KYIV, Aug 14 – Representative of the President in the Cabinet of Ministers Andriy Gerus has asked the government to stop the process of implementing the Ukraine-EU Power Bridge project.
"Last week, the Energy Minister signed an order according to which one unit of the Khmelnytsky nuclear power plant (NPP) should be withdrawn from the Ukrainian power grids and transferred, in fact, to the Polish power grids. So we will only be left with expensive coal and green generation. Therefore, I request this process be stopped. It's absolutely impossible to do this at the moment," he said, speaking during a government meeting on Wednesday.
