Bulgaria will be uncompromising in the face of a threat to its national security, said outgoing Prime Minister Boyko Borissov. "Fortunately, the Russian Federation has a very serious ambassador to Bulgaria. Our trade with them is growing and it is wonderful! We have given them the opportunity to pass gas through our gas pipes, in return for transit fees. But I have told them learly: "You will not spy in Bulgaria"! And there we are uncompromising. Long before the Czechs, long before others we have worked. The partner services know how long we have been working!", Borissov said.

We have no interest in severing diplomatic relations with Russia. After an analysis, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will issue a decision on the ongoing investigation into a possible Russian intervention in the explosions in Bulgarian weapons warehouses, said Bulgaria's outgoing Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva. She told Nova TV that there is a reaction every time there is hostile action on the territory of Bulgaria. 

"There is no way anyone can go to blow up a warehouse or attempt murder simply because they have decided to. I cannot know if Putin said yes, but this cannot happen without the knowledge of higher-ranking officials," the minister explained.
Zaharieva's statement has been made on April 29, when Russian Ambassador to Bulgaria Eleonora Mitrofanova has been summoned to the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry for talks.
