Bulgarian textbooks will talk about the "horrors of communism" and the "tyranny" of Todor Zhivkov

55
In the Bulgarian educational department stated that in the course stories For schoolchildren in Bulgaria, a detailed description of the concept of “communism” will be introduced. It is noteworthy that this concept will be revealed by the Bulgarian “specialists” not at all as a variant of the social and economic system based on social equality and public property, but in completely different colors.


Thus, Bulgarian high school students will be told about such “collateral communism” things as “violation of civil and political rights and freedoms”, “political tyranny” and “repressive apparatus”.

Also, schoolchildren in Bulgaria exclusively in a negative way through the new textbooks will tell about the period in power Todor Zhivkov.

For reference: Todor Zhivkov - the first person of the Bulgarian government from 1954 to 1989 years, the hero of Bulgaria, the hero of the Social Labor of Bulgaria, the hero of the Soviet Union. He actively opposed Gorbachev's restructuring and for strengthening ties between the socialist countries of the world. In 1990, 79-year-old Zhivkov was sentenced to a criminal sentence. In 1996, the Bulgarian Supreme Court decided to release the ex-general secretary of the Central Committee of the BKP from house arrest. Against this background and against the backdrop of the hardest economic crisis in Bulgaria, Todor Zhivkov’s popularity in the second half of the 90s began to grow actively. He passed away in the 1998 year. At the same time, most Bulgarian citizens of the older and middle generation still believe that the current Bulgarian politicians have not done for the country the 10 share of what was done by Todor Zhivkov.

Bulgarian textbooks will talk about the "horrors of communism" and the "tyranny" of Todor Zhivkov


In this regard, it is understandable the zeal of the current political elites to represent the name of Zhivkov as a synonym for "repression" and "tyranny." In turn, this proves that Bulgarian historians deliberately distort the very concept of “communism”, trying to negatively tune the younger generation of Bulgarians to this version of the social and economic system.

    The systematic upholding of all the light that was in the history of these countries. What will be exalted, the yoke of the Ottomans, Autrians, Germans? Or the current vassalism? They could be brothers, equal among equals, but chose the lot of puppets. It is very sad.

          Pasha, good evening. I’m somehow not worried about the Bulgarians. I’m used to changing their shoes in the air. That's because we have all kinds of nonsense in our books .. About the Great Patriotic War a couple of leaflets .. But about the “allies” twice as much. we have "if Urengoy" ..

      Everything inside Russia has already been charred, but it’s more pleasant for you to blame the Bulgarians for everything. Last year, Stalin was chosen as the most politician, wait, then in six months the third wave of de-Stalinization will begin. It's easier to blame on the Bulgarians

      Boyko Borisov, very far from communist views, said back in 2010: “If we can do at least a hundredth of what Todor Zhivkov has achieved for Bulgaria and what has been done over the years, this would be a huge success for the government. The fact that 20 years after his departure from power no one forgets him, shows how much he has done. For 20 years we have been privatizing what was built then. ”

The country was a powerful resort - Golden Sands, a powerful agronomic power - I still remember Bulgarian canned food, industrially powerful - produced personal computers, hydraulics, produced a bunch of consumer goods, clothes and shoes. True, the Bulgarians are such specific people, they worked for us as specialists, when they left, even cut pipes and heating batteries in the houses.

      Todor Zhivkov never confirmed these attempts. In his memoirs (Zhivkov T. Memoari. Sofia, 1997), published a year before his death:
      “I heard and read various insinuations of charlatans from politics and journalism about my“ intention ”to annex Bulgaria to the USSR. This lie is not only vulgar, but also absurd ... One thing is traditional Russian-Bulgarian friendship, and quite another is the national identity and sovereignty of Bulgaria, which have always been sacred to me ... "

      I don’t know about pipes and batteries, but back in 1986 I went to Bulgaria for an exchange, and 25 children were with me (they were recorded in my passport as my real children! That was the order)). So, the way we were received there, I will never forget. Everything, from young to old, familiar and unfamiliar, both in service and in everyday life! Such hospitality, such warmth I have never met anywhere else - everything is sincere!

    Zhivkov’s legacy is controversial, but in fact it’s not fundamental. We now have a dirty, Russophobic, network campaign - the implementation of the so-called `` Plan of Mogherini.

    “It’s clear to anyone who thinks a little that the GDP criterion does not express anything and does not say anything, but it helps to push the natives. For example, when white people pulled Bulgaria, they popularly explained that GDP growth is good, this is the highest meaning of life and in order to raise GDP, it is necessary to carry out privatization - to sell to those who have money all that is possible - nuclear power plants, electricity networks, sewers, water supply, land, etc. Bulgaria’s GDP has skyrocketed! the turnover instantly included assets that existed before, but belonged to natives who did not know how to use them on the market, and then rex-pax-fex, blah blah blah about investments, and the locals in Bulgaria no longer have anything. , power plants to the Germans, power networks to the Czechs. The British bought the land (and maybe not the British, who bought it, bought it through Cyprus). The VVP grew, and the Bulgarians were left behind.
    But nothing, is there any skin on the pope yet? So they began to rip her off. Previously, electricity was Bulgarian, and the Bulgarians paid a penny for it. Moreover, they exported it to the EU and Turkey. And then their power plants in the process of increasing GDP became German, and the Germans decided to bury the Bulgarian energy sector. They explained to the locals that nuclear power plants are bad, it is necessary to build wind generators and solar power plants. After all, locals were taken to the EU, and according to EU standards they should receive 16% of electricity from environmentally friendly sources. And “green electricity is 10 times more expensive!” And when the Bulgarians received electricity bills, they howled and rushed to rally. The government had to use the money that it received from the sale of nuclear power plants to gradually mitigate shock energy therapy. Check out the beauty of the brilliant operation: at first the Bulgarians sold their energy to the Westerners, then they gave them the proceeds, and something about 37 billion euros still remained in the terminal. Now the Bulgarians are accustomed to and pay for the light regularly 10 times more than before. And this is wonderful, because the contribution of the electric power industry to the country's GDP has grown! The funniest thing here is that electricity production has fallen and GDP has grown! This is real magic!
    True, the Bulgarians themselves from such happiness began to flee the country. Previously, there were 9 million, now 7 million remain, of which the Bulgarians themselves are only 5 million, and the rest are gypsies and Turks. But here there is reason for joy, because GDP is expressed not only in absolute figures, but also per capita. So if your GDP falls, but the population decreases even faster, it means that per capita GDP is growing. So everything is fine! Bulgaria is on the right track! Agriculture has died, the chemical industry has died, science has died, the people living in the hinterland live by candlelight, the country is deep in debt, but "the dynamics are positive," as Western economic shamans say, counting their milk yield ...
