    Road to Чернобыль



    You can clearly see this sign has been changed from Russian Чернобыль to Ukrainian Чорнобиль. You can see the O is newer, and you can see they took the loop of then Ь in Ы then conected the two l l to make И.

    But I was wondering if the actual aign has been changed, or someone photoshopped it.

    hard to say, but you notice that the two Os are different.

    The topic heading is wrong. It was never spelled with a ё. acourse, if some Russian proves me wrong, I'll gladly delete this paragraph.

    Too bad they didn't photoshop that guy out of the picture. =[:^0

    You can see the radioactivity working already! You got to be radioactively charged in order to wear such a gastly tie!!!

    There's nothing ghastly about his tie. Have you been drinking?

    It's not gastly it's just dated. What do you expect, he's been standing there since the 80s...

    Not only they are different, but you can see that the background around the first O and И is of a different color. It looks like E and Ы were painted over. And I don't think this is a Photoshop job.

    You are right, the E in "Чернобыль" is a real, honest-to-god E and not Ё.

    Most probably, the actual sign was changed. Why not?
    It's amazing, how the politics of "total ukrainization" is unafraid of everything, including radioactivity.

    I like how they couldn't be bothered to change the whole sign and just changed the two letters.

    I wonder if they added the apostrophe to the sign to Припять....

    Also the radiation seems to have caused his legs to buckle and twist.
