Video: Chernobyl-Affected Areas in Belarus

I just stumbled upon a new video/news report by Tessa Parry-Wingfield (Al Jazeera) about Chernobyl-affected areas.

What makes this video unique is that it features Karpavichi, an abandoned village in the contaminated areas of southern Belarus, approximately 60 km from the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant. Karpavichi used to have 62 houses and was home to approximately 190 people.

The video also features samosel Adam Nikidich, who has returned to his home in the village of Belli Bara. Adam survives on food from passing trucks, fishing and vegetables he grows himself.

Weird. Given AJ's huge financing and sky-high positions in viewer ratings, i expected a little more from them than an inhouse report of under 2 minutes long...

мда... кто бы мог подумать
