Abstract During the berth tests of the atomic icebreaker Lenin, we investigated the amount of radioactive substances in the air of the central section holds, in the icebreaker's mainmast, as well as in the atmospheric air, river water, and flora and fauna in the region adjoining the test location. The investigation results indicate that the nuclear power plant of the atomic icebreaker Lenin is provided with a highly efficient radiation protection system, due to which the operation of this vessel is completely safe for the servicing personnel, the berth location, and the stationing of the icebreaker and the ships following in its wake.
