Entry to the closed town of Ozersk (Озёрск) in Russia. (Plutonium reprocessing)

I took these photos of the entry to Ozersk (Озёрск) in Russia. This is a closed town where residents need a specific town passport to enter. It is the home of where plutonium was first processed in Russia for the atomic bomb. Now the town’s industry is plutonium reprocessing.

The turnoff to the town.
