“The Russian defense industry is on the rise”: the President of Bulgaria criticized the counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
Bulgarian President Rumen Radev voiced his vision of the situation surrounding the Ukrainian conflict.
- said the president, criticizing the military operation of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
According to him, now, after the failure of the counteroffensive, Russia feels a military upsurge and rejects a ceasefire. He believes both sides in the conflict made poor strategic judgments. Moscow vaguely and inadequately formulated its political goals [before the start of the Northern Military District] and underestimated the will of the Ukrainian people to fight, and Kyiv underestimated the military and economic potential of the Russian Federation.
- Radev noted.
According to him, these conclusions were not formed by himself, but by the position of leading politicians, high-ranking military personnel, analysts and the press throughout the Western world. Therefore, he expressed the hope that the epithet “Putinists” would not be attached to all of them. The local publication Mediapool, which quotes him, calls Radev “one of the few European leaders who allowed themselves to take pro-Russian positions.”
- explained the president.
He believes that the energy war [against Russia] has led to Europe beginning to lag behind the United States and China.
- Radev believes, pointing out that if this problem is not solved, the difference in development will only increase.
