Russian Agency Confirms Radiation Spike Near Northern Naval Test Site | Mining Awareness +

In its statement published by the state news agency TASS, Rosgidromet cited data collected by a northern regional monitoring agency, saying that gamma radiation levels jumped by 4 to 16 times normal levels in Severodvinsk on August 8. TASS also quoted an official with the state-run nuclear agency Rosatom as saying the levels were harmless for humans.

An earlier report published on August 8 by Arkhangelsk regional emergency officials said radiation levels had risen to 20 times normal levels. That report was circulated by the environmental group Greenpeace. https://greenpeace.ru/news/2019/08/08/greenpeace-trebuet-proverki-skachka-radiacionnogo-fona-v-arhangelskoj-oblasti/

The Severodvinsk city administration had also published a statement on August 8 reporting an increase in radiation, though that statement was later taken down from its website.
