The city in Krasnoyarsk Krai, known for the Norilsk Nickel enterprise, is in the lead not the first year in a rating of the dirtiest cities as Russia, and world. According to Bleksmit's Institute, Norilsk – one of the most polluted places on the planet. As approves Rosstat, last year Norilsk became the dirtiest city of Russia.
In that recognized this city as one of the dirtiest on the planet, there is nothing surprising, - Elena Krasnaturova, the inhabitant of Norilsk speaks. - All locals know it. From where the wind wouldn't blow, in the city it is permanently difficult to breathe. It is especially intolerable when blows from nickel plant: in a throat at once starts tickling, in language smack of metal is felt, and in eyes as though to sand filled. Above the city there is a terrible smog. We in kindergarten and school were tried to be secured somehow: gave any vitamins, doctors constantly examined. But I don't know as far as it helped. The vast majority of my schoolmates left the city long ago. I too so would make if is where to go. It is impossible to live here long: doctors speak - the organism is so reconstructed that then it is very difficult to it to work in normal conditions. My mother has a girlfriend who lived in the city more than 20 years, moved to Mineralnye Vody. And there I died in a couple of years.
