NATO Suspects Bulgaria to be Russia's Trojan Horse - Report
"You could bet that anything we shared with Bulgaria inside NATO went straight to Moscow," the New York Times cited an unnamed senior Western European diplomat as saying.
The article, entitled "KGB-Trained Hungarian Has NATO Role" tells the story and considers the repercussions of the appointment of the new chairman of NATO's intelligence committee Sandor Laborc, who had spent six years at the K.G.B.'s academy in Moscow during the 1980s.
"The old Communist nomenklatura and secret services is still around in Romania and Bulgaria. But I must say the case of Hungary is very, very disappointing," the senior Western European diplomat told New York Times.
Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic joined the alliance in 1999, and the rest of the former Warsaw Pact countries in 2004.
"After that expansion, military attachГ©s from the Bulgarian delegation did not receive clearance to have access to a certain level of intelligence material," the article points out.

Surprise? If it wasnt for the KGB trained secret service Bulgaria would have been far ahead economically and socially. These agents are still active and their plan to control Bulgaria is going well. Just a reminder that half of the presidency is made up of ex-secert service agents not to mention the prime minster's surrounding comprised of exactly as many and the justice system flooded with them as well...Their goal is to imitate progress and perhaps get some European money since they already stole money from the citizens of BG...
