Bulgaria stands in solidarity with Ukraine and supports its actions to oppose Russian military aggression, including by providing military assistance
The Russian army is committing systematic war crimes in Ukraine, a Bulgarian Defence Ministry report says. The document identifies Russian military aggression as the most immediate threat to global peace.
“The unjustified war in Ukraine, which was started in complete violation of international law, caused damage of particularly large proportions to all spheres of social and economic life. The Russian armed forces committed systematic war crimes. This full-scale armed conflict has a significant impact not only on Ukraine and the region but in a global aspect,” the Bulgarian Defence Ministry wrote, Euroactiv reports.
According to the document, the war led to the expansion of Russian hybrid sabotage against NATO and EU countries.
“Bulgaria was also subject to systemic Russian hybrid impacts, including through unilateral interruption of gas supplies, to influence sovereign national strategic decision-making,” it added.
Support for Ukraine is embedded in the official document, stating that Bulgaria stands in solidarity with Ukraine and supports its legitimate efforts and actions to oppose Russian military aggression.
