The parliament of Bulgaria yesterday (on May 4, 2022), in its session, witnessed a debate on the matter of supplying military assistance to Ukraine amid the Russian invasion. The discussion lasted for more than 5 hours.

Democratic Bulgaria and opposition GERB-UDF voted down the proposal, which was approved by the We Continue the Change (WCC) party. As the letter was written by the Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and was presented before the Bulgarian administration, the proposal went through some changes at a time.

A total of six requests have been listed by the Ukraine President in the letter sent to the Bulgarian parliament.

The proposal set by the WCC was approved by the members with 200 votes in its favour and 16 against it, and one abstention.

Dimitar Gochev of WCC in the parliament, during the debate, keeping his point forward, stated that the country could not provide the assistance which is not requested by Ukraine. The statement of Gochev comes in relation to the letter of Ukraine’s President, which does not demand the aid of supplying weaponry to the war-hit country.

“Bulgaria cannot give what is not asked of it”, Gochev cited.

On the other hand, the Bulgarian Socialist Party said that it supported the proposal of WCC because the proposal of providing supply weaponry was not there. BSP members gave continuous threats of quitting the coalition government if Bulgaria mandates supplying military assistance to Ukraine amid its war with Russia.

MP Daniel Mitov of GERB-UDF stated, “BSP won”. Meanwhile, pro-Kremlin Vuzrazhdane was the group that did not give its consent to any of the three proposals.

The war between Russia and Ukraine has now entered its 71st day. Amid war, millions of Ukraine nationals fled the land, migrating to other countries in order to save themselves and their loved ones.
