The construction of the Crimean Nuclear Power Plant was started many years ago, in far 1975. Then, the state spent millions of Soviet rubles on it (according to some sources, even billions). But when the plant was almost finished in 1989, it was decided to stop its construction. Why? Because the memories of the recent disaster at Chernobyl were still very fresh. Besides, a new political situation, the
views of environmentalists and many other factors played their role as well. Now this abandoned facility is included in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's most expensive nuclear reactor which remained unfinished. Imagine the scale - it had to provide the entire Crimea with electricity. Let's have a walk around its ruins and look at the process of its dismantling.
