Official unconsciousness. Why Bulgaria is betraying Russia

241
Bulgaria betrays its own history. Official Sofia does not want to remember the country's liberation from occupation by Turkey and the Third Reich. The other day, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Bulgaria stated that Russia should not support the “dubious historical thesis” that the USSR’s struggle with Nazi Germany was the liberation of Europe. The Bulgarian department also noted that the Red Army "brought the peoples of Central and Eastern Europe half a century of repression."

How Russia freed Bulgaria from the Turkish yoke


Russians and Bulgarians have long-standing national, cultural, linguistic and spiritual ties. Few people now remember that during the time of the Russian prince Svyatoslav Igorevich (the Grand Duke of Kiev in the 945-972 gg.) Rus-Russians and Bulgarian-Slavs were almost one people. When the soldiers of Svyatoslav fought in Bulgaria, they were almost no different from the local population. The Bulgarians recently adopted Christianity, and pagan cults (including the cult of Perun) were still fresh in the countryside, language, spiritual and material traditions were one. Russes and Bulgarians belonged to the same ethnocultural and linguistic community. It is not surprising that Svyatoslav himself planned to transfer the capital of Russia to the Danube, to Bulgaria.

This deep feeling of belonging to a single people was traced also afterwards. Ordinary Bulgarians always felt like Russian brothers. In the 1380 — 1390 years, a long period of Ottoman occupation began. Ottoman Turks occupied most of the Balkan Peninsula, including weakened by previous wars and fragmented Bulgaria. A difficult time came for the Slavs and Christians of the Balkans - the Turkish yoke. Christians were greatly curtailed in their rights and freedoms, taxed heavily. Including the “blood tax” when the Turks took the boys to serve in the Janissaries corps. Young men were brought up by Muslims, forgot their national and religious roots, became cruel enemies of their fellow countrymen. At the same time, the Slavs were forbidden to live in certain lands, a policy of Islamization and consecration was pursued.

It is not surprising that the Slavs, including the Bulgarians, repeatedly revolted, tried to resist. Local partisans fought against the Turks - Hajduki, Chetniks. However, all revolts were drowned in blood. Without external support, the local national liberation movement had no chance. The real hope of liberation among the Balkan Slavs and Christians appeared only with the growth of Russia's power. The Russian Empire waged a tough battle with Turkey for supremacy in the Black Sea, the Caucasus and the Balkans. Step by step, the Russians squeezed a strong enemy, carried liberation to the Balkan peoples. Tens of thousands of Russian soldiers laid their heads to free the Balkans from Turkish rule.

The freedom of most of Bulgaria was brought by the Russian-Turkish war 1877 — 1878. In 1875, the Serbs of Bosnia revolted. In 1875 — 1876 anti-Turkish uprising began in Bulgaria. It was most brutally suppressed by the Ottomans. Tens of thousands of Bulgarians were killed, robbed and raped by the Turks and their irregular formations (Albanians, Kurds, etc.). Russian society, which always painfully perceived the oppression of the Balkan Slavs and Christians, was deeply outraged. Russian volunteers traveled to the Balkans to fight the Turks, public organizations, the church and newspaper editorial offices raised funds to help refugees. Serbia and Montenegro opposed Turkey in 1876. Serbia suffered a severe defeat and was saved only by Russia's tough stance.

Official Petersburg, which was traditionally cautious, fearing a shout from the West (in addition, military reform had not yet been completed, the economy was not in the best position), for some time tried to exert diplomatic pressure on Constantinople. Under pressure from the European public, frightened by the massacres in Bulgaria, England and France also demanded reform from Turkey. In December 1876, Russia demanded that Turkey recognize the autonomy of Bulgaria and Bosnia under the control of world powers. The Turks ignored this demand.

In 1877, Russia opposed Turkey. The war was hard. The Russian army was unable to immediately force the Balkan Mountains, stuck in a siege of Plevna. Nevertheless, the Russian army, with the support of volunteers from the Bulgarians, Romanians and Serbs, managed to free Romania and Bulgaria from the Turks. The advanced Russian forces, led by Skobelev, reached Adrianople and were on the outskirts of Istanbul. In fact, the Russian army could occupy Constantinople and completely solve the issue of the liberation of the Balkans from Turkish rule. However, Petersburg is again (as in the 1829 year: “Our Adrianople! Why the Russian army did not take Constantinople ") did not dare to take Constantinople and put an end to the centuries-old historical confrontation with Turkey. Fear of the West played a key role. Petersburg feared that Austria, France and England would come out against Russia, as during the Crimean War. Although the German Empire, where Bismarck ruled, at that time hinted that it would support Russia in exchange for the possibility of resolving the French question. It was a reasonable exchange.

3 March 1878 g. (19 February old style) was signed the San Stefano Peace Treaty. Turks recognized the independence of Serbia, Romania and Montenegro. Serbia and Romania were significantly expanded. Bosnia and Herzegovina became autonomy. Bulgaria became an autonomous principality, at first under Russian rule and only formally dependent on Turkey. Bulgaria included ethnic Bulgarian territories in Moesia, Thrace and Macedonia. As a result, Bulgaria extended from the Danube to the Aegean Sea, from the Black Sea to Lake Ohrid. Turkey paid indemnity to Russia and ceded a number of territories in the Caucasus and Europe. 3 March became a national holiday in Bulgaria - Day of the liberation of Bulgaria from the Ottoman yoke. Later, hundreds of monuments were erected in Bulgaria in honor of the Russian liberators. Including the Freedom Monument at Shipka Pass, in memory of the Russian soldiers who died for the liberation of the fraternal Bulgarian people.


Signing the San Stefan Treaty


Stolen victory


However, the "enlightened West" opposed this agreement, especially England, which moved the fleet to the Dardanelles, and Austria-Hungary. London and Vienna did not want to strengthen Russia's position in the Balkans, where Russia could get a powerful strategic bridgehead and access to the Mediterranean Sea through its ally Bulgaria. Under pressure from the West, St. Petersburg lost, the fruits of the Russian victory were partially stolen. On July 1 (14) the Berlin Treaty was signed, which was the result of the work of the Berlin Congress, convened at the initiative of the Western powers to revise the terms of the San Stefan Treaty to the detriment of Russia and the Slavic peoples of the Balkan Peninsula.

Bulgaria was divided into three parts: an autonomous principality from the Danube to the Balkans with its center in Sofia (formally a vassal of Turkey); Bulgarian lands south of the Balkans formed the autonomous province of the Turkish Empire - Eastern Rumelia with a center in Philippopolis; Macedonia - lands to the Adriatic and the Aegean were returned to the Turks without any changes in status. The independence of Serbia, Montenegro and Romania was recognized, but the territorial acquisitions of Serbs and Montenegrins were curtailed. Austria-Hungary received the right to occupy Bosnia and Herzegovina. Russia had to abandon some of the acquisitions in the Caucasus. A number of contradictions inherent in Berlin became the prerequisites for future Balkan wars and the First World War.

Bulgaria on the side of the Germans


Later, at the proposal of the Russian Emperor Alexander II, Bulgaria was headed by the nephew of the wife of the Russian sovereign Maria Alexandrovna Alexander Battenberg (1879 — 1886) from the German Battenberg dynasty, then Ferdinand I (1887 — 1918) from the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha dynasty. Bulgaria with the consent of Russia, Germany and Austria-Hungary in 1885 merged with its western part (Eastern Rumelia), in 1908 it declared itself completely independent and became a kingdom.

Russia liberated Bulgaria, but could not attach it politically, economically, and even culturally. Sofia is gradually leaning towards Vienna, Berlin and Paris. The Germans and the French finance the country's economic development, in particular, the construction of railways. Relations with St. Petersburg are deteriorating, up to the severance of diplomatic relations, which were restored only in 1896.

Bulgaria, with the support of Austria-Hungary, Germany and France, is preparing for a war with Turkey over Macedonia. Macedonia has also become a disputed territory for Bulgaria, Serbia and Greece. During the First Balkan War 1912 — 1913, the Balkan states defeated Turkey and took its European possessions from it, but then fought for production. Serbia and Greece entered into an alliance against Bulgaria. Germany and Austria-Hungary invaded Bulgaria on the Serbs. In the summer of 1913, Bulgaria launched a war against Serbia. Against Bulgaria, Montenegro and Greece, and then Romania and Turkey, came out to profit at the expense of the Bulgarians. Sofia lost the war, was territorially circumcised and humiliated. This shame and thirst for revenge finally pushed Bulgaria into the arms of the German bloc. Serbia became the number one enemy for Sofia. In World War I, Bulgaria sided with the German bloc. Her performance in 1915 led to the rout and occupation of Serbia.

Bulgaria was defeated along with Germany. The Neuilly Treaty of November 27, 1919 became a heavy burden for the country. Bulgaria curtailed in favor of Serbia, Greece and Romania, deprived of access to the Aegean Sea. I had to pay a contribution. Bulgarian weapons reduced to a minimum, canceled the draft, banned from having Aviation and heavy weapons. Not surprisingly, in the 20s, the extreme right-wing (fascist) regime of Tsankov was established in Bulgaria, which carried out repressions against communists and socialists. At this time, Sofia was able to build good relations only with fascist Italy. In the second half of the 1930s, Sofia began to lean toward an alliance with the Third Reich. Economic and military cooperation with Germany developed. With the outbreak of World War II, Sofia became an ally of the Reich. Under pressure from Berlin, Romania returned the southern Dobrudja to the Bulgarians.

In 1941, Bulgaria signed the Triple Pact (the union of Germany, Italy and Japan), but did not participate in hostilities. The Bulgarian territory was used by the Nazis to invade Yugoslavia. Bulgarian troops occupied Western Thrace, Macedonia and Western territories. In December 1941, Sofia declared war on the United States and England, but until the end of the war she tried to maintain peace with the USSR. At the same time, the Germans used the transport infrastructure of Bulgaria (airports, seaports, railways and highways) for military purposes, and the Bulgarian troops were used to occupy the territories of Yugoslavia and Greece.

Bulgarian operation


In the spring and summer of 1944, Moscow repeatedly demanded that Sofia break its alliance with Germany. After the crushing victories of the Red Army in 1944, the defeat of the Germans in Moldova, the liberation of Romania and the withdrawal of the 3-th Ukrainian Front on the Romanian-Bulgarian border, Bulgaria had to make a choice. On 26 on August 1944, Sofia declared neutrality in the war between Germany and the USSR, and demanded the withdrawal of the German army from Bulgarian territory. However, the Germans continued to use the territory of Bulgaria to move their troops, German ships arrived in Bulgarian ports and German forces were stationed on Bulgarian land. Therefore, on September 5, the USSR declared war on Bulgaria, after which the Bulgarian authorities broke off relations with Hitler. On 8 of September, the troops of the 3-th Ukrainian Front began the Bulgarian operation. They did not meet the resistance of the Bulgarian army. On the night of 8 on 9 September, an uprising began in Sofia. On September 9, the power of the Patriotic Front was established in the country, headed by K. Georgiev. The leading positions in the Patriotic Front were occupied by the Communists and their supporters.

The government of the Patriotic Front declared war on Germany and Hungary, dismissed the parliament, the police (created the people's militia), undertook the purge of the state apparatus and the restructuring of the army, and banned Nazi organizations. War criminals were brought to justice. In Bulgaria, the monarchy was canceled as a result of a referendum. Switching to the side of the anti-fascist coalition allowed Bulgaria to maintain Southern Dobrudja. In the 1946 Bulgaria was headed by the “Bulgarian Lenin” - George Dimitrov, the country became part of the socialist camp.

16-I Union Republic and the Bulgarian economic miracle at the expense of the Russians


After World War II, Bulgaria experienced a deep economic crisis. The country was exhausted, a significant part of the population was starving. However, with the help of the Soviet Union, Bulgaria from a poor agricultural country has become a highly developed economy, a socially prosperous society. It was a real “Bulgarian miracle”.

The total Bulgarian Gross National Product (GNP) for 40 of the post-war years has grown more than 14 times, per capita - almost 30 times. In the period from 1946 to 1986, about 80% of industrial capacities, more than a third of agricultural capacities, up to 90% of energy, 70% of the transport network, 80% of port infrastructure, more than 80% of the total area of ​​housing, health facilities, education, science were created in Bulgaria and culture. All this was done at the expense of exclusively material, technical and financial assistance from the USSR, at the expense of Soviet personnel. And for free! In terms of modern prices, the USSR invested hundreds of billions of dollars in Bulgaria! It is also necessary to take into account compensation for the supply of Bulgarian goods to the Union: with the low cost of Bulgarian products, Moscow paid Sofia at rates close to world ones. For Bulgaria, prices for supplied Soviet goods were underestimated.

It is worth noting that the authority of the Soviet government in Bulgaria was very high. Since 1949, Sofia has repeatedly proposed to join the USSR on the rights of the 16 Republic. Unfortunately, Moscow, where decomposition processes began gradually after Stalin's death (which ultimately led to the rejection of socialism and the 1991 catastrophe of the year), did not dare to do so. The Soviet leadership was afraid of new complications with the West, a possible conflict with Turkey and a sharp reaction among other Balkan countries, in particular, Yugoslavia.

A developed socialist society was built in Bulgaria. Incomes of the population have grown significantly. About 40% of the GNP structure at the beginning of the 1980's was occupied by engineering, instrument making and machine tool building, ferrous metallurgy, the chemical industry and petrochemistry, electronics and electrical engineering. Agriculture became highly mechanized, which enabled Bulgaria already in the 60-ies to become one of Europe's largest exporters of vegetables and fruits (fresh and canned). The country has reached a high level of education, science and culture: there were 8,9 universities, 1986 state museums, 27 thousand public libraries, 185 theaters, etc., in 10,4 million people (in 55). An excellent resort and resort tourism (also mainly due to subsidies from the USSR).

Secretary General of the Bulgarian Communist Party Todor Zhivkov (1954 — 1989 gg.) Skillfully pursued domestic and foreign policy. He carried out frequent rotation of party and state leaders, there was no persecution of Orthodoxy, the private sector in agriculture was not limited, there was a rapid increase in living standards. Cultural, scientific and art workers were supported. This allowed us to maintain internal stability until the mid-80's. There was practically no internal opposition. In the external arena, Sofia supported Moscow in the confrontation with Beijing.

In the second half of the 80's, when preparations began for the collapse of the USSR and the socialist camp, the Romanian leader Ceausescu suggested Zhivkov create a Romanian-Bulgarian alliance with the involvement of the GDR and Albania, where the Stalinists still held power. The new union was to oppose the Gorbachev leadership, which consistently merged the socialist camp and the USSR. But Bulgaria did not dare to take such a sharp step. After Zhivkov’s resignation in 1989, prepared by the treacherous policies of the Gorbachev clique and the weakening of the USSR’s economic relations with Bulgaria, Bulgarian socialism fell.

Bulgaria has no future in the framework of the “European Reich”


Further, the events in Bulgaria took place according to a well-established pattern: liberalization, currency devaluation, privatization (plunder and destruction of the national economy). A significant decrease in the standard of living of the bulk of the population, the emergence of a small group of "successful". Agrarian reform (transfer of land to former owners and their heirs) has led to the fragmentation of land into small plots and a sharp decline in agricultural production. Prices soared, people's living standards fell sharply, Bulgarian goods (industrial and agricultural) were not needed on the world market, production dipped sharply. Up to 70% of Bulgaria’s production capacities created with the help of the Union are idle or closed, stolen. Western Europe did not even need Bulgarian vegetables and fruits.

Bulgaria, in fact, has become a semi-colony of the West, under the control of "experts" to destroy competitors from the IMF and the World Bank. It became part of NATO and the EU. At the same time, the standard of living of the people has decreased by half compared to the middle of the 80-s, the country's production potential is almost destroyed. Now Bulgaria is a simple consumer within the EU. And Sofia is creeping before Brussels, begging for funding. There is little work, only in the tourism sector, but it is also seasonal. It is not surprising that the people are rapidly dying out, and young people are fleeing to the developed countries of the EU, occupying the position of people of the second or third grade, slaves in the "European Reich." So, over the past three decades, the population of Bulgaria has declined by almost a quarter, to 7 million people. At the same time, this demographic trend is only intensifying. In addition, there is a decrease in the number of Bulgarians, and there are more Turks and Gypsies.

The leading positions in power, economy and the press belong to a small pro-Western group (only a few percent of the population), but it is it that determines the political course of the country and the growth of Russophobic, anti-Soviet sentiments in society. Most Bulgarians still consider Russian brothers, but they do not determine the policies of Sofia. Hence the official Sofia’s desire to forget all the great good that Russia has done for Bulgaria and repaint white to black. Historians and publicists fulfill the state order: in every way they underestimate, cross out and denigrate the role of Russia in the history of Bulgaria.

Obviously, the present pro-Western Bulgaria has no future. The semi-colonial periphery of developed Western countries, a sales market and cheap labor, a springboard for NATO in the Balkans and against Russia, minor injections against Russians in foreign policy and the rapid extinction, aging and flight of the native Slavic population. As a result - the complete extinction and death of the national identity of the Slavic people.

    Alexander, thanks for the detailed article ... Why so why ... It’s just that the people under the patronage of whom would not be forever offended. And they will do what the current owner will say. This also applies to the former union republics. Bulgaria in its actions has never been independent.

      Why is Bulgaria betraying Russia?
      The answer is simple - because at one time the USSR = Russia betrayed Bulgaria, and all the socialist countries of Eastern Europe, and not only them, if we recall Cuba, Vietnam, etc., refusing to cooperate with them in favor of the "partner" West, surrendering not only the interests of these countries, but also their own.
      So, before blaming others, you need to look at yourself, your policy towards these states. We are reaping the results of the treacherous Gorbachev-Yeltsin policy.

        Well, this is just your opinion, and those like you, I do not think it is correct and true. For all these "former" countries and republics, leading an essentially parasitic way of life (IMHO), all this happiness ended with the collapse of the USSR.

And there is in Russia - "tape", and in Bulgaria - "genet", the names are different, the essence and content (up to the coloring of the packages) are the same.

          I agree on everything 100, and I include in this list not only the socialist bloc of the times of the Union, but also the former republics of the USSR.
          In vain they built so many enterprises (the exception, perhaps, is Belarus, and the powerful industrialization of the Ukrainian SSR is a crime against Russia in general). Now it became painfully clear. The RSFSR was slowly bending, and the republics lived perfectly. And it was necessary to develop in them mainly agriculture. And industrial enterprises throughout Russia with an emphasis on Siberia and the Far East. But everything is in the past that cannot be changed.

          And for you, too, for reference:
          1) In the 1885 year, after the reunification of the principality (Bulgaria) with Eastern Rumelia, Russia withdraws all Russian ranks from the Bulgarian army.
          2) After the end of the Serbo-Bulgarian war, Russia inspires a coup against its own protege Alexander I Batenberg, which leads to his resignation. All those proposed by the princes of Bulgaria refuse (for example, Waldemar of Denmark) and only Ferdinand Saks-Coburg-Gotha agrees, but Russia breaks the diploma. Relations with the Principality of Bulgaria.
          3) Russia is against declaring independence of Bulgaria in the 1908 year. Dipl. The relationship was restored only after the death of Emperor Alexander III.
          4) During the Balkan wars, Russia was against the Bulgarian offensive towards Constantopol, does not oppose the Serbs violating the Serbo-Bulgarian agreements on the disputed and undisputed zones in Macedonia, which should have been decided under the arbitration of the Russian emperor, and also officially declares that there will be nothing to have against the Romanian speech against Bulgaria in the 1913 year.
          5) In WWI, in the 1914 year, when Bulgaria declared neutrality, the Russian General Staff planned to take the port of Burgas and use its base to capture the Bosphorus.
          6) When entering the Bulgarian PMV against Serbia, the Russian imperial fleet bombards Varna, shooting at the heaviest caliber in residential areas.
          7) Bulgaria joined the pact at the time when the Molotov-Ribbentrop agreement was in force, that is, the USSR and Germany were not formally opposed.
          8) Parts of Yugoslavia and Greece (which were still recognized Bulgarian by the Sanstefan Treaty and the London Peace Conference) were given over by the Germans to administer Bulgaria, but were not part of the Bulgarian state. (This issue should have been decided at the end of the war).

          Well, Pisaro, you said well about the betrayal of the Bulgarians 3 times, but unfortunately in the article, quite a few sensitive issues were generally fairly accurate. Not a word was said about the role (excl. Negative) of the Russian Empire in the unification of the Principality of Bulgaria with the Precise Rumelia. And UTB was the SECOND CHAIR (the first was at the Berlin congress where Russia betrayed Bulgaria as well as herself) to Russia in relation to Bulgaria and was reflected very negatively on all subsequent relations. This was expressed in the fact that Russia took a sharply negative position on the unification of Bulgaria. (As a result of this, although this is not the main reason, Serbia’s attacks on Bulgaria occurred.) Dip stopped. relationship one-sided, brought ALL ADVISERS incl. the military (who essentially commanded the Bulgarian army) forced Prince Batemberg (connected by family ties with the Russian Imperial House) to leave the throne, and Ferdinand came as a result of this. The third time it was during the inter-allied war of 1913 when Romania hit the back of Bulgaria UNDER THE NATISK of the Russian Empire. Even Nicholas 2 promised to become the patron of the first Romanian regiment that crossed the Bulgarian border; in addition, he promised the return of Southern Dobruja to Romania. Etc. etc .. Another small inaccuracy in the article is that Romania returned Southern Dobrudja to Bulgaria not only as a result of Hitler’s onslaught but as a result of the joint onslaught of Germany and the USSR !!! (between, however, I don’t think at all that it means that Stalin should be compared with Hitler. This is complete nonsense).

        Was it necessary to continue hand-feeding them until the end of the universe? After all, it's time to start doing something ourselves, and not to rely on Russia forever. When we got sick, everyone shook off the bushes, and now they look out, hoping for the old relationship, but still hoping for the "help" of the Naglo-Saxons. I doubt, however, that they will get something from them, these are not Russians who helped almost free of charge and generously.

          Was it necessary to continue to feed them from the hand until the end of the universe? - Vinnie (Vladimir Gorbunov)

          You are wrong in principle. The co-operation of the CMEA countries was mutually beneficial. And most importantly, the USSR provided Eastern Europe with the status of friendly states.
          These countries are not "dribbled in the bushes," as you write. It is our country, as a result of the betrayal of the leadership, betrayed them, refusing to cooperate with them.
          What did we get when we stopped "almost free of charge and generously helping" them?
          The expansion of NATO to our current borders, which included our former allies in the Warsaw Pact, which by the way is not over yet - Ukraine and Georgia are next. Moreover, states hostile to us almost at the Nazi level - Poland, Ukraine, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia.
          Now imagine 1941 the combined European troops led by Germany begin military operations from these borders - from the territory of Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine, Georgia, when they waved 400-500 km in a matter of days. The Germans would seize the entire European territory of the USSR right up to the Urals. Japan and Turkey would open hostilities against us. As a result, the USSR would have suffered a crushing defeat.

          Now the situation is just such, and if we take into account the still short flight time of combat missiles and aviation, the increased speed of fully mechanized troops, then the position of Russia is to say the least "awful".
          Now count our "penny economy" as a result of the abandonment of our former allies, in comparison with the geostrategic military, political and economic losses of today's Russia.

    The statement of the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry is not just disgusting, it is blasphemous for the Bulgarian people themselves, who, without Russia's help, would remain in slavery of the Ottoman Empire and would not have their own country. The definition of "brother" came from the Bulgarians themselves, we did not ask them to be brothers, but according to our mentality (protection of the weak, justice, faith) we came to the aid of the Slavic people.
    Why Bulgaria is betraying Russia
    Because they are used to being under someone else throughout their history, leaning against the strong for the sole benefit of their own. The recent muttering of the Bulgarian president that the elder will always forgive the younger (about South Stream) has resulted in yet another attack on Russia.

Nothing in the statement says anything about the war of 1877-1878 with the Ottoman Empire. There is no bad talk about this war in Bulgaria. Do not overdo it.
      The ministry is opposed to the name under which the exhibition is held. The title is “liberation.” Excuse me, but in 1944 you did not release us. Then you have nothing to free us. We are free.

    No one remembers the good in the past: history has been and has passed.
    But the problem is that we have a discord in our heads.
    If Zakharova compared Stalin with the Nazi regime, it is difficult to say that the Bulgarian elite has no right to do this.
    If monuments to Lenin are being knocked down in Ukraine, this is horror, and when our periodically prominent politicians offer to take Lenin out of the mausoleum, this is the "right to discussion", the draped mausoleum on May 9, an attempt by one of the country's leading parties to remove the hammer and sickle from the banner of victory, etc. .d.

        The Dimitrov Mausoleum in Bulgaria was abused, why wouldn’t they periodically run into Russia, links of one chain.

I do not propose to demolish everything connected with it. but simply remove the mummy from the city because it is the savagery of ancient times. perhaps this body is sacred to you and you pray to him, or something else I do not mind. but why can’t this be done in the cemetery? it will be at least civilized. sooner or later they will come to this. just for the reason that times are changing. where is repentance and ashes on the head?

      If Zakharova compared Stalin with the Nazi regime, it is difficult to say that the Bulgarian elite has no right to do this.

      Dear Edward, the assessment of history is ambiguous in Russia itself. Stalinism, totalitarianism, pseudo-socialism of that time, is perceived negatively in the East. Europe. For the peoples of Eastern Europe, this was an alien system, moreover, this system does not exist in modern Russia. You can not sell your "truth" to others! And you can not put in a row of enemies, those who have an opinion different from yours.

        Good evening Boyan,
        and where did you find my opinion that I defined someone as enemies.
        I just wrote that first you need to understand yourself.
        Regarding "totalitarianism" is an extremely controversial issue, in Bulgaria, in one place where I visit every summer, there is a monument to Bulgarian patriots who died in the fight against the Nazis in 1944, all very very young.
        It is difficult to agree that they fought for "totalitarianism". In Soviet times, my sister had a friend from Bulgaria, they corresponded for many years, it is difficult to say that the BNR lived under the heel of Soviet "pseudo-socialism", having the opportunity to go, for example, to Greece, etc.
        This is a word. Not for discussion.
        The elite, and Eastern Europe, and Russia from the 90 of the twentieth century, reoriented from East to West, there are more liverworts today, and people all live differently.
        I repeat - my message is, to understand yourself, this is about Russia.
        Yours faithfully,
        Edward

        Calm down, they put you in the ranks of enemies not for your opinion, but for a very real military threat, as a NATO member. Basta, "brothers", for the Russians you are now a target, a set of dangerous targets along with infrastructure and population, no more ... Without any emotions.

    And what is there to be surprised? The Bulgarian authorities have chosen a pro-Western course and the same "values". In fact, there are only two "values": tolerance for LGBT people and Russophobia. Here, at the command of the owner, they bark in our direction, knowing full well that this lie will touch us for a living. Another thing is that they know that there will be no response. And if that - you can always start a fake tear and pity your older brother. He's kind and always forgiving.

      For some time, Yandex.Zen has shown interest in me ... Basically there are "everyday" stories ... The types of fraud in various "spheres" are regularly described, which both specialists and "ordinary" citizens face ... the relationship between relatives and, simply, between "interacting" people. There are many stories when relatives from the "hinterland", having learned that someone from their "circle" moved to the "capitals" and, even, was able to buy an apartment there, begin to overcome the "lucky" relative, believing that he owes them all ! For example, if a "person involved" moved to a separate apartment from a previously purchased "room in a communal apartment", then he must provide a room for free and, practically, "forever" to his relatives and they are not "bothered" that the "person involved" needs to pay a mortgage ... They can, "saying goodbye to the" capital ", arrange a" sabantui "before leaving, as a result of which a" bombed-out "room remains ... And here's what I noticed: people began to treat each other and their relatives more harshly, more pragmatic. .. That is, the "persons involved" in such situations have become less inclined to forgiveness, more determined to break off relations! Comparing the "images" of situations between people and between states (countries), you involuntarily notice the similarity of these "images"! Maybe Russia is not worth it to hold on to the old "feelings", but to adhere to new relationships in modern realities?

And the coolest thing is that Russia is not doing anything ideologically in the Slavic countries and inside the country, and then we wipe away our tears ... aaaaa they don't like us ... They are bad, they are do not remember ... Do we remember? We ourselves remember once again, from October 1917 to December 1941 everything is bad, from December 1941 to May 1945 everything is fine, and from May 1945 to August 1991 everything is bad again ... And the monuments, we taught how to demolish, back in the USSR era ... From the beginning we repent, but here ... it was the bloody regime of the Poles in Katyn I shot, then oops ... we didn't love ... nooooo not bloody regime, the Germans ... We put up monuments to the invaders ... With such an ideology, "love" and "friendship" will not wait ...

      Dear Alexei, if we remove ideologies from our relations, I think everything will go much more positively! Everyone has their own truth! This does not mean that different truths are wrong! It is time to understand that the assessment of historical events can be completely opposite. Unfortunately, the media circulate hardenings, often completely incorrect from the actual point of view. Unfortunately, this article belongs to that category. It contains a lot of controversial hardening. The tendency is clear. Sorry...

    We Russians feel both surprise and resentment and frustration over such statements.
    But this is only because we tend to be conscientious and grateful.
    Although not for everyone.
    And we, in life, are still those goats.
    Like the goat of Timur in the cage of the Amur tiger.

    But life is so arranged that to constantly thank is not characteristic of the entire human race.
    Such is life.
    Good is forgotten quickly. Remember bad forever.
    By the fact that the bad is pain, humiliation, neglect.
    Only such negative phenomena in life are remembered.
    And the euphoria of joy cannot last long or forever.
    Physiologically, the body can not stand it.

    And as world practice has shown (Poland, Romania, Hungary, and then Ukraine), it’s enough to find a small layer of dissatisfied people in society (and they will always be), correctly orient them, provide them with funds and they are ready to destroy everything that was holy for yesterday their people.
    Even in the USSR, such an approach led to the destruction of the state.

    In their mass, any people are inert and apolitical.
    Life is too far from being constantly methodically monitoring events in the world around us.
    And the actions of our "partners" are going on in silence, calmness, in secret.
    And you do not immediately begin to understand that this or that politician is far from "the lamb of God", but most likely - the devil's offspring.

    And in our history there were examples of how the people followed those who promised universal equality and brotherhood, but only after we redeem this brotherhood in our own blood.
    I'm not hinting at anything. You don’t have to worry.
    There are thousands of examples in the history of Russia.

    So with Bulgaria.
    Those who determine the political course today are proteges of the West.
    It is convenient for the West to continue to humiliate Russia by the fact that even the most, seemingly obligated and grateful, begin to spit in our direction.

    And then such a thought comes to mind.
    Three hundred years of the Ottoman yoke.
    Lack of statehood, lack of responsibility for their land, brought up a people who can not live without a collar and chain.
    Those. people strive to find support in the strong.
    But the USSR went into oblivion.
    Again, a lot of examples.
    Georgia, Moldova, the Baltic states.
    Having taken off one "decoration" (in their opinion) from their neck, they happily wagging their tails, with a puppy squeal, ran to the one who had dressed them another.
    And Bulgaria is the same puppy that cannot turn into an adult dog, responsibly and independently solving its internal and external problems.
    Need a host.
    And they found him.

    But the owner said bark.
    And the dog does what she’s got the meat for.
    And do not beat with a stick.

      F.M. Dostoevsky about "brothers Slavs"
      "... according to my inner conviction, the most complete and insurmountable - Russia will never have and never had such haters, envious people, slanderers and even obvious enemies, like all these Slavic tribes, as soon as Russia liberates them, and Europe agrees to recognize them released!
      And do not mind me, do not dispute, do not shout at me that I am exaggerating and that I am a hater of the Slavs! On the contrary, I love the Slavs very much, but I won’t defend myself either, because I know that everything will come true exactly like I say, and not because of the low, ungrateful, as if, character of the Slavs - they have a character in this sense, like everyone else, namely because such things in the world cannot happen otherwise.
      After their release, they will begin their new life, I repeat, precisely by asking themselves to be given the pledge and protection of their freedom from Europe, England and Germany, and even Russia will be in a concert of European powers, but they will protection from Russia and will do it.
      They will certainly begin with the fact that inside themselves, if not outright out loud, they will declare to themselves and convince themselves that they do not owe Russia the slightest gratitude, on the contrary, that they barely escaped the lust for power of Russia at the conclusion of peace by the intervention of a European concert, and not if Europe intervened, so Russia would swallow them immediately, "meaning the expansion of borders and the foundation of the great All-Slavic empire on the enslavement of the Slavs to the greedy, cunning and barbaric Great Russian tribe"

      Bulgarians in their majority Russophiles. In Bulgaria, an untouched huge number of historical objects associated with Russia have been preserved.
      The statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not contain anything seditious. Did you read it in the original? Hardly ... There is no ego in Russian, for some reason ... The topic of Stalinism and its forced introduction in our country has divided society since those times. Acute debate continues to this day. It remains unclear the persistence with which some political forces in the Russian Federation and the media they support creep on this topic to worsen relations between our countries.
      No bad nations! There is a mixed assessment of certain periods of history!

        Come on, Boyan hold on.
        Now I will explain to you the meaning of the Russian proverb - where crayfish hibernate.
        Here is the text in Bulgarian.
        "On the occasion of organizing a ranoto from the Embassy in Ruskat, the federation was shot down on September 9," Presentation of 75 years from liberation to Iztochna Europe from Nazism, "the Ministry of the Interior of the Russian Federation stated the following:
        “Without and without reason, bringing to the Soviet Union for the defeat of Nazism in Europe, don’t shake it and scream, you’re tickling the Svetskat army for the people in Central and polished Europe for half a century of repression, drowned out for civilian life, deforming economic development and lack of dynamism on process in develop european rust.
        The Ministry of Internal Affairs doesn’t have any relation to the issue of the Russian embassy and not to borrow a position in support of the demilitarized historical thesis ("liberation"), which is privileged itself politically among in Bulgaria, that is, the name of the Russian embassy in the foreign political debate.
        9th Septemvri and disobey the hell of a rag so that they will remain in the possession of historian and historical scholarship, for which they will receive full and accurate assessment for the influence of the development of Bulgaria on the 20th century.
        The point on international law is clear from the fact that the Deceptoseptemvriyskiy turn right the follower from the declaration of war on Bulgaria from the country to the USSR on Sept. 5, 1944 and the last one on the island of Bulgaria on the territory of the USSR on neutral territory.
        The Soviet Union declared war on Bulgaria, a new democratic government came to power on the current side, announced that it had ceased to break out of Nazi Germany and had affirmed its position on neutrality in the Kingdom of Bulgaria directly in Russia. The temporary occupation of Bulgaria from the USSR and Syuznitsyte, some formally from the administration to the representatives of the coalition, but de facto this exercise is exclusive through a military presence.
        Long-term follow-up on Bulgaria, let’s take off as you leave the countries from Iztochna Europe, you’ve got into the influence zone for 45 years, the management is totalitarian, relying on the communist ideology based on the Bolshevik-Leninist regime. “
        And here is the translation. High enough quality.
        On the occasion of the event organized by the Embassy of the Russian Federation on September 9, "Exhibition of 75 Years of the Liberation of Eastern Europe from Nazism", the MNR declares the following:
        “Without denying the contribution of the USSR to the defeat of Nazism in Europe, we must not turn a blind eye to what the bayonets of the Soviet army brought to the peoples of Central and Eastern Europe half a century of repression, damping of civil conscience, deformed economic development and detachment from the dynamics of processes in developed European countries.
        The MVNR has nothing to do with this manifestation, and we advise the Russian embassy not to take positions in support of the dubious historical thesis ("liberation"), which is privileged only by some political circles in Bulgaria, since it is interference in the internal political debate in our country.
        September 9 and its consequences should remain the property of historians and historical science in order to receive a complete and accurate assessment of the impact on the development of Bulgaria in the 20th century.
        From the point of view of international law, the facts are clear: the nine-Septemvrian coup is a direct consequence of the declaration of war on Bulgaria by the USSR on September 5, 1944. and the subsequent invasion of Soviet troops on the territory of Bulgaria, neutral with respect to the USSR.
        The USSR declared war on Bulgaria when a new democratic government just came to power, announcing the termination of relations with Nazi Germany and reaffirming the position of neutrality of the Kingdom of Bulgaria towards Russia. This is followed by the temporary occupation of Bulgaria by the USSR and its allies, which is formally controlled by representatives of the coalition, but de facto is carried out exclusively through the Soviet military presence.
        The long-term consequences for Bulgaria are the same as for the rest of the countries of Eastern Europe that find themselves in the Soviet zone of influence - 45 years of managing ambassadors, a regime based on the Bolshevik-Leninist version of communist ideology. "

        You tell us Boyan about the repression.
        Who, how much and when they convicted.
        And for what ?!
        A muffled conscience is what?
        A person either has it or not.
        If a person does not live in harmony with his conscience, then he is an extremely liar.
        The deformation of economic development provides for the forced closure of certain enterprises (industries) for the sake of any preferences. This was not the case in Bulgaria. Development went on. Bulgaria received about $ 500 billion in loans, preferences, market openings, etc. This is the opinion of the Americans. Not Russian.
        Developed European countries - who is this?
        Germany? France? Spain? Italy?
        Or maybe Switzerland.
        It is necessary to compare with those who were in the same conditions from the first moment.
        And so you can compare salty with hot.

        And now the following.
        We, the USSR, fought against fascism.
        Bulgaria, at the time of the beginning of World War II, was an ally of Nazi Germany.
        It is absolutely not important that Bulgaria did not send a certain soldier to the Eastern Front.
        It happens that moral support means more material. But it was material.
        The German fleet used the ports of Bulgaria. And that's it.
        In theory, it was necessary to punish the ally of Germany. But you, cunning Bulgarians, at the last moment broke the treaty and declared war on Germany, thereby trying to remove from your head both the shame and responsibility.
        Who can believe in such a naive and cowardly policy?
        I will not believe And Stalin, and even more so.
        But he felt sorry for you, brainless.
        And he gave as much as he did not give to the Russian people.
        But could he take off three skins?
        Could. And they would give.

        And the fact that the winners on the right of the winner gave preference to those who, from their point of view, can implement policies in accordance with our political views, there is nothing reprehensible in this.
        In fact, the winner is their governor. They put garrisons. Abolish any civil rights. Etc.
        But already on September 15, 1946. a year after the end of the war, and the defeat of the Kwantung Army (the war is not easy!), the People’s Republic of Bulgaria was formed.
        September 8, 1946, in the presence of Soviet troops, a referendum was held in Bulgaria. According to official results, out of 4 509 354 eligible to vote in the referendum, 4 132 007 voters (91,63%) participated, of which 92,72% voted [3] for the overthrow of the monarchy and the proclamation of a republic. The results of the referendum are questioned by the monarchists, who insist that the Red Army located in the country influenced these results. On September 15, 1946, the People's Republic of Bulgaria was proclaimed, the first prime minister of which was George Dimitrov, an old communist, friend of Tito and a supporter of the creation of a single South Slavic state within Yugoslavia and Bulgaria.

        Dimitrov - who is this?
        This is not a Russian surname. This is Bulgarian.
        And the citizens of Bulgaria voted for him.
        So come on, rest. Gain strength.
        Perhaps you need them.

        For reference.
        My grandfather, a citizen of Bulgaria. He emigrated in 1920 to Soviet Russia.
        So I, to some extent, Bulgarian.
        And I can, and I will defend the truth.
        Do not blame.

          Hi Wang! hi
          Come on, Boyan hold on. Now I will explain to you the meaning of the Russian proverb - where the crayfish hibernate.

          This is you hold on! I know more Russian sayings than many Russians know. I’ll tell you one Bulgarian! I am showing the spit, parti mu tarsi vratata. / I will show you where the spit is, and you look for where her door is! /
          Here is the text in Bulgarian ...

          Just about to publish it, but you got ahead of me! I confirm his authenticity! good
          You tell us Boyan about the repression. Who, how much and when they were convicted. And for what ?!

          On this you need to write a whole article! The truth is what? Condemned by thousands. Many of them are deserved, while others are not. And then ... they began to destroy their own, those who did not fit into the system! Gulag camps were created. There was someone to learn from! The very thing that the Bulgarians perceived badly - forced collectivization! The people are rural, the land is everything for them! We had traditions in cooperatives until 45-46 years! But they were voluntary, and here ... with sticks on their legs and back! As a result, hundreds of thousands stopped rejoicing at the "liberation"!
          A muffled conscience is what? A person either has it or not.

          Who has no conscience, write it off. Hopeless. And who has it? Is he always right? And if untruths were hammered into his head? And he is ashamed, holy to believe in them? Is he a liar or deceived? What do you know about the Bulgarian events to which my grandfathers were participants and witnesses? How can I accept your "truth" if I know for sure that the truth is different?
          The deformation of economic development provides for forced closure ... Development has been going on. About 500 billion. Bulgaria received in the form of loans, preferences, opening a market, etc. This is the opinion of the Americans. ...

          Van, do you have any idea what the unimaginable amount is? 100% nonsense, from an incomprehensible, doubtful source. Saving the facts: During the time of socialism, Bulgaria 3 times went bankrupt. Not an effective economy created by the Soviet model. Again, a topic for staty!
          And now the following. We, the USSR fought against fascism. Bulgaria, at the time of the beginning of World War II, was an ally of Nazi Germany.

          Nobody argues! And we fought. Moreover, it is very effective. Theme for articles with facts and figures! By the way, when Bulgaria was forced to enter the Axis, the only country that fought against Germany was ... Great Britain! In the meantime, Bulgaria could not fight for the WB or the USSR! It is unique that she could - NOT fight against the USSR! The maximum possible, and did!
          In theory, it was necessary to punish the ally of Germany.

          Strange ... why weren't Romania punished? Slovakia, Croatia, Finland? Having forced Vost.Europe to be forcibly accepted by your Stalinist social system, they accepted it as a present ??? Okay! And how to react when in 90, you yourself renounced your system?
          And the fact that the winners on the right of the winner gave preference to those who, from their point of view, can implement policies in accordance with our political views, there is nothing reprehensible in this.

          And there is. good That is why you cannot call it "liberation"! Different things, huh? Accordingly, countries that find themselves in such a situation have the right to assess it negatively. The specific topic is still shared by the Bulgarian society. The controversy does not subside. Every attempt from the outside to influence internal disputes will be perceived negatively.
          8 September 1946 years in the presence of Soviet troops, a referendum was held in Bulgaria. According to official results from 4 509 354 eligible to vote in the referendum, 4 132 007 voters (91,63%), of which 92,72% voted [3] for the overthrow of the monarchy and the proclamation of a republic.

          All "voting" during social events are close to 100% ... I think it's not worth explaining how they turned out ... laughing
          Dimitrov - who is this? This is not a Russian surname. This is Bulgarian.

          Wang, are you familiar with the ideology of communism? There is no nationality, they are internationalists! The "Bulgarian" Dimitrov stopped being a Bulgarian a little, as the communist became convinced! So it is with others in the USSR, inter alia.
          My grandfather, a citizen of Bulgaria. He emigrated to Soviet Russia in 1920. So I, to some extent, am Bulgarian too. And I can and will defend the truth.

          I have half Russian relatives. So I, to some extent, Russian. You are not upholding the TRUTH, but your truth. Truths are different! But the Truth is one, but to get to it you need to know all the truths and be holy! Not given to man! Why am I talking about this? Because, each will remain with its own opinion. And in this regard, I consider it harmful to lead disputes whose final result will be negative. Let everyone remain of their own opinion, but let no one try to vparit his truth to another! Question from the assessment of history, internal to each country! I’ll also say that I consider the statement of the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry, although true in fact, but harmful in general. As far as we see, it served for a decent anti-Bulgarian fuss in Russian media. There are forces interested in this.

      1 At one time, "Marked" betrayed Zhivkov. Their own communists overthrew him and everything went blue-blue flame (the color of the flags of the SDS-Union of the Democratic Forces of Bulgaria, leader Professor Zhelev)
      Read the revelations http://www.gorby.ru/gorbachev/zhizn_i_reformy2/page_17/

      2 .. "Zhivkov's conspiracy" is mentioned not only in his "Memoirs", but in the memoirs of many intelligence officers. In 1986, Todor began negotiations with the leaders of the "fraternal communist parties" about Gorbachev's betrayal of the ideals of socialism. The leaders obediently assented and then ran to talk about this to the same Gorbachev, fearing to lose the support of the then almost omnipotent Soviet Union. November 10, 1989 Zhivkov resigned from the post of General Secretary ""

        I think we should be friendlier to each other. The positions of our governments do not necessarily express the sentiments of our peoples towards each other. And do not demand from each other "love to the grave."
        But we lack communication, simple communication. And it's not about disputes for "establishing the truth." I think there are dry facts and there is their interpretation. And the last one is different. We must discuss this, of course, begin to understand and accept each other's positions. But it is important, and in my opinion more important, not to lose our cultural connection, in a sense, kinship.

    Quite right: the USSR did not liberate Bulgaria, Bulgaria is an ally of the Third Reich, surrendered when it saw victorious Soviet troops at its borders. Union with Germany is the historical choice of this country, it chose a German tsar for itself, it fought on the side of Germany in two world wars, and now it is a loyal vassal of Germany, which is at the head of the European Union. True, Germany is now itself a vassal of the United States. And, in the case of Bulgaria, the rule "vassal of my vassal - not my vassal" does not apply. It is high time for Russia to stop using such strange and ridiculous categories as "friend" in politics. There is no friendship in relations between states, there are temporary interests. Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, who fought against the USSR, had to pay reparations. Spain, which sent the "Blue Division" to fight against the USSR, too. Compensation had to be paid by all countries whose citizens fought voluntarily against the USSR - France, Belgium, Norway, the Netherlands.

        Don't pretend to be naive. Bulgaria was an ally of Nazi Germany and declared war on the allies of the USSR. And she hoped, then, for "good diplomatic relations" with the USSR (read - Russia) fighting against Hitler? Or neutrality? When the roast cock pecked, she capitulated. We did not free her - she does not deserve such a high word. We liberated Poland and Yugoslavia, whose partisans fought against the Nazis. And the allies of the Third Reich - Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, who worked for Hitler in the Czech Republic - we have rightfully occupied. It is a pity that they forgiven, but it was necessary to ravage with reparations and let go naked into the "free Western world"

    A Russian soldier saved the Bulgarians from the Turks ... After all, they were slaughtered there, like rams, impoverished to no one. Russia even went to the conditions of Turkey .. We do not pretend to Konstotinopl, etc. But they do not touch Bulgaria and Europe all ..

      "Without denying the contribution of the USSR to the defeat of Nazism in Europe, one should not close our eyes to the fact that the bayonets of the Soviet army brought the peoples of Central and Eastern Europe half a century of repression, suppression of civil conscience, deformed historical development ... "
      So begins the statement of the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry! What's wrong?
      The defeat of Nazism and the decisive role of the USSR no one denies! And the subsequent Stalinism, repressions by tens of thousands of dissenters, forced collectivization, and much of which is not true?
      Why are you outraged, on the assumption that the Russian Federation itself recognizes the ambiguity of Stalinism?
      Russian soldier saved the Bulgarians from the Turks ...

      This is a fact and in Bulgaria they treat Russians as their own precisely for that! And what about Stalinism? What is the connection?
      Turks sharpen yatagans on you again .. Can sell you?

    Russia liberated Bulgaria, but could not attach it politically, economically, and even culturally. Sofia is gradually leaning towards Vienna, Berlin and Paris. The Germans and the French finance the country's economic development, in particular, the construction of railways. Relations with St. Petersburg are deteriorating, up to the severance of diplomatic relations, which were restored only in 1896.
    Again, we are to blame (if you saved someone’s life, you answer to God to the end)
    In the summer of 1913, Bulgaria launched a war against Serbia
    40 years have passed since the Orthodox climbed out from under the Turkish yoke ... and let's cut each other's throats.
    In 1941, Bulgaria signed the Triple Pact (the union of Germany, Italy and Japan), but did not participate in hostilities. The Bulgarian territory was used by the Nazis to invade Yugoslavia ..... In December 1941, Sofia declared war on the United States and England, but until the end of the war she tried to maintain peace with the USSR.
    wait a minute, and these are allies in the anti-Hitler coalition.
    In the spring and summer of 1944, Moscow repeatedly demanded that Sofia break its alliance with Germany. After the crushing victories of the Red Army in 1944 - the defeat of the Germans in Moldova, the liberation of Romania and the 3rd Ukrainian front in the Romanian-Bulgarian border, Bulgaria had to make a choice. On August 26, 1944, Sofia declared neutrality in the war between Germany and the USSR, and demanded that the German army be withdrawn from Bulgarian territory. However, the Germans continued to use the territory of Bulgaria to move their troops, German ships arrived in Bulgarian ports and German forces were stationed on Bulgarian land. Therefore, on September 5, the USSR declared war on Bulgaria, after which the Bulgarian authorities broke off relations with Hitler
    and where would they go.
    the moral is that you have to protect your (we would have had more people in our country if we hadn’t fought for the freedom of Bulgaria) are the Americans pin to go, and the Bulgarians are brothers?

    All this was done at the expense of exclusively material, technical and financial assistance from the USSR, at the expense of Soviet personnel. And for free! In terms of modern prices, the USSR invested hundreds of billions of dollars in Bulgaria! It is also necessary to take into account compensation for the supply of Bulgarian goods to the Union: with the low cost of Bulgarian products, Moscow paid Sofia at rates close to world ones. For Bulgaria, prices for supplied Soviet goods were underestimated.
    This is one example only for small Bulgaria, "billions of US dollars". And how many hundreds of billions have been funneled into other "socialist countries"? Time passed and all these milliards flew away like "plywood over Paris". And let the internationalist patriots scold me, but I will say again, "Stalin shouldn't have liberated Europe." I remember the 50s and our village and the city, when we went to school, we didn’t eat enough, we wore tarpaulin boots and cotton shirts at school, a simple candy "pillow" was a joy for us, but we gave miles received in return?

    Why didn’t she?
    In 1941, Sofia saw perfectly well that the Soviet Union was not Tsarist Russia. And Joseph Stalin is not Nikolai Romanov at all. This, perhaps, in which case, crush and will not notice.
    Well, let the Bulgarians not really fight against us in World War II
    ... although Hitler always demanded this. But each Bulgarian military unit operating on Greek or Yugoslav territory liberated regiments and divisions for the Wehrmacht, which he could transfer to the Eastern Front.
    well and
    ... about the enormous military supplies that regularly went from Bulgaria to the Third Reich, as well as about the German soldiers who massively improved their health in its hospitable territory, there is no need to speak.
    it too to spit and forget? By the way in
    In 1916, on the Romanian front, Bulgarians and Russians met face to face and the battles were very fierce on both sides. Until now, some in St. Petersburg had seriously expected that when they were against the Russian army, the "brothers" would run to surrender in rows and columns. There it was! Children and grandchildren of those who were “rescued from Turkish captivity” for less than four decades, fought with the descendants of their liberators, according to the recollections of the participants in the battles, “desperately”
    yes and
    Who, you sick people, “occupied” if Sofia twice turned to Moscow with a request to accept her into the “Unbreakable Union” ?!

    The first attempt was made under Khrushchev, in 1963. The second - already under the "dear Leonid Ilyich." The then leader of Bulgaria Todor Zhivkov openly declared that his country could be sovereign and independent "only as part of the Soviet Union"! However, both general secretaries refused such an "enviable" proposal.

        Hello Lyuba, Lyuba .... youtube star ....

        And what, to whom did Europe do good from the countries of Eastern Europe?


        A simple question - name the country of Eastern Europe, which has a lower average salary than Russia ...
        Please name the country of Eastern Europe, which has a lower life expectancy than Russia ...

        Bulgaria sits on loans so firmly that it cannot crumble.


        And so I will give you some information. Bulgaria's debt is the second lowest in the EU, after Luxembourg. This is 24% of GDP. Russia is higher. It is a lot or a little - it is up to the Russians to decide.
        In the last 20 years (with the exclusion of 2009), Bulgaria’s GDP has been growing. In 2019, this is 3,3% and the forecast on 2020 is 3,5%.
        Unemployment - 5%. The average salary of 2019 year is 610 Euro. Salary growth in the last 5 years - 8-11% per year.

        You can check everything at www.nsi.bg

        It comes to the ridiculous: Bulgaria, which grew wonderful tomatoes and peppers, is buying it now in Europe.


        We have our own production and very large. We just sell it expensive, because it is better than Spanish and Dutch plastic, at a cheap price. At 2018, the country broke a record for growing high-quality wheat. The first place in (of course) rose oil, the first place in the world for growing saffron (sold already more than Iranian). And so on.

        The Bulgarian economy is very balanced - industry - 24,1% (in Germany - 28%). Agriculture - 4,1%.

        I know you don’t like Poles, but two months ago Poland was officially included in the "developed countries" column. As long as you and we stand in developing.

        So you with your GDP growth to Eastern Europe, as to China cancer ....

        The maximum GDP during socialism was reached in 1989 - $ 22 billion, but it was accompanied by a sharp increase (300%) of external debts. In 1990, Bulgaria even declared a default, since external debts ($ 10,5 billion) exceeded its gold and foreign exchange reserves (gold reserves - $ 1 billion) by 10 times! In general, during socialism Bulgaria "prospered" so much that in the 60s T. Zhivkov was forced to sell 30 tons of gold to Soviet banks in order to pay off creditors.
        For the subsequent period before entering the EU, max. GDP was in 2006 - 34.1 billion $ In 2007, Bulgaria entered the EU and in 2018, GDP reached a historical record of 61.7 billion with a sharp decrease in external debt. By the ratio - VD / GDP (22% of GDP), now Bulgaria is in the top three EU countries with one of the best results. Government debt for 2019, 13,9 billion. $, Gold and foreign exchange reserves - 27,1 billion. $
        As for agricultural products, in 2018, Bulgaria exported for 5 billion euros, and imported for 4 billion. The main products that are imported are not grown, due to the climate in our country. In addition, we have seasonal storage, so in winter we have to import from countries where it is whole-year. In general, we are on the plus with a billion dollars! Previously, in our social shops, the counters were chronically empty. Even native products were hard to buy. Sasya breaking from the goods! Imported and dear, as you want!

      at the time of Khrushchev, decent war reparations of $ 70 million still hung on Bulgaria, Moscow would have had to resolve the issues with payment. And later on, they perfectly understood what Sofia wanted - to sit on the neck of the USSR economically no longer indirectly, through the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance, but directly and forever.

By the way, what were the economic indicators during the CMEA at Bulgaria and what can it boast of now? I have not seen any bell peppers and tomatoes for 25 years, or Bulgaria has become such an economically-technologically developed power that it is no longer up to agricultural products.

          This is general population statistics. Not by ethnicity !!! With nationalities during the so-called. "socialism" interesting things happened! Ethnic Bulgarians have been on the decline since the 50s. But the nationalities multiplied! Gypsies and Turks provided the entire total increase. Everyone who lived with us in the meantime knows about it! Todor Zhivkov realizing that the situation was becoming dangerous, in the mid-80s initiated the so-called. "revival processes"! Silly and ineffectual. After the 90s, the demographic situation was aggravated by emigration. People locked up by the communists for half a century behind barbed wire, rummaged around the world to seek happiness for themselves. All these catastrophic things happened precisely through the fault of the communist administrators and their policies! This is another of their monstrous attacks! Europe has nothing to do with it!
          By the way, the demographic crisis now covers the whole white race. For many global reasons. In Russia, the situation is the same. Theme for decoration.

              Todor Zhivkov then opened the border with Turkey and, offended by the "revival" process, left. Zhivkov did not act out of noble impulses, of course! The opening of the border with Turkey temporarily lowered the account of the Turkish nationality. Bulgarians were not allowed then "over the hill". And the sharp demographic growth of the Roma population continued and the result is visible today.

    First we created an army for them. They locked themselves in a German kings, not Russian. Then they rushed with rapture to beat the Serbs, Greeks. Then two world wars fought on the side of the Germans. Now they are in NATO. Leopard change his spots. Neselrode was right

It is time to learn to authors (and authors) to avoid sweeping accusations and point to traitors precisely, and we must start by exposing "their" traitors.

    Bulgarians, like Russians, are too trusting. Therefore, those who promise more come to power in these countries. It was in the Gorbachev-Yeltsin period, it was before. In general, the peoples of the planet are little different from each other. Look at the dill. 21 century, and believe in fairy tales.
    The West has come a long way in establishing sober people-power relations. And the gymnastic is not so right, saying that the state does not owe us anything. Yes, every citizen should strive to get a good job, a salary. To insure housing, health, save money for old age. But the state has a duty to develop business, collect taxes and distribute them fairly.
    In the West, this is more or less done. But for us, as for the same Bulgarians, it’s different. Power flirts with the nouveau riche, helps them, but the people pay for it. We Russians have no one else to blame for this, but countries like Bulgaria are looking for the guilty and find them in the model of the USSR imposed on them. So it is in life. People often blame their close relatives for their mistakes.
    This process is very long, decades. Therefore, it is necessary to separate power from the people. The people in Bulgaria are friendly to us, in my opinion much more than Ukrainians. Ukrainians are a clinic. Time cures.

    Let's share history, politics and propaganda. And remember that all these aspects are contradictory and each side has its own truth and vision.
    The author of the article began to write nonsense from the very beginning about "almost a single Russian-Bulgarian people in the X century." History clearly shows (we read Leo the Deacon) that Svyatoslav appeared in Bulgaria after receiving money from the Byzantines and, having defeated the troops of the Bulgarians, decided to leave the country for himself. This is a historical fact at the moment. What a unity here.
    It was touched by a passage about how Russia could not provide assistance in 1875-76. Well, yes, reforms and all that are not ready. But after a year, when they started the war with Turkey, you need to understand prepared?
    If the Soviet Union invested in Bulgaria, then these are the problems of the Soviet Union. Is it possible not to consider a fool a father of a family running after young lovers if he himself is not so sweet in his family?
    We look at the list of "ungrateful" countries and regions that do not remember the blessings of Russia: the Baltic States, Poland, Hungary, Central Asia, Mongolia, Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine And also Belarus is possible. Either we are all surrounded by ungrateful brutes or something is wrong with our blessings. Maybe it's enough to step on the imperial rake already?

    It's funny to read these snot. "Nobody loves us!"
    What is Bulgaria? Or have they already forgotten, like our Government, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Education and Science, intelligence, etc., who in the service is supposed to think about it, "brilliantly asked" Ukraine?
    Ukraine has been moving towards state Russophobia for 20 years. In Ukraine, the EU, NATO, the "fig leaf" funds covering the activities of the special services, and so on, were working consistently and harmoniously. They were tearing off the "departments of Russophobia." We sent students to internships in European and American universities. Teachers were invited. It's expensive to see how everything is organized. And you look ... they are already jumping bunnies "who is not with us, that Moskal."

    And ours what? And they believed that if they agreed there by the oligarchs about gas transit and the import of labor into Russia, is that OK? Pipes! Where is working with people with youth. Moreover, not on the basis of games in the lightning and those who are fed up with all of us even references to the exploits and victims of the Second World War, but on what leads to a common future
    (Think, those who were born in 1945 are already 74 years old! We are always going to "squeeze tears" out of this topic? Squeezed everything dry).

    It is the same with Belarus today. We are completely unprepared for Lukashenka to leave. Tomorrow, when he is replaced by the same Western-oriented young politicians, will ours again whine "brothers betrayed"? And the fact that ours are rather rudely trying to seize Belarusian enterprises? Or refuse mutually beneficial cooperation in Belarusians on military tractors? But this also means that the son / daughter of a Belarusian engineer or worker who loses his job because Russia refuses to buy tractors will also say: "Russia has betrayed our family! So Russia has betrayed Belarus!" And whoever benefits, of course, they will sing along the ear - "Yes, yes, Russia has always oppressed you ..." and further along the knurled path of Georgia and Ukraine.

    Do not have to love us! It is stupid and off to demand love, after such a complex history of the twentieth century (everything is correctly described in the article itself in the comments above).
    And Russia often behaves like an abandoned, old lover - wringing her hands and tripling the scene.
    They can respect, strive to imitate. Envy, even fear (rude, but also useful).
    But what should we learn, what should we envy? Is our Hubble taking pictures of galaxies? Are these our rovers riding on Mars? Are the best engineers in the world striving for our Silicon Valley? Is it all these Google, Apple, etc.? To work for us in our incredibly developed "May decrees" Hi-Tech?

    Why is everyone looking to the West? That's the same .. And we, in addition to memories of the partisan movement and the army of Kovpak, what can we offer? And we must remember that in addition to the general victory over Nazism, there were repressions, Lithuanian priests in Siberian camps, the struggle against the UPA, the "green brothers". Therefore, the more we ourselves pedal to the past, the more it hurts us with the other side.

    Tired of this nagging. First we’ll do something to respect us for.
    Then they will respect themselves. And we’ll manage without love somehow.

      We do not need to be loved, but we do not owe anyone to love and owe nothing to anyone. What would the "brothers" want - let them pay and sleep peacefully. In debt to give - not to us ... Well, they chose NATO as a friend, then who is their doctor.
      PS By the way, in order to offer them something, it is SOMETHING that they should take from their own.

        Does your whole thought fit into "Wipe Down"? Capaciously, cleverly. Is there anything to argue in essence?
        Otherwise, the impression is that the reaction is just because there is nothing to object to.

          To object? You can argue ..
          Your order has been received. I have understood the task.
          We begin to assess the situation
          Do you know how to carry it out.?
          Enemy
          Own troops
          Conclusions from the assessment.
          And only then the Decision .. you did not understand the order and did not make an assessment of the situation, they immediately issued a decision ..
          Let's start with the assessment
          I'll start .. and you continue ..
          As a result of the betrayal of the party and state elite of the USSR and with the support of the imperialist west, the creeping counter-revolution successfully passed.
          The VD ceased to exist. CMEA. THE USSR . The countries of the former socialist camp fell into the primary stage of capitalism, and in some places also feudal relations. The damage inflicted on the country was ten times greater than the damage from the Patriotic War "The satanic West was preparing to take Kazan and other territories of the former Empire, without tanks, the introduction of enemy armies, bombing and chemical attacks.
          Russia was shrinking and curling before our eyes, like shagreen leather and was supposed to turn into a Moscow principality and the prince was already ready .... Yeltsin signed an agreement on the further collapse of Russia into pieces ... in the Urals they had already begun to print their money ... the regions were preparing u disconnect ... "
          But .Russia Phoenix has risen from the ashes and declared itself Declared to the whole world: "We are alive and ambitious!"
          Does it reach you?

    Yes, Russia liberated us but took Besarabia from Romania and presented them with the Bulgarian territory of Severn Dobrudja. The soldiers were liberated, soldiers died, but before that, in 1876, the Tsarigrad Conference had competed with Count Ignatieff and they had agreed in advance what and how - the liberation of all the territories inhabited by Bulgarians was not It was envisaged - then there were 7 million of us, the largest people in the Balkans, but ... and the closest to the capital, the Ottomans and relating to Russia as a mother - grandfather Ivan, the name of Russia. In 1878, he signed the San Stefan Armistice on March 3, n.a. in a place near Istanbul, the Emperor knew that there would be no single Bulgaria - he had already conducted his diplomatic talks behind the back of the public, three months later, the Berlin Peace had been signed in Berlin. Do any of you know which Bulgaria appeared after this ?!

    This was the first betrayal Then in 1881 the Russian generals made a coup d'état removed the legitimate government of Bulgaria and established a "regime of power" and this is a second betrayal Then Russia not only did not support Bulgaria when the act of the Union of South with Northern Bulgaria was committed, but also when Serbia treacherously attacked us with her back she did everything to prevent us from winning this war Thank God it did not happen, but no one forgot such a betrayal then the first Russophobes were born Then in 1886 they made a second coup and turned down Prince Alexander I and this is the fourth betrayal after which the Bulgarian political elite turned the helm and Russia ruined influence and trust, etc.

    Gorbachev's betrayal has no meaning to talk about then you destroyed all the SIV, then the Warsaw Pact and the USSR, yes you are traitors of great caliber. Your Yeltsin replied / in 96 / our minister-chairman - Zhana Videnov: "Save yourself, we don't need you" - The effect was overwhelming, hyperinflation burst into the country .. it was overthrown and our policy did not change .... the course set from the destruction of the Berlin Wall remained .. the Russophobic clique came to power and the country was covered with a network of NGOs conductors of American politics ....... and somehow se kazva in the Old Bulgarian identity and until now

    Who is the traitor and who has suffered in history, and we have something to say. Let's remember how Prince Svyatoslav went off the alliance with the Eastern Roman Empire and attacked Bulgaria in 968 tons, and although the alliance later from the Bulgarians, this dynasty and a country that was not able to recover, Yes, Russia liberated Bulgaria in 1878, but in 1828/9 we all remember how Russian troops devastated Northern Bulgaria, and then he left the Turks to finish this dirty business Why not remember how Russia represented by its emperor and The Asian department was overthrown by the Karavelov government, and then controlled with extraordinary powers, especially the generals Kaulbars, Khitrov and others, who acted as if Bulgaria was a Russian province of 1881-1883

    Chicken is not a bird, but Bulgaria is the ass border! They knew it well. Already 140 years in Russia it is customary to consider Bulgaria as a patrimony ... There is nothing to talk about. Samsonov wrote a complete alien, there is no time to expose. When we have a Christian church and writers in Russia minted idols ...

      First: And who rushes you? request "Expose" and Samsonov and Russia, as you always do (see your posts).
      Secondly, do not confuse the people of Bulgaria with its current, mentally retarded leadership (I knew the situation in Bulgaria when it was the "fiefdom" of Russia and now).
      Thirdly, to your "conclusions" and squeals - "Russia, repent, kneel before the" civilized "west, maybe we will forgive you ..." we no longer react No. (From your explanations it has long been clear that the Flood and the Ice Age are all we Russians ...)
