Thread: While the world is shaken by the #murder of #Bulgarian journalist #ViktoriaMarinova, it might be a good time to talk about the country itself. #BG ranks lower in #PressFreedom than both #Hungary or #Poland. The country is the poorest and most corrupt in the #EU. 1/13
Yet, the #EU somehow does not think #Bulgaria is a big issue, due to the fact that PM (and ex-bodyguard of #Soviet General Secretary Todor Zhivkov) @BoykoBorissov "behaves", unlike #Orban and #Kaczyński, who openly challenge the Union. Borissov's party is also member of @EPP 2/13
#MediaFreedom-wise, 80% of the print media in the country is owned by MP #Peevski, whose pro-gov tabloids (with the generous help of other pro-gov actors who get nice rewards in return such as property #Blaskov) stifle #opposition and manage vast #antiEU smear campaigns 3/13

Victoria Marinova, a journalist from #Bulgaria, was raped and murdered in the city of Ruse and found at the Danube River banks yesterday. She'd been investigating corruption involving EU funds in the #GPGate case europeanjournalists.org/blog/2018/10/0….
#VictoriaMarinova and TVN.bg had just done the only on air reporting on #GPGate before her assassination. Her last broadcast: an interview w/ RISE Romania reporter @Biro_A and @BivolBg's Dimitar Stoyanov on #GPGate.
