This is what remains of the contaminated vehicles used in the cleanup and aftermath of the chernobyl disaster. All vehicles, helicopters and machinery used in the cleanup operation where placed in fields 25km from the power plant. Over time many parts were looted. Tho in 2008 the government banned all access to the junkyard as a preventative measure and even now the assembled mass of metal still diminishes, suggesting that parts are still illegally being hauled off for sale. Despite the fact that they carry a potentially deadly level of radiation.
