MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday there was no risk of increased radiation levels after a blast at a military site in northern Russia on Aug. 8 that killed at least five people.

Speaking alongside French President Emmanuel Macron ahead of bilateral talks, Putin said that all of those injured and killed in the blast would receive state awards.

He also said that all necessary safety measures were being taken and that there was no radiation risk.

Russia’s state nuclear agency said five of its staff members were killed and three others injured in a blast involving “isotope power sources” that took place during a rocket test on a sea platform.
