The explosion took place in a warehouse near the Bulgarian town of Karnobat on July 31 this year.
Bulgarian arms businessman Emilian Gebrev, who survived a probable Novichok poisoning in 2015, accused the Russian special services of blowing up his warehouses with goods.
He is quoted The Guardian.
“This cannot be an accident, there was nothing in the building that could explode without outside interference,” the businessman assures.
The explosion took place in a warehouse near the Bulgarian town of Karnobat on July 31 this year. This is the fifth explosion in recent years in the warehouses of the arms company, which belongs to Gebrev. The Bulgarian prosecutor’s office suspects that Russia is behind these crimes.
Gebrev fell into a coma in 2015, and the West is sure that Russian agents poisoned the businessman with Novichok. Gebrev added that before the explosion last weekend, an alarm went off at his warehouses: this indicates that the attackers entered the facility with a break-in.
There were weapons in the warehouses that African countries ordered, but then they did not pay for the goods and in the end they refused to buy weapons.
Formerly Gebrev confirmedthat his company Emco at the end of 2014 signed contracts for the supply of ammunition to Ukraine. Prosecutor’s Office of Bulgaria collects evidence in order to establish the involvement of six Russian citizens in four explosions at ammunition depots in the period from 2011 to 2020.
