Construction of Astravets nuclear power plant is not a civil, but a military-political decision. Such opinion was expressed by an organizer of the campaign Astravets nuclear power station is a crime Mikola Ulasevich at a press-conference in Minsk.

The civil initiative Astravets nuclear power station is a crime was established about six months ago, when it became known that the ecologically clean Astravets district was chosen for construction of the nuclear power plant. However, the local authorities ignore the demands for holding a wide public discussion on this issue. Moreover, the founders of the campaign are haunted.

‘We have to work in the conditions of provocations. Recently there have been searches at our apartments,’ said the activist. Mr. Ulasevich also calls on all those who are concerned with the country’s future to join the anti-nuclear campaign.
