Exclusive: Chernobyl's New Containment Shield

  • RFE/RL

Engineers are getting ready to move a 31,000-ton steel structure into place over the destroyed reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The covering will contain both the reactor and the crumbling sarcophagus built quickly after the 1986 disaster. RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service was given exclusive access to sites inside the contaminated nuclear plant.
