In winter, Chernobyl plant workers walk to the Slavutych, Ukraine, train station every morning before dawn and return home after dark. None of them know how long their jobs will continue or what the city will do once they are laid off. <br />

Original caption: .Slavutych, Ukraine, is the new city built after the Chernobyl accident for evacuees from Pripyat, the abandoned city in the Exclusion Zone. Nearly 4,000 out of the 25,000 inhabitants still work at Chernobyl today, commuting through Belarus on 3 special "elektrichka" trains that depart between 6:30 and 7:30 each morning. In the evening, the workers walk home from the train station past the Silpo supermarket..-------------------.
