Lithuania: What will happen after Ignalina is closed

A plan announced by the future head of Energy ministry of Lithuania to the Baltic Course:
After the decommissioning of the Ignalina power plant at the end of this year, according to the future minister, a part of the needed electricity will be compensated by Elektrenai, cheap electricity will be imported from Russia and a part of electricity will be bought on free market. However, the electricity produced by Lietuvos Elektrine will cost more than in the neighboring countries, because the generators of Elektrenai are non-efficient. The efficiency would become evident only in 2012-2013, when an up-to-date block is built.

Once again - no new Ignalina in plans. Lithuania seems to rely on new plants that are about to appear around in Russian and Belarus in nearest future.
THe end of the most "nuclear" country in the world.
