Media: the Russian intelligence agencies listen to deputies of the EU in the Sofia hotel


The Bulgarian press has come to such conclusion. The prestigious five-star hotel "Marinella" in which the European politicians stop have allegedly found special equipment. It is reported that wiretap was carried out from January to July, 2018 Marinella Hotel in Sofia. Photo: Booking.com of Staff of the Russian intelligence agencies is suspected of wiretap of negotiations of politicians of the EU who were in the Bulgarian hotel "Marinella" in Sofia from January to July, 2018. The News.bg edition reports about it. The journalist Grigor Lilov has said that the five-star hotel was listened "from the cellar to a roof". The message has generated a storm of emotions at which the elementary logic is disconnected. So, the former ambassador of Bulgaria in Russia Iliyan Vasilev, has written to Facebook that if information on wiretap is right, so the Bulgarian counterintelligence has shown the full powerlessness, and if not, then it "shows ability of Russians to manipulate skillfully both public opinion, and opinion of our western allies completely to discredit Bulgaria". Special coloring of a situation is given by history of hotel which was in due time the favourite place of meetings of intelligence agents of the Soviet block and in which such odious persons as Mehmet Agdzha attempting upon the Pope John Paul II and Ilyich Ramirez Sanchez known under a nickname Carlos Shakal who is nowadays serving for life in the French prison stayed.

If we remember everything that was in Montenegro, in this sense certain Bulgarian political forces can be quite interested in that for the internal political purposes to somehow lift a plot with the Russian trace. Here, of course, criminalists and professionals need to understand, to react to information throws — business not really grateful, it is necessary just to follow the developments, only then it will be possible to understand who stands behind it". One of the most plausible versions of that from where hearing about wiretap of Marinella could appear can be the fact that in hotel there have really passed searches which are almost for certain connected with activity of the owner of hotel Vetko Arabadzhiyev, about
