In Bulgaria on Tuesday, July 28, continued protests demanding the resignation of the government Prime Minister Boyko Borisov. During these protests, activists pelted Borisov’s residence in Boyana with counterfeit 500 euro banknotes depicting the head of the Bulgarian government.

Thus, the protesters wanted to draw attention to the fact that the country has not yet conducted an investigation to verify the authenticity of the scandalous video posted on the Internet in June. The recording from Boyko Borisov’s bedroom shows that there is a pistol on the night table near the sleeping prime minister, and in the open drawer of the table there are packs of 500 euro bills and gold bars.
