Did radiation over Europe come from Russia ?

Has there been a nuclear accident in Russia ? Image Credit: CC BY-SA 3.0 Boffy b
The unexplained cloud of Ruthenium-106 particles was detected over Europe in September and October.
According to French nuclear authorities, the radioactive cloud that was detected in several European countries earlier this year most likely came from a nuclear accident that occurred somewhere between the Volga river and the Ural Mountains at the end of September.

The detected concentrations of Ruthenium-106 particles were not sufficient enough to be harmful to human health however the area around the site of the accident would have needed to be evacuated.
According to IRSN director Jean-Marc Peres, Russian authorities have denied any knowledge of a nuclear accident in their territory.

"Ruthenium-106 is used as a radiation source in cancer therapy for the treatment of ocular tumours," said a spokesman for Germany's Federal Office for Radiation Protection.

"Ruthenium can also occur during the reprocessing of nuclear fuel elements."

Oh REALLY ? † Curious that none of them ever disagreed with the Kremlin †

Ukraine was part of the USSR at the time, hence, Ukraine was†a satellite of Russia and the decision to cover up the explosion was made in Moscow so therefore†a Russian decision.††

And the Kremlin, of course, at that time was the Soviet parliament, not the Russian one. The USSR had non-Russian leaders - the Georgian Stalin and the Ukrainian Brezhnev being prime examples.

That's like saying that, since the decision for Britain to go to war in Iraq was made in London, it was an English decision rather than a British one; or that, since the idea for America to go to war in Iraq was made in Washington, it was a Washingtonian idea rather than an American one.

No. It really isn't. Sorry † Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have meaningful representation in Parliament, and access to a free press to express any disagreements that they may have.† The various States of the USA elect their representatives to Congress, and have access to a free†reasonably-priced press to express any disagreements that they may have.† The Ukranian Soviet had no meaningful representation in the actual decision-making bodies of the Soviet Union, and had free access to the KGB prison cells if they expressed any disagreements.† Can you see the difference ? †

Your argument is laughable and you inability to accept you are wrong is embarrassing, given you are an adult and I'm not going to waste any more time replying to you.††

Oh, that poor Chelyabinsk oblast' again! Kyshtym disaster, Kyshtym dwarf, the Chelyabinsk meteorite, now radioactive dung falling down from the sky. Sometimes I think the ancient Uralic tribes fled from that land because they discovered the gates of Hell have opened someplace there.
