“Bulgaria will support new European sanctions against Russia but they should not be at the expense of the European citizens,” Anton Kutev, spokesperson for the caretaker government said for public service TV BNT. Bulgaria cannot but condemn the violation of international order by Russia, or take into account the danger of an escalation of the conflict.

“We firmly believe there is no direct military threat to Bulgaria at the moment, though, at the same time, there is an enormous risk, enhanced by the nuclear weapons threats. But the biggest risk is still the economic risk,” Anton Kutev said. “The consequences of the war lead to an escalation of the inflation, a rise in the cost of living, and hence to political instability,” the caretaker cabinet spokesperson said.
