Caption: Nuclear waste storage ships. The Volodarsky (left) and Lepse, two ships used for storing nuclear waste. Ageing freighters like these are largely used to store reactors from decommissioned nuclear submarines. Ships like this can only be a short- term solution to the disposal of nuclear waste which can remain radioactive for tens of thousands of years. Photographed in Murmansk, nothern Russia.
