‘Rospotrebnadzor analyzed the levels of the volume activity of the ruthenium-106 spotted by Roshyrdometer in the atmosphere in Russia in September-October 2017 and determined that the maximal levels of the volume activity of the ruthenium-106 in the atmosphere was in 200 or more times less than the admissible level and do not constitute a danger for the health of the population’, the message said.
