"The sad fate of other project, South Stream when our pipeline system had to enter directly the European Union, to one of the countries – Bulgaria is known. I will remind that the Bulgarian colleagues assured us that they will fight for South Stream... Eventually Bulgaria under pressure has from the outside refused this project. Now they regret, now say about receiving our gas through "The Turkish stream". Very much it wouldn't be desirable that the whole Europe looked as Bulgaria, I have shown such weakness and inability to protect the interests" — Putin has told.
