  • 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.

    He is Ognyan before God, agent Academician before State Security and ardent opponent of Peevski before society

    In 1986 the informers of the State Security Agency numbered 61,000. Some of those “collaborators” are still active. And are still suffering from multiple personality disorder being torn between their life of ordinary citizens and the role of secret agents. Among the State Security activists there is one journalist, who today caters for the interests of fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev.

    Hristo Grozev from Bellingcat: Gebrev was not poisoned because of Dunarit

    The theory about Dunarit (as the reason behind the attempted poisoning of Emiliyan Gebrev) is rather unlikely. This is what journalist Hristo Grozev, who is part of the team behind the Dutch investigative website Bellingcat, recently told bTV. In his opinion, the assassination attempt was possibly motivated by Russia’s displeasure over certain trade operations conducted by Gebrev.

  • 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.
