Chernobyl Unit 4, November 2016 » dscf4765_v1

Once a smoking place, but now smoking is prohibited in Unit 4.

The short western hall at the end of the Unit 4 deaerator building was once a “place for smoking”, per the red signage. A new sign has been posted, instructing workers that “smoking in the Object Shelter is PROHIBITED!” (Clearly the prohibition is widely ridiculed, as cigarette butts are everywhere in the Unit 4 control room.) Closer inspection of the sign reveals sarcastic additions, including a “penalty-100 Hryvnia” (about $5) modified to read “$1000000.”
