High-level radiation in Belarus' plant does not cause danger to Lithuania
"Lithuanian residents can rest assured that this event will not mean any additional exposure to radiation," the RSG said.
A state of emergency has been announced in the Belarusian plant as the ionizing radiation dose rate there 50 times exceeds the natural radiation level. The rate increased up to 6-10 mSv/h because of a metal construction brought from India, writes LETA/ELTA.
"However, the ionizing radiation dose 2 metres away from the construction does not exceed the natural level. It is thought that a radioactively contaminated metal was used to built the construction," the RSG said.
