Slovenia, Slovakia, Hungary, Lithuania and the Czech Republic rely on nuclear power to meet their energy demands, yet two of these nations have already come under intense pressure from the EU countries to shut down their old Soviet-style reactors to ensure that they do not trigger another Chernobyl-scale accident.
