Russia and Bulgaria have never had secret agreements on the energy projects, Russian Energy Minister Sergei Shmatko said.
“If legitimate decisions passed by the previous government are rejected every time, then how can we possibly work with this country! All projects have been openly discussed in Europe. We passed the procedures for obtaining Euroatom permits. Saying there are some secret agreements and the opposition has not been aware of them is not true”, Shmatko said.
This month, the Russian energy minister and Rosatom chief Sergei Kirienko will visit Bulgaria to discuss the joint projects of the two countries – South Steam, Burgas Alexandroupolis and Belene NPP.
