Sensors of radiation monitoring in Norway, Finland and Sweden have registered the excess levels of radioactive substances. It is reported by The Barents Observer.
In early June, Norwegian observers near the border with Russia’s Kola Peninsula revealed iodine-131. Later, experts from Finland and Sweden found cesium-134, cesium-137, cobalt-60 and ruthenium-103.
Clarifies that the emissions are extremely small and pose no danger to people and the environment.
National Institute of health and environment of the Netherlands came to the conclusion that the radionuclides came from the West of Russia. A possible reason for the release of scientists called the damage to the fuel element in nuclear power plants.
Later in Roshydromet said the Agency “Interfax” that exceed the level of radioactive particles in the Baltic sea area is not detected. The dose rate of gamma radiation at stations located in the Baltic sea, does not exceed 1,11-1,15 mSv/h, which corresponds to the norm.
In “Rosenergoatom” also reacted to the message. They said that accident (damage to reactor equipment, primary circuit, fuel channels or fuel assemblies) for nuclear power plant North-West of Russia in June were not recorded emissions at the stations did not exceed control values.
