The residents of Norilsk in Siberia were surprised to wake up one morning and discover that the waters of the Daldykan River that runs near their homes was painted red. Most residents believe that the chilling phenomenon is the result of contamination originating in one of the factories nearby but others think that the “river of blood” is a “sign from god of the imminent war.”

The eerie color of the river was first discovered and documented on a stretch of river near a metal fusion plant owned by Norilsk Nickel, a Russian company which is the world’s largest producer of nickel and palladium. The residents of Norilsk fear that the color could now spread and contaminate further water sources in the area.

The remote city of Norilsk is located deep within the Arctic Circle and more than a quarter of its 210 thousand residents work at the Norilsk Nickel plant. Local authorities have launched an investigation into the circumstances that led to the river’s contamination and activity at the plant has been reduced for the time being.
