Bulgarians are on their way to put into operation a "Chernobyl" power plant, according to Romanian daily Adevarul.

Just 100 km away from Bucharest Bulgaria intends to build up the Belene nuclear plant, which was initially planned and will be equipped with Russian-style units.

The newspaper points out the worrisome fact that the plant is being built on a sandy ground with frequented seismic activity.

Bulgaria's second nuclear plant in Belene was re-launched for construction after a government decision end of last year. It had been set to a halt in 1992 due to protests from environmentalists.
