The Baltic countries are full of concern over the Belarusian nuclear power plant in Astravets. Lithuanian officials and experts keep raising the issue at every given opportunity. The military security question are also on the table.
“We know that Belarusian and Russian armed forces are integrated, but the appearance of a military base in Belarus would be further proof that it is impossible to talk about any independent defense policy of Belarus. And everybody realizes that no matter what happens in our region, Belarus will respond taking into account Russia’s stand,” Linas Kojala, Director of the Center for European Studies, said.
