Rosatom creates an alliance for the construction of nuclear power plants in Bulgaria

Stanislav Georgiev, representative of Framatom in Bulgaria, commented on the Bulgarian radio station BNR that Rosatom is currently the leading company in the agreement, and a consortium could be created at the next stage. Thus, Rosatom creates an alliance for the construction of a nuclear power plant in Bulgaria.

    Oh well! The virus of Gazprom's idiocy was transmitted to Rosatom .... How many useless ton-kilometers of gas pipelines have been pushed into ... Europe, and now, again, we are building something for the "brothers" with our own money ..... Interesting, and what about them, so "cut" (steal) is impossible, and it is imperative to push them into our muddy and slippery "partner"?
