Chairman of State Duma Committee of Energy Pavel Zavalny: South Stream is not suspended and can be revived again


In an interview for the Bulgarian National Radio the Chairman of the State Duma Committee of Energy of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Pavel Zavalny said that it was paradoxical, but meanwhile a fact, that the project for the construction of the South Stream gas pipeline, which had to cross Bulgaria, has not been suspended and that formally there wasn’t a single document that proved the opposite. In Pavel Zavalny’s view, it means that activities on that project were merely frozen and when a new decision is made about South Stream, it may be revived again.
