Russia has cooperated with Belarus for the initial text of the intergovernmental agreement on constructing the Belarusian nuclear power plant, Interfax reported. The document will be presented to Russian and Belarusian ministries. The two countries have also signed an action plan for 2009. A feasibility study of prospective investments in the Belarusian nuclear plant will be discussed soon at Atomenergoproyekt, the general designer of the project.

It is planned to construct two power units, each with the capacity of 1,200 megawatts, in the Grodno region

Russia and Belarus are still required to coordinate on financial terms of the project. Interfax reported. In June 2009, Belarus asked Russia to consider a possible loan of $9 billion for the nuclear power project and related infrastructure. No decision has yet been made.
