Check on the plant «Mayak» in the Chelyabinsk region have shown that leakage of ruthenium was not there, told journalists the Deputy head of the Federal service for ecological, technological and nuclear supervision Alexander Rybas.

Earlier, the press service of Rostekhnadzor briefed that the Agency found no violations at the enterprise of Rosatom state Corporation «the beacon» (Ozersk, Chelyabinsk region), which could cause an increase in the atmosphere concentration of a radioactive isotope ruthenium-106.

«Test conducted, the results show that there is no leakage at the plant «Mayak» was not, Roshydromet says that if there is no danger, then that to understand, the highest radioactivity level was in Romania,» said Rybas.

He explained that the suspicions on the «lighthouse» fell in connection with the publication in the European press. «Suspicion was on the «lighthouse», European media said that it was somewhere in the Northern Urals, was agreed to check, no evidence that there was a leak, no,» said Rybas.

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, in the Urals, without specifying on what basis the conclusions.

Rosatom said that the objects of the Russian nuclear industry, one of which is «beacon», there was no incidents and accidents, which could cause an increase in the level of radioactive isotope in the atmosphere. Roshydromet, in turn, reported that the presence of traces of ruthenium-106 was also observed in samples in several European countries — Romania concentrations exceeded the Russian concentration 1.5-2 times, in Poland and Italy, concentrations were at the Russian level.

However, as stressed in service, the levels of ruthenium-106 was several orders of magnitude below the permissible volume activity, established by the Russian radiation safety standards and posed no danger to the population.
