Bulgarians chant Murderers, This is not Moscow

Bulgarians and Ukrainians chant Murderers and This is not Moscow in front of the Russian Church Saint Nicholas in Sofia. They are protesting against the visit of Metropolitan Anthony of Volokolamsk, who is acting as a foreign minister of the Moscow Patriarchate. The protesters blocked Russian ambassador Eleonora Mitrofanova in the church.

We are protesting because of the ultimate insolence of those who occupy others came to the territory of an EU and NATO member state to hold a church service for the victory of Russia. Georgi Ivanov told BGNES that this is just nonsense.

According to the protesters, Anthony of Volokolamsk should not have been allowed on Bulgarian territory. He arrived in Sofia at the invitation of Archimandrite Vassian, who is representative of the Russian patriarch, after the meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club in Kazan, where the Kremlin usually presents its policy to invited foreign guests.
