Bulgaria will not support large scale sanctions on Russia
SOFIA - Bulgaria will not support imposing large scale economic sanctions on Russia before the European Union carries out a impact assessment on such measures, Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski said in a statement on Thursday.


EU member Bulgaria, which meets about 90 percent of its energy needs with imports from Russia, will be among the countries that will adversely affected if such sanctions be imposed, the government press service quoted Oresharski as saying to reporters ahead of an European Council meeting in Brussels.
