In a Sofia-datelined story headlined “Bulgaria’s centre-right party woos voters with energy subsidies” Reuters also highlighted GERB’s pledges to back South Stream only in case the EU gave its approval for the Moscow-backed gas pipeline project and to review a deal with Westinghouse to build a new reactor at Bulgaria’s Kozloduy nuclear power plant.
