Pictures of a vehicle graveyard. All vehicles were exposed to massive amounts of radiation during the Chernobyl crisis.

The Chernobyl crisis happened in 1986, and as you can see, all of those vehicles and helicopters have been looted until only a shell remains. I doubt that the levels of radioactivity are so high that it would be dangerous to walk around and take a look at history in the flesh.

You would be surprised at the still extremely high levels of radioactivity that would be found there....

I wouldn't be surprised if our corrupt officials haven't already acquired some of those vehicles for our army. :( There already was a report about a building in northern Serbia that was found to be radioactive, because the materials were imported from Ukraine :(

Like it wasn't enough that NATO threw massive ammounts of depleted Uranium on my country, and that the number of cancer patients increased five fold since 1999. :mad

Agreed. :mad

Cancer/leukemia patience have dramatically risen throughtout Central Eastern Europe especially ever since the accident. The ammount of children born with cancer really is heart breaking..... :rage

This may not be the place for this post and I am sorry if it is not . My husband is on a forum of motorcycle riders and they posted some pics of a lady that went back to chernobyl and now rides her bike there(see below lol) it has some pics some of the same as above too I think. You have to look at the bottom and click next page (I say that cause I got lost there for a minute lol)

apparently the 25-year-old daughter of a physicist
from Chernobyl, who was seven when they were forced
to flee the city, has taken up motorcycles as a hobby
& returned to the city, mainly because it's a great
place to drive fast--because it's empty. she took
some interesting photos.

check them out if you have a chance.

What a dump. Perhaps most of those vehicles should be processed for scrap-metalling. Compare this to a Tank Graveyard.
