Slavutych (Ukrainian: Славутич) is a city in northern Ukraine, named after the Old Slavic name of the near-by Dnieper River. Slavutych is situated on the left bank of the river, 40km from Chernihiv and 200km from Kiev. While geographically Slavutych is located in Chernihiv Oblast, administratively it belongs to Kiev Oblast, being an administrative exclave. Image File history File links Slawutytsch_(Ukraine). ...

Overview

Construction of the town started in 1986, shortly after the disaster, and the first new inhabitants settled in during October 1988. The city was intended to replace Pripyat which became a ghost town after it was evacuated due to the nuclear fallout.

The city is mostly home to survivors of the disaster who had to be relocated from the evacuation zone around the reactor, among them about 8,000 people who were children in 1986. As a result, the number of people who have some radiation-related illness is rather high. Many inhabitants still work at the site of the former plant for monitoring, maintenance or scientific purposes. They commute to the zone on a regular basis, and a railroad line (twice crossing international border with Belarus) runs directly from the city to the site of the plant. The Zone of Alienation, which is often referred to as The Chernobyl Zone, The 30 Kilometre Zone, The Zone of Exclusion or The Fourth Zone (Ukrainian official designation: Зона відчуження Чорнобильської АЕС, zona vidchuzhennya Chornobylskoyi AES, colloquially: Чорнобильська зона, Chornobylska zona оr Четверта зона, Chetverta zona) is the 30-km exclusion zone around the...

Slavutych is located about 50 kilometres east of the former plant. In order to build the city, the ground was covered with a two-metre layer of uncontaminated soil. At the same time, compared to other cities in Ukraine, Slavutych has a modern architecture with pleasant surroundings, and the standard of living in the city is much higher than in most other cities in Ukraine. During the construction of the city, workers and architects from eight former soviet republics became involved: Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Ukraine and Russia. As a result, the city is divided into eight districts, each with its own unique style and atmosphere. All eight kindergartens are equipped with an indoor swimming pool. In addition, the city has a youth center, a modern community center, a town hall, an Internet cafe, numerous sports facilities, modern clinics, and a hotel. About 80 percent of the apartments were constructed as houses with four to six floors while the remaining 20 percent are small one- or two-family houses, some terraced and some detached. The population of the city has a uniquely high birth rate as well as surprisingly low mortality. As a result, the average age in Slavutych is by far the lowest of any city in Ukraine. More than one third of its inhabitants are children.

The infrastructure and public facilities of the city are mostly paid for by the company which operated the plant.[citation needed] Because the remaining units of the nuclear power plant were shut down in 2001, the city faces significant social problems and an uncertain future. Until then, approximately 9,000 people or about half of the adult population worked at the plant. Since the shutdown, this number has dropped to about 3,000, who mostly work on monitoring and maintenance. Also, about 85 percent of the city budget was funded by the operator of the plant. In order to support the settlement and establishment of new companies, Slavutych was declared a Special Economic Zone. In addition, substantial vocational retraining programs are provided by the government to improve the occupational outlook of those who lost jobs. Despite these efforts, about 1,500 people have already left the city, a trend which is predicted to continue for the foreseeable future. A Special Economic Zone (SEZ) is a geographical region that has economic laws different from a countrys typical economic laws. ...
