Kyiv tried to arrange a «COVID-19-sabotage» on Donbas. The Ukrainian side handed over to DNR a prisoner who was infected with the coronavirus infection COVID-19.
The specialised journal Energy Research & Social Science, published by the Dutch company Elsevier, directly predicts a major nuclear accident at a Ukrainian nuclear power plant in the coming years, with a probability of 80%. The most dangerous, from the point of view of Western experts, are the Rivne and South Ukrainian NPPs.
Disinformation misrepresenting the study of the journal of Energy Research & Social Science. The scientific journal Energy Research & Social Science published the study “Reassessing the Safety of Nuclear Energy” in 2016, which assesses global risks in the nuclear industry. The authors of the publication did not focus on individual countries but analysed the situation as a whole. A group of scientists concluded that "the rate of civil nuclear accidents over time since 1952 decreased significantly from the 1970s, reaching what appears to be a stable level of around 0.003 events per plant per year...We find concrete evidence of a history of learning from previous accidents within the industry, especially the significant reduction in event frequency after the Chornobyl accident in 1986," the article says. The study does not contain any other references to Ukraine or the words “80% probability of a major accident at Ukrainian nuclear power plants”. Read similar case claiming that Ukraine nearly had a new Chornobyl disaster at a NPP.
