      Seek the Russians: Vassilev protected by Kremlin players

      If you want to know how things panned out in the aftermath of the biggest financial scheme in Bulgarian history, the collapse of Corpbank, seek the Russian trail.

      Russian propaganda with three pillars in Bulgaria

      The Russian propaganda in Bulgaria is standing on three pillars that were first positioned in the most important areas of public life – culture, entrepreneurship and politics – as early as the country’s process of transitioning to democracy.

      Russian trace in money helping Gebrev seize Dunarit (INVESTIGATION)

      A Russian trace and the shadow of the Federal Security Service (FSS) of Russia lurk around the money that Tsvetan Vassilev’s associate Emiliyan Gebrev paid to try and seize control of Dunarit. Meanwhile, in order to draw attention away from the Vassilev-Gebrev duo’s attempts to acquire the military plant with money that can be traced back to the Kremlin, the media outlets funded by the fugitive banker and his oligarchic friends are trying to pin non-existent appetites for Dunarit and absolutely fictitious Russian ties on lawmaker and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski (See here).
