Bulgaria to the Rescue

In the initial months of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, when the Ukrainians were running low of ammunition for their Soviet artillery pieces as well as diesel fuel, it was the Bulgarians who met those supply needs. In order not to cause too many political issues, the Bulgarians quietly sold the war materiel to a third party, which then sent them into Ukraine. (And yes, it was the UK and the US that paid for them, in part because Bulgaria is not a wealthy company.)

The Russians were not fooled. They cut off natural gas to Bullgaria, whidh was made up by shipments of LNG from the US. The Russians also engaged in other fuckery, which was why the Bulgarians kicked out a boatload of Russian "diplomats".

Bravo Bulgaria for standing up against Russian aggression in the fact of Russian retaliation and their useful idiots in Bulgaria.

Let’s not forget a bravo for the UK and US managing to keep this quiet till now, impressive OpSec for something a number of people knew about.

I vaguely recall that Bulgarians were once seen as the heavy muscle enforcers of the KGB. If so, this is a turn for the a turn towards a better future for them and a commentary on the lost prestige and fear of Russian evil.

I was surprised to find out the Bulgarian's had gotten rid of Boyko Borisov.

Is Belarus next?
