The danger of radioactive pollution with Ruthenium-106 came from Romania, and not from Russia

Summary of Disinformation

The radioactive cloud containing isotopes of Ruthenium-106 was allegedly recorded over a number of European countries, and the highest concentration is registered in Romania. So the source of the radioactive pollution is probably Romania and not Russia.


The French institute in nuclear and radiological risks IRSN shows that the highest concentration of ruthenium-106 isotopes is recorded between the Ural Mountains and Volga.The Romanian institute CNCAN also confirmed that "during this period no work was carried out on the territory of Romania for the production, transportation or use of ruthenium-106".

The Russian authorities also admitted that the source of radioactivity is located in Ural.
