Couldn't refuse: Lithuania buys electricity from BelNPP


On February 5, 2021, a meeting of the National Security and Defense Committee (NSGK) of the Lithuanian Seimas took place. Parliamentarians and officials were looking into the situation in the country's energy sector. During the event, the head of the local Ministry of Energy Dainius Kreivis made a speech.


The Minister informed the participants that Vilnius continues to actively buy electricity from Minsk. He noted that over the past 10 days, the country received 154 million kWh of electricity through the Lithuanian-Belarusian bridge. At the same time, 50% or 77 million kW / h are products of the Belarusian nuclear power plant, and the remaining 50% came from Russia.

We seem to buy this electricity on the stock exchange in Latvia, but it does not even cross the Latvian border, since it goes directly to us from Belarus. Lithuania has a very large electricity deficit, we use it and pay for it

- explained the head of the department.

In money it is almost 4 million euros. If this continues further, then 120 million euros will be typed in a year. This is how much will be paid for the further construction of the BelNPP. It is important to prevent this so that the second, and possibly the third of its power units are not financed from our side.

- stressed the chief power engineer of Lithuania.

In turn, the chairman of NSGK Laurynas Kasciunas added that the electricity produced in Belarus makes up almost 12% of the energy balance of Lithuania.

This is 11 million euros per month. It can be stated that Lithuanian consumers pay for BelNPP

- the head of NSGK summed up the meeting.

Thus, Lithuania buys electricity on paper from Latvia, but in reality from the Russian Federation and Belarus, which it regularly accuses of doing something. Note that the new government in Lithuania has been working for about two months (from December 11, 2020). The next NSGK meeting is due on February 10th. At the same time, everyone in Vilnius is well aware that Belarusian electricity is now helping Lithuanians to pass the heating season normally. Lithuania simply could not give up electricity and disrupt its energy balance.

Therefore, they will not start talking about the energy blockade of Belarus in Lithuania until the end of the cold weather. Then, before the new heating season, talks will again begin about the refusal of a small, but very proud nation from "totalitarian" electricity and demands to close the BelNPP will rise.

    This is how lyactric it is. You cannot pass through customs. This means that Lukashenka's agony will drag on for a long time. There is still a long way to the level of Venezuela, but even Venezuela lives like that. And three million refugees are not a problem there. Although if the people from Belarus run away, the EU will be glad to honest and hardworking people.

              We found something to surprise, as I know, throughout the country, did not delve into it, qualified personnel earn so much here. Come take a look. As for "unqualified", the concept is rather loose. Everybody gets it differently, including from you. If you subtract about 600-200 euros from these 300 euros, then 26 thousand rubles does not seem like a fantastic amount. Moreover, we still need something to eat, and I suspect your products are also in euros. And yet, calm me down and tell me that the salaries are indicated "clean", that is, on hand after taxes. Or not? smile

              Subsidies have nothing to do with this. Subsidies are everywhere and everywhere. Or mate. capital is not it?

              Even as they have. yes Russia pays maternity capital to its citizens, by the way, it is not included in wages and is not taken into account.
              You get handouts from outside Brussels. Without them you are hicks.

              RF. The rate of extinction of Russia reached a record in 14 years

              Looked at the link. The truth is, what does this have to do with subsidies and salaries is not clear request This is according to the principle - and you have blacks lynched?

              the natural decline in the population of the Russian Federation reached 574,8 thousand people

              For 11 months, according to statistics, 1,881 million people died in Russia - 229,7 thousand more than a year earlier. More than 81% of excess mortality "is attributable to COVID and the consequences of coronavirus disease," Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said on Monday

              Yes, there are problems with the birth rate in Russia, the demographic hole has not yet been passed. This is not news and no one is hiding it. If you have noticed, almost half of this is the coronavirus and its consequences.
              These are probably huge numbers for you. For you, the excess of death rate over birth rate of 100 people is already 0,3%
              https://countrymeters.info/ru/Estonia

              But our population is supported by people coming from abroad. People just flee from your "plague barracks". As soon as the subsidies run out, the last Estonian leaving will close the door and blow out the candle, there will be no electricity by that time.

                Each has its own truth. The more bitter the disappointment later.
                I'm used to using official data.
                Average salary in
                RF In 2019, the sample analysis covered more than 101 thousand enterprises. The average salary is 47.
                Estonia The average salary in Estonia in 2019 was 1419 euros.
                Estonia's population is growing due to immigration.
                The population of Estonia grew by 2017 people in 3499 due to the migration balance.
                According to preliminary data, as of January 1, 2018, the population of Estonia was 1 people, which is 318 more than a year ago.

                According to the initial data of the Statistics Estonia, as of 1 January 2020, 1 people lived in Estonia, which is 328 more than a year earlier.
                You're not arguing that the Finns live richer? and here is such persistence. You need to get rid of megalomania. And go for quality.
                In Russia, what is it like to dream? The gross domestic product (GDP) of Estonia in 2017 increased by 4,9% compared to 2016, according to data from the Department of Statistics.

                  So what? Your expenses are also in euros and they differ from Russian ones. As soon as subsidies stop, write to compare hi

                  The year is 2021, and you are feeding me data for 2019. I gave you the data for the last year, you went into negative territory in terms of population and this is just the beginning. In the wake of subsidies, the population will also dissolve.

                  You're not arguing that the Finns live richer? and here is such persistence. You need to get rid of megalomania. And go for quality.

                  The Finns live on their own, you are subsidized spinogs and hicks. Admit it at last, where does such persistence come from? smile And you tell me about megalomania? winked

                    Favorite answer to this fact. Imagine you don’t know how to deal with money, but I can, and it’s not the size of the salary that matters. The toughest fact is motorization.
                    How many cars are there per capita in Russia?
                    According to Rosstat, in 2019 there are 381 passenger cars per 1000 people in Russia. With this indicator in the ranking of countries in the world in terms of the level of motorization of the population, our country is in 48th place.

                    According to the agency "Autostat", as of July 1, 2020, there are 309 passenger cars per thousand inhabitants in Russia.
                    The level of motorization in Russia is half that of the developed world powers and even some states of the former USSR.
                    1. Estonia - 566 (2018)
                    Hungry people are you.
                    Here you will have something to chew at the expense of our "prices"
                    If in Estonia there was a possible failure in the population balance in 2019, then in the Russian Federation it is constant and every year.

                        And what does Abkhazia have to do with it? Do we have an EU-style agreement with her? Compare with proud Georgians, are they better? Are Euro-American vassals thriving?
                        And in general, about the vassals, you would be more careful ... the European tradition is such, pragmatic ... if today a pig is cared for and cherished, this does not mean that it will always be like this, for joy it may end up in the center of the table ... in apples. In general, watch out for the Poles, as soon as they run from the EU, dump immediately, otherwise it will be too late.

                        This is an excuse for freeloaders and backers. Collect debts and there at least the grass does not grow. Russia quite lives on its own. The volume of gold and foreign exchange reserves exceeds external debt, it can be repaid at any time.

                        With regard to Germany, yes. Regarding the RF, no. Estonia is ahead.

                        Ahead of the whole planet? What's this? Will you talk about the level of salaries again? It's just the difference in exchange rates, you don't even have your own and it does not depend on you at all.

                        Abkhazia is an example of how the Russian Federation takes care of its own people.

                        And Georgia is an example of what? smile
                        Why would you go so far for examples? Ukraine is closer, a perfect example. After all, you support it with the whole "civilized" world laughing

                        Estonia does not pose as something special.

                        But you do it yes

                        Over and over.

                        What will you give? Or will you work on the panel? sad

                        We are the most, the most, but in fact, die without outside. Even without the same China. And China will live peacefully without you.

                        And to justify? repeat While it just looks like a tantrum winked

      ... If you subtract about 600-200 euros from these 300 euros, then 26 thousand rubles does not look like a fantastic amount.

      Where does this data come from? Although there is nothing to compare with. You don't say a word about the RF. That is why Estonia is still better.
      Today Business FM - a scientist woman complains that she does not have a salary of 25. Your GDP clucked - "I ordered scientists to pay double the average regional!"
      Throughout the Russian Federation through this. Manual control. I want to give I want to not give.

        Where is such data from?

        Remember I showed you a video, a woman there told about salaries in Estonia? Run through her channel, there is also about a communal apartment, I really do not want to look.

        Although there is nothing to compare with. You don't say a word about the RF.

        I can reassure you, I have 3-4 thousand a month. You can search for statistics by yourself, Yandex to help hi

        That is why Estonia is still better.

        Every sandpiper praises its own swamp.

        Today Business FM - a scientist woman complains that she does not have a salary of 25.

        If I'm not mistaken 35 or not?

        Your GDP clucked -

        This is how you talk about your Kersti, but here you can grab a piece of bread with an oar sad

        I ordered to pay scientists double the average regional! "

        You see, you call everyone a dictator. And he is really just a bow. Don't worry, they'll figure it out.

        Throughout the Russian Federation through this. Manual control. I want to give I want to not give.

        Is everything different with you? Remind me somehow, I'll pick up interesting examples about you, but then. Good night hi

          I judge by the statistics of the state. And if a woman is missing, then maybe she needs to learn how to work better with money. Any example can be found to taste.
          We have a house next door where they pay for 250-300, so there is a new house and huge apartments. I never have more than 100 euros.
          Summer or winter? And here you are all in a bunch of me.
          Watch OTR TV RF channel. There are many Russians who will share with you how to live 15 -000
          And Putin himself took into account my example with a scientist from Novosibirsk.
          Oh, poor Estonians do not have enough communal apartments, but have more cars than Russians can afford. So it turns out that that scientist receives half my pension in half. She will definitely work. Or fades from the Russian Federation. Although for what? Something like slavery turns out.

            Vladyest, there is one magic word Donations
            You are not praising your own achievements, but the generosity of Brussels. But you didn’t succeed in the quality of beggars, you are far from the Polish gentry. They hold the title of beloved wife firmly.

              Vladyest, there is one magic word DOTATION

              And again, why are they used better in Estonia than in other EU countries? Although lazy, but you and those who read us (more likely for their sake) will have to. This money is used for the priority development of the state infrastructure, energy and capital construction. Aid from the EU has already been reduced, but this did not in any way affect the growth rate of Estonia. The EU's goal is to reach 75% of the European average for new members. The new USSR is represented by the EU. But they don't run out of it, they want to go into it.
              And no matter how you puffed, progress cannot be stopped.
              Labor productivity. Oddly enough, it is also higher in Estonia than in the Russian Federation. This is also for DOTS?)))

              Good luck along the way. good How to reach out and stop needing help write yes

              The new USSR is represented by the EU. But they don't run out of it, they want to go into it.

              Do the British agree with you? Yes, and they do not take it for a long time, the Turks how many years and the vestibule are not remind? We will modestly keep silent about Ukraine and Georgia laughing

              And no matter how you puffed, progress cannot be stopped.

              Oh, this awful Russia with its nuclear reactors and vaccines, it interferes so much with progressive Estonia in .... but actually in what? what What progress are you talking about? smile

              Labor productivity. Oddly enough, it is also higher in Estonia than in the Russian Federation. This is also for DOTS?)))

              Well, of course not, you can't buy such things for money. request It's just statistics winked
              You will probably be surprised, but your productivity is higher than in Germany, which you are striving for. laughing Maybe it's time for you to stop in the attack on the world level? smile You are already more hardworking than the Japanese belay And you will never believe African American blacks picking cotton around the clock on the plantations of Democrats, compared to you, they are just lazy laughing
              OECD statistics, statistics Q4 2020: Estonia - 1,125, Germany - 0,986, Japan - 0,951, USA - 1,054.
              https://data.oecd.org/lprdty/labour-productivity-forecast.htm

              Labor productivity is GDP divided by the number of employed people. It simply means that you have relatively few people involved in creating your GDP.
              In numbers, it seems beautiful, but in reality ... Tell you how the GDP is obtained in the US financial sector? You can of course be proud of this, hang a poster on the street. I wish you success in your work good
