Belarusian deputy: Radiation in Chernobyl districts is not an obstacle for ecological tourism

The territories contaminated due to the disaster at Chernobyl nuclear power plant (Palesse State Reserve in particular) have a good prospect of development of ecological tourism. The announcement was not made by an ordinary deputy; it was made by the head of the standing commission on problems of Chernobyl catastrophe, ecology and nature management of the Belarusian Parliament Mikalai Serhienka.
According to him, the intact environment of the Prypyat’s flood-lands could attract foreigners fond of “the extreme”.

“There is some radiation but, according to our medical research, it will not affect your health if you spend a day or two in that territory”, - claimed the deputy.
