The poll was carried out among 1,017 respondents across Bulgaria during June 17 - 25.Some 69% of the participants say they are worried about risks related to the implementation of the project. Inside that group, 46% are worried about environmental and safety risks, next come economic and financial risks (29%), geopolitical risks (23%) and domestic political risks (20%).Around 30% say they are not worried about any risks related to the project.
