Bulgaria's "action plan" for saving Units 3&4 of the Nuclear Power Plant in Kozloduy includes one big event per month, Economy and Energy Minister Rumen Ovcharov said Wednesday.

The fact that Bulgaria is dwelling hard on into the issue doesn't mean that we will automatically reopen the two nukes, Ovcharov said, adding that he wouldn't want to create illusions.

The minister introduced the plan to the Council of Ministers for discussion. It states that each monthly event would e supported by the state, EU institutions and representatives from the neighbouring Balkan countries that would suffer energy shortages. These countries have already started to feel the shortage, Ovhcarov said.

I hope that our efforts eventually lead to the revival of the nukes, the minister added. Otherwise, the country would have to push for plan B, which involves huge compensations for Bulgaria for the closure of the units.
