Cemetery in Russian Village Evacuated after Chernobyl Disaster
08/04/16. Bryansk Oblast, Russia.
Victor Strelukov, an old believer, shows us the tombs of his parents in the cemetery of Svyatsk, an ancient Russian village that was evacuated after Chernobyl disaster. Radiation level in the cemetery is still very high because it hasn't ever been re-cultivated. But people never stopped visiting it.
On the eve of Chernobyl 30th anniversary, Greenpeace arranged a tour for international media to witness the ongoing consequences of the disaster in the settlements of Bryansk region heavily affected with radiation.
