Defence Minister Yanev: Bulgaria has no official position on the conflict in Ukraine

Bulgaria is against the escalation of military measures before all diplomatic means have been utilized to resolve tensions along the Russian-Ukrainian border, said Bulgaria's Defense Minister Stefan Yanev in response to a question about the possibility of deploying additional NATO troops in Bulgaria.

"If necessary, caused by a change in the environment and escalation of the situation, the Ministry of Defense will propose to the Council of Ministers options for decision-making by the competent Bulgarian authorities, including the National Assembly," he said.
So far, Bulgaria has no official position on the risks arising from growing tensions on the Russian-Ukrainian border, as NATO's response options are being discussed at the military-technical level, the minister added. /BGNES
