Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and President Poroshenko set a goal of driving from Odesa to Varna, Bulgaria ‘in a few hours

Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and President Poroshenko set a goal of driving from Odesa to Varna, Bulgaria ‘in a few hours,’ Ukraine’s president posted on Facebook after the two leaders met Saturday in Kyiv. Currently the 660 km drive takes 12 hours. A native of the Bessarabia section of Odesa region, Poroshenko plans to inaugurate this fall an upgraded road from Odesa city to Reni. Ukraine’s major Danube River city, Reni is midway on the route to Varna. Last week, Ukrainian and Romanian transportation authorities agreed to speed up border crossings. Although ferry service between Odesa and Varna is suspended, bilateral trade is up 37% this year, Poroshenko reports.
