The closer the launch of the Astravets NPP in Belarus, the more often alleged safety issues of the NPP are reported. In reality, not a single Lithuanian argument against the Astravets NPP has found its confirmation. Lithuania has been running a deliberate information and political campaign against the Belarusian NPP because it is a flagship project for Belarus and Russia. Lithuania is unhappy about Belarus-Russia cooperation in the nuclear field. Hence, the Lithuanian political elite’s attempts to block a common Belarus-Russia project that has become a symbol of the Union State between Belarus and Russia.
The new leadership of Moldovan diplomacy is as myopic as the previous one. The new Foreign Minister wants to integrate us into what is in the process of disintegration – the European Union.
This message is in line with the pro-Kremlin narrative on the disintegration of the EU. The report advances a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative painting the EU as a disunited and disintegrating bloc, overseen by a central bureaucracy bringing harm to the sovereignty of member states.
At the core of the EU are the 28 Member States that belong to the Union, and their citizens. The unique feature of the EU is that, although the Member States all remain sovereign and independent states, they have decided to pool some of their sovereignty in areas where it makes sense to work together.
