Cemetery of Radioactive Ships in Russia's Murmansk Province

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor and drone pilot Sneba created this fascinating aerial video of a "ship cemetery" in the northern reaches of Russia.  It's situated off the Kola Peninsula in the Murmansk Oblast (province), the northernmost of the provinces on the Russian mainland and part of the Northwest Federal District.  Lying in these icy waters are dozens of nuclear-powered ships which are no longer in service but which have not been properly de-commissioned.  It's an example of how the end of the Cold War created its own set of problems.
