In addition to the many huge apartment blocks in some of the major cities being plunged into the cold (which is no laughing matter in mid winter in Bg), if this termination goes on for any period of time, it will have deep and far reaching effects on Bulgaria.
Many public buildings, Hospitals, schools etc rely on Natural Gas for heating.
The entire winter season at Borovetz will be at risk as all hotels and tourist establishments rely on Gas heating.
The Confederation of Employers and Industries announced that plants in Bulgaria are already losing at least 500 million leva PER DAY due to Gas shortages. They say that Bulgaria's glass production would be dealt a deadly blow by the termination of supply.
The second largest Fertilizer producer, "Neohim" announced it was shutting down all production facilities today. Apparently there are also major safety concerns associated with this cessation.
Companies are already laying off workers, and if this continues for any more than a few days, I'm sure wide scale lay offs and industrial shut downs will follow, with consequent catastrophic impact on the economy.
And this, at a time when Bulgaria can least afford it.
