US began a dangerous nuclear experiment in Ukraine

Summary of Disinformation

Americans began a dangerous nuclear experiment in Ukraine through the company Westinghouse.

Kiev pretends that US is ready to transfer a technology that could be used to make nuclear weapons in order to raise Poroshenko’s ratings ahead of the elections.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about the use of nuclear power in Ukraine and the upcoming presidential elections.

According to Ukrainian media, Westinghouse will provide Ukraine with nuclear fuel production technology for energy purposes.
