More than 40 countries have informed the IAEA that has not fixed emission of radiation

More than 40 countries have informed the International atomic energy Agency (IAEA) that in their territory there were no events that could lead to an increased concentration of radioisotopes in the air, follows from a press release on the website of the IAEA.

"By Tuesday night a total of 37 participating countries in the European region (Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Northern Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Republic of Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and United Kingdom) ... told the IAEA that their territory was not of events that could lead to the release," - said in a press release. These countries also provided information on the results of own measurements.

Another seven countries to which the IAEA did not apply - Algeria, Georgia, Kuwait, Morocco, Tajikistan, United Arab Emirates and the USA also provided information about their measurements and stated that their territory was not of events that could lead to the release.

"With the exception of Estonia, Finland and Sweden, none of the other countries which still provided the IAEA with information and data that is not said, that there were elevated levels of radioisotopes", - informs the IAEA.

Earlier the IAEA said that a small increase in concentrations of radioactive isotopes in the atmosphere over the territory of Northern Europe poses no danger to human health and the environment.

At the end of last week, some media reported that in early June, 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. It was also reported that, according to calculations by the National institutes of health and the environment (RIVM) of the Netherlands, these isotopes allegedly received from Russia, and that the cause of the incident may be the depressurization of the fuel element in a reactor of any nuclear power plant.

As stated on Monday, the press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, no alerts about threats or emergencies that could cause an increase in radiation levels in Russia, there was no system of monitoring radiation safety in Russia is perfect.
