CHEREPOVETS, September 5 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Vladimir Putin launched a new hydropower plant in Karelia on Monday, September 5.
After a presentation of energy projects at an inter-regional conference of the ruling United Russia party in Cherepovets, which was broadcast by the Russia 24 television channel, Nord Hydro Managing Director Alexei Vinogradov asked Putin to launch the power plant in a real-time mode by way of videoconference.
