Ignalina nuclear power station

The Ignalina nuclear power plant is the only atomic station producing power in the Baltics. It is located in Northeast Lithuania, about 30 km from the Latvia's second biggest town Daugavpils. It's structure is similar to the infamous Chernobyl plant and thus will be closed at the end of 2009 due to safety requirements from EU.

They should rebuild it to modern standarts, Baltics need independant power supply, not to be dependant on unreliable Russia.
