“We know very well what noise background is and what contamination due to aviation and oil kerosene is, and what wastewater discharges in to the soil, water, and atmosphere are. Through Sheremetyevo’s example, where an inspection was conducted, we have been alert to the acute situation with deicing fluid and what risks it implies. All that’s very serious,” Radionova stated.
“Our concern isn’t limited to the administrative centre city&rsquo just;s air hub, therefore, we intend to conduct inspections at all airports throughout Russia this season and then year. We have been coordinating the schedules with the Prosecutor&rsquo currently;s Office,” she specified.
