Tons of Mercury at Abandoned Plant in Kyiv

Wanna play mercuryball? Some 200 tons of mercury, a highly toxic element, can be easily found on the premises of Radikal, a defunct Soviet-era chemical plant a few minutes’ walk from Lisova Station.

Much of the mercury has already polluted the soil underneath. Meanwhile, Radikal profits from renting out plant space to local businesses. Who cares?
