Balkans |  President of Ukraine Zelensky in Bulgaria

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky visited the country at the invitation of the Bulgarian government, and met with President Rumen Radev.

Expressing his solidarity with the Ukrainian people in the open to the press part of the meeting, Radev said, “I have denounced the attack on your country from day one. Bulgaria has given a helping hand to thousands of Ukrainian citizens. However, I am not in favor of the delivery of Bulgarian weapons to Ukraine.” He said.

Expressing that the environment in the region is worrying enough, Radev said, “The dangers of security, peace and radiation are increasing in Europe. The crisis must be resolved diplomatically.” He said.

“War is not crazy.”

Responding to Radev’s position, Zelensky said, “This is not a crisis, this is a war. What would you do if you were in my place? If there had been a depression, millions of people would not have left the country.” Use phrases.

In response to Radev’s stance on giving arms to Ukraine, Zelensky continued:

“Don’t you support aid with arms so that your army does not weaken or Ukraine becomes stronger? If Russia comes here, all you have is not enough to fight it. Against a country of 160 million people, your strength will not be enough.

Ukrainians must fight so that the war does not reach Bulgaria, Poland or anywhere else, Zelensky emphasized, “we must think not only about Ukraine, but also about the future of Europe”. He said.

Support from the Parliamentarian to Ukraine

The Bulgarian parliament also took important legislative steps on the occasion of Zelensky’s visit.

He approved a statement supporting Ukraine’s accession talks to the European Union and NATO, along with the GERB party to form the coalition government of Prime Minister Nikolai Denkov.

Lawmakers also approved a resolution to review the country’s military munitions depots and talks to sell to Ukraine two nuclear reactors that the country had bought from Russia in the past but could not use.

The Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) and the racist-nationalist Vizrajan Party (Rebirth), which are controlled by Russia and carry out politics along the lines of the former Communist Party, opposed the resolutions.
