"So far, there are no official comments on the death of Alexei Navalny Aleksey Anatolyevich Navalny (in Russian: Алексей Анатолиевич Навальный) - neither what happened nor why, so we cannot comment. We can say that everything that has happened so far, is just cheap speculation on the matter."

This was stated by the ambassador of the Russian Federation in Bulgaria, H.E.

Eleonora Mitrofanova.

According to her, Navalny was heavily guarded.

"We have absolutely no interest in his death," Mitrofanova is categorical.

Regarding the accusations made by the wife of the Russian opposition leader - Yulia Navalnaya, who in a video message directly blamed President Vladimir Putin for the death of Alexei Navalny Aleksey Anatolyevich Navalny (in Russian: Алексей Анатольевич Навальный), Mitrofanova stated that Navalny was a CIA agent, as well as his wife. 

Alexei Navalny is dead

"If you noticed, 10 minutes after his death, she already accused our president of having killed Navalny. You understand that this cannot be done when there is no data," she stressed, quoted by Dnes.

Mitrofanova also noted that it is very sad that the agreement between Bulgaria and Russia on the protection of mutual monuments of culture and history is not respected.

This morning, citizens protested in front of the Metropolitan Municipality because of the permission given by the mayor Vasil Terziev to the Russian Embassy to officially celebrate the Day of the Soviet Army today at the "Monument-Kostnitsa" in the municipality.


The dissatisfied chanted "Out of Russia from Bulgaria", "Out of Mitrofanova and Russian agents from Bulgaria", "Russia is an evil empire".

Earlier this morning, councilors from the PP-DB-Save Sofia also issued a statement and called on Mayor Vasil Terziev "to impose a ban on this triumph of death, called the celebration of the "Day of the Defenders of the Fatherland" or the Day of the Soviet Army".

Since the beginning of Russia's war in Ukraine, Moscow has defined Bulgaria as an "enemy state".
