A group in Bulgaria protested against President Rumen Radev, who made pro-Russian remarks regarding the Russo-Ukrainian War.
The demonstrators, who were organized through social media, gathered in front of the presidential building.
The demonstrators, who chanted slogans against Russia and Radev, arguing that Russia was responsible for the war, demanded Radev’s resignation.
Radev’s reactionary remarks
President Radev made a statement on July 14 regarding the Russo-Ukrainian War, “It is Ukraine that insists that this war continue. All of Europe is paying the price for the war.” He stated that sending weapons to Ukraine would only prolong the war.
Prime Minister Nikolay Denkov, former Prime Minister Boyko Borissov, and pro-EU/NATO politicians responded to Radev.
The Ukrainian embassy in Sofia also condemned Radev in a statement on July 15 and said the country was defending its territory.
