All decisions, including measures to avoid negative economic effects that the government will take in relation to the Ukrainian crisis, will be according to the development of the situation. This was what Prime Minister Kiril Petkov said after the meeting of the Security Council to the government. He pointed out that Bulgaria was a loyal ally in NATO and the unity of the Alliance was the strongest response to the crisis.

Bulgaria does not want U.S. troops on its territory, but is ready to accept French soldiers, BNR correspondent in Brussels Angelina Piskova reported, quoting a well-informed diplomatic source.

Speaking to the BNR's Horizont program, the chairman of the Sofia Security Forum, Yordan Bozhilov, described the information as "false news", which was part of hybrid actions, aimed at separating NATO and the EU.
