The Ambassador of Ukraine to Bulgaria Mykola Baltazhi demands the investigation of the provocation during the celebration dedicated to the 140 anniversary of the Battle of Shipka Pass. The press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine reported this.
‘I am deeply worried and indignant at the flag of the terrorist and criminal Donetsk People’s Republic at Shipka.

I insist on the investigation of this dirty provocation by the Bulgarian authorities’, Baltazhi noted.
