Bulgaria: Moscow Outraged with Bulgaria's Soviet Army Monument Vandalism Photo by BGNES.

Russian Foreign Ministry has expressed indignation at another case of vandalism of the Soviet Army monument in Bulgaria's capital city of Sofia.

The Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been given a letter of protest demanding "a thorough investigation of the vandal incident, indicting the perpetrators and taking the necessary measures to maintain the monument presentable," ITAR-TASS news agency reports.

On the night of 22 February the Soviet Army monument in Sofia was painted in solidarity with Ukraine.

A Ukrainian flag was drawn on the front fa?ade of the monument, with the message "Glory to Ukraine" written underneath in Ukrainian. Obscene words in reference to the Russian President Vladimir Putin were also written in graffiti.

This is the 3rd time the monument has been painted by unknown perpetrators. On a previous occasion, the act stirred outrage from the Russian Embassy in Sofia.

Behemoth, sounds like someone had a good time with klitschko ;)

And yeah Optimistic, you're right, but by prostitutes it doesn't mean they're paid... In fact, it can work in reverse... In other words, they pay their customers ))))))))

Behemoth - 3 Mar 2014 // 15:51:59

Vladimir, Optimistic, sa-sha,

ok, you like to jerk off to Vladimir "Gay-lord" P. pics - but there is no need to bother us in public with your mutual verbal masturbation.

Optimistic - 3 Mar 2014 // 15:22:56

sa-sha and vladimir I disagree with you - jordy and behemoth cannot be prostitutes no one would pay them, they couldn't even give it away.

They are just right wing low lifes that share the same stupid brain cell.

Who let them out of the mental hospital?

sa-sha - 3 Mar 2014 // 14:19:28

As for "circus picadilly" ("agent Picadilly"?): Let me not to agree with You, Vladimir......imo, Agent Picadilly-ironically
and with good sence of humour - submit his/her point of view on modern Russia and its leaders, why not? Irony is
the sure sign of brain, and the person with brain is able to analyze events and facts, isn't it the main? To analyze, Vladimir, i.e. to do something impossible for those two personages who make You laugh ;-)

Vladimir K. - 3 Mar 2014 // 13:47:41

What Jordy and Behemoth are commenting is just making me laugh. They should have picked the circus picadilly name.

Crappy west influenced idiots claiming that the US whom destroys the worlds morals, cultures of several different countries, invades the middle east for money, promotes gay rights and where only money is important is better must be a complete fool.

Yes, these two are prostitutes. Most likely the white house will hire them ))))))))))

sa-sha - 3 Mar 2014 // 12:55:01

"To compare someone like you with a prostitute would be an offence of course - for the prostitutes"---!!!--- ;-)---thanks for the fast reaction, Behemoth! No psychiatrists around yet?...Please, try to forgive me before they appear and stuff another pill in your mouth: look, I didn't know and I didn't want..... honestly.....I didn't know that You are the prostitute and thus I didn't want to offend You and Your ward's mate "Jordy". Stay and Believe, Beg!
Stay in the madhouse till full recovery, i.e. for ever, and Believe that another prostitute, "Jordy", will never leave You. Amen!

jordy - 3 Mar 2014 // 12:00:42

Don't mind this cretin Sa-sha, he is one of Put(kov)in's cronies. We don't mind him, he is well known russki provocateur, waisting his time on a Bulgarian web forum. Sasha piss off go and sing your glorious leader, this kimono-wearing, horse-riding little vagabond, the comrade, KGB colonel LiliPutkin.

Behemoth - 3 Mar 2014 // 11:57:11

Nice try sa-sha, but your comments are really not worth it that I answer them in the future.

I am just wondering if they pay you per comment or if you get a lump sum (probably a very small amount considering the "quality" - the lack of it that is - of your rants). To compare someone like you with a prostitute would be an offence of course - for the prostitutes.

sa-sha - 3 Mar 2014 // 11:24:34

"Now look at "New Russia", a country so obviously in decay. It pays imbeciles like sa-sha "----;-)---the text which clearly proves that the madhouse patient "Behemoth" remains in the extremely critical condition and all efforts of the best psychiatrists to treat his serious mental disorder are unsuccessful.

Behemoth - 3 Mar 2014 // 08:12:01

When I look at the quality of the postings of the "pro-Russian" (or should I better say "pro-Putin") faction in this thread, I start to get a bit nostalgic about the Soviet Union.

As much as I hated their inhumane totalitarian system, you had to give it to them that they had remarkable propagandists and "fellow travelers" that would sing the praise of this system in an impressive and sometimes even intellectually interesting way.

Now look at "New Russia", a country so obviously in decay. It pays imbeciles like sa-sha and dunderheads like Pick-a-dildo (to mention only two of them) for rants in a public forum that sound like a mentally challenged six-year old kid under strong medication has written them. Obviously that's the best the Department of "Information" in Moscow can procure and/or afford. Poor Russia!

jordy - 3 Mar 2014 // 03:43:57

Yeah right, I bet they were hired by the west, the majority of Ukrainians are hired by the west to trouble the poor good mannered russki, the same way the polish, Hungarian and Czechoslovakian peoples were hired in the 50s and 60s.Your empire is a clay giant when kicked harder it will collapse. I can't wait to see it gone forever, then your people will became normal and can start dealing with us as equals. Till then fuck off Bulgaria. We don't want you. Piss off russki.

Vladimir K. - 3 Mar 2014 // 03:13:36

You really are more stupid than I thought, the thugs from the "Maidan" are forces hired by the west seeking to destabilize Ukraine in order to get closer to Russia. The current government is illegitimate and Rusia is right to do something about it. And on top of that, population in Crimea more than half are Russians.

I suggest you to stay out of politics and go back to kindergarten, might do you some good.

jordy - 3 Mar 2014 // 02:33:04

Idiot, talking crap about invasions. We all know who invaded the sovereign and brave nation of Ukraine. They will kick your backwards asses to the gates of hell. Hopefully they'll butcher great number of russkie and give you a lesson in humility the way the brave Finns did it in the late 30s.

Vladimir K. - 3 Mar 2014 // 02:16:57

Nah, it ain't.Bulgarians are clearly unable to run a country on their own. Ottoman, later Soviet Union and now EU. So just dream on... This country will most likely by invaded soon by who knows who this time.

jordy - 3 Mar 2014 // 01:23:58
