"Russia again failed to fulfill its obligations": Bulgaria accused the Russian Federation of a delay in the repair of MiG-29 fighters

In the last days of the work of the previous Bulgarian government, on April 28, the Ministry of Defense quietly signed an additional agreement with the Russian corporation MiG, within the framework of which a new delay was recorded in the repair of fighters. At least that's what Bulgaria itself says.


Within the framework of the agreements reached, force majeure circumstances are indicated that prevent the execution of the contract on time.

We are talking about serious delays due to the coronavirus, as well as the inability to send Russian specialists to the Graf Ignatievo airbase due to measures against the epidemic.

- noted in the Bulgarian edition "Capital".

Now the Russian manufacturer is given additional time (17 months) "to fulfill their obligations." The statement is strange, especially if we talk about the fact that the Bulgarian itself closed the borders due to the pandemic for the entry of technical specialists. In this regard, the question is, who exactly

Earlier, a contract was signed with the Russian Federation worth $ 6 million, providing for the extension of the service life of 10 RD-33 engines, which are equipped with the MiG-29 of the Bulgarian Air Force. In total, it is planned to use five vehicles of this type, while the F-2024 will take over on combat duty in 16.

Until then, Bulgaria is likely to be forced to resort to the services of the Russian Federation to repair the MiG-29

- stated in the publication, explaining that when repairing fighters in Poland or Ukraine, "our country runs the risk of getting bogged down in legal disputes."

Moreover, the corresponding threats have already been received when Bulgaria ordered work in Poland in 2015. In connection with the agreement with Warsaw, criminal proceedings were opened against the then Minister of Defense Nikolai Nenchev, he was acquitted only this year.

Due to constant delays in the repair of the Bulgarian MiG-29, a lawsuit was filed against the manufacturer in the amount of almost 1 million euros. However, in the end, the claims were only partially recognized - for about 186 thousand euros.

          Bulgaria is not an enemy to us, but our military-industrial complex needs money, and government orders alone will not go far.

          6 million dollars what are the extra milking MiG?

          They will not buy from us, they will buy from the USA, and who will lose more from this?

              They are still F-16 that you bought in the United States will survive)).

                MiG-29 is a good car. But nothing lasts forever in this world. Our MiGs have served for over 30 years. We received them in 89-90, from those located / used / in combat units of the USSR Air Force. After repairs, they will serve up the residual resource and in 4-5 years they will go on a well-deserved rest. They did their duty. They are being replaced by new, more modern ones. hi

            The court made it clear who violated. However, this is not about that, but about an attempt to write off the backlog in the fulfillment of the contract for South Stream and other irrelevant events.

        ... that most professionals are outside the age of significant risk. Why they were detained in quarantine is not entirely clear.

        As far as I remember, more than 400 Russian specialists came to Bulgaria during this period to work on the Balkan Stream site. All of them were in quarantine for 2 weeks. That is, there is no ban on the part of the Bulgarian authorities, and 2 weeks is not so long.
        It should be noted that in the case of RSK MiG, it may well be a question of a refusal on the part of the Russian authorities. They have the right not to let on business trips because of the threat to health, specialists of different profiles. The author of the article did not provide details. request

            2.Absolutely everyone who came to the country during the pandemic was quarantined for 2 weeks. This applies to both Bulgarian citizens and foreigners.

                Indeed, how do you know that:
                1.O no final refusal to build Russian AES projects In the Czech Republic, there is no talk! The decision concerns a temporary refusal with a term of 2022 until the end of the term of the current energy regulator. It's like "pre-order"! The NPP itself should begin construction by 2030-35, so that it will be operational by 2040. The tender will be held in 5-10 years. Rossat, as it was, and remains without an alternative, since the terms of reference are sharpened specifically for it, not one of the competitors' reactors fits in the conditions!
                2. Belene NPP, designed in 1981! Since then, the price has risen by 9 times in comparison with the original cost! Has turned into a bottomless pit! In 2013, a referendum was held in Bulgaria (it was called "nuclear") on the continuation of construction! The adherents did not collect the majority and the project was frozen. While the situation remains unclear, the authorities are looking for funding opportunities, as well as alternative solutions.

                The decision concerns a temporary refusal with a term of 2022 until the end of the term of the current energy regulator.

                not. they have something else.
                the procedure is as follows:
                1) Americans like the Czechs bend over - the conflict - the government's ban on the construction of a Russian nuclear power plant
                2) government elections

                - It's right. In the Czech Republic, a conglomerate of enterprises, working from the very beginning of the industry only with the USSR-Russia, themselves manufacture TVEL components, equipment for nuclear units, reactor vessels for themselves and for other countries, including for the Bulgarian Belene - who is on his own they will beat - they will unscrew the head.

                There is such a thing, freelancers with an income of up to 1000 euros are beginning to think about where to go from their "Uryupinsk", to the warmth, etc. Bali, Spain and so on, while a little expensive. So they look towards the Baltics, Vietnam, Georgia, etc. There are a lot of reviews, I read about Georgia on Habré, in my opinion. And so, I had a friend from there, I talked a couple of years ago. There is no zoological malice towards the Russians.

                  freelancers earn 1000 euros mainly in large cities.
                  very few people can get such fat orders on the periphery. There are hundreds of such people, not even thousands. And so freelancers live everywhere - they even like the favelas in Brazil.
                  For me personally, between Georgia and Turkey, the choice is unambiguous in the direction of Turkey.

            Constructed / under construction highways with a length of 7-8 times longer than it was before. This is very important for a country located at a traffic crossroads. Tens of thousands of infrastructure facilities have been built.
            All of us are gasified. localities with a population of over 10 thousand. They are home to 90% of the country's population. Until 1995, there was not a single gasified city in BG.
            GDP has doubled over the past 10 years, in 2019 it reached a historical record of 63 billion rubles. Doll.
            Having gone bankrupt in the 90s, external debts exceeded GDP, and now Bulgaria is in second place in the EU with VN making up only 30% of GDP.
            In the 90s, the gold absolute reserve was only $ 300 million. Now they are approx. USD 23-25 ​​billion
            The financial system is stable, for 20 years now the exchange rate of the Bulgarian currency has not changed in relation to the euro. Inflation in the 90s exceeded 300%, now it is minimal. Unemployment has decreased 5 times. Hundreds of new businesses began operations. Income outstrips inflation by 2,5 times.
            And this is a country that does not possess some serious natural resources!
            I write from memory, here you can find out in more detail. True, the corona crisis had a negative effect, but even taking it into account, Bulgaria is doing better than many other countries:
            https://topwar.ru/140445-buduschee-ekonomiki-bolgarii-vyglyadit-optimistichno.html
            Predictions for the post-epidemic period are very optimistic.

            The power is the same, the problems are the same, there are fewer tourists, the prices are still higher.

            There is a problem, and who does not? Tourism has sat down due to the pandemic in all countries. As for the government, there is a democratic system in Bulgaria and we can change the government if we think that it does not work as it should. The spirit of criticality reigns in the Bulgarian media space, there is freedom of opinion, people go to protests and no one will forbid them! The opposition is strong, the president, for example, is from it. In the elections a month ago, not a single party was able to get a majority. Appointed new elections for June. We do not have irreplaceable leaders and mega-pseudo-parties!

      If specialists are not allowed to visit, let them bring them themselves for maintenance / repair, what is the question then ???

      It is not clear from the text who is not letting in Bulgaria, the Bulgarian authorities or the Russian ones? Let me remind you that at this time a large number of Russian specialists working on the Balkan Stream route came and went without any problems, subject to the established quarantine order.
      "We are talking about serious delays due to the coronavirus, as well as the inability to send Russian specialists to the Graf Ignatievo airbase due to measures against the epidemic."

      The fact is that the delay in fulfilling the contract was outlined even before the beginning of the epidemic. The reason is that the DGC revealed that they do not have some of the elements / are not already produced, not in the warehouses /, which are provided according to the specifications. RSK offered to replace them with newer models, but at a significantly higher price. The customer objected that he agreed, but without exceeding the contract price. After all, he does not have to pay for problems in the logistics of the RCS MiG! Official correspondence lasted for several months!

      In another post, for comparison, I will give an example with Belarus, with which Bulgaria signed an agreement for the repair of the Su-25. hi

        Dear Nicholas hi just at that time the Belarusian JSC “558 Aviation Repair Plant” was repairing the Bulgarian Su-25! There were problems, but ultimately Belarusian coped with 5 ++++!
        The Bulgarian side, the pilots, the technical staff were so pleased that the Minister of Defense of Bulgaria Krasimir Karakachanov awarded the representatives of the Belarusian plant that repaired the Bulgarian Su-25 aircraft, as well as the employees of the Ministry of Defense for their professionalism in cooperation with the Belarusian plant! For his part, the director of JSC "558 Aviation Repair Plant" Pavel Ivanovich Pinigin thanked Krasimir Karakachanov for cooperation. He presented him with a book-album “The Heritage of Belarus”, wishing him: “Let the book remind you of our common implemented project, for which I am personally grateful to you”.


        Another post on the topic on VO:
        "The deal with the Belarusian company was concluded by the Minister of War of Bulgaria Krasimir Karakachanov. Before its implementation, she had to go through many obstacles. In the end, with some delay due to the coronavirus pandemic, the work on the contract is nearing completion, in contrast to a similar agreement with a Russian contractor. . "

    In my comments under the article there are detailed explanations on the case about the real reasons for not fulfilling the contract / this is 1 framework and 5 separate / from the side of JSC "RSK MiG".

    “The Ministry of Defense has demanded a penalty in the amount of 924 euros from JSC RSK MiG, of which to date it has received 686.76 euros. The rest of the amount has not yet been paid, as a problem analysis is underwayarising from the implementation of contracts by JSC "RSK MiG", as and there is a search for the possibility of solving them", said the Ministry of Defense of Bulgaria.

    As a reminder, Bulgaria signed an agreement with a Russian company in 2018 for 41.565 million euros and a deadline of 48 months. The agreement includes delivery, repair of equipment and 4 RD-33 engines, control and restoration work of 3 MiG-29UB training and combat fighters, etc.

    The fact that RSK MiG has already paid 185 thousand. euro NEUSTOYEK indicates the recognition of the fact of non-compliance with the contract with her side. Further in the text, it is said about the search for possible solutions, which indicates the willingness of both parties to extend the contract. In case of failure to reach an agreement, the rest of the penalties will be paid. Obviously, we agreed, since the corona virus provides a legal basis for using the "force majeure" clause.

    Belene NPP, designed in 1981! Since then, the price has risen by 9 times in comparison with the original cost! Has turned into a bottomless pit!

    Over the past time, Belene has not risen in price by 9 times in parity prices, considering the depreciation of money for 40 years. Do I need to remind you that the price of electricity has grown more than 9 times in 40 years.
    A bottomless pit in the energy sector in Bulgaria is an American coal-fired thermal power plant, photovoltaic, CHEZ, EVN and the like.
    In 2013, a referendum was held in Bulgaria (it was called "nuclear") on the continuation of construction! The adherents did not collect the majority and the project was frozen.

    Despite the unprecedented propaganda against Belene by the government and practically all media, the majority (60%) of the project had a majority in the referendum. At the same time, it took place legally, since more than 20% of those eligible to vote took part.
    So don't be fooling around and misleading.

      Kostadinov, on these issues in Bulgaria we argue and we will argue. But this is our inner theme! I don't accept, accusations like "credo: .... that ... and Bulgaria refused to build Russian nuclear power plant projects on its territory? " Whether it builds or not, and what kind, my state has the right to decide! For that, a referendum was held!
      ... in the referendum, the project had a majority (60%). At the same time, it took place legally, since more than 20% of those eligible to vote took part.

      Although voters by a majority of votes (60,6%) supported the construction of the nuclear power plant, due to the extremely low turnout (20,2%), which was less than the required 60%, the results of the referendum are considered legally invalid. The decision of the nuclear power plant issue was transferred to the People's Assembly of Bulgaria, as provided by law. I personally voted with YES, but I respect the law for the difference from you! If 20% voted with YES, and the rest with NO or did not vote, then the project does not have proper support from the population!

    And a comparison with the Serbian MiG-29s that are already flying, all Serbia's expenses will be, in the worst case, 20 times less and there is no need to change and buy anything else.

      I always thought that I should beat some kind of steed in people.

      And I think so, and I also think that a person should at least take an interest, look for info before starting to comment!
      We paid either 2 or 3 billion for eight aircraft, which is like aerodynamics 50 years ago and which, at best, will arrive in 2024. And this is just the beginning of payments. Then there will be simulators, repair and support, training, equipment of aerodromes.

      The total price is $ 1,256 billion. It includes 3D simulators, training, diagnostic stands, documentation and licenses, a set of weapons for aircraft, full warranty support for 3-5 years / I don’t remember exactly /. A decision of the US Congress is also expected, to reduce the cost from $ 60 million. 6 aircraft will be received in 2023, 2 in 2024, and 2 more used aircraft. as a gift, for additional training of personnel and pilots. A second order for 8 more will likely be awarded in the next 2 years. The F-16 bl .70 will be the most technically advanced aircraft in the Balkans. Serbian used The MiG-29 awaits the fate of the Bulgarian. Their resource is also not so good, but to maintain the old-fashioned way, not a cheap enterprise. Look at the repairs what problems arise!

    Kostadinov, on these issues in Bulgaria we argue and we will argue. But this is our inner theme!

    And where did I say something else. This is our insides and we argue.
    the results of the referendum are considered legally invalid

    The result of the referendum is unambiguous and legally valid. Read legislation on referendums. Not only the duty of parliament will fulfill it, but that is another matter. The law is made so that no referendum has yet resulted in such an obligation.
    If 20% voted with YES, and the rest with NO or did not vote, then the project does not have proper support from the population!

    Not voting does not mean NOT, but just do not have an opinion on the topic of the referendum and give others the right to decide. Therefore, 20% of the participants, according to the law, means that the referendum took place. Quite another matter is the duty of the parliament to fulfill the will of the people expressed in the referendum.
    Parliament today unanimously decides in 2-3 years something else, and there decisions are made by representatives for whom no more than 20% of all voters voted.
    The total price is $ 1,256 billion. It includes 3D simulators, training, diagnostic stands, documentation and licenses, a set of weapons for aircraft, full warranty support for 3-5 years / I don’t remember exactly /.

    We will know what the real price will be no earlier than 2024. But even so it is clear that it does not include changes to the aerodrum and their equipment for the F-16, but this is a lot of money. What does "warranty support" mean? What is included in this term? And the set of weapons is the most scanty that you can think of.
    The F-16 bl .70 will be the most technically advanced aircraft in the Balkans.

    How this platform, with its 50-year-old aerodynamics, can be technically advanced so only you know. I will not comment on Greece, which already in this year Rafal is starting to enter and 84 F-16s are already being upgraded to the standard block 72. Do not bother commenting on the Turkish Air Force and what they will be in 2024. There are very big doubts that these are our "advancement" F-16 will be better and the Serbian MiG-29. By 2025, everything will be clear.

    It's like a service station. Yes there is only to replace the oil seals, and you will climb ...
