"The visit will address the most important mutual energy cooperation issues that have been laid down in the cooperation memorandum signed last December. (…) The minister and Ukrainian officials will discuss the problems in connection to the plans of building the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline on the bottom of the Baltic Sea," Aurelija Vernickaitė, the minister's spokeswoman, told BNS.

In her words, presentation of model of operation of the Baltpool biofuel market, which is operating in Lithuania and Latvia, will be one of the key issues on the agenda.

Vaičiūnas told BNS last December that Lithuania could advise Ukraine on decommissioning of its nuclear power factories.
