Bulgaria's priority in Romania is to preserve the memory of the Bulgarians and to find every opportunity to bring historical memory to the fore, Bulgaria's Ambassador to Romania Radko Vlaykov said here on Tuesday. He attended the 155th anniversary of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) in Braila. The ceremony took place in the Church of the Ascension of Christ, known as the Bulgarian Church.

On the way to Odesa, the Bulgarian delegation stopped in Braila to commemorate the 155th anniversary of the founding in the city of the oldest institution of modern Bulgaria - the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, established under the name of the Bulgarian Literary Society in 1869, even before Bulgaria's liberation from Ottoman rule, in a house on the site where the Church of the Ascension of Christ was built, which Bulgarian Academy of Sciences President Acad. Julian Revalski described as significant.

The Ambassador said he was grateful to the Romanian people for the reception they gave to the Bulgarians in the middle of the 19th century. To be able to live, to prepare the revolutionary movement of Bulgaria and, above all, to prepare the future of the Bulgarian state, he said. In his words, the great Bulgarians in that period did not only think how to liberate Bulgaria, but how to make it function.

"One of the priorities in our work this year is to celebrate the 155th anniversary of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and today we are launching a symbolic beginning of a series of events that will be held to show in the most convincing way that in these 155 years the oldest Bulgarian institution has always been at the level of the needs of the Bulgarian people," the Ambassador explained. The Romanian Academy of Sciences will also take part in these initiatives, Radko Vlaykov added.

The Bulgarian delegation includes BTA Director General Kiril Valchev, BTA Deputy Director General Evgenia Drumeva, Bulgarian National Radio Director General Milen Mitev, head of the Council for Electronic Media Gabriela Naplatanova, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences President Acad. Julian Revalski, Rector of Sofia University Prof. Georgi Valchev, as well as representatives of Bulgarian media and Bulgarian-language media from different countries around the world.

BTA organizes the 19th World Meeting of Bulgarian Media in Odesa, Bolgrad and Izmail (Ukraine) from June 18 until June 21, 2024 with the assistance of Aurubis Bulgaria, A1 Bularia, Glavbolgarstroy Holding, Euroins Insurance Group, SOF Connect - the operator of Sofia Airport, 13 Centuries Bulgaria National Endowment Fund.
