Today, participants in the round table on Ostrovetskaya nuclear power plant in Lithuania Seimas adopted an appeal to the head of Russia and the IAEA to pay attention to the threat of the Belarusian nuclear power plant.

As a result, an appeal was made to the detailed list of possible dangerous consequences signed on March 15 the Russian-Belarusian agreement on the construction of the Belarusian nuclear power plant.

"Such resolutions, appeals to certain European institutions really need, especially as we see what the tragic consequences of the use of a nuclear power plant. This felt and Belarus after the Chernobyl accident, which resulted in 23% of Belarus is contaminated area. So what we see is very seriously.
Of course, technology improved, but no one can be fully protected from the possibility of accidents at nuclear power plants. In Lithuania are also concerned about the fact that, since the planned Ostrovetskaya plant will use water from the pool Vyal-Niemen, we can go to the radioactive water, and the whole ekasystyma Baltic Sea is threatened. Not to mention the people, both in Lithuania and Belarus.
Should apply to the European institutions, which issue permits for the construction of facilities such as nuclear power plants in the border area, and if it is ignored, and then apply sanctions, since the atom does not recognize borders, "- said Petras Luomanas.
