Due to the discovery on Sunday evening of a drone carrying a mine on the seashore near Bulgaria's Shabla, later today the Minister of Defense Todor Tagarev will be heard in the parliamentary defense committee, announced its chairman Hristo Gadjev. 
The mine was disposed of today at 11 am. 
"I think this is important, as the topic is sensitive enough and speculation on the topic should not be allowed," Gadjev pointed out. 

Earlier today, Tagarev suggested that the drone was connected to Russia's war against Ukraine and said that "these types of events happen on a weekly basis." 

The BSP demanded Tagarev's resignation. "It is impossible that from last night until this morning no one reacted claiming it was impossible to react in the dark part of the day", commented the socialist leader Kornelia Ninova.

Listen to the daily news from Bulgaria presented in "Bulgaria Today" podcast, available in Spotify.
