President Rumen Radev issued a position describing Russia’s demand for the withdrawal of NATO forces from Bulgaria as unacceptable and pointless.

In the words of the Bulgarian President, there are no allied contingents and military equipment permanently deployed in the country. The Bulgarian head of state points out that the sovereign decision for such a permanent presence or temporary deployment belongs to Bulgaria, in accordance with the allied commitments of the country.

“The country does not accept ultimatums from anyone,” President Rumen Radev states.
