Belarus Reacted To Statements From Lithuania About “emergency At The Nuclear Power Plant”

Belarus has denied the statement of the head of the Center for Radiological Safety of Lithuania, Julius Zhilyukas, that on March 7 the radiation monitoring stations were turned off in the country, because some kind of emergency allegedly happened at the Ostrovets (Belarusian) NPP. Belhydromet writes about this.


The agency claims that on that day the automatic points for measuring the dose rate of gamma radiation in the area of ​​the nuclear power plant “functioned normally, there were no failures in data transmission to the Belhydromet Response Center.”

They clarified that on March 7, every 10 minutes, data from the sensors came to the ASKRO server, no excess over the background values ​​was recorded: the levels were from 0.05 to 0.11 μSv / h – “the same range of values ​​was observed on the remaining days of March and earlier “.

Belhydromet stated that it transmits the data of ASKRO online “only to interested state bodies of Belarus responsible for responding in case of emergencies.”

“In this regard, the Lithuanian colleagues could not have the information that“ in the middle of the day on March 7, the stations were disconnected from the network, ”the Belarusian source stressed.
