Jun 6, 2023

Bulgaria's newly appointed Defense Minister Todor Tagarev said he supports military assistance to Ukraine amid its counteroffensive against Russian forces.

Tagarev's words were quoted by the BTA news agency.

Outlining the priorities of the Bulgarian Defense Ministry, the new minister specifically mentioned security in the Black Sea region and Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine.


"We will have security when the last occupier leaves the border of Ukraine and the Kremlin's aggressive intentions are blocked. This is the only way to guarantee our region and our future," Tagarev said.

"We must do everything necessary both to strengthen our defense capabilities and to assist Ukraine so that it can continue the counteroffensive that it has obviously launched and liberate its territories. We have to do this within the framework of the decisions of the (European - ed.) Union and the decisions of the National Assembly," he emphasized.
