Bulgarian head of state Rosen Plevneliev sent a telegram of condolence to the acting president of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov over the victims of clashes in Odessa, Saturday.

"I strongly condemn any act of violence that threatens peace and leads to acts of brutality and casualties," President Plevneliev stated in the telegram, the President’s press center reported.

"On my behalf and on behalf of the Bulgarian people, please accept our deepest condolences for the dozens of citizens who died during the tragic events in Odessa. I would like to assure you of my deep sympathy with the grief of the relatives of the victims and the people of Ukraine. I'm sure a tragedy of this magnitude is a heavy blow to every nation and every society," President Plevneliev stated and wished a quick recovery to the injured in the clashes.

He called on the parties involved in the conflict to refrain from provocations and work for the restoration of law and order in the name of peace and security of citizens both in Odessa and in the country.

"I would like to take this opportunity to again express my solidarity with the Ukrainian society and I believe that the people of Ukraine will choose the path of development throughfair and democratic elections," President Rosen Plevneliev stated.

At least 46 people were killed and hundreds were injured during severe clashes between pro-Russian activists and Maidan supporters followed by a fire in an administrative building in the Ukrainian city of Odessa, Friday.

independent, get off those drugs and go back to your own country and face reality. Eurotrash such as yourself are not welcomed here.

Btw south-western Ukraine and Odessa has lots of Bulgarians, does Plevniev even CARE that some of them might have been killed by the Maidan fascist mobs?

Yane - 4 May 2014 // 11:58:59

Plevniev is a dirty lapdog, he avoids laying blame on the people that set the building on fire and tlhose who support them (Kiev). Plevniev, you do NOT represent Bulgarians, you are just a slut obeying your western masters, you are a complete disgrace, you would sell out the country to Turkey if Washington told you to and you would somehow try to justify it.

"Russian reactionaries"!?----To call people, the entire people of the South-Eastern Ukraine, "Russian reactionaries"!? It's what happens if the eyes are on the arse..... independent" or not, it doesn't matter, a*se remains a*se.

I see the three stooges are at it again, dumb dumber and dumbest. The country belongs to Ukraine and it's people, not Russian reactionaries, agent provocateurs and fascists!!!!

President Plevneliev you should not do this.

The illegal government in Kiev and their right sector supporters are responsible for these deaths.

You should be asking for the illegal government in Kiev to be put on trial for war crimes.
