Hundreds of Bulgarians expressed their position for Bulgarian neutrality over the war in Ukraine, shouting "NATO, out!" and "No to war!" in front of the Ministry of Defense. The protest, organized by the Vazrazhdane Party, was attended not only by supporters of the party, but also by many Bulgarians who oppose involvement in the military conflict.

The protest, which started in front of the Ministry of Defense later moved to the building of the Council of Ministers where the meeting of Prime Minister Kiril Petkov and US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin took place. The leader of "Vazrazhdane" Kostadin Kostadinov said that his party would not allow "foreign countries to rule on the fate of Bulgarians". According to Kostadinov, the only role this country could play in the current conflict was that of a mediator between Ukraine and Russia in the sphere of diplomacy.
