If it were not for the USSR, only the Sofia region would remain from Bulgaria, said Russian Ambassador to Bulgaria, Eleonora Mitrofanova in her reaction to the initiative to remove the Soviet Army monument in central Sofia.

  • If it were not for the USSR, only the Sofia region would remain from Bulgaria, because then, after the Second World War, there was talk of the division of Bulgaria and only the Soviet Union did not allow it to be divided. Not only did the USSR not allow it to be divided, but it also left Dobrudja to its gain. Therefore, no matter how complex the relations are, a more objective view of history is needed, Mitrofanova said in an interview with Pogled.info.

Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, there were insulting writings about Russian President Vladimir Putin on the monument dedicated to “the Soviet Army – the liberator of the grateful Bulgarian people” and it was painted in Ukrainian colors.
