      Rotund internet troll working for Prokopiev lies on air

      Did you know that there is a Bulgarian “politician”, who uses the Google search engine like a public register? A place where he can procure “evidence” against the enemies of his bosses (oligarchs who control mainstream media and employ talking heads like him to discredit said enemies).

      Delyan Peevski and Bulgarian society under attack from State Security and Kostov’s oligarchs

      Thirty years – that is how long the oligarchs in Bulgaria have been doing what they do best and what has helped them suck the state dry – divide society and engineer crises. All in the name of accumulating more and more wealth on the back of the people. Today, Ivo Prokopiev, Ognyan Donev, Sasho Donchev, Tsvetan Vassilev, the cream of the Bulgarian oligarchs, are in the role of vultures wanting to feast on carrion.

    • Oligarchs who stole BGN 30bn attack donors

      Oligarchs who stole BGN 30bn attack donors

      There are two types of people: donors – people who help those in need without looking for something in return; and plunderers – people who will never be seen donating and whose every last wad of cash is stolen from the Bulgarian citizens. Two things characterise the second group. First, they bark a lot – to drown out the calls for retribution for their crimes; to divide, as they feed off of divisions in society; and to draw attention away from their shady deals. Second, pressed to answer inconvenient questions, they tuck tail and whine about being victims.

      Delyan Peevski and Radio Free Europe lies

      Once upon a time there was a radio called Free Europe. In the obscurantist times of an even more obscurantist regime the waves of Free Europe brought a fresh waft of hope for the Bulgarians. Hope for democracy, freedom and truth which the people in these latitudes were so badly missing out on.

      Charity that offends (the oligarchs)

      Can good be misrepresented as bad? This might sound philosophical and abstract, but let us try and answer a couple of simple questions anyway. Can a person who lends a helping hand in a time of unprecedented crisis be bad? Conversely, can people who view money as more important than human life and are ready to brush aside the number of coronavirus victims as long as their businesses survive be called good and moral?

    • Oligarchs unleash sociologist and millionaire Raychev to protect their money

      Oligarchs unleash sociologist and millionaire Raychev to protect their money

      The oligarchs are putting to work their entire arsenal of weapons to pressure the state into easing the measures taken against the spread of the new coronavirus. To that end, the leaders of the behind-the-scenes clique in Bulgaria have called on the services of a small army of paid mouthpieces tasked with convincing society that the crackdown on movement of people is unnecessary and that efforts should be focused primarily on saving the economy. The reason behind this concerted attack is the behind-the-scenes clique’s desire to save its businesses, built on our money, putting our health at risk in the process.

    • Yes, Bulgaria and an outstretched hand

      Yes, Bulgaria and an outstretched hand

      Once upon a time in some village a very stingy man was drowning. A crowd gathered around willing to help. People cried to him: “Come on, give us a hand, we’ll pull you out!” But the man was so stingy that he couldn’t understand the word “give”. Even drowning he clenched his fists and cried for help. Then one of the villagers thought of calling to him: “Here, take my hand, take it and I will save you.”

      Delyan Peevski and the plague that unmasked misanthropes

      The most recognisable symbol of the plague epidemic that swept across Europe in the 17th century is the doctor’s mask with the bird-like beak. The horrifying costume was created to protect physicians from the Black Death, which claimed over 70,000,000 victims on the continent. Despite the chilling image it presented, the mask ironically became a symbol of hope for salvation, lending the people who wore it the status of heroes.

      Under quarantine attacks against Peevski don’t stop

      In the hard days, when the state has mobilised all its resources to prevent the spread of coronavirus pandemic in Bulgaria the oligarchs who are lousy with money crawled out to defend their private interests. The peak cynicism is that some of the wealthiest people in Bulgaria not only refuse to take part in the battle against coronavirus but discredit the efforts of others along these lines.

      The truth is out: Oligarchs fund their media outlets to keep them afloat

      Indicted oligarchs pour money into their losing media businesses in order to have the power to exert public pressure. This has been revealed by the statements of ownership and funding submitted by the media groups in Bulgaria and disclosed by the Ministry of Culture. The registry was set up with the so-called “Peevski” media amendment in November 2018.
