They will then decontaminate those elements, and dispose of it. Nothing has been planned further ahead, but I highly doubt they'll want to fill everything up with concrete, since there are many easier solutions.
In decades to come, robots will do the hard work and clean up everything inside the sarcophagus. They will even build the next one.

Human creativity is amazing.

It looks like third lift just started, which is quite surprising to me, as not even half of the required steel is in place. Previous lift was just 3 months ago (there was 7 months between 1st and 2nd lift), and cladding might get a little more difficult/dangerous at those heights.

So it is now lifted to its full height? And it will hang there while they fill in the rest of the arch frames?

To be honest I'm not really sure. This was the first stage of the third lift. The second stage is scheduled for october, and then we'll see the structure reach its final height (it doesn't seem to be at it right now). I don't really know how they will work until that, but I guess it'll more or less be as you said.

By the look of it, the lifting seems to be complete as of today (it shouldn't get any higher).

According to this post from VIUR, and from what I understood (and since I don't speak a word of russian, feel free to correct me), there was an issue with the initial plan for the last arch sections, which led to the decision of lifting without them. They will be installed while the structure is lifted.

Close... He said that there was a problem with pulling arches that were resting on the ground at that time so this time they decided to lift a whole thing up, and then add arches.

The second stage of the third lift is now completed. The arch is freestanding. It has been lowered onto its supports, and cladding will go on until spring 2014. At that time, the arch will be slid east to free the space for the second half to be assembled.
