Slavutych town in Chernobyl's shadow

Children walk in front of a radiation reading in front of the train station in the town of Slavutych.

Slavutych rises out of the ashes of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in April 26, 1986. People living near the disaster area were largely moved to the new city, built from scratch for the sole purpose of housing the population displaced by the nuclear accident.
