Work of Russian and Chinese specialists to examine consequences of the contamination of the Amur River
Work of Russian and Chinese specialists to examine consequences of the contamination of the Amur River and the Sea of Okhotsk has not been completed. “We shall accomplish the monitoring in a special regime of the condition of the river until the end of the spring flood,” the deputy chief of the Russian Federal Agency for Supervision of Natural Resources, Oleg Mitvol, said at his meeting with Russian and Chinese experts over the contamination problem in the State Duma on Tuesday. An explosion at a chemical plant in China left contaminated with toxic substances the Sungari River that is a tributary of the Amur. Russians trust the Chinese side and accept China’s information about the content of toxic substances in the rivers, Mitvol said. At the same time, the Chinese side tends to understate the ecological danger in the regions, he added. Mitvol questioned assertions about relative environmental stabilisation and a normal quality of the water in the Sungari River. Nitrobenzene concentrations at the explosion site in China were significantly higher than it was reported by Beijing, he said. Mitvol stressed that Russia “will insist further on taking all measures for protecting the health of citizens who live in the Khabarovsk Territory and minimising the consequences of the ecological catastrophe at the chemical plant in China”.
