Prime Minister Bulgaria Kiril Petkov repeatedly said that Sofia would not supply weapons to Kyiv. However, the Ukrainian ambassador continues to demand heavy Soviet-style military equipment. Minister of Economy Cornelia Ninova stated that the topic of supplies is closed, since the parliamentary decision has already been announced.
But the party “Democratic Bulgaria” is in favor of supporting Ukraine, including the shipment of weapons.
“Unfortunately, it did not receive the support of the People’s Assembly, so only the regulation on the repair of military equipment was adopted,” the deputy notes. Atanas Slavov in an interview with “Bulgarian People’s Radio” (BNR).
He is convinced that the Ukrainian conflict is entering a new stage. According to Slavov, the supply of Soviet weapons will allow the Bulgarian army to be re-equipped according to NATO standards.
“Obviously, Russia considers us an unfriendly country, so we should behave accordingly,” he said.
