Negotiations are inevitable: Bulgaria bows to Gazprom for the sake of fuel supplies

Having been left without Russian gas at the end of April of this year, Bulgaria has become closer to Europe with all its crises and, as never before, moved away from energy security. The patience of the president and the population was enough for exactly a few months. Toward the end of August, Sofia gave up and goes to bow to Gazprom in order to restore the supply of scarce fuel. This is reported by the Bulgarian edition of "Dnevnik" with reference to the Ministry of Energy of the Republic.

The head of the department, Rosen Khristov, categorically stated that negotiations with the Russian gas monopoly are "inevitable."
In his opinion, Bulgarian households and entrepreneurs are not able to afford "European gas" at a price of more than $1000 per thousand cubic meters, especially since now the quotes have risen even more. In order to somehow prepare the ground before starting negotiations with the Russian side, Khristov even scolded the head of the previous government, Kiril Petkov, who caused a quarrel with Gazprom and Russia, who expelled 30 Russian diplomats, effectively cutting off access to cheap raw materials.

The situation is deplorable, we have little hope, but obviously Bulgaria will have to turn to Russia without expecting a quick and positive result after all that has happened

says the minister of the transitional government.

Sofia, as you know, not only quarreled with Russia, supporting Western sanctions, but also refused to pay for gas in rubles. In early August, the chairman of the board of directors of Bulgargaz, Ivan Topchiisky, also noted that the company continues negotiations with Gazprom, there is a possibility of resuming Russian gas supplies to Bulgaria. But so far they haven't been successful. Own luck in this matter has now decided to try the branch minister.

In addition to a purely economic issue, negotiations with Russia and Gazprom carry social andpolitical load. The previous government of Kiril Petkov resigned at the end of June, and a new government has not yet been created. The thing is that there is a great social demand for friendship with Russia and, of course, for receiving Russian gas as a guarantor of a smooth passage of the winter heating season with adequate numbers in bills. That is why the transitional government has been entrusted with the responsible mission of restoring not only gas supplies, but also smoothing out the social discontent of the population.

    Of course, you can resume, but only after bringing all the lines at the time of the 2010 sample. Return all the diplomats back, and also send 30 American diplomats out as they failed to supply inexpensive gas to Bulgaria from the United States.

    I imagine Hitler calls Stalin before the Battle of Kursk and asks him to sell oil. I've prepared a tank fist here, to strike at your troops, but there is not enough gasoline! Bulgaria is the enemy! Only hostile actions from her. Bulgaria has imposed sanctions against Russia and supplies weapons to Bandera, which kills OUR sons! Maybe then they supply gas for free?

    Until the little brothers return all Russian diplomats, there is no need to talk about any "bow"

    I'm not vindictive.
    But I will say this, after your tricks, you should not even get on a plane to Moscow.
    It would be nice to recall all the embassies from Moscow as soon as possible to Bulgaria.
    And then somehow they would not be kicked on foot to the most friendly Ukraine to you.

      It is not necessary to speak for all Bulgarians. The Anglo-Saxons have a lot of experience in world colonialism. They know how to intercept the leadership of the country and force them to carry out a policy alien to the country. A whole well-established system, with the capture of the media, cutting off from the information of the other side, brainwashing with rabid propaganda, over the course of several years the results are clear - for example, they turned the Czech brothers into aggressive Russophobes. So it is with the Bulgarians, over the decades, propaganda has replaced friendship with hostility, and even planted governments from US fans ....
