The head of the Bulgarian government noted that Bulgaria supports the EU's efforts to ramp up pressure on Russia in order to limit its ability to wage war.

"Only Russia and its leadership are responsible for this terrible war and its consequences. We believe that the aggressor must be held accountable for the crime of aggression against Ukraine and for the violation of international humanitarian law. We hope for fruitful cooperation between the ministries of justice of our countries. It is for this reason that the Minister of Justice of Bulgaria is part of our delegation today," the Bulgarian Prime Minister emphasized.
