In this second part, we explore the inside of the buildings of Prypiat . As in most ghost town, the oddity comes form the perception that people were still living there recently, and left suddenly, and they in fact left suddenly - they were given 72 hours to leave - but this happened 22 years ago.

Prypiat (Ukrainian: При́п'ять, Pryp”jat’; Russian: При́пять, Pripjat’; or Pripyat) is an abandoned city in the Zone of alienation in northern Ukraine, Kiev Oblast, near the border with Belarus.

    Is it possible DUGA3 and HAARP are connected? Look into works of Dr. Nick Begich, laymaninstitute.org and "Angels Don't Play This HAARP"
