One of the most contaminated objects in the Chernobyl Zone is the famous Claw. It was used to clear the debris around the ruined Reactor no. 4 in 1986 and later moved to the outskirts of Pripyat where it stands to this day.
Gamma + beta readings inside of it reach over 1.5mSv/h.
Sadly The Claw has been vandalised twice in the last few months. In late November 2019 a group of vandals (whom I won’t mention by name as fame is exactly what they’re after) spray painted the Claw pink. It was quickly restored to its original yellow-golden colour few stalkers spray painting it again. Shortly after the same vandals painted white stripes on the Claw.
Below I have few photos for those of you who missed the chance to see it in its full glory.
