A radiation source discovered Friday morning at the port of Vladivostok in the Far East has been removed
Primtekhnopolis, which deals with collecting radioactive waste and eliminating radioactive contamination, said the dangerous source was found in scrap metal. When a truck loaded with scrap metal was trying to enter the port, a radiation control system went off. Primtekhnopolis experts put the source into a special container and took it away. The port's background level of radiation is normal. Last week, 89 radioactive sources, which specialists said were spare parts from some equipment, were confiscated in Vladivostok. They were emanating radiation recorded at 1,500 microroentgen per hour. Natural background is 10-15 microroentgen per hour. The radiation sources were detected with the help of the Yantar control system, installed on all vehicle and railroad checkpoints as well as pedestrian checkpoints in Vladivostok.
