According to the latest data, inflation is about 19% on an annual basis, Bulgaria's caretaker Minister of Economy Nikola Stoyanov announced to Nova TV. He does not expect a bigger increase in inflation until the end of the year. He believes that after the measures taken by the government, the price of electricity will not increase, and other fuels will also become cheaper.

Stoyanov said he unconditionally supported economic sanctions against Russia, but stressed that the Bulgarian economy was one of the most dependent in the EU on Russia. The minister firmly stated that at the moment Bulgaria is not buying Russian gas from Gazprom in any way.
