The Bulgarian government will propose to the European Union to finance the construction of a gas hub at the entrance of the South Stream pipeline on Bulgarian territory, from which the Russian raw material is to be distributed to the other European countries.
The idea of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has been discussed and approved by the other Ministers at the meeting of the Cabinet on Wednesday, electronic daily Dnevnik reports.
The Deputy Prime Minister for absorption of EU funds and economic policy Tomislav Donchev has been entrusted with the task of sending a letter with the proposal to the Vice-President of the European Commission for Energy Union Maros Sefcovic.
