The protests taking place in Bulgaria are falsely promising a social revolution since capitalism will be preserved, the middle class will continue to be monopolised by big business and the workers will keep being exploited.
The protesters are said to hail from the bottom layers of Bulgarian society, representing puppets of the oligarchy. The President of Bulgaria, who supports the protests, wants to carry out a coup. He does not actually offer a geopolitical reorientation to Russia and Bulgaria’s exit from the EU and NATO but instead aims at derailing Russian energy projects in the country (including the construction of the Belene nuclear power plant and Turk Stream). The ‘maidan of the street’ is an American operation, which has set its sights on driving Moscow out of the Balkans and bears significant resemblance to the US-plotted protests in Belarus. Overall, the coup – inspired by the President and supported by America, wants to bring to power neo-fascists and Russophobes.
