A new report reveals that radiation from Ukraine's Zaporozhye Nuclear Plant has exceeded the norm by 16 times.
According to a leaked document by Ukraine's State Service for Emergency Situations, Ukrainian nuclear scientists misinformed the public and the media about the real state of affairs at the power station. They announced that the repair works had ended successfully after radiation detection on December 28. The incident comes a month after a similar one forced the country's Energy Minister to defend the plant's safety publicly. Zaporozhye is the largest nuclear energy facility in Ukraine and Europe.
