Russian customs rejects radioactive cars from Japan

Customs officers in Russia’s Far Eastern city of Vladivostok have rejected 17 cars and spare parts from Japan this year due to unsafe radiation levels, a substantial decrease from last year, the Russian Customs Service said Monday.

“In the first quarter of 2014, customs officers have sifted out 17 objects [cars or parts] with increased nuclear radiation levels and beta-active radio nucleotides, shipped by sea from Japanese ports. The import of all 17 contaminated objects was prohibited and they were shipped back,” the Vladivostok Customs Service said in a statement.

According to the statement, the risks of possible import of contaminated products from Japan are steadily declining. After the Fukushima disaster in 2011, sea ports of Russia’s Far East were flooded with radioactive import products.
