Animals in Sofia Zoo Severely Affected by Russian Gas Cut

"About a third of the animals are vulnerable to cold," said the zoo's director Ivan Ivanov.
Bulgaria, the poorest state in the EU, is suffering hardest from the termination of Russian gas supplies over the ongoing Russia-Ukraine price dispute, as the country relies almost entirely on Russian gas supply.
