Balts suffer final defeat in the fight against BelAES


It seems that Lithuania is suffering a final defeat in the fight against BelAES. The already uneven scales are now outweighed by the mighty China, which has sided with Minsk. But is it worth blowing fanfare about this in Moscow?


Recall that Lithuania has a difficult history of relations with nuclear energy. Vilnius inherited its own Ignalina nuclear power plant from the "invaders." A small country, having received the "independence", could live well, using cheap electricity for its needs and selling its excess. But after joining the European Union, the fate of the Soviet nuclear power plant was a foregone conclusion.

Lobbyists of EU energy companies, who could not compete with cheap electricity, forced Lithuania to abandon its own nuclear power plant on the pretext of its alleged danger. The phrases ominously sounded "Chernobyl-type nuclear power plant." Ignalina NPP was closed, domestic electricity prices immediately began to rise. Alternatively, Lithuania was offered to build a new Fukushima-type station in American and Japanese technology. How “safe” they are, it became known much later.

The project of the Lithuanian nuclear power plant eventually quarreled Vilnius with all its neighbors. The "Sisters" delayed the process, and Poland even came up with the idea of ​​the need to build its own nuclear power plant. And here Minsk agreed with Rosatom about BelAES. Lithuanian authorities sharply greeted the project with hostility. Firstly, the nuclear power plant is being built just 50 kilometers from the country's capital Vilnius. Secondly, being put into operation, it completely kills the not-yet-built Lithuanian station of the “Fukushima type”.

Unable to convince the world community of the dangers of BelAES, Vilnius imposed a legislative ban on the purchase of electricity from Minsk. True, how Lithuanians will separate Belarusian electrons from Russian ones in networks is not entirely clear. And here China entered the game.

The Chinese state energy company Power China, represented by its North China Power Engineering (NCPE) division, will sell Belarusian electricity in the Baltic states. It is alleged that Beijing issued a $ 5 billion loan to Minsk under this case. Considering political weight and economic power of China, it is easy to guess that the Chinese will bend little Lithuania. But is it worth rejoicing at such an outcome of events in Russia?

The expansion of China into the post-Soviet space is clearly demonstrated. It turns out that for quite some time now, the Lithuanian Institute of Energy Networks, located in Kaunas, is completely controlled by Beijing, and only the Chinese are sitting on its board. The activity of China in the Belarusian direction is also alarming. It is widely known that loans issued by the Chinese often turn into natural debt traps, as a result of which the infrastructure of the “natives” often migrates into the hands of the Celestial Empire.

The “multi-vector nature” of Minsk’s policy can play a cruel joke with him, and in the end Moscow will have to rake all this.

    Balts suffer final defeat in the fight against BelAES

    Well, not smart. laughing Something from the Baltic States there is no river of emigrants to Belarus. And to Russia too. I am generally silent about Ukraine. How so ?! For years we have been "fighting" for ours in the Baltics. And from there no! Well, there are no emigrants from there. Maybe a few. Are there statistics on obtaining citizenship from the Baltic States?

      And where did the population go? After all, not only in Poland, to harvest apples. The same employees of the Ignalina NPP moved to Leningrad and Novovoronezh. Nowadays, the fashion for teaching children on “distance learning” has started - Lithuanian schoolchildren study online in St. Petersburg and Moscow schools.

      And you ask for the conditions for obtaining citizenship of Russia and Ireland, and compare. Ours from the Baltics go to the British Isles to work, no permits are required - a notification, after three or five years of living without claims from law enforcement agencies, you will receive citizenship if you wish. The standard of living cannot be compared with Russia. I rushed to my relatives to go to Russia: buy a visa, at the border of Shmon (border guards and customs really want money), upon arrival you need to register at the FSB, and this must go to another city, because the regional government is there, when leaving there, to withdraw from registration (and again everyone wants money). We got a visa, come and live. The main thing is to leave the country within the time period specified in the visa. It was required to extend the visa, the mother-in-law became ill, with the help from the doctor the local government did it in 10 minutes, added two weeks. So the question is: why do not go to Russia? Are you waiting for us? Are you glad to see us? Understand first what you want.

        Peters, I'll start with the last one:
        - visas INSIDE there is no Yesov conglomerate, to all the rest - there is still trouble (well, except for amers - there are no problems at all - for sure)
        - Shmon of citizens of the Russian Federation at the border control, in the Esovskoye it means - the same, for, the border is the border.
        - Regarding registration with the "federals" - are you a seaman who is a member of the crew of a non-military vessel of a foreign state? Well then, you ONLY get a MARK at the border control (and only then do you interact with the FSB unit). Everything else is bullshit.
        - if there was a FACT of extortion of Bribe at the place of registration in the migration registration authority and you did NOT NOTIFY the authorities, then you are an accomplice to the crime under Art. 291 of the Criminal Code (regardless of citizenship).
        - Regarding the standard of living in Russia - not everything is the same everywhere. Even in one area, the standard of living of citizens varies. Even in one locality. And YOUR country in this does NOT differ from the Russian Federation.
        - "yours from the Baltic part" of the conglomerate, which was called the EU, go to the British Isles to work ONLY as long as the British Isles are part of this formation (until the "islands" are separated) and BECAUSE you are part of this whole misunderstanding.
        - citizenship? ... strange ... why do you need this? You already feel quite well THERE - leaving for the "British Isles" to work ... because. You have no work in your homeland. And there is no work, because no one is going to develop YOU, you are a BUFFER between Russia and the West (the same is done from the former Ukrainian SSR). And the buffer is made in case of war - fighting. And places of hostilities DO NOT DEVELOP - THERE IS NO ECONOMIC SENSE! Why invest in places where EVERYTHING will be swept away in the first hours of hostilities? Therefore, for the rest of the West, you are just territory, and you do not want to understand this. But their understanding does not interest them in principle. You are white negroes to them ... and so are everyone who does not belong to them. Do you still live with illusions about belonging to the "hail on the hill"? Well then, you are twofold stupid.

    A rather strange leap from BelAES to immigrants, don’t you?

      Apparently, this meant the absence of a large national business in the energy sector .... China just occupied the void ...
      It is always better to control infrastructure facilities along the Great Silk Road ...

      I find it. But here you will not believe. So we are worried about BelAES. So we worry that we can’t eat quietly. laughing And the topic I touched on would be much more interesting to the Russian layman.

        Observer, where does the topic you touched on? Or are you the author of the article? Or do you have an exclusivity by which you spit on a topic, involving others in your reasoning? On the topic of the article is what? Or are you going to impose your liberalism here again?

      Sergei, and he is generally strange ... Either he worries about the economy of the Russian Federation, or about the "Baltic emigration" .... At the same time, having an image of the DPR flag on his avatar ... Only Arkharovtsy are stranger.

    - Yes, it will have to ... - But Russia itself has even more Chinese problems ... - But there is no one to rake them today ... - Yes, and the next generation of Russians will get (these problems will also increase exponentially). .. - their parents "made friends" with them ... with their "friendship" with China ...
    - My advantages to the author ...

      Irochka, you would be a little self-organized, or something ... And then your text in a "ragged style" to read - brainwash ... You already write somehow more adequately, otherwise, without finishing one sentence or thought, "break" to another ... Your flow is difficult to follow ...

    The Baltic states have long scattered across Europe, and instead of the Baltic states, Europe offers African refugees to live there - but they also do not want to live in such a hole.
    Without Russia, the Baltic barking jackals are still END.
    And only small Russian thieves and earned cultural intelligentsia flee from Russia to the Baltic states, and large Russian Thieves flee to London or to the same Europe.
