Russian Instagramers Flock To a Toxic Power Plant’s Ash Dump Because Water Looks Like Maldives

{10 Comments}

Recently we featured Instagram Influencers In Chernobyl. Now we encourage you to Search the “ТЭЦ-5” location tag on Instagram, and you’ll be overwhelmed with picturesque shots of bright blue water, couples taking their wedding photos, yoga poses and even a few people swimming in it. But the “Novosibirsk Maldives” isn’t a luxurious oasis, it’s actually a chemical waste dump in Russia. Responding to these selfies, the Russian power company that runs the plant urged people not to go near the water, because it’s heavily contaminated.

    Some Russian instagramers are skankier than others.

    I sure hope that one of the women paddling in the lake is not pregnant. The things people do to have attention…

    • just asking July 17, 2019

      Which one?

    • What difference does it make? Wodka or toxins. Russians are born with half a brain anyway.

    do people really still use instagram?
    Whats the point of looking at pictures endlessly?

    I used it for about 2 years .. posted a lot of stuff, god lots of feedback. Found this and that interesting, watched friends.. but that’s about it. It was pointless and unproductive. I found more information I wanted in simply reading sources or at the very least – youtube.
    Never went back there, assumed Instagram is already dying, because of younger exchange tools, like that Toki or whatever where children make music vids (basically Vine plus )
