July 6 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria and Ukraine signed a memorandum on cooperation in energy during a visit by Ukrainian president Volodymir Zelenskyy to Sofia on Thursday.
Talks have started between the two countries to explore whether the Russian-made reactors for Belene nuclear power plant could be used at one of the nuclear power plants in Ukraine, Bulgarian prime minister Nikolay Denkov told a joint news conference with Zelenskyy after the signing ceremony, said as seen in a video by public broadcaster BNT.
"I am glad that energy has become one of the priorities for cooperation between Ukraine and Bulgaria," Zelenskiyy said.
