“The main product of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant is the experience of decommissioning such plants.” — Sasha Kupny, Chernobyl Training Center instructor<br />
<br />
All workers pass through the Semikhody changing facility upon arrival at Chernobyl each morning. They leave their personal clothes, then cross into a second, “dirty” locker room to put on work clothes. Personnel who work in the most contaminated sections later change uniforms a second time, into protective white suits. Sasha Kupny, pictured here, is the second generation of his family to work at the plant.<br />
