South Stream Project Will Be Carried Out, Russian Official Says

The abandoned South Stream gas pipeline project designed to pump Russian gas into Central Europe via Bulgaria "will probably be carried out," Russia's commercial attaché to Bulgaria has said.
At a Russian-Bulgarian business forum in Bulgaria, Igor Ilinkin has recalled that South Stream's alternative project, Turkish Stream, will only consist of two pipes.
South Stream, on the other hand, was designed to have four pipes, news website Dnevnik.bg quotes him as saying.
Ilingin has announced Russian investors are interested in the Port of Varna as it has been recently operating at a profit, "due to the fact it has business contacts and projects with Russia. This does not only concern the type of cargo, but also the South Stream pipes stored at the port."
