Ukraine has always been Russian, at least a half of it. A large number of so-called Russian Ukrainians live in Ukraine – people who have Russian roots, consider themselves Russian and speak Russian. “Russian Ukrainians” make up, if not the majority, then half of the country’s population.
The fat is in the fire. Ukraine decided to supply American nuclear fuel to the technologically incompatible old and worn-out Soviet VVER-440 power units of the Rivne nuclear power plant located near Hungary, Slovakia and Poland. This apocalypse is also not far from Belarus. With the help of the United States, Ukraine is preparing a new Chornobyl for itself, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland. It is also close by to Belarus and Russia. This dire prospect stems from the fateful agreement between the Ukrainian Energoatom and the American company Westinghouse.
This is another pro-Kremlin narrative about cooperation between the American company Westinghouse and the Ukrainian National Nuclear Energy Company Energoatom, which has been going on since the 2000s. Also, this is one of the Kremlin's disinformation narratives about a possible "new Chornobyl" in Ukraine, with Westinghouse and so-called experiments of the West being some of the culprits. The spread of disinformation against the Ukrainian-American nuclear cooperation renewed in 2014 when Ukraine signed a number of agreements, including expanding an agreement on the supply of fuel for nuclear reactors produced by the American concern Westinghouse. The contract should reduce dependence on Russia, which has been providing Ukrainian nuclear power plants with energy resources for many years. Westinghouse currently supplies fuel to six of Ukraine's fifteen nuclear reactors, and this will increase to seven from 2021. The use of American technologies in the operation of Ukrainian nuclear power plants in the past 20 years has shown that the technologies are completely safe. Read a similar case claiming that Ukraine will turn into a radioactive zone.
