This is the moment Rammstein’s lead singer flaunts safety measures and rides an empty carousel in an abandoned amusement park in the Chernobyl exclusion zone.
The German rock singer and frontman Till Lindemann, 57, posted the video from the ghost city of Pripyat in northern Ukraine, which primarily served the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant and was built in 1970.
The Pripyat amusement park was supposed to open on 1st May 1986 but the Chernobyl disaster just a few days earlier on 27th April stopped it from going ahead.

Lindemann decided to sit on the ride and asked one of his friends to record him on it, seemingly flaunting the safety measures in the exclusion zone.
The frontman can be heard whistling as he slowly spins on the roundabout.
Visitors are reportedly prevented from touching any objects in Pripyat as even now these objects contain a high level of radiation, but the German singer seemed untroubled by the warning.
Local media report that Lindemann decided to take a short trip to the north after playing a gig in the capital city of Kiev.
He recently caused controversy after releasing a provocative video dubbed ‘pornographic’ by many media reviewers for Rammstein’s 2019 single ‘Platz Eins’ (‘Number One’).
According to reports, after the raunchy video premiered, the names of the Russian women who starred in it were leaked online and they were then attacked by online trolls.
