Disinfo: The America for Bulgaria Foundation, George Soros and other NGOs...

Summary

The America for Bulgaria Foundation, George Soros and other NGOs are organizing a Maidan against the president elect Radev in Bulgaria. Bulgarians under 40 years are recruited and paid 30 euros each to participate in the uprising.

Disproof

No evidence given, the article refers to "unofficial sources" and rumors on blogs to support its claims (using a common tactic when spreading disinformation-referring back to the fact that information has been reported before, without mentioning what kind of source has reported it). The claim that America for Bulgaria will be more active in supporting democracy is presented as a suspicious thing, whereas it is perfectly normal to support democracy.
