      Capital Film Studio presents: Lords of Junk in smear attack against Delyan Peevski

      The Capital Film Studio has released the latest installment in its fake-news soap opera Lords of Junk, which has been force-fed to its audience for years. The goal of the series is always the same – to take a swipe at enemy №1 of the behind-the-scenes clique Delyan Peevski, who earned that distinction with his legislative initiatives and his publications’ consistent policy of exposing the shady deals of the oligarchs defrauding the Bulgarian public. The series is the work of indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev, who uses the same formula, the same lies. Only the actors change.
