Russia denies knowledge of nuclear particles detected over the Baltic Sea

Russia is denying all knowledge of, let alone liability for, the emergency situation in regard to the nuclear particles detected over the Baltic Sea, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.

“We have an absolutely advanced radiation levels safety monitoring system and there are no any emergency alarms,” Peskov told reporters. “We do not know the source of this information.”

Radiation sensors in Stockholm detected higher-than-usual levels of albeit harmless isotopes produced by nuclear fission, probably from somewhere on or near the Baltic Sea, a body running a worldwide network of such sensors said last week.

“These are certainly nuclear fission products, most likely from a civil source,” a spokeswoman for the Vienna-based CTBTO said, referring to the atomic chain reaction that generates heat in a nuclear reactor.
