OREANDA-NEWS. Specialists from the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment of the Netherlands said that they could not determine the origin of the radioactive particles, an increased concentration of which was recorded in Northern Europe.

This was announced on the website of the Institute. “It is not possible to pinpoint the source because of the limited amount of data. At the moment, the country of origin cannot be determined,” the Dutch experts said in a statement.
