Bulgarian authorities urged compatriots to share salaries with Ukrainians


European policy continue to make statements calling on fellow citizens to give up material goods in favor of Ukraine. So, officials from Germany have already noted, calling for a reduction in the consumption of gas and products supplied from Russia.


Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov went even further and, in a post on his personal page on the social network Facebook banned in Russia, advised every citizen of the country to donate money to Ukraine in the amount of one salary.

I call on every citizen of Bulgaria to donate, like me, one month's salary

- wrote Mr. Petkov.

The reaction of the inhabitants of Bulgaria to such a call was expected. They accused their prime minister of cowardice and neglecting their duties to improve the standard of living of the country's citizens.

Previously, Petkov was criticized by two opposing parties in parliament. The Bulgarian Socialist Party advocates the restoration of friendly relations with Russia, while "Democratic Bulgaria", on the contrary, calls for arms and financial assistance to Ukraine. The situation is complicated by the fact that both parties are part of a coalition that provides a majority in parliament when making key decisions. Petkov, on the other hand, is trying to please both sides, which is also noted in the comments of ordinary Bulgarians.

At the moment, there is no direct military aid from Sofia to Ukraine, but the Bulgarian government is selling Soviet weapons to Kyiv through the American company Ultra Defense Corp.

The reaction of Ukraine to Petkov's appeal turned out to be mixed. On the one hand, the country's Foreign Minister Kuleba thanked the Bulgarian prime minister for the initiative, on the other hand, he criticized him for the lack of decisive military assistance.

    So, officials from Germany have already noted, calling for a reduction in the consumption of gas and products supplied from Russia.

    And at the same time they raised their salaries by 300 euros!

    Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov went even further and, in a post on his personal page on the social network Facebook banned in Russia, advised every citizen of the country to donate money to Ukraine in the amount of one salary.

    I remember that in the USSR they also collected money to help blacks in the United States. Now these blacks are promising to tear the Russian economy to shreds.
    And let the Bulgarians ask about the oppression of the Bulgarians in the Odessa region.

    Note that the unofficial capital of the Bulgarians of Bessarabia is called Bolgrad in the west of the Odessa region. The highest concentration of the Bulgarian population is in Bolgradsky (61%), Artsyzsky (39%) and Tarutinsky (38%) districts of the Odessa region.
    The Ukrainian government is indeed planning an administrative reform that could divide the Bolgrad region into several territorial communities where ethnic Bulgarians would no longer be the majority.

    These "brothers", starting from the 1st World War, have always been on the side of Russia's enemies. In the 19th century, the captured Osman Pasha told our generals:
    "Why did you shed so much Russian blood for this vile and ungrateful people?"
    This is about the Balkan brothers.
    But even more vile and unfaithful peoples are Georgians and Armenians. They consistently betrayed all their allies, starting at least with the Byzantine Empire.
    There were no exceptions.
    These folks have lost all the wars in their history. And they were saved from total destruction only by the intervention of Russia.

    And why not do this to the authorities of England, because they are the root cause of the situation?! (I'm only talking about Europe)

    It's very simple - we will collect money for Ukraine, but we will not offend our own relatives. We are also familiar with Russia.
