Waters of Sungari River (China) containing toxic waste have reached the Russian territory. Barrels with toxic (and explosive as well) substances were swept away into the river by floodwaters from factory.
      About 7, 100 barrels with waste were swept away into Sungary in Jilin province of China in July. The Chinese administration has organized a large-scale operation, so they have managed to retrieve almost all the barrels from the river. According to the Chenese professionals, there were no leakage of waste into the river.
      Sungari River is a side stream of Amur River, forming the border between the Russian Far East and Northeastern China. The Russian experts and MES officers began monitoring of the water chemistry and visual monitoring. The samples demonstrate that water chemistry is within normal limits. However, the city of Khabarovsk will be reached by supposedly polluted waters on the August, 13 - 15 prepares water reserves and for possible interrupt in water supply intake.
