Bul­gar­ian con­cerns.

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

Bul­garia would face a “ma­jor cri­sis” if mil­i­tary ten­sions in the Black Sea were to worsen, Prime Minister Boyko Borisov said yesterday, af­ter Rus­sia’s cap­ture of three Ukrainian naval ships and crews last month prompted fears of an es­ca­la­tion. Borisov said the Black Sea should be “for tourism and pipe­lines, not ships.” Bul­garia has 378 kilo­me­ters of coast­line along the Black Sea. “The en­try of ships, com­bined with the en­try of such a mighty Rus­sian Navy on the other side, will in­evitably lead to a ma­jor cri­sis,” Borisov told re­porters in par­lia­ment.
