An even closer look at Chernobyl 4 and the concrete sarhophagus that was constructed in 1986. While it was a engineering feat in itself to get it in place then, the construction is now withering and a new sarcophagus is being constructed just a few metres to the right. The monument in the front was raised on the 20thanniversary of the sarcophagus and commemorates the people who worked on it.
