BSP will not have representatives in Bulgaria’s delegation to Ukraine

The Bulgarian Socialist Party will not send a representative with the delegation of Prime Minister Kiril Petkov visiting Kyiv tomorrow, the BSP Executive Bureau has decided. The party leadership justified its position by the fact that there was enough information about the situation in Ukraine and the consequences of the war.

The BSP reiterated its opposition to the idea of sending military aid "such as ammunition and deadly weapons" to Ukraine but voiced support on providing protective equipment, food, medicine and medical supplies. "We expect the decision on support for Ukraine to be taken in Sofia after consultations between coalition partners, thus closing the issue so that the government can focus on overcoming other priority issues such as inflation, low incomes, social policy," the BSP said. /BGNES
