Transport Of Radioactive Materials

Baltic Nuclear Hearing
25 January 2006

NORDEN (DENMARK) -- The Nordic Council Environment and Natural Resources Committee decided to support the call for a hearing on the issue of nuclear installations around the Baltic Sea proposed by the Left-wing Socialist and Green Group (VSG). A number of potential sources of radioactive pollution in the countries around the Baltic worry the VSG. The proposal stated that Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Russia all house plants that represent a potential danger to the Baltic Sea. The Group also expresses deep concern about test drilling to explore the potential for uranium mining in Karelia on both the Russian and Finnish sides of the border. The proposal, also, notes that all transport of radioactive materials constitutes a risk of polluting the Baltic. Source: (Reliability 7)
