Monday, May 11, 2015
Tatyana Korotkevich, a presidential candidate in the upcoming presidential elections in Belarus this autumn, says she doesn’t expect to become president but just wants to unite Belarusian people who want peaceful changes.
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko's statements about armed fighters allegedly trained in Lithuania and Poland are aimed at warning future protesters and justifying possible repressions against them.
Poland's decision not to buy electricity generated at the Astravyets nuclear power plant (NPP) under construction in Belarus confirms the Lithuanian stance that the utility threatens the whole region, says President Dalia Grybauskaitė.
Poland became Lithuania's first ally in its efforts to stop the construction of the Russian state corporation Rosatom's nuclear power plant in Belarus when it stated its intentions not to purchase electricity from the facility under construction in Astravyets, just 50 kilometers from Vilnius, Lithuanian politicians and experts said on Monday.
