According to the Lithuanian parliamentarian, the launch of the Belarusian nuclear power plant will strike a blow to the energy security of Europe. In order to prevent this, Lithuania should with all its strength confront this “threatening project” and take up the strengthening of the energy security of the Baltic states. In addition, Vilnius should force the European Union to stop ignoring the danger that comes from the station.
If Belarus implements its plans to launch the power plant this fall, it will be a huge blow to the whole of Europe, and we must make great efforts to counter this menacing project.
- he said.
Earlier, Lithuania complained to the IAEA about the danger posed by nuclear power plants, but international experts said that the station is being built in accordance with international safety standards.
It should be noted that Vilnius has repeatedly complained to various international agencies, wishing to stop the construction of the Belarusian NPP. Most of all, Lithuania is not satisfied with the choice of a site for its construction. The fact is that the station was built 50 kilometers from Vilnius.
BelNPP - nuclear power plant of type AES-2006. Two power units can total up to 2400 megawatts. The first unit of the nuclear power plant is scheduled for commissioning in the 2019 year, the second - in the 2020 year.
