“The government acts irrational in terms of modernization of the armed forces”, said in Varna the President Rumen Radev, who took part in a ceremony on the occasion of the 139th anniversary of the Navy.


“If this year the scenario is repeated again – big promises, budgeting and then blocking projects, it will be confirmed that modernization is only a pretext to set aside a budget and then to be transformed into surplus that will be spent again on unclear deals”, the head of state said.


“The importance of the Black Sea region is growing, intertwining a lot of confronting geopolitical and economic interests”, the President said. “Our military fleet has to defend our maritime sovereignty, our interests, our traditions and our self-esteem of a maritime nation”, Radev added.
