A NUCLEAR disaster in Russia has sent a radioactive cloud across Europe, experts have warned.
French nuclear safety institute IRSN made the terrifying warning yesterday.
Peres said that in recent weeks IRSN and several other nuclear safety institutes in Europe had measured high levels of radioactive ruthenium 106.
It is usually used in nuclear medicine.
He continued that the quantity released was “major” and would have triggered a major evacuation if it happened in France.
Measurements showed high levels of ruthenium 106 in the atmosphere of the majority of European countries at the beginning of October.
The IRSN said it would have had no consequence for human health and the environment.
The probability of it getting into imported food is also extremely low.
This comes as just last month it was revealed in North Korea at least 200 people were killed when a “unfinished” tunnel collapsed at the underground Punggye-ri nuclear test base on September 10.
There were fears the collapse could have triggered a Fukushima-Chernobyl radioactive leak.
Fallout was feared to have been unleashed across the world.
