Ambassador of Ukraine to Bulgaria Mykola Baltazhi expressed outrage at the incident, the press service of the Embassy.

Besides Baltazhi called on Bulgarian authorities to investigate “this dirty provocation”.
In turn, the foreign Minister of Bulgaria, Catherine of Zaharia in response stressed that the incident is “an unpleasant story but it would have resulted in scandal, if the flag unfurled some public authority or public servant”.
“It’s a really unpleasant story. We have a free state, everyone has the right to Express their own opinions. But this Republic, as it is written on the flag, not recognized by anyone. The most annoying thing is that the flag of the unrecognized Republic, which in the near future will remain a symbol of the violations of law and threats to stability and peace in Europe, was carried on the celebrations on the occasion of the anniversary of the battle for freedom and democracy,” she said.
Separately Zahariev added that “we are talking about citizens who have the right to freedom of expression”, which she personally supports.
