“Democratic Bulgaria” (DB) is deeply disturbed by the humiliation of the Bulgarian institutions in the face of Vladimir Putin’s escalating imperial militarism.
The blatant nuclear blackmail, the irresponsible putting of nuclear infrastructure at risk, the throwing of hundreds of thousands of new people into the fire of the conflict and the seizure of large territories from sovereign Ukraine are an immediate threat to the security of all of Europe.
They are a real and immediate threat to the security of Bulgaria as a country located close to the theater of military operations and relying for its security on the existing order in the region.
And while Europe and the world have categorically condemned the announced new escalation of Putin’s aggression and are taking concrete actions, the Bulgarian president and his official government are silent and inactive”.
UN investigators have said war crimes have been committed in the conflict in Ukraine, citing Russian bombing of civilian areas, multiple executions, torture and horrific sexual abuse.
“I am Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Alekseevich Ermalaev. I was born in 1959. I was mobilized on September 22. There was no medical commission. The doctor said that with my illnesses I could go to war. We were told that we would have two weeks of training and we were going to the front. According to the presidential decree, people up to 55 years old can be mobilized. And I’m 63Alexander says in the video.
An American aircraft carrier arrived today in South Korea for the first time in five years, world agencies reported. The docking of the nuclear-capable aircraft carrier is part of joint exercises between the two countries, but also a show of force against North Korea.
The nuclear aircraft carrier “Ronald Reagan” as well as ships from its operational staff docked in the South Korean port city of Busan in the southeastern part of the country, BTA reported.
The aide of the head of state in Kyiv said that the “show” simply served as a background for the partial mobilization in Russia. “The occupied territories must be released immediately,” Podoliak stressed at the same time.
In the Russian-controlled parts of Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions, referendums on the accession of these regions to the country began today.
Kyiv threatened the referendum organizers with prosecution for treason. In addition, obtaining Russian passports, especially by employees of the state administration, is punishable under Ukrainian law.
“We don’t understand what the hysteria is about President Vladimir Putin’s partial mobilization order“, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
