Facts About Russia You Never Knew Until Now

The Amount of Pollution

You might not realize it, but Russia is actually one of the most polluted places on Earth. Located just a few miles from a nuclear factory lies Lake Karachay – the most poisonous lakes in the world.


The factory suffers from chemical leaks that stream into the lake, causing it to glow a mysterious red color all across the year. Ultimately, it had to be paved with concrete to avoid even more pollution spreading into Russian waters.
