Quote from Lukashenko: "The date when the nuclear power plant will be commissioned has shifted because of Russia. Obviously we asked them for compensation in line with the agreement. There’s no need to hide this. This is nothing unusual."
Details: Lukashenko added that Russia offered to sell nuclear fuel to Belarus at the same rate as it does to Russian power stations, and a five-year warranty on major components by way of compensation.
