  • In resignation, Petkov’s cabinet completed two important cases for which, while in power, it did not have the strength - untied the knot surrounding the Bulgarian veto on Macedonia's European membership and expelled 70 Russian diplomats.
  • After the vote of no confidence, the door to another early election is wide open.
  • Russia's ambassador to Bulgaria, Eleonora Mitrofanova, behaves purposefully provocatively and acts as the Russian governor-general in capital Sofia.
