The European Commission has filed a lawsuit before the Court of Justice of the EU against Bulgaria for non-compliance with the court's decision on air quality and the constant violation of the limit values ​​for particulate matter. The lawsuit could lead to fines, BTA has reported.

The European Commission has informed Bulgaria that it has not presented a long-term strategy for the renovation of buildings; that it does not fully implement European legislation on oil reserves; that it does not comply with all safety requirements for road tunnels. A final warning has also been sent due to persistent weaknesses in the implementation of EU nature protection legislation under Natura 2000.
