Bulgaria ready to participate in restoration of Ukraine – Parliament speaker

 Bulgaria is ready to participate in the post-war economic recovery of Ukraine, Chairman of the Bulgarian National Assembly Rosen Zhelyazkov said.

“The decision of the Bulgarian Parliament also provides support for the restoration of the economy, infrastructure, and energy of Ukraine,” Zhelyazkov said at a plenary session of the Verkhovna Rada on Tuesday.

According to him, Bulgaria is seriously discussing a critically important topic – the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine and, in particular, the restoration of energy infrastructure.

“We will continue to contribute as much as possible to the full restoration of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure. We have identified about a hundred Bulgarian companies with extensive experience in carrying out activities such as the repair of nuclear and power plant construction, high-voltage networks and gas infrastructure,” said the Speaker of the Bulgarian Parliament.

He also stressed that his country is ready to help in the restoration of Ukraine’s transport infrastructure.

“We share the opinion that the implementation of a targeted policy to restore transport links in Ukraine in the context of the development of the pan-European transport network, including with international support, will give a powerful, positive, synergistic effect. Bulgaria is ready to participate in the process of updating critical transport infrastructure,” he said.

The Chairman of the Bulgarian Assembly also noted that Bulgaria is ready to provide methodological and expert assistance in developing policies for the restoration of the Ukrainian economy, ecology, as well as in the field of higher education.

“It is very important to increase resources to ensure the long-term democratic stability of Ukraine. Bulgaria would very much like to make its contribution in this direction,” Zhelyazkov said.
