Baba Olga is one of the dwindling population of resettlers who still live inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. I had arrived during Russian New Year and was immediately inundated with copious offers of vodka, cabbage rolls, pork, potatoes, and porridge. After previous visits to other homes of the Babas, I was already stuffed. I quickly learned to always be holding food in my hands because if I was seen without sustenance it would be projected towards me almost at ninja pace and I would be begged to consume it as though it was their last wish on earth that I not starve in their home. Despite these women being in their 80s and 90s, they were somehow able to notice things like this, and rectify them with sturdy swiftness. When I left Baba Olga, she stuffed my pockets with candy and apples until they were literally overflowing, then hugged and kissed me, rubbing her soft cheeks against mine. It is forbidden to take food out of the Exclusion Zone, but I made an exception for the candy. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ #wander #travelblogger #welltravelled #travelersnotebook #mytinyatlas #passionpassport #wanderlust #traveltheworld #sheexplores #moodygram #alphahype #alphacollective #atlasobscura #oddities #macabre #chernobyl #ukraine #chernobil #chernobylzone #exclusionzone #chornobyl #chnpp #припять #чернобыль

Potrivit a1.ro, se estimează că 7.000.000 de oameni au avut de suferit de pe urma norului radioactiv. Conform unui bilanț al morților, realizat de Union of Concerned Scientists, au existat între 4.000 și 27.000 de victime. Bilanțul estimat de Greenpeace vorbește de cifre mult mai mari – 93.000-200.000 de morți.

Cine sunt cei care au refuzat să-și părăsească locuințele după explozia de la Cernobîl

Once a month the resettlers receive grocery deliveries, but this month they were out of milk. Baba Olga was disappointed, since you cant just run to the store and grab items most of us take for granted. My guide and I decided to stop at a remote store in a village just outside of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone that evening. A diminutive shopkeeper used an abacus to count, giving me side eye as we purchase bagged milk. Straight faced young men stood outside in the minus 6 degree weather, chainsmoking under the green buzzing glow of the florescent above. No smiling, too cold. We returned to give Olga two bags of milk in the morning, and she was overjoyed. She made me chicken soup as a thank you. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ #wander #travelblogger #welltravelled #travelersnotebook #mytinyatlas #passionpassport #wanderlust #traveltheworld #sheexplores #moodygram #alphahype #alphacollective #atlasobscura #oddities #macabre #chernobyl #ukraine #chernobil #chernobylzone #exclusionzone #chornobyl #chnpp #припять #чернобыль

După ce au fost evacuați peste 100.000 de oameni, a fost declarată o zonă de excludere, pe o rază de aproximativ 20 de kilometri de la reactorul ce a explodat. Ulterior, această zonă a fost extinsă. În următoarele luni, alte 234.000 de persoane au fost evacuate. Dar au existat câțiva care nu s-au dat duși din casele lor. Aceștia au rămas în zonele de excludere de la Cernobîl și, recent, au primit vizita fotografei din Canada.

Baba Ganya has cared for her sister who has both physical and mental disabilities since their mother passed away years ago. They have been together every single day and the connection and love between them was apparent. On the day we visited, Baba Ganya made a rice porridge, and kept running out of the house to get a better cell signal because her village friends were planning a party. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣#welltravelled #travelersnotebook #mytinyatlas #passionpassport #atlasobscura #traveltheworld #sheexplores #moodygram #alphahype #alphacollective #oddities #macabre #chernobyl #ukraine #chernobil #chernobylzone #exclusionzone #chornobyl #чернобыль #pripyat #при́пять #chernobylhbo #urbanex #abandoned #urbanexplorer #urbanexplorers #urbanexplore #urbexworld #urbex #chernobylhbo

Este vorba de aproximativ 300 de neînfricați, persoane cu vârste de peste 80 de ani, pe care radiațiile extrem de periculoase nu le-au speriat. Conform sursei citate, în ciuda radiațiilor periculoase, populația din zona de excludere este în creștere. Mai multe familii s-au mutat în apropiere de Cernobîl, mulți dintre ei fugind de conflictul dintre Ucraina și Rusia.

În imaginile surprinse de Robyn Von Swank, bătrânii apar în casele lor modeste din lemn, îmbrăcați gros. În case au strictul necesar – mobilă veche, haine, veselă, alimente.

Ivan Ivanovich often comes outside to greet tour groups as his house is close to Pripyat. His wife passed away a few years ago, so he enjoys the constant stream of visitors. I told him he had beautiful eyes and he said I was beautiful as well. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣He was the last settler I spoke with on my second trip to Chernobyl. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ #wander #travelblogger #welltravelled #travelersnotebook #mytinyatlas #passionpassport #wanderlust #traveltheworld #sheexplores #moodygram #alphahype #alphacollective #oddities #macabre #chernobyl #ukraine #chernobil #chernobylzone #exclusionzone #chornobyl #chnpp #припять #чернобыль
