Restarting any units at Slovakia's Bohunice nuclear plant would be
illegal and a violation of the country's EU accession treaty, European
Commission energy spokesman Ferran Tarradellas said Monday.

     Slovakia said over the weekend that it would restart a reactor at the
Soviet-era Bohunice nuclear power plant in order to cope with the cut-off of
gas supplies from Russia due to the latter's dispute with Ukraine, AFP

     Bohunice-1 was shut under Slovakia's EU accession treaty at the end of
2006 but Bohunice-2 was closed only a few weeks ago, on December 31.
