The Ministry of Energy of Ukraine opposes the import of electricity to Ukraine from Russia and Belarus.

Acting Energy Minister of Ukraine Olha Buslavets told this during a meeting with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Lithuania to Ukraine Valdemaras Sarapinas, according to a statement on the ministry's website.

“Recently, the forecast balance of electricity for the next year was approved, which does not provide for import or export from Belarus and Russia,” Buslavets said.

She emphasized that synchronization with the European ENTSO-E is a priority for Ukraine, and preparation for this is taking place following the approved plan.

Buslavets added that the Ministry of Energy intends to sign a Technical Agreement on Ukraine's accession to the NATO Energy Security Center of Excellence.

Earlier, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that his country needed to build another nuclear power plant. This will allow cities to switch completely to electric transport and be independent in terms of hydrocarbons.
