The dose loads from the natural and technogenic background to the population living in the vicinity of NPP with VVER-1200 in Kaliningrad Oblast were estimated on the basis of radioecological inspection data. The average yearly effective population irradiation dose from natural and technogenic radionuclides present in the environment is equal to 2.42 mSv. The population radiation impact from atmospheric emissions is predicted. The maximum dose load is ~1 μSv/yr and does not exceed the quota for radioactive emissions from NPP 10 μmSv/yr.
