    Yevgeny Markevich is one of the few inhabitants of the Chernobyl exclusion zone. The area remains heavily contaminated, 35 years after the world’s worst nuclear disaster unfolded in April 1986. But the risk of radiation exposure has not kept the 85-year-old from living in the place he has called home since 1945.
