Chernobyl and Eastern Europe: About  

About This Site

Chernobyl and Eastern Europe began as a simple blog on the Blogger network in August 2006.  I enjoyed maintaining the site, but its pure blog format limited the type of content I could post.  The platform was much too limiting for my vision, so after careful consideration, I decided to start the chernobylee.com domain and create this website.

The blog will remain an important section of this site, but will be only part of a greater whole   I hope this site will become a good reference source for all things related to Chernobyl and Eastern Europe.  In the future, I hope to add topic information, photos, essays, general information, FAQs, etc. to the site.

Specific topics will hopefully include, but not be limited to:

Chernobyl
  • Accident
  • Chernobyl Atomic Energy Station
  • Chernobyl Exclusion Zone
  • Pripyat
  • Villages
  • Samosels (People who moved back to their homes in the Zone)
  • Chernobyl-2 Radar Installation
  • Monuments

Eastern Europe
  • General News Items
  • Energy (nuclear, fossil fuels, alternative sources, etc.)
  • Politics
