In June, eight parties received enough support from voters to enter parliament, and in three of them, those who sympathize with Bulgaria's alliance with Russia and Belarus outnumber those who support the European Union and NATO. In just one of them, more than half are about to turn to Moscow and Minsk, which together attacked Ukraine four months ago.
"In recent weeks, the issue of arms exports to Ukraine has been used harshly. An accusation has been made that we speak one thing in public and do another behind the scenes. And while we claimed that we did not export a single cartridge, they claimed that tons of weapons for billions of levs were sold at night with intermediaries".
"The parties are ignoring common sense. This decision of the National Assembly is a dangerous step towards involving Bulgaria in the war. The conflict will not be short, it will grow." This was stated to journalists by President Rumen Radev, who took part in the solemn consecration of the battle flags and the sacred flags of the Bulgarian Army.
At an extraordinary sitting of the Council of Ministers, the government will discuss the resignation of Defense Minister Stefan Yanev and it will be voted on at an extraordinary sitting of the National Assembly. This was announced by Prime Minister Kiril Petkov in an extraordinary statement at the Council of Ministers.
"We should not be in a hurry to label whether the military operation is limited or the situation in Ukraine is a war", Defense Minister Stefan Yanev told bTV.
He added that today will be dedicated to a number of additional events and meetings, including an extraordinary meeting with President Rumen Radev.
