Bulgaria: Bulgarian Nationalists Seek Parliament Sitting on Crimea Referendum Ataka leader Volen Siderov, photo by BGNES

Volen Siderov, leader of nationalist party Ataka, has demanded an extraordinary parliamentary sitting on Monday on the situation in Ukraine and the Crimea secession referendum.

In a Sunday statement, Siderov called on Parliament Speaker Mihail Mikov to summon an extraordinary sitting during which the declarations of the parliamentary groups on the matter would be reviewed.

The nationalist leader demanded maximum transparency of the discussion and live coverage of the debates via the Bulgarian National Television and the Bulgarian National Radio, stressing that the people had to see for themselves the stance of each party.

Siderov yet again noted that Ataka was adamant in its insistence on Bulgaria's neutrality on the conflict in Ukraine, adding that the party would recognize the outcome of the referendum in Crimea as legitimate.

He insisted that the intervention of the US in the domestic affairs of Ukraine had to be condemned.

The leader of nationalist party Ataka argued that it was Bulgaria's Parliament and not the Foreign Minister which had to come up with a stance which reflected the interests of Bulgarians in Ukraine and Bulgaria's national interests.

There are no Romanians in Dobruja and no "Macedonians" in Blagoevgradsko. There are more Turks in both those territories than Ro or "Macedonians".
You really like Muslim Turkish kokk up your Romanian anti-Bg as, don't you? Bent over 'cause the Turks, your former masters, will give you Southern Dobruja if you let them fukk you 100 or 1000 times.

Yes debate this in Parliament and vote on it.

It would be fantastic if the Bulgarian Parliament voted in favour of the result of the Crimean Referendum.

Maybe other countries would follow Bulgarias lead.

Oh yes, they should really discuss in parliament how to deal with the upcoming referendums in the Turkish, Romanian and Macedonian populated areas in Bulgaria. The Ataka experts for monitoring could provide valuable technical assistance in organizing the return of Pirin Macedonia, Dobruja, Rhodopi, Shumen, Razgrad and Targovishte regions to their mother countries to which they belong according to the wish of the people in these regions. They could also discuss details regarding the stationing of the Macedonian, Romanian and Turkish army on Bulgarian territory, since they will be needed to protect their citizens from the Bulgarian fascist mob that is in power in Sofia.
