Despite all the attempts of the Lithuanian authorities to block the supply of electricity to the Republic of Belarus, it is still supplied to the Baltic consumers

Lithuania cannot give up energy from the Belarusian nuclear power plant

According to Pravda.ru, despite the fact that the Lithuanian government has set up a special committee to restrict the flow of energy from the Belarusian power plant, explaining this by the threat of possible safety problems in the reactor of Astravets NPP, problems with the separation of the Belarusian electricity from the total flow and its subsequent blockage remain.

“Existing efforts to block the supply of energy produced by the Ostrovets plant to Lithuania are not working”, –  the local Council of Ministers said in a statement released on Wednesday.

But “proud and independent” Lithuania is not giving up, with its Energy Minister Dainius Kreivis stating “the need to work towards a complete blockade of the plant, as well as increasing Lithuanian energy independence and grid security”.

For this “good and noble” goal, a group headed by the country’s prime minister has been assembled, which will reportedly assess the safety and integrity of the Lithuanian energy system as well as “measures to reduce the threats posed by the Ostrovets NPP”.
