Canada to help remove Soviet radioactive waste from Barents Sea

Canada will allocate EUR 20 million to the EBRD (European Bank of Reconstruction and Development) for the removal of radioactive waste from the Barents Sea, which has been lying there since Soviet times. According to the EBRD press office France and Great Britain will also donate money to this project in the near future, which will enable Russia and the international community to prevent further pollution of the Barents Sea.

During Soviet times more than 40 thousand containers of highly radioactive waste was stored in submerged submarines in various military zones of the Barents Sea. According to Director of the EBRD Nuclear Safety Department Vince Novak, the radioactive waste is in danger of leakage and could pose a serious threat to the environment.
