The public chamber of the Russian Federation has not received complaints to deterioration of health of Russians in connection with the increase in the atmosphere concentration of a radioactive isotope ruthenium-106, but is monitoring the situation, said Tuesday RIA Novosti member of the Commission OP of the Russian Federation on ecology and environmental protection of the Russian Federation Felix gentry.

«We are closely monitoring the situation, the Public chamber of the Russian Federation we are willing to write the necessary queries that we had information online. We are in touch with the emergencies Ministry, which monitors the situation. Complaints from citizens about a deterioration of health, we have not received, but we have our finger on the pulse,» said gentry.

As previously reported, the German office for radiation protection, September 29 — October 3, found in Europe in air samples from Austria and Germany, traces of radioactive ruthenium-106 for population concentration. The office suggested that the source is allegedly in Russia, the southern Urals, while not specifying on the basis of which to make such conclusions. The laboratory of Russian regions said they did not record the last time the air content of ruthenium-106.

Later, the latter reported that extreme air pollution radioactive isotope ruthenium-106 has been observed in late September in the southern Urals, high pollution in Tatarstan, the Volga region and Rostov-on-don. In samples of radioactive aerosols from the observation points Argayash and Novogornyy the content of ruthenium was higher than the background in the previous month and 986 440 times, which corresponds to the level of «extreme pollution». However, this level is thousands of times less than maximum permissible concentration.

Ruthenium-106 is used as a radiation source in cancer therapy. Rarely ruthenium-106 is used in radioisotope thermoelectric generators, which are used in power supply satellites. A substance can also occur in the processing of nuclear fuel elements.
