In one notable case, Bulgaria discovered a sunken Soviet nonnuclear submarine located near its coast, where it poses a danger to navigation and a potential environmental hazard. 148 The Hungarian government would sell the property for a minimal fee in return for a commitment by the purchasers to remedy environmental degradation. 149 In addition, municipal investment is limited by the allocation of municipal resources to clean up operations at other industrial sites, which may be of more productive commercial use.

105 In either case, the Temelin project dispute became intertwined with the Black Triangle dispute. 108 In order to secure necessary support for the project from influential domestic political groups and Western governments, the Czech Republic redesigned the project in the early 1990s to include the latest in Western safety and operational technology and to operate as a completely closed system. 109 As a result, some environmental actors assert the project is now environmentally safe, yet it is economically untenable as the costs of additional safety and operational technology will vastly exceed any profits generated from energy production.

Given the history of the relationship between Russia and CEE states and Russia's lagging emergence from its doctrinal and practical lacuna of nonsocialist international law, it is unlikely Russia will participate within a regime of transboundary environmental protection and respond to attempts by the CEE states to use international law or the legal process to resolve its potential outstanding liability unless CEE states create an incentive for Russia to participate within such a regime. The most likely means for creating such an incentive would lie with CEE states, in particular Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, threatening to restrict oil and gas transshipment from Russia to Western Europe or for them to attach a transit tax for the purpose of creating an environmental remediation fund.
