      Oppressive shadow diplomacy

      The official start of the Euro vote campaign was announced in Bulgaria less than a week ago. The developments of the following five days can hardly be described logically, because they are barren of worldly logics but result from most vulgar hysteria.

      Greedy former agents slither out… to defame Peevski

      “Greedy old men slither out to get some sunshine” is an outrageous headline that the partisan newspaper Democracy came up with in 1992 when covering a story about pensioners demonstrating outside of the Council of Ministers’ headquarters. The times were rough back then and the media outlet was serving the interests of its righting patrons.

      All (the oligarchic media) against Peevski (SUMMARY)

      During the Easter holidays, some indulge in Easter bread and lamb dishes and others – in fake news. The media outlets of oligarchic publishers Ivo Prokopiev, Ognyan Donev, Sasho Donchev and Tsvetan Vassilev offered their small readership an alternative Easter menu. Vassilev is not officially a publisher, but funds a well-paid press office team of puppet journalists behind the scenes with money he stole from CorpBank. This entire gang has a common enemy – lawmaker of the opposition party Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski – whom its media showers with fake-news concoctions on command.

      Disinformation under the shadow of fake Russian ties

      The MEP candidacy of Delyan Peevski, a lawmaker of the opposition party Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and Telegraph Media publisher, set off a true cannonade of smear campaign operations against him last week. It ranged from the already disproven fake news items about how the ALDE supposedly did not want Peevski in Brussels to the old refrain (also disproven dozens of times) about Russian ties of the lawmaker.
