Crew or equipment visible 

When the group enters one of buildings, the red light on the crew camera reflects in glass doors.

Errors in geography 

At the beginning in Kiev (Ukraine), they enter an agency to find Uri and on the street behind them is a truck that says "Telekom Srbija", which is the largest telecommunications company in Serbia.
The power plant is shown as being located very close to the town of Pripyat and visible in plain sight. In reality there's a distance of roughly 4 kilometers (2,5 miles) to the reactor from the closest buildings that visitors are allowed in. Also, almost everything but the uppermost parts of the buildings and the chimney of the plant is obscured by the vast forest southeast of Pripyat even when viewed from the tallest building in town.

When the group is in London in the beginning of the film, Amanda say's they're at the Tower of London. But if you look behind her, you can clearly see that it is not the Tower of London but in fact Tower Bridge.

EDIT: The Tower of London is right next to Tower Bridge, so if the bridge is behind them, it's accurate that they would be just the other side of the walls of the Tower of London.

Factual errors 

There is one nearly completed and one barely started cooling tower that was to be used for Units 5 and 6 of Chernobyl. The movie shows 3 or 4 completed cooling towers, which is not correct.
When the subtitles indicate Uri is speaking Russian, he is actually speaking Ukranian.
