German press: Bulgaria opposes the deployment of NATO military contingent on its territory

53

There are no prerequisites for the deployment of NATO troops on the territory of Bulgaria, and the movement of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border is not such a reason. Bulgaria opposes the deployment of NATO military contingent on its territory, according to the German newspaper Der Spiegel.


The publication refers to the entry made by the Bulgarian Minister of Defense on its own Facebook page. In it, Yanov writes that at the moment there are no prerequisites to justify the deployment of NATO troops in Bulgaria. Thus, he commented on the statement of the Supreme Commander of NATO forces, General Tod Walters, who proposed to deploy the alliance's troops on the territory of Bulgaria and Romania in response to the build-up of the Russian military presence on the border with Ukraine.

(...) at this stage there is no reason to consider these events as a direct threat to NATO and the current security zone

- said Stefan Yanov, adding that such a decision does not meet the interests of Bulgaria, as well as NATO.

The German edition emphasizes that the Bulgarians are historically considered a friendly people to Russia.

And here are the readers of another Bulgarian edition "Diary", which published news on the possible deployment of a NATO military contingent on the territory of the country, were divided. According to one part, fortunately smaller, but rejoicing at such an event, NATO troops will "put in place" Russia, which understands only the "language of force." The majority, however, oppose the deployment of the military alliance on their territory, claiming pretexts made up for this, including the "aggressive" Russia.

Meanwhile, last Friday in Brussels, Prime Minister of Bulgaria E. Petkov said that the country is fully in solidarity with the position of Europe and the defensive alliance in relation to Ukraine, but did not discuss the issue of deploying new forces of the alliance.

        2006 On May 25, the Bulgarian parliament, 150 for 22 against, voted for the deployment of a permanent contingent of the US Armed Forces of 2500 people in very tricky bases. They are called not a base, but a training center. There are three or four of them for all types of military. There is also an additional US may accommodate another 2500 people for up to 90 days. Peace-loving Bulgarians? Hey, where are you?

          Andrey, 2021 not 2006! Let's see what else interesting happened in the meantime ... bully
          On June 7, 2007, the Russian Federation adopted Federal Law No. 99-FZ "On the Ratification of the Agreement between the States Parties to the North Atlantic Treaty and other States participating in the Partnership for Peace program, on the status of their Forces dated June 19, 1995, and the Supplementary protocol to him ".
          And that Additional Protocol to the Agreement was signed by the Russian Federation in the city of Sofia on April 28, the same 2006.!
          In the meantime, you worked very actively with NATO, right up to 2008 and even up to 2014. This is a fact. bully

          There are three or four of them for all kinds of military ...

          There are 4 training centers, this is essentially a training ground where our servicemen are trained, mainly from the special forces.

          Peace-loving Bulgarians, where are you?

          Since 1994, in the implementation of international treaties - the CFE Treaty, the Vienna Document and the Open Skies Treaty, The Russian Federation has carried out over 50 inspections of military sites in the territory of Bulgaria. Bulgaria took the Russian military to the Novo Selo training ground and other military objects around Plovdiv, even after the deterioration of relations between NATO and the Russian Federation, as a result of the Ukrainian crisis.

There is my country, there are my troops! I send them as I want and where I want! In my country. Doesn't matter, from south to east or vice versa! But! When you do this at my borders, it cannot but cause concern! This is common logic !!! Or can I tell you how many kilometers the tan is from our borders !? I rarely write here.

                  They deployed missiles in Romania, telling us that they are against Iran. The same was said about Poland. Now to deploy soldiers in Bulgaria to defend the eastern border of Ukraine? Are they there in Washington? Who are we supposed to be? Who will tell them that we also sometimes look at the globe? And, finally, it's time already at the official level, so that it comes down to it, to explain that, By deploying American troops, the Young NATO members do not ensure their safety, but add to the list of targets for our missiles.

                    For four fleets in 9 years, almost 600 calibers have already been deployed. We are folding KTOF, 400 450 calibers should be enough for Europe, this is the first salvo without reloading. It was considered true with ships that are already undergoing acceptance tests.

      It was not so Dimon, it was not so at all ... bully You just need to order chronologically the facts and understand the cause-and-effect relationship between them. Accordingly, who is to blame!
      When we signed the pact, you had a non-aggression pact and delimitation of spheres of influence with Germany for 2 years! The USSR pursued political and economic cooperation with the Axis countries in its own interests. Moreover, according to Chl. 5 of the accession agreement, each Axis member country had the right to conduct relations with the USSR at its own discretion. When Germany and its allies attacked the USSR, Bulgaria did not participate. We maintained quite normal diplomatic relations with the USSR until 05.09.1944/XNUMX/XNUMX.

      At the same time, a communist partisan movement emerged in the country:


      And since September Bulgaria took part in the war against Germany with 3 armies and half a million soldiers.

      The Bulgarian army fought well, the commander-in-chief of the 2BNA Gen. Vl. Stoichev took part in the Victory Parade. hi

    The Minister of Defense, of course, is a serious person, but the final decision is not made by him, unfortunately. So the deployment of NATO troops in Bulgaria is only a matter of time. Well, the fact that "the Bulgarians are historically considered a friendly people of Russia" in no way prevents them from putting a spoke in their wheels, or even directly opposing Russia. The legend of the little brothers absolutely does not stand up to criticism.

    The German edition emphasizes that the Bulgarians are historically considered a friendly people of Russia.

    ***
    "... According to my inner conviction, the most complete and irresistible - Russia will not, and never have had, such haters, envious people, slanderers and even obvious enemies, like all these Slavic tribes, as soon as Russia liberates them, and Europe will agree to recognize them as freed!
    ---
    After liberation, they will begin their new life, I repeat, precisely by asking for themselves from Europe, England and Germany, for example, a guarantee and protection of their freedom, and even though Russia will be included in the concert of the European powers, but they are in protection from Russia and will do it ...

        Allowing foreign military personnel to come to you and letting them build bases is like growing (deliberately!) A malignant tumor on your own. And that's all - then she lives by her own laws!

          Russia has bases on the territory of its allies. And it allows foreign troops on its territory, even signed such an agreement with NATO. In Bulgaria, we are not talking about the creation of full-fledged bases. Exercises are being held, even Serbia took part in our work, so did the Bulgarians. the army is participating in exercises in neighboring countries. There is nothing extraordinary.

    They are considered. And they especially clearly show their friendliness in world wars. They happily rush to Russia, and as soon as Russia hits the Mordas with the "European Union", which invariably includes Bulgaria, they immediately repaint, rush to gnaw at their yesterday's masters.
