The Russian press joins Saturday around the idea that Bulgaria, a traditionally faithful and reliable ally of Moscow, had delivered a heavy blow to the Federation’s economic interests in the Balkans.

More's the pity! With "friends" like Turkey and Russia, Bulgaria doesn't need any enemies. Anyway, it doesn't matter who your neighbors are, it matters what clubs you belong to.
