The Czech Republic risks losing both heat and light due to disagreements with Russia

Many Czechs forget that they get the bulk of their electricity and gas thanks to Russia. That is why a member of the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Republic (lower house of parliament) Lubomir Volny recently said that “Russia brings us light and warmth,” writes the online edition Insomniac Resurrected.

The deputy's words took on concrete meaning in a situation when Prague was gripped by hysteria over the construction of a new power unit at the Dukovany NPP. At the same time, the Czech Republic really needs electricity.

Now Rosatom's application is under threat due to trumped-up accusations. According to the "conspiracy theory" recently invented by the Czech authorities, the Russians Petrov and Boshirov, with an interval of three months, blew up two ammunition depots 7 years ago in the village of Vrbetice. Therefore, this energy project is likely to face the same fate as the construction of power units at the Temelin NPP.

The Americans have already reported many times that they do not like the option of another Russian power unit appearing in the Czech Republic and have tried to transfer Czech nuclear power plants to their own fuel. Washington somehow imposed its version of TVEL on Prague, but serious technical problems arose and the Czechs immediately returned to Russian products. Perhaps the US is trying to undermine the economy countries of Eastern Europe, since this is observed not only in the Czech Republic and is of a systemic nature.

There is a hope that the Czech government will nevertheless find an alternative to Rosatom and new power units will appear in the country. But, most likely, this will not happen. The explanation is simple. Currently, only Russians have the appropriate technologysuitable for Dukovan and Temelina. It is difficult to say whether the Americans can offer something similar, and even for the same money. European bidders are even more hopeless than Americans. Koreans, of course, command respect, but they are on the other side of the earth.

In the end, the current government of the Czech Republic out of cowardice will abandon any ambitions to build new nuclear facilities in the country, and in the fall it will lose the elections due to the fact that the people are already fed up with quarantine measures due to the pandemic. At the same time, the people who will replace them in the government will not be interested in any construction at all.

It's funny that the liberal-democratic system that replaced the communist one turned out to be completely incapable of building nuclear power plants. I would like to remind you that both operating nuclear power plants in the country were created under the communists. As a result, the Czechs will have to close their nuclear power plants in the same way as coal-fired power plants. After that, they will only have to import electricity.

The Americans are trying their best to squeeze Russia out of Europe, but other countries are also interested in keeping the Czech Republic without generating capacities, since then they will become suppliers. Note that gas from Russia perfectly generates electricity in neighboring Germany, but Prague deliberately runs the risk of losing both heat and electricity due to disagreements with Moscow. This is unfortunate. Surely the aforementioned Lubomyr Volny will not be included in the new parliament. A few months ago, he was expelled from his native party, and the Czechs now vote for the political forces, and not for individuals, the media concluded.

    Why are Czechs better than Bulgarians? The same slaves. The owner said no, so no. This is democracy yes
    Let them turn to the French, they know a lot about construction together with the Germans. good
    The Finns are building the Olkiluoto Nuclear Power Plant reactor, they are probably happy laughing

    In 2003 there was a tender, in 2005 a building permit was issued, the launch of the power unit was expected in 2013, but something went wrong ...
    In 2014, it became known that they would launch in 2018, the cost increased from 3,2 billion euros to 8,5 billion euros. For the construction company, a loss of 3,9 billion euros.
    They say it will be completed soon, perhaps this year, the final cost has not been announced laughing

    And it looks like their fuel is wonderful, at the operating reactor in 2016, a shutdown due to a defect. Some radioactive material got into the reactor water. He is now slightly phonetic. Finns are tough guys, and that's not a problem for them.

      You forgot to add that if Rosatom wins, a significant part of the funds allocated for the construction will be used by Czech enterprises as contractors for a wide range of products, including the reactors themselves. Rosatom's victory is economically beneficial for them, including as an engine of the country's economy (taxes, jobs, etc.). Now other people's "uncles" will come (if they come) and simply take two prices out of the country. They will not share.

        The addition is of course correct yes But why such details? Does anyone care about the benefits and economic interests of slaves? It was the same with the Bulgarians.

    It looks like the Americans will lay an atomic mine in Europe. Chernobyl will work on other batteries.

    Fathers Light, yes hussite with them, the Czechs. Let them eat what their eyes bought - democracy with the right atoms. And there is much to offer energy resources. Well, I don't want to cry about the fate of the Czechs.

    Russia in all its glory, you will not buy lottery tickets (conflict with Russia), we will turn off the gas. That is why few people want to deal with such a Russia, which is more expensive for themselves.

      Friendship with Russia is comfortable and relatively inexpensive.

      Those who do not think about the future of their peoples are in conflict with our country.

    That the Bulgarians, that the Czechs - one gang-leyka, the same tobaccos, like the rest of Europeans, who look into the mouth of their Sherkhan (Biden) and catch his every word and rush to distill to carry out his orders. During the Second World War, the Czechs provided 30% of the Reich with weapons that were used against the Red Army. And the Bulgarians are better? The Russian Empire saved them from destruction from the Ottoman yoke, and they "in gratitude" fought two world wars against the Russian Empire and against the USSR! Now they are in one bundle with the Americans against Russia !!! We don't need such friends, they can stick a knife in the back of any Russian at any time !!!

    And as a result, the Americans will undertake to supply electricity to the Czech Republic ....... IN BUCKETS !!!

    Yes, compote in your mouth!
    They do not want normal relations with the Russian Federation - no need to impose!
    Let the nuclear power plants build them, the chukhans will have a bag of problems for themselves!
    Nuclear waste for reprocessing Do not collect.
    Chukhans will have to bury them or give them to us, For Money, Considerable.
    And if the fuel were ours and the nuclear power plant too, then the waste would be taken away for free.
    The Chukhans bought into the hysteria set up by the Amy and the British.
    It is necessary to declare a boycott for 2-3 years.
    When they become unbearable, they will crawl on their knees.
    And yet yes - contracts for Oil, Gas and Electricity - do not enter into contracts with them!
    Let it be 2-5 times more expensive to buy from neighbors, Germans, for example.
    Nemchura does not go to pro markets - discounts, loans, etc. nonsense.
    It is only we, Kind, the national Good, we distribute cheaply, often at a loss.
    Enough !
