Malofeev’s “Bivol” waves red flag at Delyan PeevskiMonitor News Agency , Sofia
Among the mongrels there is a breed called “street superior” used to sponge and spend the money picked from the pockets of other people. It’s a public secret that one may come across the species of this breed anywhere across the world but it appears that in Bulgaria their concentration is the highest.
You will know them easily – they mushroom in the media outlets and TV programmes which allegedly have something in common with journalism but actually only mar the guild’s reputation and use journalism as a cover-up for their propaganda and propelling to the fore foreign interests. And we are well aware whose are these interests – of the oligarchic clique headed by the indicted oligarchs, such as Ivo Prokopiev and fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev. We also know who sustains them – they are sustained with our money stolen by these same crime bosses.
These same bosses and their paid (again with our money) spokespersons on call for decades now have been polluting the media environment in Bulgaria. That is why it is no wonder that they keep on doing that in times of the unprecedented crisis when all efforts of the state and all of us are focused on only one goal – the fight against Covid-19. And while some people, such as lawmaker and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski, the main target of their propaganda, are making donations, the others mongrels of the “street superior” breed are only barking at them with unmistakable Russian accent.
It is the Russian accent which is characteristic of the ugly image of the abovementioned pseudo-journalism – namely bivol.bg of Atanas Chobanov. The “smart aleck” connected with the Kremlin by family ties now waves the red flag and talks big before empty stands. In these critical times a self-appointed journalist whose site for a long time now has been playing the role of a mailbox, is tirelessly touring cable TVs of dubious reputation, e.g. Eurocom, to seek self-promotion and mar the reputation of people who in contrast to himself do their best to support the fight against coronavirus contagion instead of swallowing cash for dirty commissions. Because while this lazybones and sponger is killing time and justifies the backstage financing the state makes all efforts to avoid Bulgaria’s turning into a morgue. Of course, the Eurocom assemblage of glamoured-up girls like Lyuba Kulezich who could afford expensive beauticians for the money stolen from CorpBank depositors is not particularly choosy about the guests they invite to their programmes provided the latter fulminate against those who they see a “inconvenient” persons. Everyone who was imprudent enough to accidentally click on this channel will need a cleansing treatment as soon as they see the spiteful face of Tsvetan Vassilev’s pet. Her lifted-up face betrays all the dirty money which she absorbed owing to her sponsor. And she is not alone in this TV underground which gave shelter mainly to all kinds of henchmen of the behind-the-scenes clique who dropped off from fair journalism and are now reanimated by the oligarchy.
The VIP guest of Eurocom Atanas Chobanov belongs to the same mongrel breed. The paid “bivol” can afford not only figs but also black caviar and enjoys lavish lifestyle at the expense of the foreign states. The disclosures made by the Monitor Agency showing how this brazen-faced guy is sponging on the others under Russian protection, living in company apartment while he is servicing the Kremlin propaganda machine have shaken him to the core.
This is the reason why this pseudo-partisan of truth is set to vilify the publisher of Telegraph Media in the meanest possible way. Because this is how the “bivol” understands journalism – those who expose me are the bad guys and I will revenge to the end flooding them with lies.
It is obvious that “bivol” hates the guts of the MP of the opposition Movement for Rights and Freedoms and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski who for years now has been a thorn in the side of the oligarchy because instead of sitting tight he proposes draft bills which forestall their shady affairs and publishers newspapers which are not afraid of bringing to light these affairs. Betraying his spiritual poverty the pseudo-investigative journalist Atanas Chobanov has embraced the cause of fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev and is now lobbying for him just as he did not once defending other backstage players. And this embrace was inevitable having in mind the Russian ties of them both strong as ship ropes. Starting from Chobanov’s wife, Maria Onuchko and her father Victor Onuchko this thread leads to Orthodox oligarch Konstanitin Malofeev and further on – to the Bulgarian Madoff – fugitive banker Tsvetan Vasilev. An intricate lace of links different in rank and position which is a brand of the Kremlin disinformation machine used for squaring accounts with the inconvenient persons and clearing the way for implementing the strategic goals of Moscow, as we have repeatedly wrote. And we will keep on writing about it. Because in contrast to Chobanov, facts are the only thing that is really important to us. One “bivol” will not scare us with his rubber horns even if banknotes are impaled on them.
