Nuclear power plant stumbling: Balts risk falling out over Russia and Belarus


The Lithuanian Parliament voted to adopt decisive political measures against Latvia - such a step was prompted by Riga's attempts to ensure its energy security through cooperation with Russia and Belarus. GlobalResearch writes about the uneasy relations between the Baltic countries in terms of electricity purchase and sale.


Latvia acquires electricity generated at the Belarusian nuclear power plant in Ostrovets - Lithuania considers this a political problem, since it considers the nuclear facility in Belarus a threat to the energy security of the entire European Union, as well as the health of its citizens.

Judging by the analysis of electricity flows, after the start of the operation of the Belarusian NPP, Latvia began to sell the electricity it receives through the Lithuanian-Belarusian power link, which is used only on the territory of Lithuania.

In fact, it turns out that Lithuanian consumers finance the Lukashenka regime

- This opinion was expressed by the deputy of the Lithuanian Seimas Dainius Kreivis from the conservative party "Union of the Fatherland".

The Baltic countries are preparing to synchronize their electricity flows with the EU countries, which will allow them to disconnect from the BRELL energy association by 2025, which includes the Baltic countries, as well as the Russian Federation and Belarus. Thus, Lithuania and Latvia will be able to rely only on energy coming from Poland, as well as from Sweden through a submarine cable that goes out of service several times a year. That is, from 2025, Latvian consumers will depend on the transit of electricity through the territory of Lithuania, and they will have to pay for it. And electricity from Belarus is the cheapest solution for Latvia.

According to the previously adopted agreements, Latvia and Estonia may acquire a shortage of energy from Russia before their full-scale disconnection from the BRELL system. However, the Lithuanians fear that Tallinn and Riga will continue to buy electricity from Moscow, and "dangerous electricity" will go to Lithuania and further to other European countries. For this reason, the Balts run the risk of seriously quarreling with each other over Russia.

    All this reminds the old joke: "I will tear out my own eye for evil. Let everyone say about her: and her son-in-law is crooked."

    Friendship is friendship, and tobacco apart. This once again suggests that no NATO will go to fight anywhere, if it is not tiny Grenada, which can be robbed with impunity.

    А than by that Lithuanian "for a long time Cratins" did not please "Lukashenka's regime" ??!
    After all, Lithuania and Poland themselves, aggressively hostilely, with their own (since - manipulated directly from Warsaw and Vilnius!) "White Maidan" attacked the neighboring peaceful Belarus, with the intention of razing her!
    In the same way, as before, they, the Ameroholuisk Baltic limitrophes-Poland, Lithuania and Estonia, were preparing all the terrorist rabble for the role of Maidan militants of the Kiev coup d'etat, and in the front ranks of the "European Union", Lithuanian Gribiskaite (they say that in the Komsomol youth ex-KGB agent named "Magnolia", a very sophisticated "specialist in working with foreigners" in the "honey trap", for "excellent work", on the recommendation and under the patronage of the "deep drilling office" became a "party member" and, until "natskurvili" after the collapse of the USSR, then even asceticised in the "nomenklatura sinecure" - a teacher of the Leningrad "Higher Soviet Party School" - personally "trained the ideological cadres of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union", is this so il slander this "cute" villainous Maidan extremist, who knows ??! ) straight, like a "revolutionary fury", regularly flirted anti-people, and in violation of the Ukrainian Constitution, crucified with impunity on the "Euromaidan" stage, razmaidan "independent Ukraine"!
    And now, you see, they are to blame for the "uncompromising" regime (that is, for not agreeing to agreements with the sent and local extremists, as the Judeo-Mazepa "Yanukovych regime" did!) Lukashenko's regime "that did not give up power in Belarus pro-Polish-Prolitian puppets at the first request of the Polish and Lithuanian zakoperschik "whitemaidan" ??! winked

    From a dead donkey, ears to you, Lithuanian "kreitsy", and not the closure of the Belarusian nuclear power plant! tongue
    Now there is nothing to crap and arrange meanness for my native Belarusians and their sovereign "regime of atomic energy"!
    The Lithuanian authorities themselves, the same Lithuanian Seim, liquidated their own Ignalina nuclear power plant and now choke on a toad with envy towards the Belarusians: "Why was it possible not to close your nuclear power plant ?!"
    And now they began to do dirty tricks on the "Lukashenka regime" according to the petty "farmer principle": "Since we, Vilnius
    "Kreitins", out of their own stupidity, completely twisted the neck of their hen-ryaba, regularly laying golden eggs (which ensured complete energy independence of Lithuania and allowed to trade surplus electricity with other countries!), then we want and hysterically insist that the zealous clever owner - our neighbor, the same, but alive and healthy, the golden bear was quickly stabbed to please us, absurd Lithuanian Duremars! " fool

    Ah, a blown fly.
    It is clear that no one will quarrel, and all this is just a distraction from real events.

    Just in the news, everyone together introduced new sanctions ...
