Research building B at the Bochvar High-Technology Research Institute for Inorganic Materials (VNIINM) located within the city limits of a dense residential development was decommissioned in 2013–2015. Radioactively contaminated equipment and utility services were disassembled and removed, building structures were decontaminated, the framework was dismantled, the grounds of the development site were restored, and radioactive waste was transferred to specialized organizations. The framework was liquidated in strict accord with the norms and regulations governing the use of atomic energy.
