    Kurzinhalt

    16 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Kazakhstan's population
    still suffers from the legacies of the former superpower's claim to
    greatness.

    It is here that the Communist leader, Joseph Stalin first developed and
    tested the Soviet Union's nuclear arsenal. From 1949 to 1991, the
    Soviet regime detonated over 700 nuclear bombs, with over 68 being
    detonated in one year alone. The detonation zone was supposedly a
    deserted region.

    The truth, though, was that the region home to thousands of nomadic
    Kazakh herders. And civilians became the unwitting participants in the
    Cold War's great games. Herders and their families living in the
    vicinity of the Polygon, the nuclear test site, were exposed to massive
    levels of radiation in the nuclear fall- out.
