In the capital of Bulgaria, local authorities have resumed work on dismantling the monument to the Soviet Army

The monument to the Soviet Army in the Bulgarian capital Sofia continued to be dismantled. The BTA news agency reported this, emphasizing that conservation work on the monument began on Monday.

History The dismantling of the monument to the Soviet Army began on December 12, 2023. The corresponding decision was made by the head of the Sofia region, Vera Todeva. As an argument for the demolition of the monument, Todeva referred to the allegedly emergency condition of the object. Dismantling work began, during which all sculptures were removed from the pedestal.



Then the political party "Renaissance" filed a lawsuit. Dismantling work, in accordance with the court decision, was suspended. But then the Supreme Administrative Court (SAC) of Bulgaria overturned the decision of the administrative court of Sofia. Consequently, the Sofia authorities immediately resumed dismantling work. Yesterday, the facing tapes with inscriptions were removed from the monument.

Let us remind you that the monument to the Soviet Army was erected in Sofia in 1954. Since 1993, the Sofia authorities have tried to remove the monument, but have always encountered active opposition from pro-Russian political forces and citizens.

The desire to quickly dismantle the monument to the Soviet Army fits into the general concept of de-Sovietization and de-Russification carried out by the authorities of many countries of the former socialist camp and the post-Soviet space. The Western-oriented Bulgarian authorities are trying to completely erase any positive historical memory of Russian and Soviet traces in the national history.

      Everyone who was helped to free themselves is now an enemy, starting with assistance to the newly created United States, and then from the Ottoman yoke, and from Hitler, this is our headache.

      The Bulgarians have always betrayed Russia.

      The First and Second World Wars, joining NATO...

      Spit on them and grind them. And give it to the Turks.

            So what, comrade minuser?
            Will you deny historical veils as “minuses”?
            Bulgaria fought against the USSR in order to call it a traitor?
            Romania, Croatia, Slovakia, Hungary fought. Bulgaria - no.
            But for some reason there are no complaints against Romania, which was also liberated from the Turkish yoke.

            And Hungary, which today is in NATO but refuses to participate in 404 assistance, is also a “traitor”?

              or maybe he can tell you about how the Germans were treated and rehabilitated in Bulgaria, who then went to kill our people, about the military convoys for the Reich in which the Bulgarians took part?!!!!!!
              Enough of this tale about how all these Slavs didn’t fight, in the Soviet Union there was at least some kind of ideological basis for this, now why are we snot?
              they all participated in the murders of our people, directly or indirectly, someone riveted tanks, someone fed the army, someone treated them, THEY ARE ALL KILLERS AND RAPISTS

                Tell me, of course.
                The Swedes, the World Bank and even the USA sank Soviet submarines. But for some reason you don’t call them accomplices in the war against the USSR.

                or maybe he can talk about how the Germans underwent treatment and rehabilitation in Bulgaria, who then went to kill our people,

                Treatment, rehabilitation and participation in a war with the killing of military and civilians, the destruction of cities, the burning of villages - is this the same thing in your opinion? By the way, by definition there could be no rehabilitation there. You should study the terminology before throwing words around

                The USSR also actively traded with the 3rd Reich during operations against Poland, by the way, occupying parts of this country! Against Denmark, Norway, France, Great Britain.

                By your logic, this makes the USSR an accomplice of Hitler, albeit temporarily.
                Congratulations. This is precisely the idea that the USA and Great Britain are promoting today.

          During World War II, Bulgaria did not fight against the USSR, did not declare war on the USSR
          During World War II, Bulgaria was a member of the Berlin Pact. Bulgaria was an ally of Germany. Bulgaria, together with Germany, participated in the attack on Yugoslavia and Greece. Bulgaria declared war on the USA and Great Britain. There were German troops on Bulgarian territory. But she did not declare war on the USSR and did not send troops to the Eastern Front. She should also be given a bonus wink

            "The Bulgarians have always betrayed Russia."
            Question - how does NON-PARTICIPATION in the war against the USSR and FAILURE to send troops against the USSR correspond to the phrase “betrayed Russia”
            She betrayed the 3rd Reich by her non-participation, but not “Russia” (historically correct USSR)

            In general, you understand the difference between participation and non-participation in the war.
            Now, if I had participated, then yes, I would have betrayed her. And so it turns out that no
            Breaking the pattern of minusers.

            PS Bulgaria, as in World War 1, decided on its purely personal interests in the Balkans and Greece + returned territories from Romania, an ally of the 3rd Reich.

                Insanity! I have never heard a more contrived argument. According to this “logic,” Italy should be called an ally of the USSR.
                Because thanks to them, the 3rd Reich was forced to transfer significant forces to the African Front))))))))))))))))

                What specific resources did Bulgaria supply to the 3rd Reich, if it did not officially participate in these supplies for the war in the USSR?
                And in this regard, Bulgaria should not be confused with “neutral” Sweden and Turkey

                  Bulgaria supplied the Reich with food and raw materials, and participated in the transportation and protection of military cargo in the Black Sea (the Bulgarian transport "Varna" with a load of ammunition was sunk on August 20, 1943 directly off the Crimea).

                        Once again, the USSR also supplied food to the 3rd Reich + also resources.
                        Are we also accomplices? The World Bank and the United States are already actively promoting this topic: at the beginning of World War 3, Hitler and Stalin, who helped him, are to blame.
                        Bravo!
                        By the way, the USA also supplied products, I’m silent about Turkey and Sweden, as if they are still considered neutral

              So during wars, if it is a secret, everyone decides on their purely personal interests. Germany fought for its living space, Finland for its “lost lands,” Romania for Bessarabia, Italy for tearing off a piece of Southern Europe, even Poland, cursed by everyone, seemed to be fighting for a piece of Czechoslovakia. Or will you say that Germany fought exclusively against Bolshevism and for the ideals of National Socialism? And for nothing else. And having defeated the Bolsheviks, Germany restores Russia, returns its historical territories (Poland and Finland are annexed to Russia at a minimum) and leaves its territory? And the Bulgarians act as in that proverb: If you don’t know how to thank them, pay with black ingratitude. We probably should have negotiated with the Turks at one time while they were slaughtering the Bulgarians, and not put our Russian soldiers on the same Shipka. Tell me: how is it that ordinary Bulgarians seem to love Russia, but always choose rulers who hate Russia?! And they are now supplying shells to Ukraine - personal interests also decide, after all, this is business, it’s just money. And so we are brotherly people and love you very much. So what?

                    I’ve already answered the above 100500 times and it’s not enough to repeat.

                    Dates written out:
                    Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact
                    Dates of Bulgaria's accession to the Axis
                    Date of invasion of the USSR

                    When you write down the dates, then answer the question of whether Bulgaria entered into an alliance deliberately directed against the USSR or not.

                      This begs a counter question. How could Bulgaria, which owed its emergence as a state and the lives of its subjects, even take part in the 3rd Pact?! Serbia and Greece were not members and even fought against Germany, but the Bulgarians did not participate, and why? Why didn’t the Bulgarians repay us in the same coin that we once paid for their life and freedom? That your panties are closer to your butt? Yes, their very participation in the pact was a betrayal. You know, in the Criminal Code of the RSFSR there was such an article 77 Banditry. So, under this article, all gang members were held criminally liable, even if they did not take part in specific attacks. I emphasize once again that they were responsible for participating in the gang. And you tell us: Bulgaria is not responsible. Yes, I was involved in a gang, but it wasn’t out of malice. Bulgaria in the bandit group was simply pursuing its own personal interests, nothing more. But what about the recognition of the SS as a criminal organization? The SS man may have been a clerk in the rear, but now imagine a criminal. He may have loved children, he had never seen a gun, he didn’t know anything about the concentration camps, but he was a criminal. As I understand it, if it were not for the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, Bulgaria would never have entered into an alliance with Germany. Yes, she didn’t care about Russia and the pact. After all, you’re right here, she solved her own issues, but she didn’t care about bandits or anyone else. She lost the Balkan war to the Greeks and Yugoslavs. So I decided to take away someone else’s. And she would have joined even if there had been no Pact at that time. It seems that Bulgaria was waiting for the conclusion of the pact, and then said: well, if that’s the case, then we’ll join. And as soon as Germany attacks the USSR, we will immediately leave and will have no business with either Germany or Italy. Because it is fundamental for Bulgaria not to deal with those who encroach on the USSR.

                        Read at least on your favorite Wikipedia who was not part of the Axis, but fought on their side: Thailand, Iraq and Iran, Finland
                        And Yugoslavia, by the way, didn’t even join the Axis for long

                        I just don’t understand the “logic” of this argument: Bulgaria is to blame for being in the Axis. But at the same time she did not fight against the USSR

                        Yes, historically Bulgaria was to blame for being on the side of Germany. And it doesn’t matter whether she fought or not. You did not answer my question: is the SS clerk to blame for the fact that others, and not he, burned people? This is a very important concept of definitions, not nonsense. If he is not guilty of specific crimes, then the SS man is not guilty of SS crimes. If he is guilty, then everyone who took part in the gangster union of Germany is guilty. Please make up your mind - this is important. Then the Nuremberg Tribunal is illegal. He defined collective responsibility, and this is unacceptable by law. Make up your mind, if Bulgaria was in a gang of bandits and did not fight, did not burn - it is not guilty?!

                        You really, already 5, got it.
                        The timing of Bulgaria’s entry into the Axis says directly that it did not enter there to fight the USSR, because the USSR and Germany had relatively friendly relations and active foreign trade. And she did not fight with the USSR until the USSR itself began a military operation against Bulgaria.
                        Once again, syllable by syllable
                        Bulgaria did not participate in the war against the USSR. Not sending troops, like Norway, Denmark, Spain, France, for example
                        This is a fact that cannot be erased from history by anything or any “cons”.
                        At least poop on the minuses.
                        And how many generals from Bulgaria appeared at the Nuremberg trials? Remind me the number?

                        And now to your question:

                        Have a family. The husband turned out to be a murderer.
                        So you propose to call his wife a murderer because she was in an alliance with him called marriage?
                        Maybe we should still call children murderers?


                        This is exactly the INSANITY you are writing.
                        The historical fact is that Bulgaria did not break diplomatic relations with the USSR, did not send troops, like Vichy France, Franco’s Spain, “neutral” Sweden and “allied” Denmark.
                        And don’t rewrite this fact with any of your verbiage.
                        And if you want, you will suddenly discover that he did everything the same before June 1941, including the supply of materials, food, transit, and even joint aggression against Poland. That, too, with your verbiage, “this is different,” you cannot erase from history. The USSR was not white and fluffy. And he was in alliance with Hitler.
                        So we don’t even have the moral right to judge Bulgaria for the fact that they entered into an alliance with the Axis, being actually armed by this very Axis. And they could well repeat the fate of occupied Greece. And the fact is that it is the only member of the Axis that did not fight with the USSR. And, therefore, there is no reason, other than ignorance of history, to claim that Bulgaria betrayed the USSR in World War II.
                        No matter how dubious facts attract your ears.
                        Point.

                  Since as of September 5, 1944, there were 30 thousand German military personnel on the territory of Bulgaria[42], the Soviet government sent a note to the Bulgarian government informing them of the severance of relations with Bulgaria and declaring a state of war between the Soviet Union and Bulgaria, due to the fact that Bulgaria was actually is waging war on the side of Germany against the USSR[43].

                  On September 5, Soviet troops of the 3rd Ukrainian Front, in cooperation with the Black Sea Fleet, reached the Romanian-Bulgarian border in Dobruja, crossed the border of Bulgaria and began advancing across the country. Despite the state of war with the USSR, during the Bulgarian operation the Red Army did not encounter any resistance from the Bulgarian army, and the population greeted Soviet soldiers with flowers and red flags.

              Why distort so much? The USSR did not provide territory and ports to the Nazi army, and did not fight on the side of the Reich. The troops entered Polish territory after the military-political leadership left the country. Even about “accelerating” it is debatable - the Wehrmacht occupied Brest before the Red Army.

      In an amicable way, it is necessary to dismantle the whole of Europe with the subsequent establishment of a protectorate. Otherwise, these scum cannot be stopped.

    The monument to the Soviet Army in the Bulgarian capital Sofia continued to be dismantled
    The Bulgarians have long gone to great lengths in relation to Russia. No matter how it turns out, like in WW2, when at the end of the war it suddenly turned out that they had chosen the wrong ally. Political prostitutes, as Vladimir Ilyich would say.

      No, Ilyich would have talked about the bourgeoisie and the exploiting classes. Don't confuse clowns and learned people in politics.

    It's simple... every nation has the government that has it.
    It’s pointless to talk about choice without choice... those who don’t need choice don’t have it.

    The most paradoxical thing in life is that peoples to whom good has been done unselfishly and freedom has been given, always betray, and peoples who have been subjected to genocide and nuclear bombing (for example, Japan) love their offenders and oppressors to death... so do good people, it comes out sideways...

    As are the people, so is the government, Elena (Egoze)....

    But then the Supreme Administrative Court (SAC) of Bulgaria overturned the decision of the administrative court of Sofia
    it was still necessary to cancel the liberation from the Ottoman yoke

      In general, then everything did not go democratically, without elections and their recognition by the “world community”, maybe they didn’t want to...
      The world has gone crazy, we need to reset and reboot.

    We ourselves are ashamed, to put it mildly, of our Soviet past, the nailing up of the Mausoleum to which they threw the standards of defeated Hitler Germany is worth something, then why demand anything else from a country that is also part of a hostile military-political bloc. And historical memory, no matter what anyone writes, is short. request

    in truth, it is not Bulgaria that deserves this monument. The Soviet soldiers who finished off fascism in its many different lairs deserve a monument. But it is clear that the Soviet soldiers did not finish off fascism in its various lairs. The monument, of course, will fall from the descendants of the undead fascists. And therefore, in my opinion, it is better to bring the unarmed monument to the heroes to Russia for now, while the current descendants of those heroes whose monument symbolizes unfinish the work that the Soviet soldiers did not complete without finishing off the fascists completely. This applies not only to Bulgaria... but especially to Bulgaria. And then, after a new and final Victory, the monument can be returned to its place in Bulgaria. But the whole point of the descendants of the fascists who were not killed then is that they will not allow this monument to be brought to Russia. They need it there, in Bulgaria, in order to mock Russia not only by the process of dismantling this monument, but also by exhibiting it in some kind of pen, stall or enclosure, as if in a zoo.
    It is obvious that Lavrov’s office is powerless here, and it was not strong in these matters anyway... it only drew red lines. The only hope is in Shoigu’s office... but the work is long and gradual... that’s how many Nazis who were not killed by Soviet soldiers stood in line

    Among the enemies of the USSR, it was only the Bolsheviks-communists who, after the October Revolution, were obliged to leave all the monuments of tsarism, all churches, leave the kulaks, and they themselves, after their counter-revolution in their Perestroika, believe that they have the right to demolish, destroy, destroy everything Soviet / communist.

          you are paranoid, what makes you think that I am an enemy of the USSR?!!!!
          from my point of view, the USSR was the highest point of development of the country throughout history, excuse me, you remind me of an inquisitor who, when he sees ANY beautiful girl, thinks about how he will burn her, and not about her beauty

    Why did we save these little brothers to the Russian-Turkish war? It would be better if the Turks slaughtered them when suppressing the uprising.
