Radioactive warning signs - Ukraine
The Ukraine 2015
The story behind the photo:
Fresh painted warning signs concerning radioactive substances or ionizing radiations are ready for the distribution inside the restricted area, which was established around the site of the
wrecked reactor block of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.
In the ghost town of Pripyat there is a workshop where workers repair and renew the damaged warning signs, worn by time and weather. After repair they can be installed to indicate the most contaminated and dangerous places. A job, which, considering the rate of decay of the various radioactive substances, probably still have to be done for thousands of years.
