nyn: Ray is running (Fight dirty by elucreh)
Ok, so I managed both to back up my lj over at insanejournal, and get a ljarchive copy on my hard drive, using instructions from this post. *eyes lj* That is not an invitation for you to go down, lj.

Also, we, and by we and mean Bulgaria, are on the verge of a serious(-er) crisis, thanks to the quarrel between Russia and Ukraine(in which we have -absolutely- no part). We rely on Russia for all of our gas supply and we were completely cut off, when they stopped the gas flow for Ukraine. We don't have enough natural gas reserves to live on, and what back up reserves we have will last us till the end of the month, if rations are cut down. At least Varna doesn't have central heating, and we don't have gas at my home, so we're not immediately hit by the consequences. But if things stay as they are, we're in for an economical crashdown. There's already talk of power restrictions and schools and hospitals left without heat. Fan-fucking-tastic.
(And I just bet the EU's going to come up with a reason for us not to be able to restart the recently stopped nuclear reactors of Kozloduy.)

I knew Russia had cut off gas to Ukraine (and the Eu were told years ago that Europe needed to stop relying in Russian gas) but had no idea things were so bad for you. Nuclear is at the momwnt the only viable option *sigh*

Also *hugs*

Well, it's not only us, but we seem to be worse off. Typical :P. I hope they finish negotiations and monitoring and whatever the hell they need to do soon, because the cold's going to be the least of our problems if things stay that way for a long time.
Two of our nuclear central's reactors were deemed "unsafe" (more like inconvenient) by the EU and after a lot of protesting were finally shut down last(I think) year and I just don't see them allowing that to be reversed.

*hugs back* Thank you!
