Bulgarian Rightists Protest Attempts to "Rob History"
The events of February 4, 1997 is the "late Prague spring" of Bulgaria, Union of Democratic Forces leader Petar Stoyanov said on the same day ten years later.
"There is nothing heroic in returning a government mandate when the people is ready to kill you with stones," he said.
Stoyanov, who was at the time President of Bulgaria, denounced claims of the socialists - reiterated by the president - that it was the quit mandate that had saved Bulgaria from civil war.
"The Bulgarian Socialist Party tries to re-write history," he warned and thanked the Bulgarian people who had instinctively known that ruling was destructive for the country.

"There is nothing heroic in returning a government mandate when the people is ready to kill you with stones"
Well, there is nothing heroic to lead such people in riots either, actually it is very easy and opportunistic. I was not in BG at that time but it seems to me that neither of the "socialists" and the "democrats" really cared about the people - the "socialists" wanted to stick to power and the "democrats" wanted to get the political power at any price, so they waited until things went really very bad, and then "heroically" showed up, just to get their part from the big fat BG stealing, as it appeared later.
How both bloody parties dare to discuss this at all and to quarrel who was more heroical??
