Bulgarian lawmakers voted at first reading in the parliamentary Energy Committee the proposal of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms to ban the export of oil products from Russia. 
According to the bill, importers of such products, as well as crude oil from Russia, must declare them to the Customs Agency seven days in advance and submit documents indicating the place of production. The ban is proposed to come into force on 5 December this year. 
During the debate, Transport Minister Hristo Alexiev said Lukoil's refinery in Burgas would shut down if it could not export.
