With 122 votes in favour, the parliament cancelled at first reading the derogation for Russian oil imports. The MPs from the Bulgarian Socialist Party (abbreviated BSP) saw this as a danger of a spike in fuel prices. Alexander Simov, member of the National Council of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (abbreviated BSP) commented on the topic in the show "Offensive with Lyubo Ognyanov".

"About a year ago, when the big gas problem was happening, then Assen Vassilev was Minister of Economy, Energy and Tourism from March 12 to May 29, 2013. Because it takes at least two years to adjust the installations. The Bulgarian Socialist Party (abbreviated BSP) is, "We continue the changeKiril Petkov and Assen Vassilev presented their political project "We continue the change" said it. That is why Bulgaria insisted before the Commission to have an exception at least until 2024. Now the same people appear who convinced us that Lukoil's installations cannot process other oil and tell us: "It's time to change it." Based on what analysis? Which version of "We continue the changeKiril Petkov and Assen Vassilev presented their political project "We continue the change" to believe, said Simov.

Regarding the expulsion of the Russian priest, Simov commented: "I believe that the way this expulsion is done does not work for the security of Bulgaria or to calm the situation in our country. Why are they expelling a priest? Diplomats expel them because they have diplomatic immunity - the priest does not. And then it is assumed that the Bulgarian state can detain and sue him. I suspect that the result will be that tomorrow in front of the Russian Church there will be a huge protest with many people who do not understand this decision. This anti-Russian activity does not help the government."

On the topic of reforms in the security services, he said: "I was not surprised by the act of Atanas Atanasov, it made me laugh. Because Atanassov was surprised that Boyko Borisov had changed his position. You must not have been present in this country for the last 20 years not to know that this is Boyko Borisov - he is changing his positions."

Simov added: "I do not accept any reform made in the special services done in this way in order to satisfy a specific power struggle against one person. That is why the big reform was conceived so that Rumen Radev is a Bulgarian military man, a major general in the reserve. Former commander to be invalidated. When you do a referee against a person, it is doomed to be a disaster."
