Apparently the works stopped in December. I suppose because of weather conditions. Can anyone confirm?

I hope this project doesn't get caught up in the political turmoil engulfing the rest of Ukraine.

Amazing how the USSR can still have such a mark on this world 23 years after its collapse.

There are no plan (nor need) to remove any more chimney at the site. The one that is close to the sarcophagus was added in 2011 to replace the recently dismantled ventilation stack.
