The kinetic regime of the collective interaction between neutrinos and electron plasma waves is described via the coupled kinetic equations for neutrinos and electrons. It is shown that neutrinos can Landau damp electron plasma waves. In dense stellar plasmas, this novel mechanism can play a significant role as an additional and much stronger turbulent plasma cooling process.
