În cîrdășie cu sau la ordinele americanilor, dar mai ales împotriva intereselor naționale.
This dramatic development takes place after work on the South Stream pipeline was halted. Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski said on 8 June his cabinet was stopping construction until Brussels lifted its objections to the project. At the G7 summit, Commission President José Manuel Barroso made it plain that the EU’s executive had launched an infringement procedure against Bulgaria for non-compliance with European rules on energy competition public procurements. Other infringements procedures related to other countries would follow if other irregularities were not removed, he said.
Oresharski announced the decision to freeze South Steam after he received in Sofia US Senators John McCain, Ron Johnson and Christopher Murphy. On 6 June, the US Ambassador to Bulgaria Marcie Ries said that Bulgarian companies participating in the construction of South Stream could be hit by sanctions. The reason is that Bulgaria has awarded the construction of the Bulgarian stretch of South Stream to a consortium with the participation of Russia’s Stroytransgaz, a company linked to Genady Timchenko, an oligarch under US sanctions.
Asked by EurActiv today in front of the Commission headquarters if he saw the news coming from Sofia about the freeze of works on South Stream as positive, Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger said “it seems so.” [Bulgaria’s government to collapse over South Stream]
Demență curată aprecierea comisarului ueist pentru energie (!?).
Datorită instabilității politice cauzată de ultima lovitură dată speranțelor Bulgariei de a ieși din criză devenind poarta de intrare pentru South Stream, de 3 zile s-a instaurat panica printre deponenții de la bănci. „Ajutată” suplimentar din umbră sau nu, situația de acolo e periculoasă. Doar de acolo ? [Panique bancaire en Bulgarie : la banque centrale avance la thèse du complot]
Conform zvonisticii complotului, de vină ar fi tot rușii, desigur, care ar destabiliza singurul guvern care a permis demararea unui proiect bun pentru interesele Rusiei ca exportator de gaz.
Lasă că are grijă UE de Bulgaria ! Vecină cu Grecia, de altfel. Și cu noi. Nu prea departe de Cipru… Contagioasă chestie.
Cît despre „independența energetică” a României… doar după ce o vom lua atît de tare peste bot de ni se vor stinge felinarele.
De văzut și articolul de la RT: Waging war against Russia, one pipeline at a time
„Indeed, it seems that Europe, and by extension the US, is attempting to leverage their political clout in Eastern Europe to block Russian development and, simultaneously, keep those countries subservient to the West. As many have noted, the pipeline will bring tremendous benefits to Bulgaria, and all countries through which it transits, as those countries will then be recipients of generous gas discounts, not to mention jobs and other major benefits for the economically struggling countries of the former Soviet space.
And this is precisely the issue, namely the question of whether countries like Bulgaria are allowed to pursue their own, independent economic development, or whether they must be subjected to European and American bullying.„
