helicopter crashed cos the pilot was on the ground flying it via radiation control.

    • Charlotter says:

      No, the helicopter crashed after you posted your comment, because your sense of logic caused the pilot to lose consciousness!

  28. menten says:


    what’s the name of the music from th video of tchernobyl



  29. marc says:


    what’s the name of the music from this video ?


  30. captain sensible says:

    Clubbed to death is overplayed has been passée for the last couple of years. I was turned off instantly by the use of this and the budget fades.

    If you have the time and the intelligence I would recommend the photo journels of ‘Filatova Elena Vladimirovn’ AKA ‘Gamma Girl’, AKA ‘Kidd of Speed’
