The Position of the Coordinating Committe of the Belarusian National Platform of the Eastern Partnership Civil Soeciety Forum on the need to suspend the launch of the Belarusian nuclear powerplant against the backdrop of the COVID-19 disease pandemic

The Coordinating Committee of the Belarusian National Platform Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum (BNP EaP CSF) expresses solidarity and full support for the statement of the Belarusian Anti-Nuclear Campaign on the planned launch of the BelNPP and the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Coordination Committee of the BNP EaP CSF believes that in the situation where there are fifteen infected and more than a hundred employees suspected of having COVID-19, further work on the construction and preparation of the station for launch is impossible and unsafe for life and health of both the workers themselves and the citizens of the Republic of Belarus as a whole.

We draw attention of the Belarusian authorities to the need to suspend the construction of the BelNPP and fulfill all the requirements contained in the Statement of the Belarusian Anti-Nuclear Campaign attached to this document. We ask the Delegation of the European Union to Belarus to convey to the EU authorities the position of the Coordination Committe of the BNP EaP CSF and the content of the Belarusian Anti-Nuclear Campaign Statement in view of the potential danger of the situation not only for Belarus, but also for the EU Member States.
