In connection with the speculations and attempts to involve the name of Bulgaria in the explosion of the Crimean bridge, an inspection was carried out by the security services on the order of the Prime Minister.

It has been established beyond doubt that the truck that blew up on the Crimean bridge was never on the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria, which was indicated as the starting point for its route from Russian officials, the government press service reported.

According to Russian media, the truck that exploded on October 8, 2022 was transporting polyethylene film. The inspection of the Bulgarian services also established that goods with similar characteristics were introduced into the territory of Bulgaria from another EU member state in a container with duly formed documents under the transit regime.

During the stay of the goods in question in Bulgaria, they were under customs supervision and left the country in the same container through the port of Burgas on September 17, 2022, in the direction of a country other than Russia.

The inspection makes it absolutely clear that the container with which the goods left Bulgaria was not on the exploded truck.

All information on the case has been provided to the prosecutor's office.

The Government of the Republic of Bulgaria will in no way allow the name of our country to be associated with any involvement in terrorist activity.
