The indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev who has left a mark in the history of the Transition period in Bulgaria with one of the most maleficent privatisation deals – that for Kaolin mining company, managed to lug in his manipulations even the US State Department.
Indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev tried to conceal the EVN case, which the court started hearing on Thursday, with a campaign of fake news. The shady businessman from Razgrad is being tried for the sale of the state’s remaining stake in the electricity distribution company alongside two former ministers – Simeon Djankov and Traycho Traykov.
The news feed can be slow at times, making materials ripe for turning it into a storm of fake news scarce, but that is not enough to discourage Bulgarian oligarchs. They have loyal journalist diligently following their talking points. In such cases these journalists simply go to their archives and dust off the eternal fake news about Bulgartabac.
It’s long been common knowledge: don’t trust people who are handsome on the outside but rotten inside. But the designers of “clever and handsome” label from the very beginning were at odds with the first part and no longer even try to conceal that they are rotten inside out. This is exactly the case of Capital newspaper, the flagship of the indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev.

The only way to make people be faithful to you is to make them fear you more than they fear their enemies. This is a quotation from The Game of Thrones. So said Queen of the Seven Kingdoms Cersei Lannister. These words suit perfectly to describe the avalanche of fakes which the oligarch-publishers have released to bury under it the lawmaker and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski.
What do the oligarchs put at stake in their battle against Delyan Peevski, the sworn enemy of the backstage machinations in Bulgaria? You can judge by yourselves if you only take the trouble to finger through the pages of the flagship newspaper of the oligarchs’ disinformation fleet – the Capital.
Fake News Factory’s motto: not a day without a lie about Peevski
Not a day without a lie about Peevski. This is the motto of the Fake News Factory founded by the satellite media of oligarchs Ivo Prokopiev, Tsvetan Vassilev, Ognyan Donev and Sasho Donchev. Over the span of the last seven days, this manipulation machine has published or copy-pasted eight fake news concerning lawmaker and publisher of Telegraph Media, a tag-up with Google shows.
If practice makes perfect, the regurgitation of talking points makes for ultimate disinformation. Goebbels came up with essentially the same philosophy nearly a century ago, but it is being employed to this day by the Bulgarian followers of the Nazi minister of propaganda working for the slandering machine of the indicted oligarchs-turned-publishers led by Ivo Prokopiev.
The past week was marked by frenetic activity in the publications owned or financed by oligarch-publishers (and criminal defendants) Ivo Prokopiev, Ognyan Donev and Tsvetan Vassilev who joined efforts against the eternal foe of the backstage power brokers, namely the MP and publisher of the Telegraph Media, Delyan Peevski.
