Agent Academician dresses up old lies about Delyan Peevski
He outed himself by bringing to light the ties between Frognews, Bivol and the Anti-Corruption fund with pro-Russian propagandaMonitor News Agency , Sofia
Do you remember the short tale The Emperor's New Clothes? The ruler strutted naked before his subjects, having been convinced by his conniving tailors that he was wearing an invisible set of clothes? Well, Ognyan Stefanov, aka Agent Academician of the State Security – the paid mouthpiece of fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev, has assumed the trickster role, very apropos. Seemingly chastised by his mentor and the other indicted oligarchs for not carrying his own weight in the slandering chorus against enemy №1 of the behind-the-scenes clique in Bulgaria – lawmaker and Telegraph Media publisher Delyan Peevski – Stefanov made it so that his website Frognews published old lies dressed up in a new set of words. The hope must have been that readers would be deceived and fail to see that those are nothing but just libel – naked and unsubstantiated.
And so a day after Nikolay Staykov – former Prokopiev employee now disguised as “fighter against corruption” at the Anti-Corruption Fund, which also has direct ties to the kaolin king – churned out the latest episode in the elevator fantasy series against Peevski and his mentors’ foes (read more about the Eight Dwarfs mystification here and here), Agent Academician decided to further develop the tall tales spun there by dusting off the old talking points produced by the cogs of the oligarchs’ machine for media manipulations. The result is a long-form piece containing the claim that an Eight Dwarfs notary signed off on controversial deals linked to Delyan Peevski. The so-called investigation, however, does not point to a single deal that is actually connected to the lawmaker. To compensate for the obvious lack of evidence in support of its allegations, Frognews relies on fabrications about ties between Peevski, on the one hand, and Bulgartabac and Dunarit, on the other – all fables that have been debunked hundreds of times. The Commercial Register clearly shows that the lawmaker never had control of the tobacco company. But as we know, the truth has never been a priority with either the indicted oligarchs or their media machine for inundating the public consciousness with libel and propaganda. As for Dunarit, Peevski has nothing to do with it either, unlike Agent Academician’s benefactor, Tsvetan Vassilev, who for years has been trying to steal the military plant, funded with tens of millions from CorpBank, in order to gift it to his Russian mentors – the Kremlin oligarch Konstantin Malofeev and his associates.
Speaking of Russian connections, those are thickly woven through the Frognews article. In its impotence to prove its claims, the website stands on the lies of the so-called Anti-Corruption Fund, cooked up following Russian propaganda recipes, and resorts to parroting manipulations published in another prominent megaphone of that same propaganda in Bulgaria – Bivol. And so Frognews fell into a trap of its own making by illuminating yet again the roots of the mainstream media machine, through which the oligarchy is polluting the public discourse in the country in a bid to hold the entire public captive to manipulations instead of truth, law and justice.
