Fifty eight per cent of Bulgarians approve Russia’s annexation of Crimea, with 38% against. A similar percentage of Bulgarians were against the NATO strikes on Belgrade over the Kosovo ethnic cleansing by Milosevic. And were against the Kosovo independence.
Each time the going gets tough, a stable majority of Bulgarians approve Russia against the West. Bulgarian Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski reportedly said that his country is likely to use its veto right if the EU decides to impose heavy sanctions on Russia.
Butt let’s look at Serbia. Bulgaria’s western neighbour is even more pro-Russian and its economy is even more dominated by Russia than Bulgaria’s.
The Crimea crisis will have a lot of consequences. It would be logical that that the EU won’t take on board any new ‘Trojan horses’. By the way, a hardcore nationalist has just won absolute majority in the Serbian elections.
P.S. The combined Serbian and Russian flags on the image, a Serbian “souvenir”, say: “Same colors, same faith one blood”.Georgi Gotev
