American nuclear fuel will cause a second Chernobyl

Summary of Disinformation

The American nuclear fuel that Ukraine is going to use instead of Russian fuel will cause the second Chernobyl. This political decision which didn’t pass any technical verification is very dangerous for the neighbour countries as well.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation. Westinghouse has been accused several times of producing non safe fuel, without any evidence www.rferl.org/a/chornobyl-zaparozhye-nuclear-pushilin-westinghouse-disaster-fuel/26766554.html, . Pro-Kremlin outlets regularly publish stories about what they call extremely dangerous Ukrainian nuclear power plants, predicting that Ukraine’s atomic sector is on the point of collapse (see e.g #DisinfoReview nr 62), and it has been debunked several times before by Stopfake www.stopfake.org/en/fake-ukraine-turning-into-europe-s-nuclear-dump/, .
