Caption

Radiation monitoring near Chernobyl. An employee of the Polesye State Radiation-Ecological Preserve is using a Geiger counter to measure radiation levels in the soil and plants. He is wearing a mask and protective suit to reduce his exposure to the radiation. This is the village of Gubarevichi, in the Gomel Province of Belarus. Gomel Province is near the border with Ukraine, and was heavily affected by fallout from the Chernobyl nuclear power station following the nuclear disaster there on 26 April 1986. This area is 3 kilometres from the restricted zone. This photograph was taken on 21 April 2006, 20 years after the disaster. The village was evacuated after the disaster, but now eight families have returned to the village.
