In the refusal of Mongolia from the construction of the Shuren hydropower plant, the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia

Mongolia will abandon the project to build the Shuren hydropower plant, the head of the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia Sergey Donskoy

In the refusal of Mongolia from the construction of the Shuren hydropower plant, the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia
It will not be built because, in my opinion, there is an international community that is negatively opposed to the construction of hydropower plants. We applied to the World Bank, which, including at our request, suspended funding. In addition, according to all international agreements, such projects should be coordinated with us, "the minister told reporters.

"We have proposed an alternative, we understand that the country should develop, and this requires additional energy, and we are ready to supply energy resources so that they can close their entire deficit," he said.

The project for the construction of the hydropower plant in Mongolia includes: the construction of the Shuren hydropower plant on Selenga itself and two hydroelectric power stations on the tributaries of the Selenga River - the Orkhon River and the Aegin Gol. Russia believes that this project represents a serious environmental threat to Lake Baikal.

Russia has already secured from the World Bank a freeze on financing the Mongolian hydroelectric power station and offered Mongolia alternative options for the supply of Russian electricity. One option may be to increase the power of the Gusinoozersk-Darkhan power transmission line. Another option is Mongolia's offer to become a transit country for the supply of Russian electricity to China, Interfax notes.

As already reported by the EastRussia news agency, the construction of a hydropower plant in Mongolia can lead to ecological disaster on Lake Baikal: the hydroelectric station was planned to be erected on the Selenga River, which provides up to 80% of water flow into the lake, and its tributaries.
