The fact that we are given just one minute for dignified silence throughout the year is symbolic, said President Rumen Radev, on the occasion of the Day of Hristo Botev and All Those Who Died for the Freedom of Bulgaria.

A minute of silence, in which we can most clearly realize the meaning and power of words. It is Botev who knew the true price of words. His words resonated over an entire era and continue to sound captivating today. The flag of Bulgarian freedom is in the hands of current generations. It depends on our will whether we would waive it high or we would pay respect to it only in museums, the Bulgarian head of state said in front of the monument to the poet in Botev's hometown of Kalofer.
