Russia has stopped supplying power to Lithuania, the country’s electricity transmission system operator Litgrid announced on Sunday.
Inter RAO, which was the only importer of electricity from Russia to Lithuania, confirmed the suspension of deliveries. Earlier this month, Inter RAO’s Nordic branch also stopped supplying electricity to Finland.
Lithuania’s Energy Ministry initially announced that it would stop buying Russian electricity on Friday.
“According to the decision of the electricity exchange operator Nord Pool, trading in electricity generated in Russia, which was carried out by Inter RAO (through its subsidiary Inter RAO Lietuva), is terminated” starting from May 22, the ministry said in a statement.
