Chernobyl, 30 years later, in pictures

"Our reporters are trained to look for the impact"

A fascinating story from RFE/RL.

Workers in Ukraine will soon begin the task of moving a 31,000-ton steel cover over the radioactive ruins of the Chernobyl nuclear plant. The massive structure — called the New Safe Confinement (NSC) — will seal off Chernobyl’s reactor Unit 4. In 1986, an explosion inside the reactor led to the world’s worst civilian nuclear accident. Ahead of the big move, RFE/RL was granted exclusive access to Chernobyl for a rare glimpse inside the crippled Soviet nuclear power plant.
