LT: Lithuania sends note to Russia regarding nuclear power plants.

By bne IntelliNews April 11, 2011
Lithuanian government sent a note to Russia regarding the nuclear power plant project in Kaliningrad. The note indicates that Lithuania is not satisfied with the environmental effects research that the Russian government has provided to Lithuania. It points out that the research does not answer concerns raised by Lithuania, there is lack of factual information, and scientific proof. PM Andrius Kubilius believes that the nuclear power plant in Kaliningrad is completely unnecessary, and that PM has indicated it to the Russian PM Vladimir Putin. Gitana Grigaityte, head of the economic safety policy department at the ministry of foreign affairs, indicated that both Russian nuclear power plant project and Belarus projects have the same issues. Russian nuclear power plant has a 30km sanitary zone around the plant, while the plant is being built 13km from the Lithuanian border. Similar note has been sent to Belarus several weeks ago, yet so far without any official answer.
