IAEA didn't assess site selection for Astravyets N-plant in Belarus

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) did not analyze the selection of the site for the Astravyets nuclear power plant (NPP) close to the Lithuanian border in Belarus, which runs counter to information provided by Belarus, which said that IAEA had found the construction site suitable. Nevertheless, the agency's report does not say anything about this.

Following a trip to Russia by a group of young Lithuanians that included visits to war museums and meetings with members of a pro-Kremlin biker club, the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry will consider tightening its recommendations on cooperation with the neighboring country's authorities, Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius said on Thursday.

Russia couldn't find a future but wants to manage the past

Next year Russia will hold presidential elections. But there are some problems. First of all, Russia is not a democratic state. In "Freedom House" rankings it belongs to the "not free" countries category. In 2017 the country received an evaluation of only 20 points from 100. It means, that in the short-term we should not expect free and democratic elections in Russia.
