As in the night of the 26th of April 1986 one of the worst ecological catastrophes of the 20th century hit the Ukrainian city Chernobyl, Maria Patrovna and Hanna Zavorotnya were living life as usual. What they did not know at this time was that their life just then drastically changed. In June 2014 I had the unique opportunity to travel into the exclusion zone of Chernobyl, to visit the former flagship city of the Soviet Union.
