Russia to Sue Bulgaria

Atomstroiexport will take Bulgaria to arbitration court for 58 million euros ($82.35 million) over delayed payments for its work on two nuclear reactors, Interfax reported.

Atomstroiexport, which teamed up with Bulgarian NEK to build the 1,000-megawatt reactors at Belene, accuses Bulgaria of not respecting the terms of its contract for work done before construction was halted on the project in April.

The company was quoted Thursday as saying it had brought the case to the Paris-based ICC International Court of Arbitration because the delays in payment could give it problems with tax authorities and creditors at home.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
