Bulgarian Socialist Party
Leader of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy Kornelia Ninova told bTV that Russia is a friendly country towards Bulgaria. According to her, this is the opinion of the majority of Bulgarians, and therefore a large percentage did not want to send military aid to Ukraine, which has been the subject of military action by Russia since February 24.
"If the Council of Ministers decides to export weapons and ammunition to Ukraine, the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) will leave the coalition, we will wait to see what will be voted on," Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Industry Kornelia Ninova told media in the village of Parvenets.
Exactly one year after the last regular elections for the National Assembly, former prime minister Boyko Borissov's party GERB is ahead of current prime minister Kiril Petkov's "We Continue the Change" as the first political force in Bulgaria. This is shown by the data from a national survey, co-financed and conducted jointly by bTV and Market Links.
