Bulgaria has decided to terminate the construction of the Belene nuclear power plant, a project that was started in 1981.
The Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov said that the government will end the deal with Russia for the construction of the project because it was “unfeasible” and too expensive.
The parliament voted on Thursday. A total of 120 MPs voted in favor of the death of the Belene NPP, 42 voted against, and one MP abstained. A total of 163 out of 240 MPs were present at the voting.
