As previously reported, the German office for radiation protection, September 29 — October 3, found in Europe, in air samples from Austria and Germany, traces of radioactive ruthenium-106 for population concentration. The office suggested that the source is allegedly in Russia, the southern Urals, without specifying, on the basis of which to make such conclusions. The laboratory of Russian regions said they did not record the last time the air content of ruthenium-106.
Ruthenium-106 is used as a radiation source in cancer therapy. Rarely ruthenium-106 is used in radioisotope thermoelectric generators, which are used in power supply satellites. A substance can also occur in the processing of nuclear fuel elements.
