 “All citizens will be informed when such type of decision is made”, Minister Yanev added. In Stefan Yanev’s view,  neither Russia nor any other country intends to attack Bulgaria. "Diplomacy has not run out of options yet. Tension between NATO and Russia must subside. The decision regarding the possible deployment of additional NATO troops on Bulgarian territory will be made in February during the NATO Defense Ministers Meeting, whilst respecting the national interest of all NATO members", Minister Yanev further said.
