Bulgaria admitted: nuclear power plants cannot be built without Russia

For a long time in Bulgaria, local "patriots" -nationalists have hindered the Russian state-owned corporation Rosatom in the construction of the Belene nuclear power plant. During this time, two power units could be commissioned, significantly improving and reducing the cost of electricity supply to the population of this country. And so, the head of the Ministry of Energy of Bulgaria, Temenuzhka Petkova, informed the public that the implementation of the Belene NPP project is impossible without the participation of Rosatom.

We categorically stated that the designer of the Rosatom project, without their participation, construction is impossible, this position was fixed in the text of the procedure

- said Petkova.

We informed the EC (European Commission - EU Government - Ed.) About the procedure for choosing a strategic investor and about the intention to build a station with his participation

- said the official.

It should be noted that in 2006 Rosatom won an international tender for the construction of two power units of Belene NPP. Expensive equipment was delivered to the construction site from Russia and work began to boil. However, in 2009 the project was frozen, and in 2012 Bulgaria completely abandoned it.

In 2018, the tormented Bulgarians decided to resume the project and began frantically looking for an investor. A year later, in the spring of 2019, the “bros” even published the procedure for selecting an investor in the EU magazine. Immediately after that, from the bowels of the sympathetic Rosatom, in anticipation of the visit of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to Sofia, they announced that they were ready, along with other applicants, to participate in the competition to resume the construction of Belene NPP, guaranteeing the construction of this facility in a short time.

The world's leading companies have declared their desire, and we are satisfied with this. (...) That is, those companies that determine the development of nuclear energy

- emphasized Petkova.

Petkova added that the procedure for selecting an investor is as transparent and absolutely public as possible. At the same time, the contest participants are: Rosatom, China National Atomic Corporation, Korea Hydro and Atomic Energy Corporation, Franco-German company Framatome and General Electric (USA).

In turn, we will continue to observe what is happening and inform our readers with undisguised interest.

    An interesting policy of our government and the president is to the Serbs who are not building anything for Russia, and the Bulgarians who are ready to betray at any opportunity, ready to build at least something for their money. And then we wonder why our monuments are demolished. If you do not respect yourself, why should others respect you!
    1. Serbs - stinkers, brrrrrr! They went away!

      What does it have to do with respect, politics ?! We began cooperation on the construction of nuclear power plants. At some point, Bulgaria went overboard and they decided that the US would build the nuclear power plant, so they do not need our services. They paid us a forfeit covering our expenses. We parted. Russia is happy with everything, Bulgaria wipes away its snot after the United States sent them and they lost a tidy sum to compensate Russia. In my opinion, everything is normal for Russia, and Bulgaria cannot decide for itself, but the USA assures them that everything is cool.

    It would be interesting if the "patriots" were to make the price for electricity high, and the supporters of the NPP lower. Many of these patriots will remain?
