Chilling Drone Footage From Ukraine's Radioactive Ghost Town

Chilling Drone Footage From Ukraine's Radioactive Ghost Town

The 1,000-square-mile exclusion zone in Chernobyl, Ukraine (established in the wake of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster) has been virtually devoid of any human activity since 1986.

That was until daring filmmaker Danny Cooke, venture into the abandoned city of Pripyat home of the disused nuclear power plant itself.

Chernobyl is one of the most interesting and dangerous places I’ve been. There was something serene, yet highly disturbing about this place. Time has stood still and there are memories of past happenings floating all around.

Wisely, along with taking precautions to prevent radioactive poisoning, Cooke let his drone record and document the area from up high, naming the project 'Postcards from Pripyat, Chernobyl'.

The aerial footage is unquestionably chilling, showcasing a desolate city ruined by man's mistake yet slowly reclaimed by the forces of nature.
