Bulgaria reviews existing contracts for transit of Russian gas

Despite the fact that Gazprom has completely suspended gas supplies to Bulgaria, our country has no problem with supplies. This was announced at a joint press conference by Prime Minister Kiril Petkov and Deputy Prime Minister Assen Vassilev, co-chairs of the "We Continue the Change" party.

They said that Bulgaria would not meet a single demand that is outside the gas supply contract with Gazprom Export.

Petkov added that in retaliation to Russia's unilateral breach of the gas supply contract, Bulgaria is already re-considering all existing agreements for the transit of Russian gas through the country.

He confirmed that the transit has not been stopped at the moment. According to him, the reason that Russia has halted the gas supplies to Poland, Bulgaria and Lithuania first is that their turn of payments according to the calendar has come. /BGNES
