Lukashenka's Nuclear Program

Construction of a nuclear power station in Belarus is to start in January 2009. According to plans, the first bloc of the nuclear power station is to be launched in 2016, the second in 2018. It is planned to use water-moderated water-cooled reactors of the third generation. The main producer of this equipment, US-Japanese, French-German and Russian companies, have received offers from Belarus to consider possible participation in construction of the nuclear power station. According to experts, the nuclear power station will be constructed by Russia.

The intention of the regime to construct the nuclear power station has caused protests of scientists and population. Belarus is the country most affected by the catastrophe at Chernobyl nuclear power plant, Scientists advocate prohibition of placing nuclear armaments and its elements at the country’s territory, construction of nuclear power plants and storage of nuclear waste.
