-- Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov advised Russian diplomats to listen more carefully what he says before commenting on his words, after Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said Borisov should be ashamed for saying that he has stopped major Russian-backed energy projects to please the United States. Borisov pointed out he meant that U.S. projects in Bulgaria should not have the graft-prone elements that some Russian-backed projects that his government has stopped, had.
