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.
