VMRO Bulgaria Denies DPS's Accusations of Involvement in Lukovmarsh

With the coming of this year’s annual Lukovmarsh, the debate surrounding the controversial event started again. VMRO, a party often accused of supporting and even organizing the Lukovmarsh, claimed they “never organized events aimed at racial hatred, antisemitism, and things along that line.”

According to DPS, VMRO has supported the march. According to VMRO on the other hand, that’s “just another speculation of an anti-Bulgarian party.”

Lukovmarsh is an event commemorating General Hristo Nikolov Lukov, a Bulgarian officer, politician, and the leader of the controversial Union of Bulgarian National Legions, a pro-fascist organization. Lukov was murdered 1943 by agents of the Bulgarian Communist Party, which was then an illegal terrorist organization.

Ever since 2003, each February, a Lukovmarsh is organized. Most of the participants are radical nationalists. Naturally, the march causes controversy due to its participants and organizers. Hristo Lukov was an active political figure during Bulgaria’s alliance with Nazi Germany. Naturally, his death at the hands of communists made him a martyr for the Bulgarian ultranationalists and neo-Nazis.
