Disposal of hazardous substances near St. Petersburg may cost 6 billion rubles

Disposal of hazardous substances by the RRC Applied Chemistry, due to which a high alert regime was introduced in the Kuzmolovsky urban settlement, may cost 6 billion rubles. The head of the Vsevolozhsk district administration, Andrei Nizovsky, told Kommersant-SPb today. He did not specify what kind of substances he was talking about.

The press service of the government of the Leningrad region emphasized that the high alert regime in Kuzmolovo is of a technical nature. “During the privatization of property previously owned by the Federal State Unitary Enterprise” RRC “Applied Chemistry” “, the warehouse with production materials with a radioactive trace was not included in the list of privatization objects. By introducing a special regime, the Leningrad Region has put before the Federal Property Management Agency the question of determining a specialized user of the specified object, ”the message says. Thus, with the help of the measures introduced, the authorities expect to find a person responsible for the radiation complex.

According to the information on the company’s website, its form of ownership changed from FSUE RRC Applied Chemistry to JSC RRC Applied Chemistry (GIPH). Earlier it was reported that the issue of the protection of hazardous materials has not yet been resolved. Applied Chemistry issued an ultimatum that they would be responsible for them until the end of May, said Mr. Nizovsky. The introduction of the high alert regime came as a surprise to the local administration:

We saw this document ourselves and were stunned, ”the head of the administration commented on the situation.

The high alert mode in the Kuzmolovsky urban settlement of the Leningrad region was introduced today from 10:00.
