    • This Peevski is not that Peevski

      This Peevski is not that Peevski

      “Peevski granted permission to build in Mladost,” pronounces a headline in the website Frognews owned by Ognyan Stefanov (aka Agent Academician). And some too-busy-to-read-further resident of the aforementioned neighbourhood in the capital Sofia undoubtedly got up in arms about the fact that Peevski would be building something in the area. This Peevski, however, is not that Peevski.

    • Delyan Peevski’s name “leaked” to oligarchic websites alongside water crisis

      Delyan Peevski’s name “leaked” to oligarchic websites alongside water crisis

      The theme of water crisis in Pernik has leaked to the oligarchs’ websites albeit seen from a weird perspective – contrary to any reason and completely out of line these websites quote the name of lawmaker and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski. The so-called “media” servicing the oligarchs’ interests follow this tradition with enviable tenacity. Because the assignment sent down to them by their publishers is to pin the name of Peevski on any resonant theme.

      Political chameleon Kutev wins points at the expense of Delyan Peevski

      The political chameleon Anton Kutev, a leftwing lawmaker, is keeping up the tradition of trying to win points at the expense of MP of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski. Also in accordance with tradition, Kutev was helped in his endeavour by the mainstream media controlled by oligarch Ivo Prokopiev – bTV, more specifically. True to himself, Kutev also did not provide any evidence in support of his words.

    • Thief Tsvetan Vassilev churns out transparent lies about Delyan Peevski

      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.

    • Standard Prokopiev & Co. lies about Peevski

      Standard Prokopiev & Co. lies about Peevski

      Do you know what a vulture is? Textbooks teach us that it is a large bird of prey feeding on carcasses. Some people may be under the impression that this species can only be found in the animal kingdom. Alas, this could not be further from the truth. The difference is that while the animal vulture picks on dead meet to survive, its human counterpart greedily exploits every tragedy that strikes society to rack up points and achieve their goals, at the expense of that same society, of course.

    • Tsvetan Vassilev and his 1001 lies

      Tsvetan Vassilev and his 1001 lies

      “Lies underlie the monopoly of truth.” This maxim was formulated not anywhere else but in the former USSR. It originates in the bowels of the Soviet brainwashing machine, which applies this principle to this day, years after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Every partisan of the idea to return Bulgaria into the orbit of a Russian satellite, so dear to the pro-Kremlin circles, knows it by rote.

      Fugitive banker commissions films targeting Peevski

      Ex-banker Tsvetan Vassilev who is hiding out in Serbia to escape justice commissions media onslaughts and films targeting the sworn enemy of the oligarchy in Bulgaria – Delyan Peevski. The lawmaker of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) and publisher of Telegraph Media for years has been the target of the backstage power brokers owing to his legislative initiatives aimed to forestall their shady affairs as well as to the journalistic inquires published in his media outlets.

      Georgi Georgiev comes out with odious lie

      Georgi Georgiev, leader of the quasi-NGO BOETS has hit the moral rock bottom when he made his family drama a weapon in an odious political hole-and-corner intrigue. Quite expectedly this nefarious suggestion was readily picked up by the organised media group of the oligarchy. And washing dirty linen in public was presented as a pursuit of high moral principles.

    • It all circles back to Peevski

      It all circles back to Peevski

      The European Commission (EC) has determined that Bulgaria has made sufficient progress on implementing the recommendations made under the EU monitoring mechanism that focuses on judicial reform, corruption and organised crime and clearly believes that the mechanism should be scrapped. What is the EC thinking, acting as if it is above Hristo Ivanov and Atanas Atanasov from Yes, Bulgaria?
