Sergey Kondratiev, Deputy Head of the Economic Department of the Institute for Energy and Finance gave comments to the electronic portal Vzglyad.ru on the joint work of the energy systems of Russia and the Baltic states:
«… The Belarusian nuclear power plant is a new station, import of electricity from this station can be carried out within the next 30–40 years. And the Khmelnytsky NPP is not new, so how long and how large can be imported from it is a big question. If there is a loss of thermal generation in Ukraine, which is in a very difficult situation, then it will not have the resources to export this electricity, it will be required for the domestic market," Sergey Kondratiev explains.
Finally, Ukraine itself can become an importer of Belarusian electricity. In truth, Ukraine also wants to integrate with the energy networks of Europe. «It is not completely clear how, but if Ukraine embarks on this path, then Belarus can become such an energy peninsula in general. But this will be a different situation," Kondratiev says.
