Russian media regularly publish stories about what it calls extremely dangerous Ukrainian nuclear power plants, predicting that Ukraine’s atomic sector is on the point of collapse, and it has been debunked several times before by Stopfake. Ukraine’s Nuclear Regulatory Agency states that there were no nuclear mishaps in Ukraine. it is also not clear from the text who the "European scientist" are, but no other reports of this is to be found. The publication first cited Deutsche Welle as their source, publishing what it said was a screen shot of a story about nuclear dangers in Ukraine. Deutsche Welle had never featured such a story.
