This is what the vice president said in “The NOVA News Interview”
In the first edition of “The Interview in NOVA News”, the journalist Nikolay Doinov spoke with the Vice President of the Republic of Bulgaria Iliana Yotova.
She commented on the gas crisis with the words: “How can we stop the dependence on Gazprom when we have continued to buy gas from Gazprom, only a little more expensive through several intermediary companies.” Nobody said that the panacea is Gazprom. According to her, the official cabinet has made the most honest policy by putting all options for discussion on the table. According to Yotova, diversification should have happened already in 2014 after Crimea. “To secure the heating season, we need to find the best conditions. Obviously, it will be a mix of all these possibilities”, says Iliyana Yotova. She believes that our government should not have been in a hurry, but should have waited for its partners from the European Union, with whom we could have a common European policy regarding payments to Gazprom.
