Bulgaria wants to receive Russian gas, but does not want to give in and negotiate

Bulgaria, like the rest of Europe, needs gas supplies, especially on the eve of the start of the heating season. The cost of "blue" fuel in the "democratic" and free markets of the EU goes off scale and only Germany, the poorest republic in the eurozone, can buy it on the spot. At the beginning of the week, the Acting Minister of Energy of Bulgaria, Rosen Hristov, tried to solve this problem, who was ready to negotiate with the Russian side regarding the restoration of gas supplies.

But a few days later, under pressure from Brussels, which sent its emissary to the republic in the person of the Energy Director of the European Commission, Ditte Yul-Jorgensen, technical The (transitional) government of Bulgaria suddenly became unwilling to negotiate with Moscow. A statement was made that no one was going to concede to the Russian Federation, and there was nothing to agree on.

According to Deputy Prime Minister of Bulgaria Hristo Aleksiev, Sofia has a contract with Gazprom, and Russia supposedly needs to comply with it. The republic is not going to conclude a new contract either in the short or long term. Naturally, such a tough position is caused by anti-Russian sanctions, which Sofia is happy to fulfill, while waiting for the "execution of the contract" for gas.

It is noteworthy that the previous government resigned due to the crisis that loomed over the poor republic, which lost Russian fuel supplies. Now the new, technical cabinet of ministers of Bulgaria is splitting the attitude towards getting gas from Russia. Some members of the transitional government are ready to cooperate, but many still refuse, pursuing a pro-European policies regardless of the consequences.

In general, the actions of the Bulgarian side are similar to an ultimatum: not even a request was issued, but almost an order to resume supplies, and the deadline for considering Sophia's “application” is until Monday.

    And if Gazprom does not supply gas, then Bulgaria will declare war on Russia.

      Wanting is not bad, not wanting is bad. But wanting and having are two big differences, so ... freeze, freeze, wolf tail!

    Well, if he does not want to negotiate, then let him stay without him.

    - Well, that means (as always) - Russia will give in! - Something Moldova has quieted down - soon it will start begging again out of habit (to supply gas on debt)! - Well, here too - "the same thing will happen" (as always) - and the freebie prospect will open again under the name - "Russia - a generous soul"!
    - Who can answer - from the EU-sheep, someone seriously suffered from a lack of Russian gas ??? - I will answer for everyone at once - no one !!! - It will continue like this - only the EU will begin to "seriously" suffer from a lack of Russian gas - Russia will immediately supply gas to the EU - it will simply break into a cake - but the entire EU will be flooded with gas! - So you shouldn't worry about the EU countries at all - they will have an abundance of gas!
    - There is no doubt about it!

    For good Bulgarians, we must begin with the return of Russian diplomats and an apology
