President Radev with strong words for May 24
Here is how his post continued:
“It was 1982 and I was studying at the circus school in Moscow! In a Russian language class our teacher told us that Kiril and Metodi were Russians! That’s how they taught in Moscow then! Dani, Pesho and Chocho were 15 years old then and obviously we didn’t realize exactly what a Propaganda Machine was!
Our classmates (Russians) were shocked by our “impudence”! They had learned all their lives that Cyril and Methodius were Russians, and now suddenly four Bulgarians were explaining terrible nonsense to them! Then they called us to the Bulgarian Embassy in Moscow and told us not to explain! Yeah! Such were the times! So my question is: Do the Russians already know that Cyril and Methodius are not Russians?
Faith and letters have preserved our identity! There are things that can’t take us!
Happy Holidays to everyone!”
