KURILSK (Sakhalin region), September 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will continue monitoring the ecological situation in the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident in Japan that took place on March 2011, chief of the Russian presidential administration Sergey Ivanov said on Wednesday.
“We will monitor this situation and spend money on this,” he told residents of the town of Kurilsk.
Ivanov also said he would take part on Thursday in the seeing off ceremony for a research vessel that will sail along the Kuril Islands to study the ecological situation. According to him, the ship will take “all possible measurements for detecting the Fukushima impact.”
Ivanov said no after-effects of the NPP accident are currently felt. Radioactive water accumulation is one of the main problems faced by the liquidators of Fukushima Daiichi NPP accident. To maintain stable condition of the emergency power units, they have to constantly pump water that leaks through numerous breaches in the reactors. The special purification system is working at the nuclear power plant.
