Danail Kirilov: Publication owned by a natural gas oligarch stirred up a monitoring machinationMonitor News Agency , Sofia
“I am not going to resign because of a machination regarding the EC monitoring that was stirred up by a publication of a natural gas oligarch,” Minister of Justice Danail Kirilov told the Bulgarian National Television.
He was referring to the false rumour floated by Sasho Donchev’s daily newspaper Sega and further spread by Ivo Prokopiev’s mainstream media machine that according to a European Commission report the monitoring mechanism for Bulgaria will not be lifted after all. As it turned out, there was no such report, and Brussels was forced to refute the latest fake news item the oligarchy had concocted to attack the Bulgarian state.
Kirilov stressed that in this particular machination the Capital circle had committed a disgrace.
