In exchange, Rosatom wants the state to give it a guaranteed price of electricity from the new nuclear facility. If the state complies with the Russian firm’s plans consumers would pay €250 million more in electricity bills, Sme wrote.

Economy Ministry spokesman Stanislav Jurikovic told Sme that it is premature to talk about any subsidies.
