"That means let somebody else get the paper work foryou, permitions etc. and we will participate in the implementation."

That's a lousy translation of "Trittbrettfahrer"! In English, a Trittbrettfahrer is merely a copycat.

Yea but the french use their own technology. Look at their safety requirements and implementation.

Well the german guys are always satisfied when they can jump on an project. In German its called 'Trittbrettfahrer' . That means let somebody else get the paper work foryou, permitions etc. and we will participate in the implementation.
So the BUlgarian Dunkey did the job fought the idea for a new nuclear plant" for the benefit of South Eastern Europe", and gives now that benefit to the german company. What else could you expect from dish lickers? An future oriented policy? New orientation? No there is only one ally and way, with the Germans on the Back of the Russian... LOL
