The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

For the nuclear industry, coronavirus is helpful, as nuclear wastes go quietly from Germany to Russia

FoE Europe 25th June 2020, Russia and Germany have taken advantage of the coronavirus crisis to resume
shipping radioactive waste to dump in the Urals and Siberia in northern
Russia.
When Russian environmental groups discovered, in autumn 2019, that
Germany was exporting radioactive waste from it’s nuclear power stations to
Russia, via the harbor of Amsterdam, they directly organized protests in
the three countries.
Those protests had success, and the transport by rail
and sea of uranium – a waste product of nuclear fuel production by Urenco
Germany – was put on hold. That was before the coronavirus crisis hit.
But
in March 2020, when Covid-19 lockdowns restricted people’s right to protest
in Russia even further, the shipments of radioactive waste were set to
resume.
