      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.

    • Emiliyan Gebrev lies about Dunarit on air

      Emiliyan Gebrev lies about Dunarit on air

      There is one basic rule that every liar tries to stick to: always remember exactly how you lied about something because the mastery of lying is in the details. In other words, in the era of internet and free access to information, every word can be checked and therefore be the reason why a lie is exposed. The arms dealer Emiliyan Gebrev must have skipped these lessons in his communist training prior to 10 November 1989 because he dares to lie shamelessly on national air these days – and about things that can be checked with one click, at that.

      Capital is persistent in lies about Peevski

      What do the oligarchs put at stake in their battle against Delyan Peevski, the sworn enemy of the backstage machinations in Bulgaria? You can judge by yourselves if you only take the trouble to finger through the pages of the flagship newspaper of the oligarchs’ disinformation fleet – the Capital.

    • Prosecutor General: No evidence Gebrev was poisoned with Novichok

      Prosecutor General: No evidence Gebrev was poisoned with Novichok

      There is no evidence to suggest that businessman Emiliyan Gebrev was poisoned with the same substance as Skripal. Blood and urine tests did not detect traces of the so-called Novichok nerve agent. The tests were conducted by an independent private Finish laboratory and Bulgarian forensic medicine experts. A GRU agent involved in the Skripal case was in Bulgaria on three separate occasions. Prosecutor General Sotir Tsatsarov reported all of this following a meeting with Prime Minister Boyko Borissov.
