Not wanting to be cooked by your own bones is racism against Russia!
>A secretive Russian nuclear facility has denied it was behind high atmospheric concentrations of the radioactive isotope ruthenium-106, after Russia’s meteorological service confirmed levels several hundred times the norm were found in several locations in the country during tests in late September.

>Greenpeace has called for an investigation into a potential cover-up of a nuclear accident after Russia’s nuclear agency had denied European reports of increased ruthenium-106 levels. Rosgidromet, the weather monitoring service, released test data on Monday that showed levels were indeed much higher than normal. The most potent site was Argayash in the south Urals, where levels were 986 times the norm.

>Argayash is about 20 miles from Mayak, a facility that reprocesses spent nuclear fuel. The plant facility issued a denial on Tuesday. “The contamination of the atmosphere with ruthenium-106 isotope registered by Rosgidromet is not linked to the activity of Mayak,” a statement said.

>It went on to reassure people that the measurements were well below dangerous levels: “The measurements which Rosgidromet has released suggest that the dose people might have received is 20,000 times less than the allowed annual dose and presents no threat at all to health.”

>Russia has a history of covering up their fuckups.
Since Europe has taken a course to become nuclear-free, every progressive media has already assumed that Europe is already nuclear-free indeed, and anything that is radioactive can only come from east - despite the fact that winds in Europe never fucking blow from Urals.

>Ru-106 is used in brachytherapy for treatment of uveal melanoma that provides perfect local control rates and eye preservation with a relatively low recurrence rate.

Any actual nuclear incident usually involves hundreds of highly-radioactive isotopes released simultaneously in notable amount, but for illiterate "journalists" only one of them is enough to sow panic. It's too easy, anyway, with modern educational standards nobody has even slightest idea what radioactivity is.


>Ruthenium 106 has been detected in late September by several European networks involved in the monitoring of atmospheric radioactive contamination, at levels of a few milliBecquerels per cubic meter of air.

>Based on the meteorological conditions provided by Météo France and the measurement results available in European countries, IRSN carried out simulations to locate the release zone, to assess the quantity of ruthenium released, as well as the period and the duration of the release.

>few milliBecquerels per cubic meter of air

This was the initial story, anyway, and it basically means that the stunning map OP displayed was pulled out of their asses on the basis of data sample that amounts to mouse fart.

What the fuck are you smoking? There are still some extremely pro-nuclear countries in euroland. Don't make sweeping generalizations like that. You make it sound like it's been decided for an entire continent.

>and it basically means that the stunning map OP displayed was pulled out of their asses on the basis of data sample that amounts to mouse fart.

Lies, damned lies and statistics.

Doesn't change the fact that partial releases and detections are important things to monitor.
After all, it took us forever to figure out Chernobyl. I was literally playing in my backyard when the supposed fallout swept over my country. It's have been nice if we could have known before that happened.

I'm aware of that, but we are talking about "progressive media", which usually exist in their own separate reality.

>After all, it took us forever to figure out Chernobyl. I was literally playing in my backyard when the supposed fallout swept over my country.
When considering effects that aren't immediately obvious, the real harm of radioactivity is a very debatable matter. There's enough chemicals, dust, pollution in the air that affect people so much more severely, but because 30 years of radiophobia promotion, even slightest outbreak becomes huge news and a motive to blame somebody.

When people remember radioactivity they usually talk about Chernobyl, but in reality, there's dozen of places that had enough radiation outbreak to endanger health of civilian population. I should know better, I've seen one myself. Radioactive fallout effects of Chernobyl exaggerated by thousands of times.


>For this reason, Arutyunian says, the population does not show and cannot show any signs of radiological effects except for the already mentioned thyroid gland cancer. According to specialists at the Radiation Medicine Research Center under Ukraine’s Academy of Medical Science, of the 2.34 million people resident in the contaminated areas of Ukraine about 94,800 died from cancer of various origin over twelve years following the catastrophe; an extra 750 died due to Chernobyl-related cancer.

>It is noteworthy that in 2.8 million people regardless of the place where they live radiation-unrelated cancer kills 4,000 to 6,000 a year, in other words, the rate is 90,000 to 170,000 deaths over 30 years.

By no means it indicates that radioactivity is safe and can be withstood as easily as some people may conclude after nuking the country of Japan two actually three times in a row. The reason these effects are so moderate is that modern safety standards of nuclear energy are as hight as it is reasonably possible.

you are only butthurt because the someone to blame here is you russian non-humans. which practical "chemicals, dust, pollution in the air" does even come close to radiological pollution in it's effects? congratulations btw. you have supplanted Clio as the most cancerous (pun not intended) user here.

Calm your tits, mr. White Race Defender, nobody blames anyone except for you and your Greenpeace friends.

As I said before to clarify all dumbass illiterate opinions, there's enough to die from them rather them from some radiation-associated sickness, unless you stick your ass into reactor room and take a deep breath. Now GTFO.

  Sanctions are working.


>Natural gas and power prices earlier jumped in Europe after the explosion, and Brent crude oil futures rose above $65 a barrel for the first time since June 2015, extending their premium over the U.S. benchmark. Britain, which is struggling to absorb the impact of a crack that shut down a key North Sea pipeline network, saw some of the biggest increases.

>Natural gas flows were set to recover in Europe after an explosion at an Austrian hub threatened supplies already pinched by a closed pipeline in the North Sea and a cold snap across the continent.

>A blast about 9 a.m. at the Baumgarten compressor station killed at least one person and injured at least 21 people, interrupting flows at one of the main points where Russian natural gas enters Europe. That followed two days of snow in London and cooler-than-normal temperatures spread from the Alps to Scandinavia, which is raising demand for heating fuels.

Sanctions are working as planned.


>British homes are set to be heated over the new year with gas from a Russian project targeted by US sanctions, as the shutdown of a key North Sea pipeline slashes domestic output and sends utilities and traders scrambling for supplies.

Sanctions are working as intended.

>imagine being this mad


>Polish state-owned Lotos refinery signs a deal for minimum five US oil deliveries while the Polish Foreign minister visits a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in the US.


>The ERU Group has imported around 70 million cubic meters (mcm) of gas from the United States to Ukraine via the Świnoujście LNG terminal in Poland, the co-owner of the group, Andriy Favorov, has told Interfax-Ukraine.

>As reported, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), an U.S. Government agency, provided guarantees for a $38 million loan to Energy Resources of Ukraine (ERU) to purchase gas, including its imports from the United States.

Just... imagine becoming deranged to this degree. Exporting gas to a country that has more gas pipelines than half of the Europe.

>Building the $27 billion Yamal liquefied natural gas project meant shipping more than 5 million tons of materials to construct a forest of concrete and steel 600 kilometers north of the Arctic circle, where temperatures can drop to -50 degrees celsius and the sun disappears for two months straight.

>Yet those challenges weren’t as tough as the U.S. sanctions imposed in 2014, forcing a complete refinancing just as construction was about to start. Jacques de Boisseson, head of the Moscow office of French energy giant Total SA, which has a 20 percent stake in Yamal LNG, said there were "various moments" when he thought the project may never happen.

>That picture
The world is a sphere. Those dots are in a perfect grid.
It seems implausible that someone would waste time taking measurements at a certain spacing that could be aligned into a grid when choosing an arbitrary projection of that geography onto a plane. I'm not saying anything here isn't true because I don't fucking care. But my first thought here is that someone getting very creative with a dataset. What we are probably looking is basically a graphics design filter over an extrapolated heatmap data, which is a GREAT way to hide things that may not fit a narrative.

It also cuts off too early, and needs to go farther east.

>Russian LNG is unloaded in Everett; the supplier (but not gas) faces US sanctions


>By Jon Chesto GLOBE STAFF JANUARY 30, 2018

>A giant tanker of liquefied natural gas that unloaded at the Distrigas terminal in Everett over the past two days included fuel from a plant in Siberia owned by a Russian company under US sanctions.

>It’s unclear how much of the LNG carried by the Gaselys came from Russia because it was mixed with liquefied gas from other countries while stored temporarily at a UK facility. The owner of the Distrigas facility, the French company Engie, bought the fuel on global spot markets when the extreme cold spell earlier this winter sapped inventories and drove up prices of natural gas coming in by pipeline.

>bought the fuel on global spot markets

>Jim Bride, president of Energy Tariff Experts LLC in Cambridge, said the acceptance of Russian gas comes as the United States is promoting energy independence and targeting exports to counter Russia’s grip on European gas markets. The importing of Russian gas into New England, he said, doesn’t help with this narrative.

The point is, a free market is supposed to work both ways. US worked very hard all these years since the end of USSR to facilitate the situation in their favour, but they still fail to plug all the holes in their leaking blockade.

If Russia does not want sanctions to be enforced against it, it should end it's occupation of Ukraine.
>> No. 117863 ID: 278cbe
Soon enough Ukraine will end itself, and there will be no occupation of it. But that does not mean anything to sanctions, because the reason is not Russia's actions, but it's very existence.
