Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation Nikolai Shulginov has announced his readiness to resume the supply of electricity to Ukraine if it needs to be imported. The minister said this in an interview with Russia 24.
"If, as in previous years, they face a shortage of power and energy due to lack of fuel or high accidents at thermal stations, then the Russian energy system is ready to carry out [supplies]," Shulginov said.
He stressed that the issue can be resolved depending on commercial conditions.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine refused to purchase electricity from the Belarusian nuclear power plant. Prime Minister of Lithuania Ingrida Šimonytė said this the during a briefing.
"We believe that we should thank the Prime Minister (Denys Shmyhal) for the support, as Ukraine has refused to buy electricity from the Belarusian nuclear power plant," Šimonytė said.
According to her, Europe hopes that Ukraine will abandon dangerous suppliers and will move to the European trend of "green energy".
