Expected move by Russia at a deliberately chosen moment. This is how analysts describe Russia’s demands for NATO forces to withdraw from Bulgaria and Romania.
The Kremlin has reached the limit of its patience, says journalist and longtime correspondent in Russia Valery Todorov.
“Lavrov was quite sharp. He said that patience is over. Patience is over and they will not wait for legal agreements to be reached tonight,” he said.
However, our longtime ambassador to the United States Elena Poptodorova sees no news in the warning.
“This is more of a detailed reading of the ultimatum that Putin has already issued during the calendar year,” she said.
According to the diplomat, the moment is not the case, and the Kremlin is feeling the ground.
“The president has just been sworn in. We have a new government, a meeting between the Bulgarian and the Macedonian prime minister has just taken place, which is not in the Kremlin’s interest. Bulgaria has been tested, as the state will respond to Putin’s direct threat.” , specified Poptodorova.
And Bulgaria as a country near the hot spot between Russia and NATO – Ukraine, must be aware of what awaits us.
“Bulgaria is becoming such a conflict as a frontline state. We have no forces to attack either by sea or by air,” Todorov said.
Analysts also warn of the relocation of military correspondents from Iraq and Afghanistan to Eastern Europe.
“This policy of maintaining the upper limits of the post-Soviet space is very risky, especially because there are enough hotheads in Russia itself who may at some point decide that patience is the limit. This is a dangerous line of escalation, “the journalist commented.
“In fact, Putin’s goal is to shake up the world order on the basis of two world wars and the Student War,” Poptodorova said.
