There is no reason to resume gas supplies to “unfriendly” Bulgaria; Sofia herself was desperately trying to spend the winter without Russian blue fuel. This was stated by Senator Alexei Pushkov.
“I think Bulgaria should be given the opportunity to do what she so desperately wanted, — spend the winter without Russian gas. It is not entirely clear why gas supplies to an actively “unfriendly”, i.e. hostile, state should continue, especially since it itself has refused them,” — wrote senator in his Telegram.
