MOSCOW, December 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The radiation level did not change and does not exceed the natural radiation level (9-11 micro-roentgens per hour) at 13:00 Moscow time at the shipyard in Roslyakovo, the Murmansk Region, a source in the press service of the Defence Ministry told Itar-Tass over the fire onboard the Yekaterinburg nuclear submarine, which was in the dock of the shipyard.
“These reports were made by specialists of the radiation safety service of the Northern Fleet that are maintaining the radiobiological monitoring of the environment in Roslyakovo,” the source said.
The emergency situation service in the Murmansk Region told Itar-Tass that the fire onboard the Yekaterinburg nuclear submarine does not pose a threat to local residents, as “the radiation situation in Roslyakovo and neighbouring districts is normal.”
The situation in the fire area is being kept under control of the Russian consumer rights watchdog, which is monitoring the environment. The radiation level does not exceed the natural level in Roslyakovo, and the concentration of toxic agents in the air did not exceed the permissible level, a source in the Russian consumer rights watchdog said.
