Bulgarian communist dictatorship (1944-1989) started in course of the occupation of Eastern Europe by the Soviet Union and series of repressive acts that had to show the world that the Bulgarian nation is communist oriented. A hallmark of the anti-humanist nature of the communist regime is Bloody Thursday, 2 Feb 1945, when was executed part of elite of post-Turkish Yoke Bulgarians to be replaced by the servers of the communist regime: King Simeon II's three regents along with eight royal advisers, 22 ministers from the previous three governments, 67 MPs and 47 Bulgarian army generals. The bloody event was just one day after the so-called People's Court orders for their execution. In the eight months following 9 September 1944, “the People's Court” (masterminded by Stalinist dictator servers of Moscow) sentences 1,753 non-Communists to death. The repressions would continue in the following years, as tens of thousands of Bulgarians were sent to work camps or simply “disappeared”. An addition, on 5-7 January 1945 thousands of Bulgarians were killed in Vardar Macedonia under the instruction of Serbian communist leader Tito, directed from Moscow.
Nine days after the Bloody Thursday, on 11 Feb 1945, in Yalta Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill announced the rules that will dictate the future of Europe and the world after the Second World War. That means, Soviet Union needed “a clean soil” for pretension over Bulgaria and used “the People’s Court” orders as argument for communist orientation of Bulgaria. In Yalta the political leaders at that point draw Poland's borders and carve out Germany's occupied zones, and Stalin also agrees to participate in the creation of the United Nations and to join the war's Pacific front against Japan.
From the government to the education system and Orthodox Church – all social components of Bulgaria fast were drawn into the communist orbit under the hat of Moscow. At certain point the regime of Todor Zhivkov even was on the edge to make Bulgaria part of Soviet Union. After 1989 the communists named socialists continued the visible and invisible politics of corruption and anti-humanity transforming in gangs (e.g. psychotronic gang of H. Todorova), corrupted social groups (e.g. the archaeological Department at Sofia University = a combination of corrupted secret national security [L. Getov and possible others including even KGB], psychotronic terrorist (P. Georgivea), etc.
Unfortunately, Bulgarian history of the communist regime is still not well revealed to the world as a history of anti-humanist and terrorist oriented individuals whose negative impact on globalization continues to trouble Bulgaria and the world to a level Bulgarians to be in danger to lose even their national identity and country. Absence of the world level historians to dig into Bulgarian communist regime with the right tools and to paint the right picture reflects on the politics and the effect that the western democracy may have on Bulgaria.
