About 40 countries, including Russia, reported about the absence in their territory of nuclear incidents, which could lead to increased background radiation in Northern Europe. This was announced by the International atomic energy Agency (IAEA), reports TASS.
As noted, at present already 37 countries in the European region informed the organization that their territory has not occurred any event that could trigger a jump of the radiation over the Baltic sea. The States voluntarily gave the IAEA data on their dimensions.
Thus, stated in the IAEA, until the discovery of elevated levels of radioactive isotopes reported by only three countries: Sweden, Finland and Estonia.
June 29, press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov also said that there are no alerts about the increased radiation background in the Northern borders of Russia is not received.
Earlier it was reported that the sensors of radiation monitoring in Norway, Finland and Sweden registered in early June, exceeding the level of radioactive substances at the Northern borders of Russia. Media quoted the report of the National Institute of health and environment of the Netherlands (RIVM) that the radionuclides came from the West of Russia.
RIVM later denied media reports that the source of the increase of background radiation in Northern Europe was Russia. In the Institute organization noted that at this stage, we cannot determine the specific country of source. However, the organization claims that the radionuclides could still come to Europe from Western Russia. The scientists also suggested that journalists mistranslated posted earlier information about the contamination.
In Roshydromet said that excess levels of radioactive particles in the Baltic sea area is not detected. In “Rosenergoatom” also said that accidents at nuclear power plants of the North-West of Russia in June were not recorded emissions at the stations did not exceed control values.
