Radiation levels at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant are 14 times higher than normal, according to DPR representative Denis Pushilin cited by LifeNews.

The DPR official claims that the radiation spike was caused by a failed attempt to replace Russian-made fuel rods with US components.

He pointed out that a similar incident had previously occurred at the Temelin nuclear power plant in Czech Republic, prompting the station to switch to Russian-supplied nuclear fuel.

Representatives of the Ukrainian state nuclear corporation, Energoatom, denied Pushilin's claims and declared that currently, radiation levels at the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant and in its vicinity are within acceptable parameters.
