Restaurant Owner Named Stalin May Leave Bulgaria in the Dark.
Bulgaria's National Electricity Company have warned that a restaurant owner is threatening to leave the whole country without electricity. Stalin Avramov has surrounded a pole of the Petrohan grid that connects Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant and Sofia with breeding ponds for the fish he serves in his restaurant near the northern town of Berkovitsa. The law states that construction in a radius of 9 meters from such poles is forbidden, but Avramov's ponds receive nevertheless. The water of the ponds is slowly eating away at the soil and entering the 400-kilovolt grid and undermining the base of pole 244. Should the pole fall down, the whole of Sofia will be left in the dark and the country's electricity grid may crash completely. Greece may also suffer dire consequences, the electricity company warned.
