No imbalances would break out after the end of the moratorium on electricity prices, Prime Minister Kiril Petkov said in an interview with BNR. According to him, there would be no "frightening scenarios". He added such scenarios that come from GERB create attitudes and panic that electricity and gas prices were out of control. "The issue is used with the aim to show the government was not doing a good job. But the bills will show. "

PM Petkov also said the government would vote on a package of about 750 million euros to support business and energy distribution companies over the energy crisis.
