Following the decision of Nord Pool not to cooperate with Inter Rao, Russian electricity is no longer flowing into the Baltic States / Article

Russia’s only electricity exporter, Inter Rao, has been subject to international sanctions over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

RAO Nordic Oy, a subsidiary of Inter Rao, cut off electricity supplies to Finland a week ago because the company has not received any payments for electricity sold through Nord Pool since 6 May.

In recent years, commercial electricity imports from Russia to Latvia and Lithuania have gradually shrunk from 1,300 megawatts to 300 megawatts. The flow of commercial electricity from Russia to Latvia was stopped at the beginning of May, but Lithuania still received Russian electricity with a capacity of up to 150 megawatts.

In Estonia, Inter Rao had around 50 legal customers who have now received offers from other electricity suppliers.

Before the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Baltic states had begun the process of desynchronizing their electricity networks from Russia.
