Here's a photo article on the folks who remain near Chernobyl on the 25th anniversary of the nuclear disaster. Be sure to full screen some of the incredible photographs. The most moving photographs, to me, feature the old folks who seem to have just toughed the entire thing out, most of their close friends and family destroyed by the fallout. They farm the land and live independently. As the writeup mentions, a small church still remains... upheld by one person. In many ways life hasn't changed in Redkovka, Ukraine - 22 miles away from the epicenter of the disaster.
