View U.S., Bulgaria sign agreement for protection of cultural heritage

This month Bulgarian media had distributed information for a signed document by the Bulgarian Minister of Culture Petar Stoyanovich and American Ambassador Marcie B. Ries about the export and import of Bulgarian antiques. Although the document attempts to prevent illegal export of antiques, it was signed in the National Museum of History – a place where many suspect that keeps secret of corruption and crime of the current Director Bozhidar Dimitrov who is also directly connected with Vassil Bozhkov. Current Bulgarian government, which is tragic for Bulgaria, obviously attempts recognition from the world, while the role of the American Ambassador is to keep democracy clean and healthy. Why the American Ambassador agreed to have gone to the National Museum of History to sign the document is unclear. Recently it was documented that the American Research Center in Sofia has been named some employees of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences “professors” without these people have such titles.

Going to the National Museum of History is a huge mistake of the American Ambassador in Sofia. She should have asked for another place without the presence of Bozhidar Dimitrov. Beyond being close with Vassil Bozhkov, Bozhidar Dimitrov is an active participant of the Dubene-Balinov Gorun Affair and while it requires Interpol investigation, it is easy to see in the media that he stated that there was no settlement related to the Early Bronze Age cemetery, while in fact the big settlement just in several hundred meters has been known to the world science for a decade. As it is well known, any lie is a crime. Then, this document was signed in an institution which Director had been committed to crime. However, Americans as national identity do not allow people committed to crime to make politics and culture. Not to mention, that at the time when was signed the document, in the same building were probably private finds of Vassil Bozhkov, as well as recently Bozhidar Dimitrov was the Director of one exhibit in Moscow where were mixed government and private antiques.

As it is well known from most recent history, the communist regimes in Eastern Europe survived several decades because the governments had tried to be very active in the cultural interactions with the countries with western democracy having their people who in fact were either communist or agents of National Security. In this period of revealing the nightmare of communism, the government of Bulgaria continues the old politics of showing the world it is well accepted by the West in period of most serious critics and revealing all truth about the past and current corruption and crime. Then, the Ambassadors of western countries should be especially careful in any contact to ensure that serve democracy and not act as toys of corruption and crime in Eastern Europe.

From the website of American Embassy in Sofia:

On January 14, 2014 Ambassador Marcie B. Ries and Minister of Culture Dr. Petar Stoyanovich signed an agreement between the United States of America and the Republic of Bulgaria concerning the protection of Bulgaria’s cultural heritage. In her opening remarks Ambassador Marcie B. Ries said that “the reason we are all here today is to support Bulgaria in its efforts to protect, preserve, understand, and celebrate this history, which is important not only for Bulgaria, but for the world.” The ceremony took place at the National Museum of History in Sofia and was attended by Prime Minister Oresharski, Professor Bozhidar Dimitrov, Director of the National Museum of History, members of the government, experts in Bulgarian history and archeology, and the media.

Comment: This is all about - American official website to list Peter Stoyanovich and Bozhidar Dimitrov in period of revealing of the Bulgarian nightmare because of the current government and the past communist regimes. However, it is known from everybody that nobody should export illegal antiques. Also, if one comes to the USA, it should be declared all cultural valued objects and all obtained abroad objects. However, such activity of the American embassy makes the thinking Bulgarians in Bulgaria away from and negative toward the USA since the officials collaborate with people who are known for their corruption. And this is exactly what Petar Stoyanovich and Bozhidar Dimitrov want - less people in Bulgaria to like and to search for support from the USA.
