Bulgarians join global protests against Russian invasion of Crimea

Bulgarian capital city Sofia saw a succession of three days of protests outside the Russian embassy against Moscow’s military invasion of Crimea in Ukraine.

The protest was similar to those held outside Russian diplomatic offices in recent days elsewhere in the region, from Prague to Ankara, Nicosia to Tbilisi, and further afield in London, Washington DC, Toronto, Wellington New Zealand and Sydney.

In Bulgaria, the protests were organised by people linked to the continuing anti-government protest groups DANSwithme and the Early Rising Students.

From March 1 to 3, groups of a few dozen people joined the protest outside the Russian embassy in Sofia against Moscow’s policies towards Kyiv.
