Sofia – Bulgarian coalition partners “We Continue the Change” and Democratic Bulgaria on Monday jointly condemned the pro-Russian party Revival for promoting violence, homophobia and “misanthropic propaganda”, with the most recent case being the targeting a politician of Jewish origin, Solomon Passy.
Earlier, acting on an alert from the Shalom association of Jews in Bulgaria, the Prosecution announced that it will investigate Revival for a Nazi-themed image published on the party’s official Telegram channel.
The image is of the face of Solomon Passy, former MP and founder of the Atlantic Club of Bulgaria, pasted on the figure of a prisoner in concentration camp garb being taken away by Nazi soldiers, presumably to be gassed.
The words underneath read: “If you don’t want gas from Russia, come to us and we’ll let you breathe some gas”.
Passy has been critical of pro-Kremlin propaganda in Bulgaria and of Revival.
