      Illusionist Cholakov pulls a lie about Delyan Peevski out of his top-hat instead of a rabbit

      Petar Cholakov, who is Ivo Prokopiev’s guy in the Bulgarian desk of Deutsche Welle, has one job: to voice the oligarch’s thoughts. The master of the mainstream media machine in Bulgaria, Prokopiev has been trying to escape the clutches of the judicial system for years. To that end, former PM Ivan Kostov’s favourite “investor” during the privatisation process uses all sorts of dirty and despicable machinations. Mostly, he tries to pull wool over people’s eyes by using his giant media empire to produce fake news as well as cheap scripts to exert influence on the executive and judicial branches of power.
