Oligarchs’ “press office” spins fake news about Peevski in Facebook

Sonya Koltuklieva, Iliyan Vassilev and Boets earn their pay with social media posts, Fake News Factory retranslates them

Delyan Peevski

The paid unofficial press office of the oligarchy have been working in high gear on Facebook, targeting primarily lawmaker and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski, reveals a Monitor News Agency study of the social media. As it turns out, some of the most active mouthpieces of the behind-the-scenes clique, like aging journalist Sonya Koltuklieva and former State Security operative with penchant for doing prosecutors’ work Iliyan Vassilev, have found in their dotage a new way to earn the money they are paid for serving indicted oligarchs.

The duo was joined by the NGO Boets, which gained popularity when its leader was photographed meeting with Tsvetan Vassilev, the fugitive banker hiding from the Bulgarian justice system in Belgrade.

All these pawns have the same task – to inundate the internet with the slandering statements and the fabrications of their boss Tsvetan Vassilev. Apparently, the most convenient platform for such work is Facebook. And so the aging former State Security agents and pawns of the Bulgarian Madoff selflessly and like true influencers post on Facebook from dusk till dawn. Then the publications of the Fake News Factory conducted by Ivo Prokopiev, Tsvetan Vassilev, Ognyan Donev and Sasho Donchev retranslate those, generating a wave of fake news.

What all of these Facebook mouthpieces have in common is the fact that they have almost identical posts; spread the theses formulated by Tsvetan Vassilev, who is viewed by his group of little bees as more righteous than the pope; and diligently share links to the third-class TV programme of Lyuba Kulezich. The cousin of another notorious oligarch, Nikolay Banev, the TV host has been playing the role of a microphone stand for the fugitive banker for years. She interviews the Bulgarian Madoff, two-three times a month if need be, listening to his lies with a dull look on her face and no though to asking a single probing question, even for appearance’s sake. A good one would be: “Where is the money of defrauded CorpBank depositors and when do you, Mr Vassilev, plan to return to Bulgaria to be tried for the lender’s draining?” However, such line of questioning aggravates the fugitive banker, which is why the puppet journalist does not even bother offending his ears with it.

A simple perusal of Facebook shows Koltuklieva recently posted on her page four posts dedicated to Peevski within 24 hour. The aging scribbler spews fabrications and fake news against Peevski with the zeal of a Playboy competition winner posting photos of kittens.

The technology behind this fake-news terror is simple but reliant on dozens of cogs working round the clock to make the machine for lies operate. Thanks to this scheme, fake news and slandering information about Peevski has inundated the internet over the past week. Why is he the one being targeted? The answer is crystal clear. Delyan Peevski has served as lawmaker in several consecutive parliaments. He won more votes than the “modern urban rightwing” at the last elections. He is among the MPs who drafted some of the most significant recent amendments to the legislative framework, which are designed to illuminate the media’s dependencies and stop the plundering of the assets of CorpBank, whose failure was engineered by the oligarchy. He is the publisher of Telegraph Media, whose publications have been tirelessly exposing, with facts and evidence, the behind-the-scenes players’ shady deals for years. Naturally, all of this has annoyed certain people to no end so they decided to “save” society from the people who may open its eyes to these wrongdoings.

    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.
