The fall of North Korean missiles in the Sea of Japan, including the area near Russia's Nakhodka, has not resulted in any negative consequences for the city
The fall of North Korean missiles in the Sea of Japan, including the area near Russia's Nakhodka, has not resulted in any negative consequences for the city. The press service of the mayor's office cited Acting Nakhodka Mayor Alexander Kostenko as saying that the radiation in the city area remained within the normal levels. The statement referred to the Japanese defence department's reports that North Korea fired several missiles, including a long-range one, during the firing tests on the night to July 5. All the missiles fell in the northwest of the Sea of Japan, and two of the missiles fell in Russia's 200-mile economic zone not far from the Primorsky Territory's coast. One of the close-range missiles fell several tens of kilometres off Nakhodka. The city authorities have not left the incident without attention. On Wednesday evening, Kostenko held an urgent meeting of the city commission on emergencies. As was noted at the meeting, there were no warheads on the test missiles and the radiation remained within the normal levels. Though no state of emergency was declared in the city, security measures were tightened up in Nakhodka. Additional police guards were posted at the North Korean general consulate building. Nakhodka public security police chief Ivan Salin said there were no excesses in the city over the past day in connection with the missile firing. The additional posts near the consulate were removed on Thursday. Meanwhile, North Korea is probably preparing for one more launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile Taepodong-2, NBC television said on Wednesday evening, referring on U.S. officials. North Korea fired at least six missiles, including one Taepodong-2 over the past 36 hours.
