MOSCOW, February 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia expresses deep outrage over a march to honor a World War II general known for his anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi activities organized in the center of Bulgaria’s capital, Sofia, on February 15, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Alexander Lukashevich told a news conference on Thursday.
“According to the existing information, this march brought together around 200 participants,” he said. “Unfortunately, such marches have been held in the Bulgarian capital practically every year. We hope that Bulgaria’s official authorities have in a proper manner qualified this neo-Nazi rally and will take necessary measures to exert pressure on its organizers and prevent in the future such marches, which honor the ideology of fascism and racial intolerance.”
Protesters praised General Hristo Lukov, who had supported Germany during WWII and was killed by an anti-fascist resistance movement in 1943.
