Russian customs stop 300 radioactive cars at Japanese border

Russian customs officials have stopped the smuggling of nearly 300
radioactively contaminated cars at the Japanese border as part of an
ongoing operation monitoring imports following the disaster at Japan's
Fukushima nuclear power plant last year.
­"We have inspected 150,000 vehicles as part of this monitoring
mission. Three hundred units that have been seized indicated a level of
radioactivity,” said Gennady Onishchenko, the head of Russia’s consumer rights watchdog. After
the Fukushima Daichi nuclear disaster in March 2011, the Russian
government has implemented a monitoring mission whereby all imports from
Japan, including food and consumer goods, are checked for radioactive
contamination.Since the mission’s inception, experts have checked
500,000 shipments, 908 ships, 473 aircraft and more than 42,000 people
that have arrived from Japan.Russian authorities, together
