Russian gas to Serbia via Bulgaria in May next year

December 12, 2019

Moscow’s ambassador to Sofia Anatoly Makarov said on Thursday the Bulgarian Prime Minister Bojko Borisov promised him the gas from Russia would start running to Serbia via ‘Turkish Stream’ on May 31, 2020, the FoNet news agency reported.

The Russian President Vladimir Putin has recently criticised Bulgaria for delaying the contraction of its part of the ‘Turkish Stream.’ Borisov said his country respected the European Union’s rules and invited Putin to Bulgaria to see for himself.

On Thursday, Makarov said he asked Borisov directly: “When the gas from Bulgaria will continue to Serbia? And he said on May 31. All right then. I’ll inform Moscow (about the deadline).”
