ABSTRACT
The article reveals that Belarus is once again embracing nuclear energy, following the Chernobyl nuclear accident in 1986. The move is part of the country's goal to cut its dependence on Russian gas after a couple of winters of price hikes and shut-offs. Belarusian President Alyaksandr Lukashenka announced the final decision to build a nuclear plant. Chernobyl Way, held in Minsk every April 26, the anniversary of the disaster, remains one of the country's largest opposition rallies.
