“Even the fact that the Bulgarian prime minister had not visited Moscow in the last five years is quite demonstrative,” the former president recalled, noting that “For this period of time joint projects, particularly in the energy industry, were abandoned or brought to the periphery.” Parvanov noted that “this was not Russian, but European projects,” including South Stream gas pipeline and construction of Belene nuclear power plant. In his view, “far from an equal alternative” was found to some projects, particularly in the energy sector. For instance, “instead of nuclear power plant Belene” US company Westinghouse Electric intends to build a 7th reactor of nuclear power plant Kozloduy, Parvanov added.
He said with hope that a next Bulgarian parliament and government “will stabilise relations between the two countries.” “We can be a worthy partner within the European Union, but this absolutely does not require to have cooled relations with Russia,” the former president noted.
