Radiation levels in the area of the village of Roslyakovo remain normal. RIA Novosti learnt on Monday in the local centre of the State Sanitary and Epidemic Prevention Committee that following the operation to place the Kursk in a floating dock belonging to the Roslyakovo ship repair plant, radiation levels had not changed. The centre's specialists are taking radiation levels every four-six hours near the submarine and the soil surface nearby. Gamma waves have not been recorded, while no traces of artificial radiation particles have been discovered either. The current level stands at 7-9 microns per hour, which is normal for natural background radiation.
Near the United Nations Glass Palace in New York, there is a metallic sculpture entitled "Evil Defeated by Good", representing Saint George transfixing a dragon with his lance. It was donated by the USSR in 1990 to celebrate the INF Treaty concluded with the USA in 1987
