Bulgaria celebrates its National Holiday

Bulgaria celebrates today, 3 March, its National Holiday – the 141st anniversary of its liberation from five centuries Ottoman Rule. After the end of the 1877-1878 Russo-Turkish liberation war, in 1878 on 3 March was signed the San Stefano Peace Treaty.

The National Holiday will be marked with a rich programme of solemn events across the country. At the Patriarchal Cathedral St. Alexander Nevsky, the National Day will be revered with a Holy Liturgy and Bulgarian Patriarch Neofit will hold a prayer service.

At 11.00 am President Rumen Radev will take part in the official ceremony of raising the national flag before the Monument of the Unknown Soldier in Sofia. From 18.30 in the Narodno Sabranie square will start evening military gala. The head of state will greet the representative units of the Bulgarian Army and afterwards will deliver a speech.
Traditionally, there will be an official ceremony on the Shipka peak, near the Monument of Freedom, raised in memory of the Russian soldiers and the Bulgarian volunteers lost heroically their lives in the battle for the liberation of the country.

Many museums in Sofia and other towns throughout the country will receive visitors without charging for admission.

    Practice makes perfect the oligarchs' propaganda against Delyan Peevski

    For some people, practice makes perfect the knowledge. For oligarch-publishers like Ivo Prokopiev, it makes perfect the propaganda. No, not only because of Goebbels' postulate of how a lie can be turned into truth with a hundred repetitions.

    Oligarchy puts its most well-tested weapon to use

    Indicted oligarchs and their political GMO projects trying to ride the wave of protests have put their most well-tested weapon to use – fake news. The puppets Hristo Ivanov, Radan Kanev, Maya Manolova, Kostadin Kostadinov (aka Kostya Kopeckin), Ivo Mirchev and other comrades who like to pocket rubles have activated their trolling network and are now spewing fake news every half hour. The goal is to stoke the flames of public discontent to the point where regular people will not have the chance to ask who is actually on the front lines of the ongoing protests against the state.
