The parliamentary group of the Ataka nationalist party has insisted that Bulgaria should recognize the results from the referendum for Crimea’s joining to the Russian Federation and should voice its stance against the economic sanctions of the EU for Russia. The party’s leader Volen Siderov has demanded this decision to be taken at an emergency sitting of the parliament. Bulgaria has all reasons to recognize the right of the peoples to determine themselves, as well as direct democracy’s results, Siderov went on to say. The parliamentary groups of Coalition for Bulgaria and GERB have also prepared their declaration, but those haven’t been read yet.
