- Chernobyl residents share the pain of Fukushima
According to the Ukrainian government, 168 villages disappeared due to the effects of the Chernobyl disaster and the wide-scale evacuations.
Notices carrying the names of those villages stand in the city's central plaza in alphabetical order. The notices were completed this spring, which marked the 25th anniversary of the accident.
The key facilities of the government organizations for such work as radiation monitoring and ecological surveys are located in the city.
As decontamination work has been intensively conducted in the city, city officials have been allowed to stay there. At present, they spend about half a month at a time in dormitories in the city.
