The statement about the fact that the test of Russian advanced weapons could cause increased background radiation over Northern Europe, absolutely groundless, said Last news Deputy head of the foreign Ministry Sergei Ryabkov.
at the end of last week in the media there were messages about the fact that in early summer the authorities of nuclear and radiation safety in Sweden, Norway and Finland recorded in the atmosphere over the territory of Northern Europe a slight increase in the concentrations of radioactive isotopes with so-called reactor origin. The National Institute of health and environmental factors (RIVM) of the Netherlands told that these isotopes would be As if came from Russia and that the cause of the incident has the opportunity to be depressurization of the fuel element in a reactor of any nuclear power plant.
"I, of course, have focused on these materials, but Wish to say, because It's not 1st and not last resort.

before the IAEA revealed that a small increase in the concentration of radioactive isotopes in the atmosphere over Northern Europe is not dangerous for human health and environmental factors. More than 40 countries, and Russia, said the IAEA that their territory has not been documented, events that could lead to an increased concentration of radioisotopes in the air.
As he said later, the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov, no alerts about threats or emergencies that could cause an increase in radiation levels in Russia, was not.
