    Russia under state of emergency after mystery nuclear leak

    A state of emergency has been imposed in a Russian city due to nuclear contamination.


    The Russian authorities have not explained what is causing the alarming radiation in Khabarovsk.


    A mystery radiation source was today ‘removed and placed in a protective container’ and ‘transported to a radioactive waste storage facility’ in the city, the largest in Russia’s far east and close to the border with China.


    Yet a state of emergency is to remain for at least three more days in the Industrialny district of the city, as law enforcement agencies examine the origin of the leak.


    It appears to have taken a week for the authorities to act.

    A man wearing a nuclear protective mask is seen in darkness with a radiation reader that quickly rises as he walks over a ‘waste dump’.


    His reader sounded an alarm at 0.45 microsieverts and the highest reading visible on screen is 5.99.


    Yet on the video the man says there was a reading of 20, enough potentially to increase cancer risk, damage DNA, cause foetal damage, and threaten the health of children.

    Astonishingly, the potentially lethal radiation leak in Khabarovsk was known for around one week before action was taken on it, or the public alerted, say reports.


    A ‘boy’ who made an initial reading on 28 March had reported it to the Russian special services, yet it was only today that a state of emergency was called.


    Andrey Kolchin, head civil defence in the city, said: ‘A source of increased radiation levels was discovered….the area was cordoned.

    ‘It was decided to introduce a state of emergency in Khabarovsk to carry out work faster.’


    The authorities insisted there was no threat to life.


    ‘The radiation source was removed and placed in a protective container, transported to a radioactive waste storage facility,’ said a source at Radon nuclear agency.

    ‘There is no environmental pollution and no threat to society.’


    Khabarovsk has a population of 630,000 and is located on the Amur River.

    Do you have a link to this alleged statement?

    "Andrey Kolchin, head civil defence in the city, said: ‘A source of increased radiation levels was discovered….the area was cordoned."

    Reuters quote a nonexistent TASS news agency link.

    "TASS news agency reported on Friday."

    reuters.com

    Nothing here either:

    I'm trying to work out how much more stupid you can get.

    Surely there isn't much room for manoeuvre.

    I'm sure the Russians are trying to find some link to Ukraine.
