The city’s name Chernobyl is the same as a local Ukrainian name for Artemisia vulgaris, mugwort or common wormwood, which is “чорнобиль” ukr. or “chornobyl”.

“And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.” — The Holy Bible. Rev 8:10-11

“A barbed wire is just 50 meters from my house. There is an Exclusion Zone. There you can see a road. Patrol guards the Zone 24 hours, but we still go there to the forest to pick up mushrooms or berries. We live here and can go anywhere we want. We have nothing to fear.” — Gubin village. 1 km from the Zone
