Massive 106Ru release occurred in Eurasia in 2017
Airborne concentrations and chemical considerations of radioactive ruthenium from an undeclared major nuclear release in 2017

A massive atmospheric release of radioactive 106Ru occurred in Eurasia in 2017, which must have been caused by a sizeable, yet undeclared nuclear accident. This work presents the most compelling monitoring dataset of this release, comprising 1,100 atmospheric and 200 deposition data points from the Eurasian region. The data suggest a release from a nuclear reprocessing facility located in the Southern Urals, possibly from the Mayak nuclear complex.


Chemical and radioanalytical investigations of 106Ru-containing air filters from Vienna in fall 2017: searching for stable element anomalies

Related to the recent nuclear release of radioactive ruthenium isotopes in fall 2017, we analyzed air filters from Vienna for irregularities in the (stable) elemental composition of particulate matter from this period. Methods were SEM/EDXS and INAA. For comparison, a reference filter from 2007 and blank filters were used. The chemical fingerprint encompassed 28 elements. The results show no indication for a considerable change in the elemental composition of the suspended matter. For example, no anomalies in the abundance of platinum group elements were found. The results suggest that the release of 106Ru had not been accompanied by a release of detectable amounts of (activatable) stable elements.

We always ask what have we done because we don't know what we are doing.

'Whatever it was, likely a nuclear meltdown accident on par with Chernobyl or even Fukushima-Daiichi, is affecting radiation monitors across the entire Northern Hemisphere.  Diversion stories bullshitting about a little harmless whiff of pharmaceutical Ruthenium-106 “from Russia” don’t hold up to scrutiny, whatsoever.  Pointing that out to mainstream media outlets has so far not made one iota of difference, suggesting a cover-up of epic proportions…'

'spikes of Ru-103, I-131, Cs-134,  and upticks of Cs-137, Pb-210, Na-22, Be-7, (see also repeated graphs below) a tell-tale mixture of definitely a major radioactive cloud released from an active fission nuclear reactor'

'The military-industrial pathogen, well on its way to meet its “Full Spectrum Dominance 2020” goals, has taken sufficient control over the existing power structures, communication nodes and networks, that no aspect, NONE, of modern civilization offers a meaningful and potentially effective way for genuinely concerned member of the Earth species community to stop its destructiveness.   Modern industrial civilization stops at nothing.'
Horse, maybe this thread could be merged with vital1's? (link above)


A group of scientists called the 'Ring of 5' found evidence of a major nuclear accident that went undeclared in Russia
The nuclear release was "nothing compared to Chernobyl," Steinhauser said. But he noted that it was still the "single greatest release from nuclear-fuel reprocessing that has ever happened."

One unanswered question, he said, is whether the population near the Mayak facility ingested any radiation in their lungs. Steinhauser also said there could be reason to monitor food safety if radiation leaked into the soil and water.

"I'm not blaming Russia, because certain types of accidents are difficult to spot," he said. "For me, it is about the lessons to be learned."

After Fukushima, he said, Japanese officials shared information about the accident that helped improve the world's safety regulations for nuclear power. In the wake of that disaster, the European Union began to require "stress tests" to evaluate the stability of nuclear reactors.

Steinhauser said the Ring of Five was "hopeful that Russia would have come forward" in 2017 in the same way Japan did in 2011. By revealing the mistakes that lead to the accident, he said, Russia could help make nuclear power safer than it was before.
I posted MVB's findings of a 2017 release in the webcam, too.  I was most concerned that Russia has so easily covered up a suspected incident. It's not just the nuclear industry clamping down, nations have their military/security reasons for keeping quiet.   I was afraid we wouldn't be hearing about any nuclear mishaps after Fuku.  TEPCO lied from the start and minimized Fuku's impact.  No one really believes them anymore.  Russia wouldn't want the media frenzy that Japan has had.  What could people do anyway?  Evacuation wouldn't work in most cases.  So few detectors to know the plume's direction in time.  People think we need the bombs and electricity, so nuclear is free to spread radiation and pretend that nothing happened and it was safe anyway.  It took two years for a scientific report to come out.  Kinda late for duck and cover.
