Embassy of Israel to Bulgaria praises cancellation of neo-Nazi Lukov March

The embassy of Israel in Bulgaria would like to express its sincere appreciation and gratitude to the Bulgarian authorities for their successful endeavours to bring about the cancellation of the infamous Lukov March, the embassy said on Twitter on February 25.

“This is of special significance this year in which Bulgaria marks eighty years to the salvation of its Jews during the Second World War, one of the most glorious chapters in its history,” the embassy said.

The embassy said that it would like to thank, first and foremost, the government of Bulgaria and especially the Minister of Interior as well as the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Prosecutor General of Bulgaria as well the mayor of Sofia, the State Agency for National Security, Bulgarian police and all other law enforcing agencies which have brought about this most successful outcome.

“The cancellation of Lukov March is indeed an expression of the strong, continuous and sustainable Bulgarian efforts to combat antisemitism, xenophobia, intolerance and hate speech,” the embassy of the State of Israel said.

“Tonight, it has become evident once again that fighting these vicious phenomena is indeed a major priority for Bulgaria,” the embassy said.

The actions of the Bulgarian authorities will no doubt also resonate far beyond its borders, the embassy of Israel said.
