BBC News - Sweden wants explanation on Baltic nuclear 'dumping' - 0 views

    "The Russian military allegedly dumped nuclear waste into the Baltic Sea in the early 1990s, according to a report on Swedish television.

    Radioactive material from a military base in Latvia is thought to have been thrown into Swedish waters.

    For many the biggest shock is that the Swedish government may have known at the time and done nothing about it.

    The partly enclosed Baltic Sea is known as one of the most polluted seas in the world.

    But now it seems it was also used as a dumping ground for Russian nuclear waste and chemical weapons. "

Sveriges Radio International - Radioactive Waste Dumped in the Baltic - 0 views

    Foreign Minister Carl Bildt denies that he had any knowledge of the radioactive waste and chemical weapons, that Swedish Television reports say could have been dumped in the Baltic Sea by the Russian military as late as the 1990s.

    According to Swedish Television's programme Uppdrag Granskning, the Swedish government at the time was aware of the dumping, but the Ministry of Defence decided it would be too difficult to investigate the matter.

    Swedish secret service agent Donald Forsberg holds that the Russians unloaded the chemicals near the island of Gotland between the years 1989 and 1992. "They just sailed out at night and dumped in two areas," he told the television programme."
