A mysterious radiation leak, larger than Fukushima disaster, has allegedly been traced to a former U.S.S.R. / Russian facility ?

In 2017, numerous European countries reported that they had detected significant levels of the radioactive isotope ruthenium-106. 

Fortunately, the concentrations weren’t hazardous to human health, but it was still important to trace the source of the leak since levels could be more dangerous at the source.

Using more than 1,300 measurements from 176 measuring stations in 29 countries, a team of researchers determined that the leak had come from the Mayak nuclear complex in the Urals region of Russia,which had also been the site of the devastating Kyshtym disaster in 1957.
