Bulgaria's PM Summons Security Council Over Ukraine's Crisis
Bulgaria's Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski has summoned the Security Council with the Council of Ministers Tuesday over the situation in Ukraine.
The council will discuss Bulgaria's unified stand on account of the extraordinary EU Council meeting on Thursday dedicated to the Ukrainian crisis.
Meanwhile, Bulgarian Foreign Minister Kristian Vigenin is heading for Kiev on Tuesday to discuss the safety of the Bulgarian minority in Ukraine. Apart from the capital, Vigenin will visit the Ukrainian city of Odessa, where a compact group of Bulgarians is concentrated and which is just a few hundred km away from the Crimean Peninsula and approximately 311 km from its capital, Simferopol, where tensions have been recently on the rise.
The Foreign Minister intends to make it clear that bilateral relations depend upon how the Bulgarian minority is treated.
