Russia is one step away from breaking off diplomatic relations with Bulgaria


Russian Ambassador to Bulgaria Eleonora Mitrofanova believes that diplomatic relations between the two countries may be severed in the near future due to the upcoming expulsion of 70 employees of the Russian embassy in Sofia.


Bulgarian Prime Minister Kirill Petkov said earlier that declaring Russian diplomats persona non grata was not his sole decision - it was dictated by data from the State Agency for National Security (SANS). The relevant department reports were dated May and June.

In the information of the agency, in particular, there is information allegedly about the work of Russian diplomats for the Russian special services. In this regard, it was decided to expel these people from the country. The plane for the employees of the Russian embassy should arrive on July 3.

In response to such a demarche, the Russian diplomatic mission demanded that the Bulgarian government cancel the decision to expel. In particular, it is envisaged that if by July 1 Sofia does not withdraw two notes with a list of Russian diplomats who are ordered to leave Bulgaria, the Russian Embassy in Sofia may be closed. This also means the automatic closure of the Bulgarian embassy in Moscow.

Diplomatic relations can even be severed! Moscow will decide

- Mitrofanova said in an interview with the Bulgarian TV channel BNT.

    It is high time, at least using the example of one US mongrel, to show how not to deal with Russia, to completely break off all relations, including economic ones, and set up a blockade on our part, let them whine in the geyrop and the United States under the doors begging for handouts rogue.

    The rupture of diplomatic relations will occur automatically. No staff, no embassy, ​​no relationship.
    But this is not enough. We need a break in economic relations. I do not know if Bulgaria receives gas through Turkey, but this channel must be completely blocked. Even if Bulgaria finds gas on the side, this will mean the loss of a similar volume from the total supply to Europe.
    And by and large, it is necessary to cut off gas supplies completely. And first of all to Germany and to limit deliveries to Turkey. The resale of gas should be completely excluded.

    Zs Something with the site. Somehow it doesn’t work very normally and adequately. We weren’t accidentally attacked by the “Amazons” there?

    Many Russians, not necessarily oligarchs, own property in Bulgaria. If diplomatic relations are broken, they will have a hard time. Even though it was their choice

    What kind of blockade are you talking about and how are you going to implement it?

    Breaking the relationship is essential. At least in order to straighten the brains of the "brothers".
    Two messages show the arrogance of the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry

    The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry rejected a note from the Russian embassy, ​​which demanded that the decision to expel 70 Russian diplomats be withdrawn.

    During the conversation, Minister Genchovska presented the Bulgarian position demanding that Russia withdraw its note from June 30, 2022.

    Listen, you syklivye powers that be - you would at least be silent already and would not be dishonored throughout the country! It's just ridiculous to watch your attempts. Who promised to hit the decision-making centers? I ask - WHO? Why didn't they hit? If you didn’t want to, then there was nothing to wag your tongue!
    Attitude towards you is on the limit, keep that in mind. For lately your decisions have been, let's face it, a betrayal of Russia's interests.

    This nonsense continues every time. But the Lithuanian, Estonian, and Latvian embassies still stand with their windows not boarded up.
