BTA: Bulgarian Prime Minister Denkov rejected the possibility of Lukoil violating country or EU laws
MOSCOW, December 5 – RIA Novosti. The Bulgarian Telegraphic Agency reported that Lukoil did not violate Bulgarian law, EU regulations or customs regulations (BTA) referring to Prime Minister Nikolai Denkov.
According to BTA, Denkov promised that if the Bulgarian government finds traces of violations in the company’s activities, it will make the information public.
Bulgaria had previously approved a ban on Lukoil Neftochim’s use of Russian oil in Burgas from March 2024. From January 1, 2024, export quotas will be abolished, and the exception for the refining of Russian oil will be completely removed from March 1.
In response, the Lukoil Neftochim oil refinery in Burgas warned of the threat of stopping production due to the removal of quotas on the export of oil products.
In 2022, EU leaders agreed to impose a partial oil embargo on Russia. At the same time, Bulgaria was exceptionally allowed to process Russian oil shipped by sea until the end of 2024.
BTA writes that Bulgaria will appreciate Lukoil’s subsidiary’s plans to deprive Russia of oil
