Ex-Prime Minister of Bulgaria: Belene NPP could push economy decades ago

101
Bulgarian politician Ivan Kostov, who holds the post of head of the Center for Analysis and Risk Management, spoke about the implementation of the project to build a nuclear power plant in Belen. Before presenting Mr. Kostov’s judgments, it should be noted that he previously (1997-2001) served as head of the Bulgarian government.


According to Kostov, who, along with the head of the center, has long and firmly become addicted to Euro-Atlantic grants, investments in the construction of Belene NPP can “return the Bulgarian economy tens of years ago.”

Ex-Prime Minister of Bulgaria: Belene NPP could push economy decades ago


Kostov quoted by the portal "Russian Bulgaria", said that the project must again "notify before the European Commission, since it is impossible to use the notification held in 2006 year."

Kostov:
There are geopolitical risks associated with dependence on a single fuel supplier and provision of services.


Recall that at the moment about 1,8 billion dollars have been invested in the project.

When in Bulgaria they heard about Kostov’s statement about the “rollback of the Bulgarian economy a decade ago”, many people shrugged their shoulders. There is reason for bewilderment.

In the 70-80 of the last century, the Bulgarian economy grew at an impressive pace. Thus, during the 6 of the Bulgarian Five-Year Plan after the commissioning of the Kozloduy NPP, the republic’s GDP grew at an average of 8% per year. By 1989, 60% of Bulgaria’s GDP was industry.

While working in the cabinet of Mr. Kostov, Bulgaria’s GDP declined to 56% of the year’s 1989 level. According to official statistics only, the percentage of the population living below the poverty line in 2000 was 72%. Kostov’s government sold out most of the country's strategic assets at ridiculous prices, declaring this to be the achievement of a market economy.

Bulgarian industry has fallen to a minimum over 50 years. The current level of poverty in an EU country is officially 24%. Trade balance - "minus" 3,5 billion dollars. About 15% of GDP, Bulgaria spends on servicing EU loans.

So if the Bulgarian economy as a result of the construction of Belene NPP “returns a few decades ago” (for example, to the level of 1988-1989), then the majority of Bulgarian citizens will hardly be opposed ...

                  In short, it is clear to any more or less thinking person that the GDP criterion does not express anything and does not say anything, but it helps to push the natives. For example, when white people pulled Bulgaria, they popularly explained that GDP growth is good, it is the highest meaning of life, and in order to raise GDP, it is necessary to carry out privatization - to sell to those who have money everything they can - nuclear power plants, electric networks , sewer, water supply, land, etc. Bulgaria's GDP has skyrocketed! Still, after all, assets that existed earlier but belonged to natives who did not know how to use them in the market were instantly included in the market turnover. And then rex-pex-fex, blah blah blah about investment, and locals in Bulgaria have nothing. The water supply system belongs to the Austrians, the power plants to the Germans, the power supply to the Czechs. The British bought the land (and maybe not the British, who bought it, bought it through Cyprus). The VVP grew, and the Bulgarians were left with their bare ass.

                  But nothing, is there any skin on the pope yet? So they began to rip her off. Previously, electricity was Bulgarian, and the Bulgarians paid a penny for it. Moreover, they exported it to the EU and Turkey. And then their power plants in the process of increasing GDP became German, and the Germans decided to bury the Bulgarian energy sector. They explained to the locals that nuclear power plants are bad, it is necessary to build wind generators and solar power plants. After all, locals were taken to the EU, and according to EU standards they should receive 16% of electricity from environmentally friendly sources. And “green electricity is 10 times more expensive!” And when the Bulgarians received electricity bills, they howled and rushed to rally. The government had to use the money that it received from the sale of nuclear power plants to gradually mitigate shock energy therapy. Check out the beauty of the brilliant operation: at first the Bulgarians sold their energy to the Westerners, then they gave them the proceeds, and something about 37 billion euros still remained in the terminal. Now the Bulgarians are accustomed to and pay for the light regularly 10 times more than before. And this is wonderful, because the contribution of the electric power industry to the country's GDP has grown! The funniest thing here is that electricity production has fallen and GDP has grown! This is real magic!

                  True, the Bulgarians themselves from such happiness began to flee the country. Previously, there were 9 million, now 7 million remain, of which the Bulgarians themselves are only 5 million, and the rest are gypsies and Turks. But here there is reason for joy, because GDP is expressed not only in absolute figures, but also per capita. So if your GDP falls, but the population decreases even faster, it means that per capita GDP is growing. So everything is fine! Bulgaria is on the right track! Agriculture has died, the chemical industry has died, science has died, the people living in the hinterland live by candlelight, the country is deep in debt, but "the dynamics are positive," as Western economic shamans say, counting their milk yield ...

              Ask me laughing De facto, everyone called Bulgaria the 16th republic. The Bulgarians wanted to formalize all this de jure, but the Soviet leadership politely rejected their proposal, citing the lack of a common land border, but most importantly, Bulgaria would lose its voice at the UN. The UN made it clear that with Belarus and Ukraine such a topic would not work.

            Whoever does not know this, he simply did not live under the USSR, or at least managed to stay a maximum pioneer with the Union. And I, for example, saw that, unlike various African and Asian Papuans, even the manuals on military equipment were not translated into Bulgarian. A week to live in the Golden Sands resort or on a business trip in some godforsaken garrison (and visited there and there) - and you quite understand the Bulgarian language. I even read books in Bulgarian, which the Union could not get - the Strugatsky, for example. And everywhere - "bros".
            And about the economy ... Who was Bulgaria before the "occupation" of the Soviet Union? What did they know, except for a hoe and a shovel ... And we still have motor ships made in Bulgaria on the Volga. And who built those shipyards? The invaders?
            Ordinary Bulgarians return to the 80 year — yes they would give the rest of their lives for this. In Voronezh we had less socialism at that time than in Sofia, Varna or Plovdiv ....

    One thing surprises me, the inhabitants of Bulgaria. What kind of sheep do you need to be in order to eat such a heresy? That means selling energy to Austrian and Czech companies and then paying “European fair” prices for electricity is normal. And to have its own generation is a throwback of the economy. Energy is the basis of all industry, and therefore the basis of the welfare of the state. A year ago, red-haired beast also offered to preserve or disassemble the excellent generating facilities in Russia, such as expensive to maintain. In relation to this, one can already judge patriotism.

        So without energy it will not be. You need to start. But before you buy a car, you think where to put it? So it is here. Moreover, private business is more willing to go where there is infrastructure - roads, communication lines, free volumes of energy capacity, lines for their transfer. To build a processing plant at some field is good. And how will the plant work? Build your own generation for the enterprise - how much can you imagine? And the cost at the end will rest on the cost of the products of your plant.

    How could this (although probably just a corrupt bastard) - Ivan Kostov, could hold such a post in Bulgaria ?! Yes, even schoolchildren understand that having their own power generation, especially based on the use of atomic energy, is CHEAPER at times and more profitable than buying it at a market price in the EU !!!

    Looks like the United States bought everything and everything in Bulgaria ... I still don’t understand how you can betray your people and your country like that ... They refused gas transit and what did you get besides the approval of the West ?! Nothing, but if you had gas transit, it would be money for its transportation and jobs and for yourself, in the end, cheap gas immediately from Russia, and not through a bunch of intermediaries. The same thing with nuclear power plants - having a nuclear power plant in your own home - is cheap energy and jobs, and in the end even the prospect of exporting energy, which again can be earned ...

    While we are wondering how the Bulgarian people “betray us” like this, Uncle Sam laughs rubbishly rubbing his clumsy hands, because they already put them to all the key politicians in Bulgaria and now they are defending the interests of not Bulgaria and Uncle Sam ...

    I wish the people of Bulgaria that they have only those who defend the interests of their country at the head of the state !!!

And even if you give independence to such a country, even at the cost of the lives of your soldiers, then there is almost a 100% situation that such a country will immediately sell to someone its gained independence as an asset, in order to cut down a little pennies "for now." I hope that Russia has learned the lesson of international relations on the topic "good deeds are always punishable."

      So, the female dog, when she was a prime minister, gouged the chemical industry, glass production, shipbuilding, metal production, mechanical engineering (almost managed to gouge the military industrial complex) and everyone managed to reach it. He achieved a three-fold increase in gas prices from Russia and presented it as an outstanding success (of course, not to mention what the price was before), almost destroyed agriculture (fortunately did not have time). he sold factories (primarily promising) TES, VES, to his friends (incl. amers) assets, according to some estimates, amounting to 200-300 billion dollars, and the budget included only 8 billion, but on his personal account in a Swiss bank it was rumored to be between 500 miles and a billion dollars. Despite all the tales, AES never sold to anyone, but it was half-closed. Blocks from the first to the fourth (this is also his business), but now they are actively saying in the media that in 4-5 years they will close the 10th and 5th blocks.
      His government provided the amers with a dozen bases ABSOLUTELY FREE forever and ever (by secret agreement), although the media trumpeted that from these bases the Dolar rivers would go to the budget. You can judge how much the Bulgarians believe him that after his premiership, he never again came to power even in a coalition. From 53% at the time of his premiership (less than 45% of eligible voters voted) in the next election received less than 30%, and now even 5% of the barriers to parliament can not go. Unfortunately, he’s very smart, but such an outrageous thing ... that you can’t find it with a lantern during the day.
      The funny thing is that sincerely offended when the media call him the destroyer of modern Bulgaria. He even sued, although he did not achieve anything (which I mean by the venality of the Bulgarian judges is very surprising).

      hi Hi erudite laughing Who told you the thinker that Bulgaria was released on January 4th ??? As far as I remember, the war of liberation of 1877-1878 ended with the Sanstefan Peace Treaty of March 3, 1878. AND ETA DATE March 3 is the NATIONAL Holiday of Bulgaria. WHO SAID TO YOU that Bulgaria was released on January 4th ??? In addition, on January 4, 1878, the Russian army still did not cross the Balkan Mountains. And how she was able to teleport from Northern Bulgaria to the heights of Istanbul on January 4, I do not know. Maybe you know? All the same, it is better not to make high-profile statements if you know almost nothing about the Russian Turkish war of 1877-1878. In addition, according to rumors, Vladimir Putin accepted the invitation to be an honored guest at the celebration of the 140th anniversary of the liberation of Bulgaria on March 3, 2018. hi

          The liberation of Sofia, which until the middle of 1878 was not the capital of Bulgaria at all, NEVER means the liberation of Bulgaria. Sofia became the capital of Bulgaria after the Great National Assembly that took place in Veliko Tarnovo AFTER THE FREEDOM OF ALL BULGARIA. Before that, it was just one of all the cities in Bulgaria. All the same, the Bulgarian patriarch led a prayer service for the liberation of Sofia from Bulgaria. hi

    Dear, Bulgaria is a capitalist country, and ksati Russia too. If someone wants to build a nuclear power at their own peril and risk - please. But to build a sovereign, each resident owe 1500 euros - why? 10 billion euros, thank you, no. Up to 2035 calculations show that the available capacity will be more than sufficient.
    Ivan Kostov was the prime minister of Bulgaria in 1997-2001 after a total stall of 1996-97. Under his predecessor, the socialist Videnov, the state disintegrated. Hyperinflation, banks collapsed, unemployment, dads and so on. Kostov did for Bulgaria what Putin for Russia restored power, strengthened institutions, strengthened the monetary system, and threw crime underground.
    I ask you not to worry about the economy of Bulgaria. 5 times more than 1989. Historical wear record. The historical record of industrial production. The historical record of wheat finishing. Pensions are higher than in Russia. There is practically no unemployment, on the contrary - the problem is the lack of labor. Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna are exhausted in terms of personnel, new plants are being built in small towns. My daughter works as a head hunter (sorry, I don’t know how to speak Russian), her daily life is a real battle for engineers. If you are an engineer (anyway - computer, electric, mechanic, chemist), come to us. If a technician, too. Khumanitariev and the plankton office, please stay in place - we have enough.
    Now we are using full integration with the West. I work through the Internet for American manufacturers of cosmetic products, my wife works in a German company, analyzes the sales of stores in Germany, one daughter in an Austrian company for staff, the second daughter leads an online repair team of engineers in the City of London.

      Excuse me Jmbg, but if you don’t understand what you indicated as export, it’s more suitable for some kind of banana country in Africa than for Bulgaria. Until 1989, our homeland was the 34th in the world in economic development. Now, by living standards and economics, it has slipped below the first 130 countries. All this export is more likely to approach some sort of colony than a developed state. And how many cars and trucks (at least a screwdriver assembly) were produced in a year? In monetary terms, how many integrated circuits and processors have they produced? How many mobile phones and tablets, not to mention computers (at least a screwdriver assembly), were released? I will not ask about steel, ships and aircraft in general. In addition to course mobile phone planes and tablets, everything was UTILO until 1989. And as for record quantities of wheat - yes it is, but WHERE is milk, meat, grape vegetables, rose oil, etc. which Bulgaria produced in millions of tons (rose oil per thousand tons)? Yes, everything is replaced with wheat fields. That's why there is a record production of wheat, but there is no milk, meat, grapes, or even tomatoes in sufficient quantities comparable to 1989 and even since 1939. We import everything from Turkey, Greece and even Macedonia. And all this is thanks to your beloved kostov who did not collapse only that which he did not reach. That is, now Bulgaria pays about 400 dollars, for 1000 cubic meters of gas it is also his merit. Because of his own greed, he closed Topenerji and Bulgaria began to pay at least twice as much as before. As for the restoration of statehood by the bones. Do not tell my shoes. Yes, after him, corruption has reached such proportions that even his former associates in the SDS are amazed. Before him, the ministers, of course, also took bribes, but during his reign there appeared something like a price list for bribes, depending on the position and responsibility of the bribe taker. Even his minister of economics, it seems, Bchvarov received 12 million to sabotage the deal to build 10 ships for Germany shipbuilding plant in Varna. As for the collapse of the economy to the cost. Or maybe you remember me a fool what was the main interest rate from mid-1992 to October 1996? If you don’t remember, I will recall 62-69% per annum !!! Can you tell me at least ONE economy in the world that can survive in such conditions? And so in 1991, the government took ALL the money in the accounts of the plants to the budget and forced ALL plants that had mobilization commitments to purchase and create mob reserves at their own expense! And since it was impossible to do without taking loans, even the most profitable plants got unnecessary debts and reserves. And after mid-1992, everything was hanging dead dead weight across the entire Bulgarian economy. Despite all this, the government quarreled with Russia and lost bazaars, which further aggravated the situation. At the end of 1996 and the beginning of 1997, interest on loans grew to 400%. Leo reached 3000 per dollar. The most interesting thing started later. As soon as Videnov was removed (because he did not want to take more loans abroad), Sofiyanski came to power and Suddenly, with a magic wand, the dolar fell to 1500 leva. And immediately the BNB reduced the percentage per annum to 5% and hyperinflation DISAPPEARED as if by magic! And do not tell me that in merit is the merit of Kostov. After all, the BNB did not obey both Videnov and Kostov. If you have a head on your shoulders, then you can draw conclusions yourself. If nyat I will explain. It was just that Bulgaria had to introduce an invisible external control, which was done by introducing a currency board. Of course, he does not allow politicians to print money as they want BUT also makes Bulgaria ABSOLUTELY DEPENDING on the exchange rates (and those who control these currencies) taken as the basis of the board. In addition, if the government cannot make up the budget, it is forced to take loans, which further aggravates the situation. Because instead of the BNB simply printing the necessary amount of money, which of course generate inflation, the BNB does not just print money. For this money, one also has to pay considerable interest, because the government has to borrow money from private banks and they already take loans from the BNB or simply work with partial collateral, which increases inflation by several times. As for the lack of engineering and technical personnel. For this, too, you can thank your favorite. During his reign, due to the fact that maso was bankrupt and cut into metal factories, these very technical personnel simply had nowhere to work. So they went abroad. And if there is no demand for such personnel, then schools began to be closed in large numbers and the training of engineers at universities was greatly reduced. And UTB happened precisely at the time of KOSTOV. Now you have to reap the benefits of his "VERY FAR-WAY" policy. The situation was greatly exacerbated by a still serious decrease in the standard of living in the period until 1997 and in fact its standing in place for the entire period until 2010-2016. Of course, salaries hung, but sometimes they did not even cover inflation. (Sofia is an exception) But she is not BULGARIA. laughing. Ask someone from Northwestern Bulgaria where it reaches up to 50% in villages. And the people ceased to believe in politicians and began to vote with FOODS massively emigrating to the West. And it is precisely the most intelligent young and active who emigrate. And this process unfortunately accelerates. So your daughter does not have enough personnel. And it is unlikely that entrepreneurs in Bulgaria are ready to pay their staff even a quarter of the money that the same staff will receive in the West. So you yourself and your family work for Western companies, and they use you because you are doing the same work for which your employers would have to pay 3-4 times more to someone in the West, These are the pies.

    It’s not even possible for the Bulgarians to judge him! Yes, and does not reach us! They themselves, such figures, walk around in freedom and learn to live, at least, lay behind the gates.

    I believe that Bulgarian citizens correctly noted that a refund in this case would be only the best result. It is better to go back and start over than to go on a dead end following the blind.

    Unfortunately, the AEC Belene project was not realized as an economical and mutually beneficial project, but as a corruption project, the mafia’s business, for the sole purpose of stealing state money from Bulgaria. The fact that they stole several billions did not get better either from the Bulgarians or the Russians, only replenished their pockets Bulgarian and Russian mafiosi.
