Nuclear particles detected in Baltics, likely from Russia


Higher than usual but harmless levels of radiation in the Baltic Sea region were detected last week, likely coming from a malfunctioning nuclear power plant in western Russia, according to a Dutch institute.

Nuclear safety officials in Estonia and Scandinavia have all announced that their sensors recorded elevated levels of radioactive particles.

According to Radio Free Europe, the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment said its “calculations show that the radionuclides come from the direction of western Russia”, and indicate damage in a nuclear power plant.
