Sergey Kondratiev, Deputy Head of the Economic Department of the Institute for Energy and Finance, commented to Baltnews on the prospects for exporting electricity from Belarus to the Baltic countries.
Sergei Kondratiev told Baltnews, why it is difficult for Lithuania to come to an agreement with Latvia and Estonia on boycotting the Belarusian nuclear power plant (BelNPP) in Ostrovets.
According to him, in order to achieve a serious full-fledged boycott of electricity that could potentially be generated at the Belarusian nuclear power plant, the Baltic states will at least have to abandon any commercial transactions with Russian and Belarusian companies.
"Perhaps, even in a broader and more strict sense, it is necessary to separate from the energy system of the UES (Unified Energy System) or, at least, to ensure that Latvia and Estonia refuse to buy electricity from Russia, perhaps, with the exception of electricity generated in the Kaliningrad region, and in Belarus," Kondratiev said.
