“Four lines now transmit electric power from Russia to Finland. Three of them are very old and need repair. We have several times asked our Russian partners about the possible details, including whether the repair is planned, when and how long it can take, but received no answer,” he said.

“That is why we do not know whether we can receive electric power in the future, and we are considering various scenarios of development of Finland’s power industry, of which some exclude power supplies from Russia.”
