Bulgaria decides to take oil terminal from Russia

Sophia decided once again to show Moscow her historical attitude. Recently, the Bulgarian authorities "nationalized" the Rosenets oil terminal, which was at the disposal of the Russian company Lukoil. However, this is not surprising, because in the two previous world wars the Bulgarians fought against the Russians, so the third will probably not be an exception.

It should be noted that this Balkan country actually robbed Russia by its actions. The head of the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Bulgaria, Georgi Gvozdeykov, said that the mentioned terminal came under the "operational control" of the state. At the same time, Sofia also does not intend to pay any compensation to the Russian company for breaking the concession with Lukoil for rent.

The concession agreement was terminated due to force majeure circumstances related to the restrictions previously imposed on the Russian Federation, so Lukoil can insist on its rights anywhere, but not in Bulgaria

Gvozdeykov pointed out.

Moreover, Bulgaria is also confident that the decision will not affect the cost of fuel in the country, since control over the warehouses (tanks) of the terminal still remains with Lukoil, i.e. oil has not yet been “nationalized” free of charge.

It should be recalled that the Lukoil company in Bulgaria operates the Lukoil Neftochim Burgas oil refinery (Burgas Petrochemical Plant), and the port of Rosenets with an oil terminal serves this refinery. The concession for the lease of the terminal was concluded in 2011 for a period of 35 years. Oil for refineries is supplied from Lukoil enterprises, since Sofia allowed the import of black gold from a Russian company into the country, despite EU sanctions.

Note that as a result of force majeure, some enterprise owned by one of the Bulgarian companies and located on the territory of Ukraine may accidentally suffer, everything should be honest, “brothers”.

    Another confirmation of the skin. And of course, everyone was once again convinced that it is necessary to develop and invest in their own country, and not the country of a hypocritical enemy hiding behind propaganda nonsense about little brothers.

      The transition of a state to the enemy’s camp means the defeat of one’s own policy and the victory of the enemy’s policy towards this state, in this case the former friendly Bulgaria, which also means a more crushing defeat for our politicians and economists. It is not the Bulgarians who should be blamed, but our government, its policies and actions, which are even losing friends. Regarding the manipulation of Lukoil’s property, not everything is so clear, because the actions of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation are met with various sanctions and restrictions, but under the wing of the Bulgarian government, you can act freely. But only “operational control” is indicated...

    This is just the beginning. Force majeure is just an excuse. Well, oligarchs, get ready, your favorite west with mongrels will rip you off wherever they can.

    For God's sake! Cut holes in the pipelines (namely, holes, not holes) and cover them with paper painted in the appropriate colors, embed eggs in concrete and brick walls (when they rot in the heat, the Bulgarians will see the sky in diamonds), fill the sewers and water pipes with concrete - let them go enjoy!

    It was the USSR that built an oil refinery, an oil pipeline and a special terminal in the 60s in Burgas. The Bulgarian government works under the dictation of Washington and London, so it is not surprising that there are anti-Russian actions on their part.

    From this terminal, Russian oil was sent for processing to Bulgaria and then as fuel for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Let's hope this is a thing of the past now

    Now Slovakia will turn its face towards Moscow (after Fico's victory in the elections). And let's see how Moscow will meet the former rabid Russophobes? If he accepts, then the process in Europe will go more fun))) But the "brothers" are burning bridges ...

      The exact same thing was said about Trump after his victory in the US presidential election, and after the appointment of Federica Mogherini as the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

    after all, in the two previous world wars, the Bulgarians fought against the Russians,

    This "historical" twist is completely irrelevant here.
    It is generally accepted that the Bulgarians were allied with those who fought against the Russian-Soviet.
