The International Physicians of the World for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) has published a statement that monitoring data indicate that there are already radioactive clouds in the sky over Ukraine, and if the wind changes direction, these clouds can cover Europe.
IPPNW co-chairman Alex Rosen said that clouds of smoke from Ukraine have already reached some regions of Europe, where an increased level of the radioactive nuclide cesium-137 has been recorded.
In turn, the Russian Roshydromet reports that the radiation monitoring posts operating as part of the federal service monitoring system have not yet recorded changes in the radiation situation in Russia.
The State Emergency Service of Ukraine informs that in the Chernobyl exclusion zone, fire extinguishing continues on the territory of Korogodsky, Lubyansky, Parishivsky, Dityatkovsky and Denisovetsky forestries. The main efforts are aimed at localizing 3 cells (the villages of Rassokha, Krivaya Gora and Rudki - Buryakovka) of smoldering hemp, wood residues and two peat bogs in the cells traversed by fire. There is no threat to the Shelter, the radioactive waste storage facility and other critical facilities in the exclusion zone.
The radiation background in the city of Kiev and Kiev region is within normal limits and does not exceed natural background values (Kiev - 0.012 mR / h, Kiev region - within 0.011 mR / h with an admissible background of 0.05 mR / h).
In the exclusion zone and unconditional (obligatory) resettlement: Chernobyl - 0, 021 mR / h, at the Dityatki KDP - 0, 02 mR / h with a control permissible level of 0, 055 mR / h.
