Brussels preparing for talks with Russia on Baltic power systems

 

The European Commission is getting ready to start consultations with Russia over the switching of the Baltic states' power networks off the post-Soviet system and their synchronization with that of western Europe.

"When we have our next meeting with the Russian energy minister … we will brief him also about this desynchronization process," European Commission Vice President Maros Sefcovic, in charge of energy, said in an interview with BNS Lithuania.
