Twenty years ago today, the most disastrous nuclear power accident in history occurred in Chernobyl, Ukraine, exposing humans to toxic levels of radioactivity. The aftermath can be seen in residents both near and far. In this gallery, Russian-born photographer Gueorgui Pinkhassov shows the human and environmental costs of the tragedy.

CHERNOBYL, Ukraine — Workers arrive at the train station next to the nuclear power station, 2000. They have come from the town of Slavutych, which was built for them after Chernobyl became contaminated. Security is extremely tight at the station.
