Crises In Civilisation…
The mysterious radioactive clouds had covered a good part of entire Europe in 2017, because of an accident at a Russian nuclear power plant!
A Team of Scientists has revealed the fact after conducting researches for the last two years. In its latest report, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences stated that scientists had detected the radiation spike, in the form of an extremely high airborne concentration of the radioactive isotope ‘Ruthenium-106’, in October 2017. However, they reportedly failed to confirm the source of the dramatic radiation surge (nearly 1,000 times of normal levels). At that time, Moscow claimed that radioactive clouds also gathered over Russia’s Ural Mountains! However, Kremlin denied that the Russian nuclear facilities were responsible for the accidental release of Ruthenium-106. Instead, the Nuclear Agency Corporation of Russia reported that destruction of a satellite had triggered the radiation surge of a radioactive isotope!
Radio-ecologist Georg Steinhauser from the University of Hanover and his co-researchers have confirmed that the source of radioactive radiation was Mayak (Production Association), one of the biggest nuclear facilities in the Russian Federation, housing a reprocessing plant.
In their report, the researchers stated: “Today most of these European networks are connected to each other via the informal ‘Ring of Five’ (Ro5) platform for the purpose of rapid exchange of expert information on a laboratory level about airborne radio-nuclides detected at trace levels. In October 2017, an unprecedented release of Ruthenium-106 into the atmosphere was the subject of numerous detection and exchanges within the Ro5.” The report added: “Based on times series of detections at various locations in Central Europe, the event was characterised as a short release. The plume duration lasted about 1 to 3 days on average, depending on the location, with the exception of a few areas.” However, the accident did not trigger a major crisis for the global community as the intensity of the radioactive radiation was very low….
Nuclear Power Plant at Mayak
It is to be noted that six decades before the 2017 accident, i.e. in 1957, the Russian Nuclear Power plant at Mayak experienced a similar accident! Later in 1986, a nuclear accident occurred at the No 4 nuclear reactor in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Pripyat, Ukraine.
It is unfortunate that the nuclear-powerful nations are yet to take adequate measures to avoid a catastrophe-like situation. Their casual approach could endanger this planet in the coming years.
