Russian nuclear power agency Rosatom dismissed on Monday rumors circulating of a radioactive leak from two plants in northwest and south Russia.
Bogus e-mail messages on June 15 said that there had been alleged radioactive leaks at the Leningrad nuclear power station, in northwest Russia, and the Volgodonsk nuclear power plant, in the south of the country, a spokesman for the company said.
"In fact, all nuclear power stations in Russia are operating in completely normal regimes. The background radiation is within the natural levels for the environment," the spokesman said.
The spokesman called the messages a provocation aimed at distributing gossip about an alleged accident.
