"Greenpeace": radiation level in Severodvinsk exceeded tenfold

The Greenpeace announced the excess of radiation levels in Severodvinsk tenfold.

According to information provided by the Greenpeace organization, in Severodvinsk there is a significant excess of radiation background, which poses a danger to Russian citizens. At the moment, according to the organization, radiation background normal for the region exceeded 20 times (2 μSv / h).

It is known that the Greenpeace organization sent an official request to Rospotrebnadzor, however, no official response was received within the established time frame.

“Rospotrebnadzor did not respond within the statutory period to a request from the Russian branch of Greenpeace to change the procedure for informing citizens about air pollution. In this regard, Greenpeace asks the Prosecutor General to conduct an audit and take prosecutorial response measures. "Rospotrebnadzor" has standards that oblige people to be informed about air pollution, however, they do not indicate in what format and volume it should be done. ", - said on the site "Greenpeace».

On the other hand, RFNC-VNIIEF employees who monitor the situation in the region stated that the radiation level was initially exceeded only 2 times, while, according to the Russian Emergencies Ministry, the radiation level was three times higher.

According to unconfirmed reports, the explosion in Nenoks occurred while testing the power plant of the Zircon hypersonic missile.
