Construction to protect Chernobyl reactor site

This video released by EBRD shows the arch that is being constructed to protect the site of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, damaged in 1986.

Upon completion in 2017, the arch will be moved into position to shelter reactor 4 from the elements.

The drone footage records progress on the building site.
