    Perhaps they should take a long hard look at the molten core from close up to have some perspective.

    “…disrespecting the victims…”

    What?

    • The Good German June 12, 2019

      The author of the series criticizes those people running around there in underwear for sexy pictures because a great bunch of people died a horrible death there and afterwards.
      You may be too young to understand this.

    • They just stupid and that’s it.

    • clare elliott June 12, 2019

      you do realise thousands of people died,don’t you?…some straight away,and still happening!…and wearing the “safety suits” as fashion statements!…grotesque!

    • tens of thousands of people died a horrible death – babies and children included. Whole families wiped out. Even years later, babies born with horrible birth defects. It was almost a global catastrophe and only the extraordinary courage of the firemen, miners and other people to go into the death zone for the good of the human race stopped us all from being victims. You should google it.

      Still safer then using coal to generate electricity.

    • Anonymous June 13, 2019

      Oh, sorry, didn’t know. I don’t have google and my wikipedia is lost.

    In ten years they willall start growing a third tit…

    • Two in front and 1 in back. Strange to look at but great for dancing.

      Some comedian from ages ago

  4. Yeah. Go right for the vegetation areas and dust traps. Puhahahaha.

  5. Cool can we wall them up inside the dome

  6. Sample the vegetation. Maybe they can get Putin to taste.

    Russians are Morons

    • You can bet all the bloggers in california would do this too if they had a powerplant nearby, only they would take selfies during the meltdown while typing “WE OUT HERE!”

    • Good chance for that. The Americans were so smart to build a nuclear power plant directly above a tectonic fault line in California. Just wait for it.

    • lobsters_up_my_bottom June 14, 2019

      It doesn’t matter what religion they are. – Oh, MORONS ,sorry.

  8. Miguel the Mexican June 13, 2019

    Russians are Mexicans

  9. This is what you get, when the national sport is alcoholism.

  10. Vegas Bob June 13, 2019

    Youtube blogger “Biggs” has a video of the top 10 reasons not to move to Las Vegas. One of them was “next to a 50’s nuclear test site”.

  11. McViticus June 13, 2019

    Looks nicer than London

  12. Russians are drunk

  13. You see the picture of Seregastrange? In the back you can see the sarcophagus, this is a metal cover that has been slide above the nuclear reactor. I have been working there, we have radiation-meter with us all the times, when we got too much radiations we are sent back home to rest to stay below the limit. Depending how close you work from this sarcophagus, you can stay more than a couple of months there.
    You really think those dudes are risking cancer by taking a few pictures? Staying in Tchernobyl for 2 days and not get closer than 500m from the reactor? Stop watching Hollywood movies.

    • Stoprationalising June 13, 2019

      The point is – it’s like going to Auschwitz and posing for sexy pics. Its in very bad taste.

    • Astaroth, Esq., Infernal Attorney-At-Law June 13, 2019

      Chernobyl is hardly comparable to the Auschwitz death camp. Chernobyl was an accident. If it were forbidden to take silly sexy pictures anywhere there’d ever been tragedy and suffering, then there’d be virtually nowhere on this planet’s habitable surface where it would be okay. You can’t live your life weeping for every sparrow that falls, and it is the people who say that nobody should be happy so long as they are miserable who are the truly dysfunctional ones.

      “Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall down a manhole and die.”
      – Mel “I Personally Fought Nazis, Then Went Home to Make Jokes About Them” Brooks

    • Ironically the surroundings especialy with vegetation are more contaminated than the actual vicinity of the sarcophagus. The plants accumulate radioactive isotopes. If you stay on concrete and asphalts areas you are quite safe. But avoid the green spots.

    • @Stoprationalism, The point is the cancer risk in the title. As I explain the risk is low and even lower when you take 2 pictures and leave. You missed the point! You argument is valid, but you missed the point

    • Actually, most of the radioactive inventory of this reactor went straight into the atmosphere. The entire sarcophagus is just a nice way for Ukraine to have the world send them shitloads of money.

      Anyway, many people died shortly after the explosion back in the day, those who had to work there right away. Why such a place is seen by some fit to pose, I don’t know. But then, I don’t know why people pose at, for instance, the Auschwitz camp to have something to show on Instagram.

  14. Did they not learned that people died there? To have no respect for a sad tragedy and lives lost there is awful.

    Someone ought to invite them to take a closer look at the Elephant’s Foot for a change of scenery. Let them have it.

    • Yes, this. They should all spend a week right next to the elephant’s foot. Maybe that would bring them to their senses.

  15. Ok, disrespect…

  16. sakafiora June 18, 2019

    Cancer nominees.

  17. Mike Hunt June 26, 2019

    Hopefully they all die very soon.

  18. Disco Ton July 1, 2019

    All places on this photos are clear from radiation. But some buldings are dangerous about bad technnical condition. And in Chernoyl Zone is prohibited to be on the air with clear legs, arms, body. But, in general all this things not a way to cancer, so relax))

  19. Everyone has a right to feel offended but try not to abuse it.
