Belarus’ nuclear energy ban endorsed by Lithuanian parliament

A proposal by Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda on how to block electricity imports from the Belarus’ nuclear plant has been endorsed by the Lithuanian parliament on Tuesday.

Under the amendments, companies will not get permits to import electricity from Belarus, and a government commission will be able to suspend licenses if an importer is deemed a threat to national security. In 2017, the Seimas recognised the Belarusian Astravyets nuclear plant as unsafe and posing threat to Lithuania’s national security, environment and public health, and adopted a law banning electricity purchases from from unsafe power plants.
