Bulgaria spoke about the purchase of Russian gas at exorbitant prices

The Bulgarian media once again acknowledged that the authorities could not completely abandon Russian gas. Moreover, the country is forced to purchase it through intermediaries at a price much higher than if the deal were carried out directly. Greece acts as an intermediary, which resells almost all the gas purchased from the Russians to Bulgaria.

Energy expert Yavor Kuyumdzhiyev, whose assessments are published on the website of the national TV channel BNT, spoke about this in the Day Begins program.

The expert noted that with such fuel prices, the cost of bread and many other products that use gas in the manufacture will not be able to be kept within reasonable limits.

The situation is extremely difficult, especially after the provisional government announced on Friday that it had not found a way to obtain a stable supply of liquefied natural gas

- another Bulgarian expert Vasko Nachev assessed what was happening.

Earlier, the media reported that official Sofia was negotiating with a number of countries - from Azerbaijan to Qatar - on the subject of various gas supply schemes. However, they all failed, and now the Bulgarian authorities are considering the possibility of a new appeal to Moscow.

Earlier, Bulgaria itself abandoned the “gas for rubles” scheme proposed by the Russian Federation, as a result of which the country lost access to blue fuel at reasonable prices.

In addition, the Bulgarian sales market itself is too small to be of interest to large natural gas suppliers.
It is worth noting that the Bulgarian leadership has driven itself into this impasse by consistently policies, which has little to do with national interests, but meets the directives of Washington and Brussels.

In particular, we can recall the largest joint energy projects with Moscow - the South Stream gas pipeline and the Belene nuclear power plant, which did not take place precisely because of Sofia's position.

Bulgaria's energy problems are not something unique in Europe, where the rejection of Russian energy carriers has become a big problem.

Many European enterprises, the profitability of which was calculated precisely on the basis of the uninterrupted supply of Russian energy carriers, are now forced to revise their work schedule or stop production altogether. European small businesses are especially at risk.

By winter, this trend is expected to only gain momentum due to a new jump in prices.

    There is no money - let the girls and lads pay, as in the good old days. And the resulting "goods" immediately sell to the Turks. In exchange for tomatoes.

      For all the mistakes and not mistakes, the Wishlist of governments, the common people always pay (In Russia - is it not so?). And, you also want to mow down the simple people of Bulgaria! Russonazi?

    Well, "brothers", they have become more advanced, Europeanized, you can kill Russia and ..., so now sip with a full spoon, it’s just a pity for our great-grandfathers who laid down their heads for you and your Varna and Shipka, so that the Janissaries don’t cut you, yes, apparently in vain, they would cut you out, and now there would be no problems with you. It would seem that there is a lot of sedition in my words, but I don’t regret it at all - traitors have always been vile.

    It seems to be a friendly country to us. Truth always sucks. And under the kings and in the Second World War. Under the rule of Zhivkov, they asked to join the Union, maybe they should have taken it. There would be an enclave in the Balkans. The communists left and their rulers lay down to the west and began to spoil again. Only all their unrighteous actions come back to haunt them.

    Nothing "brothers".
    This is today "three" prices, tomorrow it will be "five".
    Summer hasn't ended yet.
    And if the Greeks open their mouths and say something against Russia, there will be "seven each."
