Mirchev offensive service cabinet: With its actions, it clearly shows how Bulgaria is a conquered country
With a new post on Facebook, the People’s Representative from “Democratic Bulgaria” Ivaylo Mirchev attacks the actions of the official cabinet. Yesterday the Minister of Transport Hristo Alexiev announced that ““Lukoil” transfers all its economic activity to Bulgaria, according to Mirchev, however, this is not a success, but proof that the country is not a country conquered by “Lukoil”.
His post comes only a day after Radev made a remark to “Democratic Bulgaria” about their posts on Facebook. The President referred to a post by Hristo Ivanov on social networks and said: “People from my cohort graduated from American academies, and from yours – Soviet.
Here is what Ivaylo Mirchev wrote:
Lukoil. With its actions, the official cabinet clearly shows how Bulgaria continues to be a managed country… the country of Lukoil. The feeling remains that there are no independent countries that follow the law and European policy, and that is ready to satisfy every Russian whim. Lukoil did not give in to the Bulgarian government by promising to pay taxes. Lukoil is returning to the old scheme, in which it did not pay any taxes, but at the expense of this, Bulgaria now exists to break the European sanctions and calmly sell on the European market at prices with which to destroy the competition. In the regulation, art. 18 it is clearly written that the transfer of oil products from Russian oil to third countries is prohibited.
The set of exclusions that the EU makes for Bulgaria is that the production of the Burgas refinery is sold only on the Bulgarian market. This should also lead to a serious drop in prices.
This year alone, Lukoil owes the state at least 180 million euros. corporate tax euro. These are the conservative calculations. And who exactly will the state guarantee the payment of taxes for the year? Maybe the NRA and customs, who are afraid to go to Rosenets for an inspection? Or will Rosen Hristov make the representative of Bulgaria in the refinery protect the national interest? No, everything will go back to the old way, and the price of fuel will remain ⅓ higher than it would be if Lukoil fuel was sold at its real value. And we also have bitter experience already, as Russian companies have started with Gazprom to keep promises and trade agreements in 2022.
In Democratic Bulgaria, we have been working for months on legislative changes with which the Bulgarian state will place the refinery under special supervision, following the example of Germany. We will submit our proposals to the parliament very soon.
The refinery in Burgas is an object of Bulgaria’s national security, and Russia threatens it with all its actions. Control over it will prevent Lukoil from racketeering that it will close if we do not allow it to export, and prices at gas stations will drop significantly. Support will be needed in the parliament and the government independent of Russian interests.
