Bulgaria’s Government Adopts Hostile Attitude Towards Russia
September 15, 2017

A national security report adopted by Bulgaria’s cabinet has just been sent to lawmakers for consideration. It is yet to be debated by the parliament’s committee and in plenary. The document named Russia as one of the main foreign policy risks. This is the first time a Bulgarian government openly calls Russia a threat to the country’s national security. According to the document signed by PM Boyko Borisov, “the actions of Russia as a source of regional instability also threaten our basic goal of a united, free and peaceful Europe”. Russia’s increased naval presence is considered a matter of special concern. The opposition Bulgarian Socialist Party as well as many MPs from other parties do not agree with that conclusion.

January 17, 2016

The worsening situation on the fronts of the energy wars is forcing those directly involved and all other interested parties to revise their previous approaches. Signs that Bulgaria intends to resume construction of the South Stream gas pipeline project are a good example. In a New Year interview, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov admitted that the South Stream gas pipeline project was in the interests of his country, but had been halted as a result of interference by the US and the European Union, even though both the US and Europe knew that the project would be beneficial to Bulgaria, according to Borissov…
