  • On the border of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, surrounded by miles of toxic desert, there is an island called Vozrozhdenija. Today "Vozrozhdenija" is one of the most iconic cities in the world! ....

     
    This "island" was once a picturesque fishing village surrounded by turquoise lagoons, when the Aral Sea was the fourth largest in the world and abounded with fish.

    But after years of abuse, water receded and the sea turned into dust, feeding rivers were redirected to irrigate cotton fields. Today is a layer of salty sand, full of carcinogenic pesticides, everything that stays from an ancient oasis and an island.
    This is the place where live thermometers regularly show 60 ° C, where the only signs of life are skeletalized densely populated trees and stones. Now Vozrozhdenija has swallowed so much that it has become ten times the original size and now the peninsula is connected with the mainland.
    But thanks to yet another Soviet project, Vozrozhdenija Island (some call it Anthrax Island) is one of the deadliest places on the planet. Since the 1970s, the island has been the site of numerous malicious events
    In 1971, a young scientist got sick after the research vessel, Lev Berg, strayed into a brown fog. A few days later she ended up at the hospital with the diagnosis of the goddesses. It was all strange for everyone because she had already been vaccinated against this disease.
    Although recovering, the epidemic continued and another nine people were infected in her hometown, three of whom died. One of them was her younger brother.
    A year later, the bodies of two missing fishermen were found on their boat. They are believed to have died of the plague. Not long ago, the locals began to extract the net of dead dead fish. Nobody knows why.
    In 1988, 50,000 antelopes, which were grazing on nearby steps, died within an hour
    The island still keeps a lot of secrets, partly because it's not a place where you can show up. Since Vozrozhdenija was abandoned in the nineties, there were only several expeditions. Nick Midleton, a journalist and geographer at Oxford University, recorded a documentary in 2005.
    "I was aware of what happened, so we kept the advice of a gentleman working for the British army and came to tell us what was waiting for us. He was frantically scared of me," he says.
    That expert was Dave Butler, who eventually traveled with them."Much of this could go wrong," he told the BBC.
    As a precautionary measure, Butler made the whole team drink antibiotics, starting one week before the trip. They wore gas masks with air filters, thick rubber boots and large suits similar to those worn by forensics.Vozrozhdenija some people call it antrax islandCIA's photos from 1962 revealed that other islands had pits and fish huts, and this had guns and shacks. But it's not half the buildings. There were also research buildings, places and open-air areas.
    Vozrozhdenya Island was turned into a military base of the most dangerous type: it was an object for testing biological weapons. The project was a complete secret, and it is not even marked on Soviet maps, but people familiar with the project call it Aralsk-7.
    Over the years the city has become a nightmare, where anthrax, plague and plague in large clouds have moved above the earth, and exotic diseases like typhoid have fallen from the sky and penetrated the sandy soil.
    The island was sufficiently isolated that it was not discovered until the 19th century, making it the ideal place to hide from the curious eyes of the Western intelligence services
    It has become a warehouse of the largest stock of anthrax in human history. The poison of the poison is unclear, but it is possible that it was produced in Complex 19, a facility near the Russian city of Sverdlovsk, now Jekatarinburga.

    Aralsk-7 was part of the industrial-level biological weapons program, employing more than 50,000 people in 52 production plants throughout the Soviet Union.
    Anthrax is produced in huge containers, as if it were producing beer, not poison. In 1988, nine years after the anthrax leak in Complex 19, at least 105 people died, and the Soviets finally decided to save the supplies of poisons.
    The huge anthrax vessels were mixed with a bleach and transferred to the port city of Aralsk, on the shores of the Aral Sea (now 25 km from the coast), where they were placed on ships and unloaded in Vozrozhdenija. Approximately 100 to 200 tons of anthrax was soon thrown into the pit and forgotten.
    These bacteria have the power to survive in extreme extreme conditions. It will without fail endure the standard methods of destroying bacteria from disinfection to heating at 180 ° C. When placed in the ground, they can survive for hundreds of years. On one occasion they were found during archaeological excavations in Scotland.
    Recently, a twelve-year-old boy died after the anthrax lurking in the far north of Russia overtook him. The epidemic hospitalized 72 people from the nomadic Nenets tribe, including 41 children, and thousands of deer died.


    It is thought that everything started when the heat stroke thawed the deer body 75 years old. As was the case, the efforts of the Soviet Union in Vozrozhdeniya were not enough.
    For years after the collapse of the USSR, due to the attack on Tokyo and the discovery of an extensive biological weapons program in Iraq, fears grew over the prospect of terrorists getting any toxic pathogen.
    So the US government sent teams of experts to carry out some tests
    Caves visible from the universe
    The exact location of the anthrax was never discovered, but later it turned out that it was not a problem. Caves were so huge, they were clearly visible on photographs taken from the universe. Appropriate clues were found in several soil samples, and the Americans pledged $ 6 million for a site cleaning project.
    The project included deep tunnel, plastic insulation and several tons of strong bleachers. It was only necessary to switch tons and tons of contaminated soil into the tunnel at a temperature of 50 degrees and leave it there for several days.
    Of course, the project participants had to wear protective clothing all the time. A total of 100 workers were hired, and the project lasted four months. It worked. After six days with a bleach and high temperature, traces of poisons have disappeared.
    A half-century of open-air testing has left the whole island polluted not only at the test site.
