Photos Of Chernobyl First Responders


These old photos posted by Alexander Strannik on his LiveJournal were taken in 1986 in Chernobyl, a few months after the infamous catastrophic nuclear incident. He was part of one of the first major clean up/reconstruction crews, but not one of the “heroes” who “by bravery or ignorance” were working directly at the site of the reactor, building a barrier (“a sarcophagus”) to prevent further explosions from releasing more radioactive particles into the atmosphere.
