American nuclear fuel will cause a second Chernobyl

Summary

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/, .

Moldovan workers live in poverty after the European integration has started

A simple qualified worker can hardly find a job now and lives in poverty in contrast to the victorious reports of Moldovan authorities about how living has become better during the European integration.

Disproof

The unemployment rate in Moldova decreased to 3.5 percent in the second quarter of 2017 from 4 percent a year earlier. Unemployment Rate in Moldova averaged 6.28 percent from 2000 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 13 percent in the first quarter of 2006 and a record low of 2.90 percent in the third quarter of 2016.
Conclusion: before signing the Association Agreement with EU, the unemployment rate has been even higher than it is now.
