« Protesters gathered in Sofia to join the ‘March of Peace’ rally against Bulgarian intervention in the Russia-Ukraine conflict on Wednesday, during the Bulgarian Unification Day.
Footage features protesters gathering with the so-called ‘March of Peace’, and holding flags and banners reading messages such as ‘In Bulgaria they are born to live in peace’, ‘Bulgaria zone of peace’, and ‘Referendum for peace and sovereignty’.
Nako Stefanov, an activist, expressed concern about know ‘step by step, they continue to push Bulgaria on the path of war’.
« Unfortunately we are ruled by people for whom we are not valuable. Our lives are not valuable. Don’t be fooled at all that they think about us », added Tsveteslava Galabova, another participant in the rally.
In July 2023, the Bulgarian government announced a large one-time military aid package to support Ukraine amid its war against Russia. This marked the country’s first official decision to support Kiev since the armed conflict started.
Moscow launched a military offensive in Ukraine in late February 2022 after recognising the independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), claiming that Kiev had failed to guarantee their special status under the 2014 Minsk Agreements, and urging Ukraine to declare itself officially neutral and give assurances that it would never join NATO.
Kiev denounced the Russian action as an invasion. Zelensky imposed martial law throughout the country, announcing a general mobilisation, while the EU and the US imposed several rounds of sanctions on Moscow. »
