Mysterious Radiation Spike Detected Over Scandinavia

Radioactivity levels have spiked in the atmosphere over northern Europe, and that could indicate damage at a nuclear power plant in western Russia.

The radioactive spike suggests damage to a nuclear fuel element.

Meanwhile, the Russian nuclear power operator Rosenergoatom has denied problems related to facilities in Kola and Leningrad, the two nuclear plants operating in the region.

Several Scandinavian watchdog agencies detected the elevated levels of the radionuclides (or radioactive isotopes).

In particular, concentrations of the radionuclides cesium-134, cesium-137 and ruthenium-103 rose in parts of Finland, southern Scandinavia and the Arctic.

Though these pose no harm to humans, they are byproducts of nuclear fission. 

The radionuclides are artificial, that is to say they are man-made. The composition of the nuclides may indicate damage to a fuel element in a nuclear power plant,” an official with the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment in the Netherlands, which analyzed the isotope data, said on Friday (June 26).

Because so few measurements have been taken, monitoring agencies weren’t able to identify a specific source.

The sudden radioactivity spike echoes the events following the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown, the biggest nuclear disaster in history. Within a few days of the 1986 disaster, a Swedish nuclear power plant detected elevated radioactivity levels, according to an account from the European parliament.

In recent years, another radioactive mystery cloud wafting over Europe was tied to Russia. In 2017, a plume holding 1,000 times the normal levels of ruthenium-106 was detected over Europe.

  1. It is very crazy world get every day. We can not leave in Europe either? These are designed by same people made movie right at your door. Also middle east news is very bad indeed. India China Pakistan and Taiwan are all bad news as well.

    Iran issues arrest warrant for Trump, asks Interpol to help
    TEHRAN, Iran — Iran has issued an arrest warrant and asked Interpol for help in detaining President Donald Trump and dozens of others it believes carried out the U.S. drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad, a local prosecutor reportedly said Monday.

    While Trump faces no danger of arrest, the charges underscore the heightened tensions between Iran and the United States since Trump unilaterally withdrew America from Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers.

    Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said Trump and more than 30 others whom Iran accuses of involvement in the Jan. 3 strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad face “murder and terrorism charges,” the state-run IRNA news agency reported.

    Alqasimehr did not identify anyone else sought other than Trump, but stressed that Iran would continue to pursue his prosecution even after his presidency ends.

    Interpol, based in Lyon, France, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Alqasimehr also was quoted as saying that Iran requested a “red notice” be put out for Trump and the others, which represents the highest-level arrest request issued by Interpol. Local authorities generally make the arrests on behalf of the country that requests it. The notices cannot force countries to arrest or extradite suspects, but can put government leaders on the spot and limit suspects’ travel.

    I ask world put all terrorists mullahs in the list of inter pool. They are terrorist #1 since helped hijackers to pass through in 911
    case indeed. Iran must be nuked, Israel has 300 planes waiting to do so sooner is better for world and Iran is cancer of middle east that has been 41 years gave money for nation of Iran to terrorists PLO, Hezbollah and Yemen huttis Shiite Muslims.
