Vladivostok customs found radioactive car in the city of Porto. This was reported on the website of the Department.
Polluted beta-active radionuclides Toyota Prius Hybrid arrived in Russia from Japan, the pollution associated with the accident at “Fukushima-1”. The import of these machines is banned in the EEU countries, including in Russia. The car will be sent back to Japan.
Since the accident at the nuclear power plant in 2011 and to June 2017 Vladivostok customs revealed 875 similar commodities contaminated with radiation. However, Toyota became the first radioactive car imported into Russia from 2017. This suggests that the consequences of the accident is still not eliminated, said the customs.
Earlier in January it became known that around the Japanese nuclear plant was found leaking about 20 thousand liters of coolant. The cooling system of the soil under the station appeared four years ago. It keeps the groundwater from mixing with radioactive fluid used to cool the reactors.
The accident at the Japanese NPP “Fukushima-1” happened on March 11, 2011. The tsunami caused by the earthquake of a magnitude of 9.1, has failed cooling system of reactors. Because of this explosion, the destruction of the reactors and release of radioactive substances.
