Bulgaria suffers great losses from the gas crisis
“The losses for Bulgarian economics since the beginning of the year are catastrophic. This catastrophy was caused by political decisions, not by a natural cataclysm or the worldwide economical crisis. In this situation I think that Bulgaria has every reason to expect solidarity from the European Union”, said the minister of economics and energetics Petar Dimitrov when asked by journalists about the possibility for a restart of the 3rd and 4th blocks of the Nuclear power plant “Kozloduy”.
According to Petar Dimitrov, Bulgaria will negotiate for compensations from the European commission because of their refusal to allow the restart of the reactors.
The minister says that for two years of inactive reactors, the income to Bulgaria’s economcs decreased by nearly 350 million euro.
