Because of the evidence provided by “Die Welt” that Bulgaria supplied gasoline and weaponry to Ukraine under the “Petkov” ministry, the political parties came under harsh criticism.
The previous cabinet was criticised by GERB and “Democratic Bulgaria,” which demanded that Bulgaria aid Kyiv for hiding the facts and using middlemen.
Asen Vassilev, co-chairman of “We Continue the Change, stated that Bulgaria shipped weaponry to several countries, including the United States, England, Poland, and Romania, after which these weapons were exported to Ukraine to continue their war with Russia.
The information about Bulgarian weapons in Ukraine was refuted by Ivan Chenchev of the Bulgarian Socialist Party, who noted that the thesis had even been checked within the parameters of parliamentary control.
“Die Welt found nothing new; it is obvious that Ukraine was receiving weapons at the time. The primary issue is this: Why did they lie? Why did Kiril Petkov and Kornelia Ninova lie? They informed us that not a single round was fired during that time. Kiril Petkov has recently been boasting about it, while Kornelia Ninova has continued to assert it, according to GERB’s Daniel Mitov.
There is no (new) news in the “Die Welt” publication, according to Stefan Yanev of “Bulgarian Rise,” who did not dispute the shipment of weapons from Bulgaria to Ukraine.
He said, “When it comes to business, when it comes to the manufacturing of Bulgarian weaponry, it is reasonable for it to seek out markets and realise its manufacturing in these markets, particularly in situations where there is a war, and these markets are, let’s say, more fast-moving.”
