President Radev, Economy Minister Ninova in dispute over the export of weapons

The allegations of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Industry Kornelia Ninova regarding contracts concluded by the caretaker government for the export of Bulgarian weapons are incorrect and easily verifiable. This was stated to journalists by President Rumen Radev on the occasion of Kornelia Ninova's statement on BTV yesterday that Bulgaria had not exported weapons to Ukraine for years.

The President reminded that these were not contracts for arms exports, as Bulgaria does not export weapons as a state, but relate to private companies. According to Radev, the signature in the Interdepartmental Commission for Export Control and Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction, chaired by Minister Ninova and authorizing the export of weapons, is what matters.

Today, Minister Ninova laid a wreath at the Monument to the Unknown Soldier in Sofia. "Today we bow our heads to the thousands of people who gave their lives in the fight against Hitlerism and Fascism. Their feat made today's Europe possible. Let us be grateful to the heroes and build a united and strong Europe," Ninova urged. /BGNES
