Bulgaria opposed sanctions against the Russian nuclear industry


Bulgarian President Rumen Radev said that his country would not support EU sanctions against the Russian nuclear industry. He urged the EU to focus on sanctions that would stop the fighting in Ukraine.

“I have repeatedly stated that we cannot accept nuclear sanctions against Russia, because this will directly affect our nuclear industry. We are considering all areas where sanctions can be imposed. We are very careful about vetoing,” Mr. Radev said at a briefing (quoted from Blitz).

13th of January Reuters citing high-ranking diplomats, he reported that Poland and Lithuania were proposing to add restrictions against the Russian nuclear industry to the 10th package of EU sanctions.

The European Union promised to introduce a new package of sanctions on February 24, the day of the anniversary of the special military operation. Reuters sources believe that the sanctions may affect Rosatom and its leadership. Hungary has announced plans to veto EU sanctions affecting Russian nuclear power.
