"A radioactive emission from an area in Russia in the autumn of 2017 was much more serious than previously known – in the class with the Harrisburg accident in the united states."
"It shows leaked document from the German parliament, the Bundestag."
"After Russia refused to let a forskningskommission to the suspected area of spillage drew Sweden in the spring from the cooperation in which several countries participated."
"In the autumn of 2017 was suddenly unusually high levels in the air of the radioactive substance ruthenium-106 in 31 european countries."
"From the Swedish radiation safety hold has gone out with to the levels in the discharge were low and did not create any danger for people or the environment."
"Now shows leaked document from the German parliament, the Bundestag, such as Aftonbladet received, that the spill was more serious than previously known."
"In the documents from march 2018 russia for nuclear safety issues responsible to the secretary of state Draw Schwarzelühr-Sutter to utsläppets scale corresponded to a fifth of the seven-point INES scale."
"It means with the RATING-scale terminology that the discharge was an ”accident, with the risk for the environment.” Other accidents that are classified as a fifth is reaktorbranden at Sellafield in 1957, which led to elevated sköldkörtelvärden in the Uk and the Harrisburg accident in 1979 where a reactor was destroyed in a meltdown."
"to investigate the spill, was appointed in the autumn of 2017, on a Russian initiative, an international commission consisting of representatives from Russia, Sweden, France, Germany, the Uk, Finland and Norway. "
"the Meetings in the commission, which was given the name IBRAE, held in Moscow in January and april 2018, and which was attended by two representatives from the Swedish the Swedish Radiation safety authority."
"But in may of 2018 broke the collaboration together, after the Russian authorities refused to allow independent experts to visit the suspected site of release to the south of the ural mountains in Russia."
"In a letter that was sent from the Swedish Radiation safety authority to IBRAEA writing, the acting director general Fredrik Hassel, Sweden is leaving the commission because ”we believe that the independent measurements in the vicinity of the suspected utsläppsplatser must be implemented by at least one team from a country other than the host state”. He ends the letter with that the commission can not continue their work because ”it has not been an option.”"
" It was well we that was most evident against the russians and said that this does not hold, and then chose the russians themselves to put down the committee. We found that it was too slow to get neutral readings. The half-life of the substances which could be measured, and the complexity of it, did that, unless they got it directly, it was useless to continue the work, " says Fredrik Hassel, deputy director general of the Swedish Radiation safety authority."
"it was in an area south of the ural mountains in Russia that the spill stemmed from being fixed in a comprehensive report from the French the Swedish radiation safety authority IRSN. In the report mentioned in particular the nuclear facility Majak, which is located in the closed city of Oziorsk, where in 2017 worked with a cesiumisotop where the discharged substance is ruthenium-106 was a by-product."
"Representatives of the Russian authorities and the company that operates the Majak plant, however, has denied that an accident occurred."
"Fredrik Hassel says that it agrees with the conclusions of the report."
"And the russians themselves have also said that this happened either in Russia or in China," says Fredrik Hassel."
"At the Swedish Radiation safety authority does not want to talk about utsläppets placement on the international INES-scale."
"– It must be done by utsläppslandet itself according to a careful procedure, and it has as far as I know not been done in this case, " says investigator Anna Maria Blixt Buhr of Iowa who participated in the commission."
"instead, speaking the Swedish Radiation safety authority that the spill was about 100 terabecquerel of the substance ruthenium-106. "
"Than today, says the Swedish Radiation safety authority that the discharge does not involve any risk for humans or the environment in Sweden."
