5 Life Goes On No Matter What

Life Goes On No Matter What

Posted on November 11, 2012 by team

The Chernobyl tragedy happened quarter of a century ago but the zone keeps living its own life.

Everyone knows that the Chernobyl reactor was located on the territory of Ukraine, however it was Belarus that suffered most from the disaster. Today we are going to visit one of the districts of this country contaminated by radionuclides.

The sign reads: “Danger of radiation! No entry!”

The tragedy happened in 1986 but life didn’t stop here.

Most of the people left, but someone refused to be resettled.

Belorussian storks refused to fly away either.

This is what’s remained from the Polish brewery. Its owners had lived here before the revolution.

The whole villages were plundered.

It reads “Industrial warehouse #14″.

These gates survived the Russian revolution, the Soviet Union, WWII, Chernobyl and numerous plunderers.

Lately they more and more speak about the revival of the Chernobyl land. Despite the scepticism of the neighbours they have already started to build new roads, farms, kolkhozes… The infrastructure is being restored, new companies are being created.

The Japanese have come here recently for adopting some experience of how to copy with the aftermath of such a catastrophe.

    “Maybe this is how our planet looked like before the invasion of humans.” Except for the water humans have transformed the flora and fauna pretty much completely (with regards to macroflora and megafauna). Humans evolved in savannas and thus have implemented savannas wherever and whenever we could.

    Wow. I’ve been to that village on Sozh while traveling through Belarus back in 98. Nothing changed, those prople are still there. Amazing.

    If you are old and cannot afford more this is good place to live. It will take at least ten year for the cancer to develop.

    Planet Earth, invaded by humans. Hahahahahahhahahaha!! As if we didn’t belong here, or some aliens. Yep, we came from another planet, just to ruin this one.
