New Nuclear Ambitions Of Belarus: cooperation with Poland in the energy deliveries to the EU countries

"Belarus plans to introduce the first unit of a nuclear power plant into service in 2018. I think we could successfully cooperate in the energy supply to the European Union and the Polish side could take advantage of this power or transit it to the European Union", Prime Minister of Belarus Andrei Kabyakau stated at the meeting with Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers, the Minister of Development and Finance of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki.

Thus (charter97.org/en/news/2016/10/25/228925/), Belarus hopes to sell energy of an unsafe NPP to the EU countries.

Well, here's just all you ought to know about the 'unsafe' NPP in Astravets: theguardian.com/world/2016/aug/09/belarus-under-fire-for-dangerous-errors-at-nuclear-plant

That very fact that Belarussian authorities are still counting to get Europeans involved into their nuclear energy business is amazing. Buying energy from those who puts Europe on the threshold of another manmade disaster is like shooting ourselves in the foot. Hope we are to expect a very strong response straightening it out that there is no compromise on nuclear power producing in Belarus.

This post is worth responding to because there doesn't seem to be a very high awareness amongst the Polish public of the continuing horrors in Belarus as a result of the Chernobyl disaster. Do people know about the children of Chernobyl who continue to be born with extreme deformities and congenital heart defects? There's even a medical condition known as Chernobyl Heart. Six thousand born every year in Ukraine with this condition. If anybody out there would like to get involved in helping, here's a link:

Well, here's just all you ought to know about the 'unsafe' NPP in Astravets

The Astravets Nuclear Power Station has just switched off. The Belarus authorities claim it was an automatic shut-down, though this does seem a bit of a coincidence given the issues there and threats to reduce power supply to European grids. It is on former Polish territory, 20km from the Lithuanian border.

There's nothing (currently) showing in western media about it, not even via google. I learnt about it from here:
wiadomosci.onet.pl/swiat/bialorus-nagle-wylaczenie-elektrowni-jadrowej-w-ostrowcu/emz60qr

Worth mentioning that it shut down automatically once before, when it was new.

There's not much on Twitter about it. A few worried comments and this statement from a Belarus diaspora group in Sweden:
"The first power unit of Astravets NPP is disconnected from the grid by automatic equipment again. Diagnostics and analysis of the operation of technological systems is carried out.

The Russian-built Astravets NPP is located 20 km from EU border."

Worth mentioning that Astravets is the power station at the heart of the worrying reports several months ago:

After an alleged incident at the Belarusian nuclear plant in Ostrovets earlier this month, radiation monitoring stations across the country went dark,

Poland and Belarus are wise. I am proud of my brethren.

Now they've cut the oil off from going through the Druzhba pipeline to Germany.

It was to an extent expected, however it's a significant escalation.

Aaaaand....there is more as SPIEGEL reports today (Google translate)

Gazprom does not fill up German gas storage facilities

spiegel.de/wirtschaft/unternehmen/gazprom-fuellt-deutsche-gasspeicher-nicht-auf-a-a76e5e8a-ba67-4d86-8846-6af453c5df5e

Russian President Putin had actually announced that he would be delivering more gas to Germany from November - but new figures show that the storage facilities remain surprisingly empty. Are there now any bottlenecks looming in winter?

We need to go green like yesterday...

Too bad some enemy of the German nation put the hold on nuclear power....

Is it true that management of those facilities is contracted out to Gazprom or one of its subsidiaries?

No idea....

But if there will be really a "bottleneck" this winter then we will learn all about it!

Belarus tries to bail out Poland.

By arresting the mother of a Belarusian who fled to Poland?

You have been unmasked as an enemy of Poland. Stay in your backward sh1th0le and leave Poland away?

Crowie? Is it totally unimportant for you what kind of country that is? If it oppresses and jails and exiles and kills it's citizens? As long as it is ethnically and nationalistically "slavic" it's okay in your book? Deserving your support? No matter if it makes the lives of Slavs miserable?

He hates Slavs and wants them under the yolk of some crackpot dictator.

He hates Slavs

I don't think so....

I believe he feels Slavs generally threatened and has to fight said threat. It's actually a nice trait not only to be concerned for one self (and maybe plus family) but also to care about your town, your country....I think that fear he feels is honest and serious!

But of course every nice trait can be misguided and develop into something hurt- and harmful...especially when the biggest threat today doesn't come from the outside but from the inside.

He hates them for being weak and losing all the time... (and he hates more successful slavs because they show what losers the rest are) so he creates elaborate fantasies where they're strong like Lukashenka arresting old ladies....

@mafketis

Spot on.

@Bratwurst Boy

You have got Crow all wromg.
He really is just a vindictive Serb nationalist who doesn't give a thought about other Slavs,Except for those that might aid his types,like the Russians....

Besides, he can hardly have good feelings for other Slavs when he is constantly dreaming of subjugating those who live in areas he views as Serbian, or glorifies those who butchered them e.g. in Srebenica. He calls upon Slavs the same way Hitler called upon Europeans in 1944... to aid in his mad agenda.

constantly dreaming of subjugating those who live in areas he views as Serbian

Some deep psychology there.

I've a feelingthat if his dream came true (don't worry, it won't) that he would hate the society it created.
