Thank you, a.ua, for providing this sober statement of fact.
It would be great if TPTB in the Ukraine could learn from your example, that the best way to deflate rumors is to tell the truth.
Afaik, no mention was made of the reconnect of Unit 6 by any of the news media here in the US.
Do you know whether Unit 3 got reconnected as well as planned?
Both units went back online. Unit 6 was back on the grid the same day.

Russians have become very common say lies
We are tired of refuting.
However, you are right.

All plants in ex-USSR are Soviet-era designs.

This saga seem to be coming to an end - despite Russian assurances that they will not cut supplies of nuclear fuel, Ukraine is going to buy most, or even all, future fuel from Westinghouse. (It would look stupid to ask West to sanction Russia but continue to trade with them yourself, right?).
it is a bit wrong.
Fuel Westinghouse will (in the future) 3 units

South Ukraine Nuclear Power Plant , units №2,№3
Zaporizhzhya NPP unit №5

Here is a direct quote:
it is the goal of diversification. TVEL as a major - but with a strong by backwater from Westinghouse.

moreover, the two units
Rivne NPP. №4 (Getting Started in 2004)
Khmelnitsky №2 (Getting Started in 2004)
under the contract are required to work only on Russian fuel.

In the US we nuclear workers have a saying "We get worse press than the President":rolleyes:

Why would Ukraine give a F about past contracts with Russia? Russia isn't honoring its numerous treaty obligations to Ukraine.
