Radiation levels remain within norm in Russia’s Far East

VLADIVOSTOK, April 10 — Radiation levels are within the norm in all districts of Russia's Far East as of early Sunday morning, a spokesman for the regional emergencies ministry said.

"Specialists, who are monitoring all districts of the Far East Region round the clock, have not registered any rise in radiation level," the spokesman said.

Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was seriously damaged by a powerful earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on March 11. Fukushima's operator has since been struggling to stop radioactive leaks from the plant's crippled reactors.

The Japanese authorities announced on Friday that officials will begin measuring radiation levels in export goods in cargo ships at Japan's major ports after China halted imports from the country. (PNA/RIA Novosti)
