Anxiety in Czech Republic about nuclear supplies from China, or from Russia

BNE Intellinews 28th Jan 2021, The planned tender for the supplier of the new unit at the Dukovany nuclear power plant will most likely be without a Chinese bidder, the Czech
government and the leaders of the opposition parties agreed on January 27.
According to Minister of Industry and Trade Karel Havlicek, for all
political parties China is an unimaginable main supplier. “Basically, we
all believe that China is an unimaginable potential supplier to us in the
tender.
At the same time, the political parties are divided in the attitude
of a certain part of politicians who would like to exclude Russia [from a
tender, too], while another part wants to keep it there,” minister said.
Some opposition parties see Russia as a security and geopolitical threat,
said chairman of Mayors and Independents Vit Rakusan. The state has been
also considering financing the construction of a new nuclear power plant in
Dukovany on its own, in case involvement of the state-owned energy company
CEZ would be too expensive.
