Bulgarian President Defends Himself Against PM Accusations

“Unlike some people, I don’t have bosses, neither in Bulgaria nor abroad. Of course, I only have one boss, that is the Bulgarian nation, who chose me and I swore to serve.” Those were the words of Bulgaria’s President Rumen Radev in response to the Bulgarian Prime Minister’s accusations that Radev was serving his “boss Kornelia Ninova” from the Bulgarian Socialist Party.

Radev defended his rhetoric against the government, claiming it's not aimed at GERB in particular, but at “the place where decisions are being made and funds are being distributed. If the opposition starts doing this, I’ll start criticizing them.”

When asked about the resurrected Belene NPP project, Russia’s involvement in it, and whether he discussed it with Vladimir Putin during his recent visit to the Russian Federation, Radev stated that the power plant cannot be built without cooperation with Russia. He also said that the topic was indeed discussed during the visit. The President welcomes the lifting of the moratorium of the Belene NPP, claiming it can end up being a good financial opportunity for Bulgaria.
