In Northern Europe, they discovered an increase in the level of radiation and announced a "possible source in Russia"

78

Sensors installed in Norway, Finland and Sweden that record the level of radiation, noted its excess. The background has increased slightly, but the very fact of such growth may be a sign of a leak of radioactive substances, as they say in Europe.


About it пишет Norwegian edition of The Barents Observer.

At the beginning of the month, iodine-131 was discovered in Norway, not far from the Russian Kola Peninsula. Soon after, sensors in Sweden and Finland detected the presence of cesium, ruthenium and cobalt radionuclides.

The Dutch National Institute of Health and the Environment suggested that the source of infection may be located in the northwestern territories of Russia. They assume that the leak occurred as a result of possible damage to the fuel cell of a nuclear power plant. It is noted that the increase in radiation levels is insignificant and does not threaten the life and health of people.

Lassina Zerbo, head of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), has published a map of the territory where the source of the radioactive contamination may be located. It includes the Baltic Sea, the countries of Northern Europe and the northwestern part of the Russian Federation in the St. Petersburg region.

The Rosenergoatom Concern declares that in June there were no accidents at the Leningrad and Kola nuclear power plants. The level of harmful emissions at nuclear power plants also did not exceed the norm.

In addition: it became known that the nuclear reactor Fessenheim, which is already 43 years old since the start of operation, will cease operation in France next Tuesday.

      So what? It all depends on the wind rose. The ashes of the fire can rise high enough, and fall with precipitation for several hundred km. True, it will not be able to greatly affect the level of radiation. But you can find isotopes with large pp. And the level that is in the picture ... easily reachable on a sandy beach in sunny weather .. up to 80 microns, and next to granite and up to 200 ..
      Green somehow need to be reminded of themselves .., you just need to look at the media theirs, what is now in the mainstream ... and why this article.

    No, "at a given level of radiation" "fires in the exclusion zone in Ukraine affect" can notbecause The article states that:
    Earlier this month, iodine-131 was discovered in Norway, not far from the Russian Kola Peninsula.
    For I-131 half life: 8.0252 days.
    As soon as Iodine is massively fixed (and it is all short-lived, except stable), it means that transuranides have recently and not very far disintegrated (the other options, as far as I know, are extremely exotic and almost invisible).

    Some information on isotopes can be found here: https://periodictable.com/Isotopes/053.131/index.dm.html

      for the iodine isotope ..... the background increases when the reactors are restarted, insignificantly .... and when there is a nuclear or thermonuclear detonation ... then lithium and strontium isotopes should be recorded, that is. they overloaded the fuel themselves and what appeared to be .... and the dump of the info-wash in the Russian Federation is already part of the usual practice .... the question is different ... when to start at the top, start specifically to strain these shags

      Russia is the leading country in the world in the processing of nuclear waste and the production of nuclear fuel. Naturally, nuclear waste from other countries is brought to Russia for reprocessing, which Russia does much better than any other country in the world. We are making big money in this high-tech work. No environmental pollution by nuclear waste occurs.
      Any person requiring a ban on the import of nuclear waste into the Russian Federation is simply an enemy of our people.

    It’s just that the level of stupidity has been going off scale for a long time, practically no one knows that because of the Earth’s rotation from East to West, the air masses “move” from West to East, how they move ... they just stand there, and the Earth glides in this shell.
    Additionally, to debunk another nonsense, it is enough to take a summary of the movement of air masses in this region over the last couple of weeks, and see what, where and where it was moving.
    But who needs it, because for a hype and a scream, a sufficiently large shovel and a rotating fan.

    Of course, Russia is an ejection of ruthenium discovered near the Mayak plant and spread by wind throughout the western part of the Russian Federation and Europe, the high Russian commission called the destruction of a satellite with an isotopic power source.
    And the rabbits in the district died of turning for 5 days (out of 10, 9 died - everyone's blood went throat) - probably a coincidence ...
    True, no one found a satellite, so the arguments of such commissions from the Russian Federation do not deserve the slightest confidence.

        Under pressure from Germany and local environmental organizations, France was forced to postpone the construction of six new generation nuclear reactors for two years. At the same time, Paris will consider the possibility of switching to alternative energy sources. This was reported by Minister for the Environment Elizabeth Bourne. According to her, the final decision will be made after the commissioning of nine new-generation reactors under construction in French Flamanville. This means that various groups of influence managed to disrupt (or at least slow down) the initiative of French President Emmanuel Macron to revive nuclear energy in the country.

    I am not special in nuclear energy, but it seems like all the radioactive drugs created artificially have their own unique "cast" by which it is possible to determine at which enterprise this drug was created. At least Americans back in the 60s calmly determined from which “box” producing weapons-grade plutonium, there was a specific radioactive sample. Or does this not work for all chemical elements? ..

      If, for example, you managed to get a piece of plutonium, for example (even if it’s very tiny), then yes, can! You can determine the technology by which it was obtained and with some probability calculate the company that uses this technology (there are not many) ..... To accurately calculate which one - necessary have samples with EVERYTHING such an enterprise! Otherwise, it will be like the forensics: there are fingerprints, but they are not in the database and to whom they belong is unknown .....
      Even worse, when dealing with soil samples (especially in Scandinavia, where since the 50s, the products of our and American nuclear tests, Chernobyl and God knows what else were strewed) and all this overlaps, plus plus the background is insignificant (meaning the material sought - minuscule) - here it’s quite a “pipe” - the devil himself will “break his leg”!

    At the beginning of the month, iodine-131 was discovered in Norway, not far from the Russian Kola Peninsula. Soon after, sensors in Sweden and Finland detected the presence of cesium, ruthenium and cobalt radionuclides.

    During my service, the senior comrades feared that the result of the nuclear submarine accident:
    K-278 Komsomolets is a Soviet nuclear submarine (NPS) of the 3 generation, the only boat of the 685 project “Fin”.
    The boat holds an absolute record for diving depth among submarines - 1027 meters (August 4, 1985). Sank in the Norwegian Sea as a result of a fire on April 7, 1989.

    may occur in the future. Isn't she?

    If there had been a leak, then the Western media would have screamed like victims!

      If not with us, and ours will be silent - it will shout. For it is necessary to map the wind rose at high altitude, for the possibility of using dirty bombs.

    sensors in Sweden and Finland recorded the presence of cesium, ruthenium and cobalt radionuclides.

    It’s possible something with the reactor, because in nuclear tests a little different cocktail

      Perhaps the source of radiation from last year’s accident near Nenoksa “thawed” (temperature increase, dust, etc.). They also said that the "nuclear battery" had exploded, and that’s the corresponding radionuclide composition.

        Nakoy need cesium with a half-life of isotopes from 30 to 3 million years? RITEG uses Strontium 90, and it does not form cesium isotopes during decay, they, like cobalt and ruthenium isotopes, are formed during a nuclear explosion, only insane Scandinavians can say that a nuclear explosion occurred in Nenox, although it may be small at all, by a couple of tons , well, someone opened the lid of the reactor to see what there ...

    Something no one in Europe squeaks about Yugoslavia in the center, which they threw out with depleted uranium.

      Depleted uranium is terrible only on TV, when extracting natural uranium 238, only those shitty masks are used as protective measures that supposedly protect us from coids, so they protect us more from coves than from U238 with a half-life of billions of years

    The Lithuanians snapped up an old TVEL and sprinkled the border with Belarus - they say that the power station has not yet been launched, and the accident has already occurred ... laughing

      Yes, they’ll take TVEL somewhere, Russia, after the Ingalinsk NPP was closed in Lithuania, raked everything from there to shine, it’s cheaper to pick it up than to leave fools with a toy

    A pocket dosimeter can show anything, anywhere, we went through the Chernobyl accident, it also included nitrate determinants from the same series, a normal ionizing radiation detector the size of a large cabinet, a sensor somewhere about half a meter in size, but it catches even a weak one induced radiation, accidentally under a neutron beam, and this pocket crap is just crap

      There are normal compact devices, but price tags from 24 thousand rubles. begin. And yes, without specials. it’s better not to use such devices - otherwise you will turn gray early laughing

    They wrote the news, showed a finger at Russia and that’s all, the guilt has been proved! Well, aren't you laughing? And this is not the first attempt to cast a shadow on the nuclear industry in Russia. And these green ones are constantly connected, which are not very green already, by the way. They make money.

      And from where, it turns out, it could blow into Scandinavia with the north-west wind. From Iceland, or what? Or Greenland?
