In the city of Kozloduy, where the Bulgarian nuclear power plant operates, street lights are turned off from 6 to 10 pm because of the high electricity prices. In December alone, the municipality paid 35,000 euros for electricity, which is 3 times more than usual.

Some of the residents went out on a silent protest in front of the municipal building wearing reflective vests and flashlights, bTV reports.

"It is ridiculous and tragic that there is no light in the nuclear capital of the country. This is a paradox," protesters said. The Municipality of Kozloduy recall that dozens of municipalities in the country have faced the same situation and added that although they have a nuclear power plant on their territory, they do not enjoy any privileges.
