(AbsoluteNews.com) – In 2018, French reporters tried to enter the city of Ozersk, Russia without a permit. The journalists were fined for their attempt and sent back to Moscow. But what was the big deal?
The city is closed off from the outside world because it’s where the Soviet nuclear program started. More than 80,000 people live in the town dubbed the “graveyard of the Earth.” It has a lake that’s reportedly more radioactive than Chernobyl, and people refer to it as the “lake of death.”
Ozersk, codenamed "City 40" was the center of Soviet plutonium production and was partially modeled on the Hanford Site. Visit this secret city of the Soviet Union w/ @theguardian https://t.co/jeGi25UBh5

There is a documentary about the city, and the film looks terrifying.
Journalists who have investigated what’s going on in the city say the amount of radioactive waste dumped in the area is equal to four Chernobyl explosions. And what’s worse, is that the waste might have made it into the Arctic Ocean. The people who live in the city don’t want to leave, and it doesn’t look like Russia will do anything to clean up the disaster it created.
