There are still settlements in distress. Teams are constantly working to fix accidents. 590 locations in the country are currently experiencing power supply problems. This is what the Minister of Energy Rumen Radev said in the show "More from the day" on BNT.
"We had an extreme weather situation. This wet snow, accompanied by strong winds, contributed to many fallen trees and damage to many power stations. More than 2000,<> people work in the field," he said.
Rumen Radev was born on August 4, 1968 in Silistra. On June 6, 2023, he was elected Minister of the Republic of Bulgaria, saying that the anger of the people is understandable.

The teams are doing their best to eliminate the accidents, he assured and added that the state has plans for action in such situations, as all teams have. "Access to the damaged sites was impossible and not due to lack of off-road equipment, there were fallen trees that compromised air networks," the energy minister explained.
"I am convinced that everyone understands that there is no way for volunteers to repair damage to the power grid and thank God. I hope that the emergency operations will be completed within tomorrow," Rumen Radev further said.
