 Increased radiation levels detected in Finland

Radioactive isotopes have been detected in air samples taken in the city of Kotka (Finland).

This was reported by the country's Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK), informs Reuters.< br />
As noted, there is no threat to the population, since a small amount of isotopes was detected.

“The detected activity has no impact on the environment or human health, since the concentration is very low . Small amounts of zirconium and niobium can get into the air, for example, from the fuel of a nuclear power plant during the maintenance of the station,” the department confirmed.

At the same time, the source of radiation in Kotka is still unknown.
