Sofia, Bulgaria: Ambassador of Russia to Bulgaria Eleonora Mitrofanova, in a recent video message, giving statement notified that “Russia is not having any intention of occupying Ukraine”.
Adding to the above statement, she then said that a continuous weekly update would be provided by her on the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
Mitrofanova said, “The Russian Federation has no plans to occupy the territory of Ukraine. All the possible measures are being taken – preserving the lives and security of civilians. The strikes are carried out only on military sites using high-precision weapons”.
Following the above statement, the Russian Ambassador then added, “Every effort has been made in the last two days to secure humanitarian corridors. The evacuation of residents is difficult, as Ukrainian nationalist formations hinder the organization. They use civilians as human shields”.
She further shared information, citing that, to date, at least 2,911 military sites have been destroyed, and 90% of military airports of Ukraine have been smashed.
“The Americans have planned to work with avian & reptile pathogens and then study the possibilities of transmitting African swine fever and anthrax to pigs. They conducted experiments with samples of bat coronavirus. The goal was to create biological weapons to covert the spread of deadly pathogens. These pathogens can be dangerous for the whole of Europe”.
The Ambassador then added that Bulgaria’s decision of closing its airspace for Russian aeroplanes and expulsions of two Russian diplomats by Prime Minister Kiril Petkov would have a negative impact on the diplomatic ties of Russia and Bulgaria.
Further underlining the expulsions, she stated, “These actions would not go unanswered. We are not yet imposing an embargo on Nord Stream 1 gas supplies, but European politicians are actively pushing us to do so”.
“Apart from this, everyone who knows that the supply of oil and oil products from Russia today is the most competitive for the European market. The abandonment of Russian oil will have severe consequences for the world and especially for the European market. At the same time, it is not possible to quickly replace the volume of Russian oil for the European marketr; it will take more than a year”.
