“In its most modern history, Bulgaria has been the target of attempts at domination – some of them successful, on the part of the Russian empire. Unfortunately, these Great Russian appetites continue in our day too, and our country is subject to targeted hybrid attacks,” said Prime Minister Nikolai Denkov at the This Is Europe debates at the European parliament, BGNES reports.

According to the Bulgarian prime minister, Putin’s secret services are taking advantage of Bulgaria’s economic links with Russia, as well as of the historical and cultural ties between the two nations to divide and polarize our society. “That is why Bulgaria’s full membership of the EU and NATO is the biggest guarantee that my country will continue on its European path. That is why we need to complete our Euro-Atlantic orientation by joining Schengen and the Eurozone,” Nikolai Denkov said.
