Five members of Bulgaria's ultranationalist Ataka party will travel to Crimea as monitors of Sunday's referendum for the autonomous province's future.

The leader of the party, Volen Siderov believes the new leadership in Kiev is illegitimate, and the result of a coup carried out by extremists, terrorists, and pro-fascist organizations, the daily 24Chasa reports.

The referendum in Crimea, a majority ethnic Russian region of Ukraine, will take place on Sunday, with the West proclaiming it unconstitutional.

According to the Bulgarian nationalist leader, if the West recognized Kosovo, it must do the same with Crimea.

And how in the world do you think it's possible to invade a country whom is full member of EU and NATO? Ukraine isn't, and their government is ruled by illegal thugs whom discriminates Russians.

In Bulgaria the minorities aren't persecuted or threatened every single day.

according to the Bulgarian constitution, ethnic parties are banned in Bulgaria.

So please, Turkey, Romania, Macedonia, send your armies and protect your citizens. A referendum can be easily organized within a few days with the assistance of the well-trained ATAKA "specialists".

The remaining small rest of Bulgaria should be quickly kicked out of the EU and the toughest possible visa procedures against this nation of pickpockets and prostitutes should be established by the EU and the rest of the world.

Soon, I hope!

The situation is different, Bulgaria has a democratic government and the ethnic turks party is part of that government.

These dunderheads can already train and gain valuable experiences when they will monitor the Rhodopi and Eastern Roumelia referendum (after the Turkish army has sent a huge expedition force to the regions of Kardjali, Shumen, Razgrad, Targovishte to protect their citizens), and the Southern Dobruja referendum (after the Romanian army has sent a huge expedition force to the region of Dobrich to protect their citizens), and the Pirin Makedonia referendum (after the Macedonian army has sent a huge expedition force to the region of Blagoevgrad to protect their citizens).

Soon, I hope!

I'm surprised, I heavily didn't like the actions of Ataka in the beginning but seems it's finally turning around. Although most likely they're trying to restore their image after all their scandals... But still, good work! ))

Good! At least there will be people from EU to tell the true story, not just story- making Western journalists.

I despise ataka for being sellouts to the reds n turks, but he is correct here, for once.

West are hypocrites!

Excellent work again Ataka, you are Bulgarias smallest party in Parliament and you punch well above your weight.
