Minister of Defense: The bulk of Bulgarian defense industry production goes to Ukraine

Bulgaria's Defense Ministry says that the military-industrial complex is working on defense aid for Ukraine

Bulgaria's military-industrial complex operates 24 hours 7 days a week, and the bulk of production goes to Ukraine. Weapons and ammunition are transferred directly or through third parties.

This was stated by Todor Tagarev, Minister of Defense of Bulgaria, in an interview with Voice of America on Monday, January 15. According to him, the list of Bulgarian military aid to Ukraine includes old Soviet-era systems and ammunition, which, however, are in good working order.

The Ukrainian military knows how to use such systems without needing additional training.

"But the most important thing is the production of ammunition, small arms and light weapons in Bulgaria. This is the area of production in which Bulgaria specialized back in Soviet times, and this specialization is still there. Thus, the defense industry operates almost 24/7, and most of the production goes to Ukraine," Tagarev said.

According to the minister, Sofia will continue to produce Soviet-standard shells and plans to launch additional production facilities for NATO-standard 155- and 105-millimeter ammunition.

Tagarev also noted that Bulgaria provides Ukraine with political, diplomatic and humanitarian support. He is confident that with constant military, political, and financial assistance from its allies, Ukraine is able to defeat Moscow.

In his opinion, providing the Ukrainian army with combat aircraft to reduce Russia's air superiority can play a major role in achieving this goal.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, Tagarev believes that the teaching of history in Bulgarian schools should be cleared of facts that distort the role of Russia in the country's past. In addition, he believes that not only state media but also social networks should be monitored for Russian propaganda.
