FRANCE 24 sat down with Bulgaria's president-elect, Rumen Radev, in the capital Sofia. The former NATO general wants to see Bulgaria become closer to Russia. Radev would like to see the EU sanctions on Russia lifted and believes "both sides are losing" from them. At the same time, he sees the election of Donald Trump as good news: "What’s positive about Mr Trump is that he is not a slave to political prejudice, he likes dialogue", Radev told FRANCE 24's Eve Irvine.
Presented by Eve Irvine.
Produced by Isabelle Romero and Anaïs Guérard.

What really has been upsetting in Russian Federation is that Poland, Baltic states, Ukraine, Belarus are independent again. If NATO wargames in Central Europe (Poland) are in fact a provocation towards RF the only logical conclusion is that Muscovite wargames in Kaliningrad oblast or Belarus were in fact the provocation towards NATO members. So why RF provoking NATO members and why RF keep their forces on the doorsteps of NATO? It's obvious that RF want to start a war with NATO members! - at least that's how this arguments looks like if you reverse Muscovite propaganda.

From what I can see Muscovites lost control over Ukraine and gradually they are losing control over Belarus. Anyway, Poles don't have any imperial ambitions; Poland don't wanna conquer anyone by force although completly voluntary reconstruction of political union between Poles, Ukrainians, Lithuanians, Belarusians is still on the table as a counterbalance to imperial ambition of Muscovites, despite our difficult experiences with radical Ukrainian nationalists during the II WW. Poland don't want to incorporate Ukraine. Poland want to rebuild the Commonwealth in modern democratic form - Intermarium - a political union between Baltic sea and Black sea. The last thing Poles want is to incorporate Ukraine or a part of Ukraine against the will of Ukrainian people, because this would create similar situation as in Donbass with separatists and terrorist groups of radical Ukrainian nationalists. No-one in Poland wants this, so stop spreading Muscovite propaganda.

It's a shame that our president-elect considers the annexation of Crimea as not a big deal. It seems that he will be happy if Mr Putin annexes Bulgaria too.
