      Who is afraid of revision of transition to democracy?

      Thirty years after 10th November 1989, the term "transition" still works flawlessly in our country, the same way as the English salt does. Especially, if it is combined with another term - "revision". A few days ago, it became clear that ultimately, such a revision might be finally conducted. GERB party (Citizens for European development of Bulgaria) insisted on establishment of a commission of inquiry, charged to investigate what happened in the murky 1990s in Bulgaria. Their idea was supported by the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF), which pointed out that such a proposal has been repeatedly submitted by the lawmaker Delyan Peevski.

      Truly terrified of the fear (of Delyan Peevski)

      To be truly terrified of the fear. If you don't believe - just take a look at the publications of Ivo Prokopiev and his fellows - those "honest" privatisers, who turned for one night from shabby fellows - keen on power in their nature into (multi) millionaires by means of the stolen state money and with the blessing of their father figure, namely the former PM Ivan Kostov.

      Oligarchy triumvirate attacks Peevski

      Another piece of fake news, which was concocted by the oligarchy, alleging that PM Boyko Borissov and the MP and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski are in factual diarchy, was posted on the negligible website Sega owned by the natural gas tycoon Sasho Donchev. Etymology of the term “diarchy” comes from ancient Greek and means a form of governing in which two people rule together having equal powers.

    • Prokopiev - the coronavirus of Bulgarian journalism

      Prokopiev - the coronavirus of Bulgarian journalism

      A coronavirus is haunting Bulgarian journalism. The coronavirus of Prokopiev's mainstream media machine. Just like Covid-19, it attacks underhandedly and relentlessly and spreads hotbeds of contagion. However, in contrast to the coronavirus, it has not been spreading for just several months, but for two decades now, in a bid to hit real journalism and put on artificial respiration the freedom of speech in Bulgaria.

      Prokopiev casts his NGO net to catch BGN 100m worth of budget money

      NGOs affiliated with the indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev are going to distribute the money that the government has earmarked for promoting civil society and funding projects of significance for society as a whole. This is made obvious by the list of 14 organisations that are going to be represented on the new Council for the Development of Civil Society.

    • Monopoly over truth or the oligarchs’ distorting mirror

      Monopoly over truth or the oligarchs’ distorting mirror

      One of the treasured dreams of any behind-the-scenes player is to create a monopoly over the truth. If we think of journalism as a lantern which throws light on the shady affairs and shows the naked truth about them then the ultimate goal of murky players is to hold fast of the lantern to avoid the possibility that light will be thrown on their own crimes.

    • Prokopiev captures Strasbourg Court through strawman

      Prokopiev captures Strasbourg Court through strawman

      Indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev is on his way to gaining control of the decision-making process at the Strasbourg Court after one of the most loyal, prominent and well-paid puppets of the Bulgarian oligarchy in the European institutions, the scandalous representative of our country in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) Yonko Grozev, got himself a top position there. On 24 April he was elected to head one of the five ECHR sections, making him part of the management of the institution – the so-called Grand Chamber.

    • Mainstream’s motto: no news without a lie about Delyan Peevski

      Mainstream’s motto: no news without a lie about Delyan Peevski

      Every news – a fake news. This is the motto which inspires shock working at the offices of the oligarchic mainstream. The machine generating fakes is buzzing with activity at the media outlets sustained by Bulgaria’s behind-the-scenes clique – a group of indicted oligarchs, such as Ivo Prokopiev, Tsvetan Vassilev, Ognyan Donev and Sasho Donchev who for years now are using every newsworthy event in the country for attacking with lies the foes of their mentors.
