KIEV, January 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Coordinated efforts by emergency and security services helped prevent a real threat to the Dnieper hydroelectric power station, the largest power plant in Ukraine, Energy Minister Eduard Stavitsky said on Monday.
At present, law enforcement structures “search for those who seek to commit the crime and organize the act”, the minister said.
In addition, Stavitsky declined to comment on the station’s mining for legal reasons.
He also said radical protesters had tried to seize the Energy Ministry. “The ministry is on full alert and the situation is under control,” Stavitsky said.
Over several days anonymous calls threatening to lay mines at strategically important energy and gas facilities have become oftener. On January 24, a person said an attempt had been made to seize the Rovno nuclear power plant. On January 26, the ministry got information on laying mines at the Dnieper hydroelectric power plant.
Stavitsky said the situation was under control. “I don’t admit any interference into the energy complex’s work,” the minister said.
