BSP for Bulgaria will demand that from now on all aid provided to Ukraine be approved by the National Assembly get disclosed to the Bulgarian people, BSP floor leader Korneliya Ninova told reporters in parliament on Friday. She specified that next week her party will table such a draft bill.

Ninova spoke about the proposal submitted by the caretaker cabinet that the Council of Ministers should decide on its own what aid to provide and to keep this information classified. She noted that her party is against providing military aid to Ukraine, saying: "We believe that this prolongs the conflict, and a peaceful solution should be sought through a cessation of hostilities on both sides and through diplomatic negotiations".

Ninova said that if Defence Minister Todor Tagarev complied with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's requests, that would deprive Bulgaria of its combat capabilities. Ninova's party continues to demand Tagarev's resignation.
