      Thief Tsvetan Vassilev churns out transparent lies about Delyan Peevski

      There is a Bulgarian saying that literally translates as “Lies have short feet”. If we were to modernise it a bit, we would add “and thieves have prolific tongues”. That is especially true when said thieves have billions of levs stolen from CorpBank depositors behind their back. Thanks to the embezzled money, in the case of Tsvetan Vassilev the proverbial tongue is powerful enough to reach Sofia all the way from Belgrade.

      Malofeev and Reshetnikov spread tentacles in Bulgaria right after Crimea

      The so-called Plan Bulgaria with which Kremlin-tied Oligarch Konstantin Malofeev and GRU general Leonid Reshetnikov wanted to turn the geopolitical allegiances of Bulgaria from pro-western to those of a Moscow satellite with the help of the fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev and the leader of the National Movement “Russophiles” Nikolay Malinov is part of a large-sale scheme to assert Russian influence in the entire Balkan Peninsula.

      Dunarit theft emerges from spy scandal too

      The whole scheme devised by the criminal duo Tsvetan Vassilev and Emiliyan Gebrev to steal Dunarit is among the revelations that have come out of the espionage scandal that has rocked Bulgaria over the past few days. A one-page report entitled “Gaining control over Dunarit AD by EMKO EOOD” emerged from the documents seized by the Prosecutor’s Office as part of the investigation that has resulted in the indictment of Nikolay Malinov, former Bulgarian Socialist Party lawmaker and publisher of the newspaper Duma and current head of the National Movement “Russophiles”.

    • Gebrev and Noev use military intelligence for personal benefit

      Gebrev and Noev use military intelligence for personal benefit

      The fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev’s pawns – indicted arms dealer Emiliyan Gebrev and pseudo-diplomat Boyko Noev – have used the resources of the agency Military Information (MI) for personal benefit. Thanks to pressure exerted by Vassilev, who is indicted for the engineered failure of CorpBank and is hiding in Serbia, the two businessmen made use of all MI resources. That included both the agency’s access to highly classified NATO information and using its intelligence officers as brokers in arms deals. These are all “NATO services” invaluable to Vassilev and company, who have serious Russian ties.

    • Substance-induced journalism

      Substance-induced journalism

      To make people like oligarch Ivo Prokopiev and arms dealer Emiliyan Gebrev out to be victims of some kind of imaginary institutional repression is to not only show some true skill at spinning things but some serious mental glitches. The latter can only be explained with two colours – white or green (as you will find out below), or a combination thereof.

    • Why is Emiliyan Gebrev making the rounds of TV studios?

      Why is Emiliyan Gebrev making the rounds of TV studios?

      Tuesday: in the morning – half an hour of airtime on bTV, in the afternoon – 25 minutes on the Bulgarian National Radio, and that same night – one hour on the programme of Sasho Dikov. This is followed by 30 minutes on Bulgaria ON AIR on Wednesday morning. No, this is not the busy schedule of a rock star or some genius inventor. Neither is it the schedule of the country’s president, who surely would have something important to say to the nation.
