Bulgaria, Russia Should Reconsider Option for Direct Gas Supply - President Radev

Bulgaria and Russia should consider once again the option for direct supply of Russian natural gas via a pipeline across the Black Sea, Bulgarian president Rumen Radev said on Monday. The EU is aware of the need for direct gas deliveries to its member states, Radev said in a statement after his meeting with Russian prime minister Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow, giving the NordStream 2 gas pipeline project as an example."I call upon the two governments to review once again the possibility for direct supplies of Russian gas across the Black Sea to Bulgaria - with the participation of the European Commission, of course," Radev said. In December 2014, Russia abandoned - over objections from the European Commission - its plans to build the South Stream gas pipeline designed to carry Russian gas under the Black Sea to Bulgaria and from there to central and southern Europe but said it is ready to build another pipeline system to Turkey instead (TurkStream).
