A month later, the President of Bulgaria Rosen Plevneliev made a statement that Russia turned their attention to the Balkans and is preparing for «hybrid warfare» to destabilize the whole of Europe. Plevneliev demanded that the EU and NATO do more to counter the growing threat of Russian aggression.
