New President of Bulgaria recognizes Crimea as Russian and stands for lifting sanctions
“Without denying the line of the EU and NATO, he promises not to forget about national interests. And among them there is an obvious rapprochement with Russia. It was clear from Radev’s statements during the campaign.
Firstly, the presidential contender advocates for the lifting of sanctions that have hit the agriculture of Bulgaria. Secondly, at the previous debate Radev recognized that the Crimea had in fact become the Russian territory, and people have the right for self-determination,” says Russian state TV.
