Abstract

In Russia, it is felt that the safe operation of nuclear plants depends on the strength of the barbed wire fence surrounding the people who live nearby. Public officials living in these closed cities actually try to prevent relatives of those living permanently beyond the wire to cross it and to create petty obstacles for spouses unfortunate enough to have married someone outside one of the closed cities. Hundreds of thousands of people living in these "closed cities" are known officially as residents of "closed administrative-territorial establishments of the Federal Nuclear Energy Authority of the Russian Federation". This article analyses the human rights issues of these people living in these closed nuclear cities.
