Without explaining the reasons, Latvia stopped commercial imports of electricity from Russia for two days - April 8 and 11 - during the test shutdown of the power transmission line between Belarus and Lithuania, APA reports citing Kommersant.
This happened before the exits of the Baltic countries from the BRELL energy ring (Belarus, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania), scheduled for 2025.
According to Kommersant, referring to the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, the shutdown of the transmission line between Belarus and Lithuania did not affect the operation of the Russian energy system.
