Monchegorsk is an industrial city on the Kola Peninsula, whose life is centered around a metallurgical plant. Translated from Sami Monchegorsk means a city among beautiful mountains. The city is surrounded by several hills, in the depths of which deposits of copper and Nickel ores have been discovered. In the 1930s, the construction of a factory began here, and a city began to be built around it. Now Monchegorsk plant is part of the financial giant «Norilsk Nickel». Unfortunately, people in cities like Monchegorsk don’t have many job options at hand. That’s why most of the population end up working in dangerous factories that poison the air with industrial emissions, causing several respiratory diseases such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis and even lung cancer. The government wants to keep harmful emissions a secret and people receive threats for what they want to tell about what is happening in the city.
