Many times what happened 25 years ago went through my head. These were three events that largely determined the fate of Bulgaria today: the resolution of the political crisis on February 4, when the BSP mandate was refused, the application for NATO membership and the introduction of the Currency Board. This request was made by Petar Stoyanov, President of Bulgaria (1997-2001), BGNES reported.
Today, President Stoyanov turns 70, and this year marks the 25th anniversary of his inauguration as president. “When all the news starts today with what a severe crisis we are in, I want to remind you that 25 years ago was the hardest time in our recent history. After we managed to overcome the severity of the difficulties, I am convinced that we will overcome and the next story we didn’t have money to pay for our wheat and Bulgaria was left without bread “, said Stoyanov.

He stressed that “Bulgaria is moving forward and upwards”, despite the fact that there are still people in our country who bear the burden of the transition. “But going up, we have to deal with the attention of the people who are the least protected,” Stoyanov said, adding that this is the society that politicians of his generation aspire to.

Hundreds of political representatives, representatives of the Bulgarian cultural and elite, gather at the Boyana residence to congratulate Stoyanov on his double jubilee. Among them are Bogdana Karadocheva, Tsvetana Maneva, Georgi Konstantinov, Rumen Leonidov, Krasen Stanchev, Mihail Nedelchev, Ognyan Minrichev, Kiril, Kiril Filip Dimitrov, Stefan Sofianski, Teddy Moskov, Prof. Angel Dimitrov and many others.
