German edition: In the spring of 2022, Bulgaria secretly provided a third of the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in ammunition

In the spring of 2022, Bulgaria provided up to a third of Ukraine's needs for ammunition, although it did not officially provide military assistance to Kyiv. Welt writes about this in his investigation.

The German publication found that Bulgaria secretly supplied ammunition to Ukraine, and in large quantities, providing up to a third of the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the initial stages of the Russian special operation. Officially, Sofia did not provide any military assistance to the Zelensky regime, the Bulgarian government acted through shill companies that allegedly bought ammunition for themselves or other countries, but supplied them to Ukraine. Deliveries were carried out through Poland, Romania and Hungary, everything was paid from the pocket of the USA and Great Britain.



Former Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov confirmed the secret supply of ammunition to Ukraine, saying that about a third of the ammunition needed by the Armed Forces of Ukraine was of Bulgarian origin. And Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that back in April 2022 he went to Sofia to negotiate the supply of ammunition.

We knew that the Bulgarian warehouses had a large amount of the ammunition we needed, so President Zelensky sent me to use diplomatic dexterity to get the necessary materials.

- said the Ukrainian minister.

In March last year, Bulgaria officially refused to supply Ukraine with weapons and ammunition, the country's prime minister announced this, and a month later the president repeated, so that military assistance was not provided at the official level until November, when the country's People's Assembly approved a bill on providing weapons to Kyiv. Sofia has been openly supplying Zelensky since December weapons.

          Alexander hi ,
          German journalists from Die Welt decided to investigate Bulgaria's activities in relation to the Ukrainian conflict, finding out that the prime minister played a key role in confronting the Russian NWO in the spring.
          As early as February 25, Petkov (Bulgaria's Prime Minister) found himself at an informal EU meeting in Brussels, where he personally urged every European leader to disconnect the country from SWIFT and freeze its assets in foreign banks. In the end, everyone supported this decision.

            "He who does not imagine how the Greeks hate the Bulgarians does not know what hatred is"...

            In 1912 Serbs, Greeks and Bulgarians waged war against the Ottoman Empire. If the Turks had won, nothing would have overshadowed the friendship of the allies, but they won to their misfortune.
            And they began to divide the booty ...
            In general, the Turks, in the context of hatred, immediately faded into the background ...

            Yes, like a month. Officially delivered to Europe, but then - it's clear where. American deliveries to Israel in the 1970s after the 1973 war went into action. The volumes are still 300 units of 000 mm caliber.

        "Brothers" are very offended by us. In their opinion, since we helped them get rid of the Turks, it means that we had to help them until the end of their days against everyone with whom the Bulgarians decide to fight.

      You might think that the Germans discovered a great secret. Even with the beginning of the conflict, how many our military correspondents made in Bulgaria showed on TV. These are cartridges, shots for RPGs and AGS, grenades, shells. Podlyanki from the side of the Bulgarians are pouring in systematically. And as soon as they feel that krants are coming to Kyiv, they will hasten to declare "war" on it, as it was in WW2 with Germany.
