In Bulgaria, considered Russia's decision to abandon the " South stream " tactic
Russia's decision to stop the implementation of the project " South stream " is a tactical move, says the Chairman of the energy Commission of the Bulgarian Parliament Martin Dimitrov.
" This is a tactical move by Putin and Russia. In no case they will not abandon the South stream. Possible reorientation of the project on Turkey would lead to its appreciation and made economically impossible. So what is happening is a tactical move, which aims to increase the pressure on Bulgaria and the European Commission, " he said, reports TASS. For reviews of policy, then the progress of Russia in Bulgaria " is hysterical on the subject because they have no choice and losing." But in reality, the choice We have. This is the game We've seen before, in other situations. We in any case can not give in and retreat from their positions. It is important for us that the project was profitable, or it makes no sense, " said Dimitrov. On his part, former Ambassador of Bulgaria in the Russian Federation iliyan Vassilev in an interview with Bulgarian national television has suggested that the Russian initiative is " to provoke anti-European sentiments in Bolgarii." Bulgaria should not be identified as the only reason (stop " South stream " ), because the pipeline runs through many other countries. The Bulgarian government can do nothing. Possibly, further explanations about how much money We lost, " said Vassilev. Bulgarian officials from the statements on the " hot topic " as long as refrain. The government press service makes a promise during the day to make an official statement because of the decision to stop the project " South stream ". On the first day of the week the head of centuries Putin said that the Russian Federation should not in the current conditions to continue implementation of the " South stream ". A decision about This, as later said the Minister of energy Alexander Novak, took, himself, the head of Putin. The head of Gazprom Alexey Miller confirmed that the project is closed and return to it will not. In early winter the idea was obliged to begin the construction of the offshore part of the pipe, the purpose of which was to secure the southern European country of transit risks. Currently, natural gas is in Bulgaria, Serbia and other countries through Ukraine, which in winter may steal going to the European Union gas from transit pipes, causing cold Europeans.
