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.
