According to a Moscow environmental group, there are now about 1,500 enterprises in the Russian capital that use radioactive materials, as well as some 100 nuclear waste storage facilities. Several research institutes are said to discharge purified wastes into a local brook that empties into the Moscow River. Various parts of the city suffer from radioactive contamination of the air, land, or water. (Ekonomika i zhizn, no. 12, March 22)
