Russian Video: A Documentary from Pripyat (Marking 25 years since Chernobyl catastrophe)

Twenty-five years have passed since the Chernobyl disaster… But people still remember the tragedy. Aleksey Yaroshevsky – correspondent of Russia Today visited Pripyat (nearest city to Chernobyl). Let’s watch his documentary!

The evacuation of Pripyat happened very rapidly – it took only 3 hours to evacuate the whole city. People was told to only take the bare necessities, as the authorities said it would only last about three days. As a result, most of the residents left behind their personal belongings, which are still there to this day…

Pripyat (Chernobyl) in 1970s – Soviet Documentary Video!

26th of April we remember the day of Chernobyl disaster. Pripyat – a city what was founded in 1970 to house the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant workers. Now it’s dead city.

Today we are watching a parts of Soviet documentary videos made in 1970s about this great city of Soviet Atomic Power…

The song accompany this videos “We’ll understand later”:

The beam of crystal utensils blinds eyes,
carpets weigh on walls
We frequently remember the price of any things,
but we don’t remember about invaluable.

We’ll understand later, we’ll understand later,
having wandered over world a lot,
how much dear for us the things,
which fortunately haven’t the price.
We’ll understand later, we’ll understand later

The river runs far somewhere,
the stars captivate in height
About a rain, about a snow, about clouds
nobody will ask: how many costs?

We’ll understand later, we’ll understand later,
having wandered over world a lot,
how much dear for us the things,
which fortunately haven’t the price.
We’ll understand later, we’ll understand later

How it is good that to singing birds,
to a grass and to these spring dews,
to a dawn and to light of summer lightnings
the label with the price was not been attached…

We’ll understand later, we’ll understand later,
having wandered over world a lot,
how much dear for us the things,
which fortunately haven’t the price.
We’ll understand later, we’ll understand later

We accept everything in the life,
We laugh, joy, we cry
And how conscience? How honour?
Really we shall appoint the price to them too?

We’ll understand later, we’ll understand later,
having wandered over world a lot,
how much dear for us the things,
which fortunately haven’t the price.
We’ll understand later, we’ll understand later
