  There has been much talk recently of a return to the balance of great power interests and spheres of influence. President Trump’s transactional foreign policy is an epitome of this return to two centuries old doctrines and the paradigm of interests before principles.   President Macron has joined and suggested a restart of the geostrategic partnership with Russia, to balance off China and the US, calling for dropping sanctions and a return to business as usual. The French President seems not only to be seeking to lead post-Brexit EU but also to step in the shoes of his great predecessors De Gaulle and Napolean. He has managed to veto opening up accession talks with Albania and North Macedonia, disregarding prevailing EU common ground.   Paris is engaging in the

Revithoussa LNG

  Last week the Bulgarian PM inspected work progress at the Interconnector Greece-Bulgaria, noting that it is a landmark project for energy security in the region. Two days later, he flew to Thessaloniki to meet the Greek PM and the US ambassador to Greece, repeating praise for Greek-Bulgarian cooperation in the energy field and commitment to buy more LNG.   DEPA, Kolmar, and the Bulgarian company Energiko have managed to import partial or fully LNG sourced gas into Bulgaria via the Greek terminal at Revithoussa. Due to outdated regulatory practice and lack of liberalization of the gas market, the margins between the “buy” and “sell” prices have been collected by the traders, including Bulgargas. Lower international prices of gas have failed to reflect into a proportionate decrease in gas prices

karta S-4001

  Shortly after the October 20th visit of the head of Russia’s Civil Intelligence Sergey Naryshkin, an S-400 division and Panzer rocket-artillery system arrived in Serbia. They are supposed to take part in the second part of the joint military drills ‘Slavic shield – 2019’ that will span October 23-29th. The news generated fresh concerns about a possible permanent deployment of the S-400, leading to widespread geopolitical repercussions.   More than 200 Serbian military experts were flown to Russia two months ago to take part in the first leg of the ‘Slavic Shield-2019’ military drills in the region of Astrakhan, which included training and live-fire tests with S-400.   This summer, NATO-member Romania banned the river transport of Russian armored vehicles to Serbia. Russia then flew them over NATO member

  The shutdown of  Bulgarian National Radio’s broadcasting and the following debate are a diagnosis of the Bulgarian society. An unprecedented blow to national security, but few seem to care. We get used to all the “unthinkable” scandals and wait for the next one to die down.   Prosecutor General Tsatsarov has routinely instructed the SANS, CEM and the prosecutor’s office to find a plausible explanation in ‘three’ days, finding a minor player to take the “culprit”’s role and cover up the true perpetrators. The job is simple – omit at all cost the name of the real boss at the NURTS – National Radio and Television Stations Department – Delyan Peevski (nominally in the Vivacom group controlled by the VTB) in the newsfeed and the comments. The same applies

  “Incompetence is fascism.” L. Levchev   “Illiterates have to dictate.” Stanislaw Jerzy Lec   The election of the Prosecutor General of Bulgaria at present is comparable to the election of a Procurator of the Roman province of Judea. However, Bulgaria is not Judea, and the Third Rome /Moscow/ is not Rome at all, but a political rebranding of the medieval Golden Horde. Still, the parallels are unavoidable.   The current Chief Procurator, pardon me – Prosecutor, the former Provincial Judge Tsatsarov, like the real Pontius Pilate washed his hands with the proposed candidature of his own creation Ivan Geshev; someone who obtained his degree in law at the Police school. And the latter did not waste any time before stunning the general public with his interview on the so-called
