Buryakovka machinery graveyard, Chernobyl
Buryakivka is the last cemetery of radioactive equipment left after the liquidation of consequences of the Chernobyl accident. The cemetery is located in the Ivankivsky district of the Kiev region near the village Buryakivka.

Previously, there was another cemetery of Rassokha, which was visited by many fans of post-apocalyptic items. At this location there was a technique costed in total 48 million dollars. But, in view of the fact that the equipment was very contaminated with radioactive nuclides, the cemetery was completely transported at the Vektor plant and reburied and utilized. Some of the equipment was looted by the locals.

The cemeteries of the equipment that served during the liquidation of the consequences of the accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant were cult places to visit. Armored personnel carriers, engineering machines for defenses, trucks, excavators, motorcycles, ambulances, fire trucks and other equipment are still unsettled in the territory of the Buryakivka cemetery and look very ominous.
