In reaction to the halt in natural gas shipments from Russia to Slovakia via Ukraine, Prime Minister Robert Fico said that Slovakia could re-start the V1 nuclear power plant in Jaslovské Bohunice, which was shut down one week ago.

"If Slovakia should be held hostage to the Russian-Ukrainian dispute also in the coming days and non-standard solutions should be adopted, I can imagine as a non-standard solution to be re-launching the operation of Jaslovské Bohunice nuclear power plant V1," the prime minister said.

Fico said he believes Europe’s dependence on Russian gas will increase in the future. He expects Russian and Ukrainian representatives to reach a final deal on Thursday, January 8. SITA
