Spill of rocket fuel occidizer at Siberian town of Chulym localised

The spill of the "melange" component of rocket fuel at the town of Chulym of the Novosibirsk Region has been localised, RIA Novosti was told at the information directorate of the Emergency Situations Ministry (MChS) of Russia on Monday.

"A tank of the necessary brand has already been brought to Chulym railway station to pump 'melange' into it", RIA Novosti's interlocutor noted. The station is working in its usual mode.

As the MChS representative stated, "there is no threat to the local population".

The evacuation of the population from the 10-kilometre zone from the place of the spill of the dangerous substance, the shut-down of the children's institutions and the other measures "were of the preliminary character", the MChS officials state. A total of about 400 people were evacuated.

The leak of the "melange" oxidizer of rocket fuel at Chulym station was revealed last night. About one litre of the substance pours out every ten minutes.
