    Well, I think the real hero’s are the people working on the ground. They are the ones trying to contain the radioactive fallout while being exposed to extremely high levels of radiation.

    Anyway, nice gallery though! :)

      There were 4 guys who took photographs: Igor Kostin (worked for Novosti), Volodymyr Repik, Valery Zufarov and Anatoly Rasskazov (Photographer working for the Chernobyl NPP). Zufarov died in 1993, Rasskazov died in 2010. Kostin is alive, but constantly ill. Don’t know about Repik, though. They all received incredible ammounts of radiation.

      They were heroes in their own way, no less than all the liquidators or the miners from around the USSR who worked in that terrible disaster.

        I am not sure that those who sent them to make pictures gave the truthful information of how dangerous it was.

        I myself remember TV reports trying to persuade Soviets that nothing serious happened. Reporter would stand in Chernobyl shortly after the accident and say into camera:

        “Nothing is wrong. Look, I am standing here without any protection and everything is fine.”

    That whole area will be stuck in 1986 for an eternity.

    Chernobyl, Fukushima and more, what’s next ?
    I live in France and we have more than 58 reactors
    Some troubles happened but ever “no risk” but we don’t know the truth each time

    In some of those photos the film is fogged from the radiation.

    Stupid know-it-all facebook comments…

    But these are not pictures of the disaster. They are pictures of the construction of the gigant casing structure. Get your facts straight!

  11. javox says:

    the reactors still workin, they cant stop it till couple of hundries of years i guess….is not that easy

  12. Dan says:

    Last I heard the structure being build in these images was eroding away and talks were going on on how to repair the structure from collapsing and allowing more radiation to leak out. But I haven’t heard anything about it in a while. Now I’m curious.
