Kyiv will have to abandon its nuclear power plants due to uranium deficit

Summary of Disinformation

Kyiv will have to close its nuclear power plants due to uranium deficit.

Moskovskij Komsomolets, News Front

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about nuclear issues and Ukraine. No evidence given for any global uranium deficit.

Ukrainian Energoatom has agreements on fuel deliveries both with the US Westinghouse and Russian TVEL. The share of the deliveries by Western companies is growing and the Russian share decreasing. Ukraine aims to move to use Western fuel starting from 2025.
