The gas interconnector with Greece should become part of the strategic objects of importance for our national security - this is what Bulgarian Ministry of Energy has insisted to the Council of Ministers.
"The facility has become of paramount importance for national security since the start of the war in Ukraine," the reasoning for the request reads. 
It also points out that the possible suspension of gas supplies from Russia makes it necessary to have secure supply routes. The document will be put up for public consultation.
