Ukraine's refusal to import Belarusian electricity will not affect the operation of Belarusian energy system. This was announced on Telegram channel of the Belarusian Ministry of Energy.

The ministry noted that the volume of electricity supplies from Belarus to Ukraine was small last year and this year. It is reported that in the autumn-winter period, Belarusian electricity, which was supplied at the request of the Ukrainian side, was used to ensure the sustainable operation of Ukraine's energy system during adverse weather conditions.

"The decision to limit the import of Belarusian electricity creates certain risks primarily for Ukrainian electricity consumers. But in this case, the policy is more important than economic arguments," the statement said.

As it was reported earlier, Ukraine refused to buy electricity from the Belarusian nuclear power plant. According to Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonite, Europe hopes that Ukraine will abandon dangerous suppliers and move towards a European renewable energy trend.
