Brukt atombrensel skal fraktes fra Finskebukta til Sibir. Der skal det lagres i et midlertidig lager ved elva Jenisei. En ulykke kan føre radioaktiv forurensing fra Sibir via Jenisei til Polhavet og med havstrømmen vestover til Kola og Barentshavet. Radioaktiv fisk og sjømat kan bli resultatet. Russiske miljøvernere fordømmer flyttingen.
