Digital Slavs - Back Doors to the EU and NATO

What could be the Russian methods of Digital Warfare in the digital space?

Digital sabotage does not necessarily have to involve traditional hacking attacks, but can represent the pitting of the highly regulated EU against technological development. For example, a petition against Artificial Intelligence was initiated in early July, 2023 in Pazardzhik, Bulgaria. It was initiated by Moscow-educated Dr. Veronika Przedarova, who is also part of the most influential digital club in Bulgaria.

What the war in Ukraine demonstrates is that modern forms of warfare are highly digital and informational. Digital warfare involves information misinformation and malicious actions, and malicious actions can be direct and indirect damage. Sabotage, hacking attacks to obtain valuable information, financial crimes or committed directly by Russia or using proxies such as Bulgaria for example. Digital warfare can involve providing to digital criminals a safe haven on Russian territory.

The headlines in 2023 are about Putin's exposed digital espionage and sabotage schemes, about blackmails, attacks by Russian hackers, Russian hunger for strategic intel and leaks of important information or finding the right proxies to skip the economic sanctions.

Technology is the key to the survival of the Russian Empire

After Edward Snowden, the North Atlantic Pact is rocked by a new leaks scandal. A low-ranking military officer with high access to information is leaking a huge volume of highly classified intel.

The importance of technology for Russia

Moscow is becoming a hacker hub, not recognizing any international regulations.

13/04/2023 German Gref(Russian Politician and Businessman) spoke about the development of artificial intelligence at a meeting of the Federation Council. In his speech, he stressed thickly that Russia must invest all its forces in the development of a prepared and educated young generation but also in the acquisition of technological know-how. Sberbank President and Chairman of the Management Board German Gref spoke at a meeting of the Federation Council of the Russian Federal Assembly. The speech took place on the Day of Cosmonautics. The head of Sberbank stressed that the world is currently gaining momentum in space as the pace of technological progress continues to increase.

In his report, he presented the main technologies, which determine the development of mankind. These are artificial intelligence, blockchain, the new Internet (Web 3.0), high-speed Internet (5G/6G), cloud computing, quantum technologies and robotics.

As Herman Gref pointed out, the main one among the above-mentioned technologies is artificial intelligence, which today is available to every company and, moreover, to every person. Whereas a couple of years ago it was thought that AI would only replace routine, easily algorithmized professions, now neural networks have learned to solve much more complicated tasks of highly qualified specialists - in particular, they are already able to write code.

Without AI, it is impossible to do science these days: for example, artificial intelligence has already deciphered all the proteins in the world in just one year. The new generative network ChatGPT 4 already shows the rudiments of strong AI, and neural networks are gradually acquiring all the forms of perception that humans have (text, code, image, sound and so on).

Neural networks are reaching the expert level of knowledge, and one of the leaders in image generation is Sber's Kandinsky 2.1 neural network, which gained one million unique users in just four days. And the model is learning to generate not only images, but also videos, which is much more complex.

"We already see great opportunities for the application of artificial intelligence in various sectors of the Russian economy, including medicine, ecology, and education. Our projects in these areas are already being implemented in more than ten regions of Russia. We can see that the use of artificial intelligence can bring one or two percentage points to economic growth in our country," said Herman Gref.

There are two main questions in the discussion around general artificial intelligence, said Herman Gref. First: when will it appear? Previously the technoskeptics believed that it will happen at the end of the 21st century and the technooptimists thought that it will happen in the 40-50s, but now everyone understands that it will happen much earlier. The second question is: is AI a good or a danger? There are different points of view on this, but the development of increasingly powerful AI systems does not stop for a minute.

"Today, AI is being used extensively by children and teenagers, including for learning tasks. We need to be very invested in figuring out how we can live with the new technology stack. We need to teach kids three things. One: every child needs to know how AI works. Two: he must understand the difference between AI and humans. And three: he must know how to work with AI to enhance his own abilities.

And our future depends on how we answer the following questions: what future do we hope for? what automation do we want to have? what new professions will replace the old ones? what should we teach our children to be adapted to this future? and what does it mean to remain human in the era of AI?" - summarized Herman Gref.

When we talk about Digital as well as National Security in Bulgaria, the organizations that unravel digital crimes are the General Directorate for Combating Organized Crime at the Ministry of Interior and the new Digital Club, which brings together various academic specialists as well as people in the IT business in Bulgaria. Which in reality opens Digital Doors to the security systems of the Western bloc in which Bulgaria is located.

Just for reference, the properties of Russian citizens in Bulgaria are 600, 000. And they are the main international player, not only on the real estate market for citizens, but also on industrial and agricultural land. Plovdiv itself is a very interesting city. This is the city of the Russian Consul in Bulgaria, one of the richest and most influential Bulgarian oligarchs. It is also the city where one of the richest Russians owns the most influential football club. And now the city with the most influential digital organization in Bulgaria, integrated with police and NATO, under President Radev.

Industrial espionage, also known as economic espionage, is a commercial espionage that occurs between companies or corporations. It can involve acquiring intellectual property, sequestering proprietary or operational information, theft of trade secrets, bribery, blackmail, and technological surveillance. It is most commonly associated with technology-heavy industries like computer software, hardware, biotechnology, aerospace, telecommunications, transportation, engine technology, automobiles, machine tools, energy, materials, and coatings. Trusted insiders, known as "moles," are the best sources for industrial espionage. The rise of computers and the internet has expanded the range and detail of information available for industrial espionage, particularly in the energy sector. Companies are increasingly keeping important information off the network to shield from electromagnetic or cellphone transmissions.

Veronika Prezhdarova, Chair of the Council of Bulgarian Graduate Students in Russia

The people behind NATO and EU Digital Security

In early July, 2023 in Pazardzhik, Bulgaria a petition against Artificial Intelligence was initiated. The initiator is the Moscow graduate Dr. Veronika Przedarova. In addition to the petition, there was a discussion about the dangers to humans of Artificial Intelligence falling into the hands of Capitalist Western Corporations.

Veronika Prezhdarova, born in Pazardzhik, Bulgaria, graduated MA Socialist Art at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration in Moscow. University created by Putin and under his realm, merging two top University. It has prided itself on being a breeding ground for future MPs and top politicians. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, ANE changed its strategic model from training members of the "nomenklatura" to providing high quality business education for a new generation of leaders, becoming an institution of higher learning that offers a wide range of academic opportunities in management. Similarly, RAPU has traditionally been a national leader in public administration education for current and future state and municipal employees.

Victoria Prezhdarova MA thesis in the President Academy in Moscow is on - Socialist Art: Conflict or Means of Strengthening National Cultural Sovereignty of Modern Russia?

Her PhD thesis in Bulgaria is on Evolution of Sovereignty in the Conditions of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, with scientific supervisor Associate Professor Stoycho Petrov Stoychev (one of the young political executives since 2004, studied in Hungary, scientific field Organized Crimes and National Security), associated with the ruling Bulgarian party GERB for more than a decade, who became famous during the protests in 2020 when his SUV crashed into the protesters:

Associate Professor Maria Pirgova, who approved the scientific work, says that "The relevance of the topic is indisputable. "As sovereignty and databases are considered at the National level and not as Bulgaria part of Block formations. "The author takes the notion of digital sovereignty mainly from Russian authors who are serious visionaries" "I agree with the author's conclusions in chapter three, which is devoted to the digital independence of Bulgaria and Russia after the collapse of the SIV and the Warsaw Pact. The two countries have different civilizational paths, but they have the same starting position and similar strategic tasks in the process of digitalization." Professor Pyrgova, who specialises in working with trade unions in Russia, became a media celebrity during the 2014 elections when, in order to force miners to vote for her daughter (the Socialist Party's MP candidate), she left miners without food.

Together with the Russian Embassy in Bulgaria are part of an international youth forum on Art and its Impact on History

In Russia Victoria is an active participant in different youth forums for cultural bridges between Bulgaria and Russia.

Since her return to Bulgaria, and extremely fast obtaining a PhD in National Security and Digital Safety, Victoria has quite successfully integrated into the Digital community as well as the Art circles. Her performances in the style not of Soviet Fiction, but of American popular cinema in the Matrix style are funded by the Ministry of Culture.

As well as Art performances adopting images of other Western Pop Cultural movements.

Which does not prevent her from taking quite soft homophobic positions. In general, modern homophobia in Bulgaria is quite mild compared to Russia, as everything is refracted through the concern for unconscious children who should not be subjected to destructive Western sexual propaganda.

At the end of 2022, Bulgaria was in the global media spotlight with a uniquely criminal scheme. From Reuters to the Financial Times, everyone is talking about the collapse of Bulgaria's next multi-billion dollar Ponzi digital scheme - NEXO. A $100 billion financial scam, intertwined with terrorism, assassinations, money laundering, pseudo revolutions, political engineering and the Putin regime's hand glimpsed in the distance.

A $100 billion financial scam, intertwined with terrorism, assassinations, money laundering, pseudo revolutions, political engineering and the Putin regime's hand glimpsed in the distance.

Borislav Sarafov, head of the National Investigative Service, said the NEXO case is unique in the world...The profile of the four accused of the NEXO crypto bank scheme is that of highly intelligent and highly educated people. People who are citizens of the world. One can be proud that they are Bulgarians. I won't say their names, but maybe you know some of them. They have been charged with having participated in, and one of them led, an organised criminal group with a self-serving purpose to commit crimes - money laundering, tax crimes, computer fraud and banking without a licence - in the territories of Bulgaria, the UK, Ireland, Switzerland and the Cayman Islands from the beginning of 2018 until 12 January 2023. All the accused have been banned from leaving our country "There is evidence that these individuals have extremely large financial capabilities. They have expensive properties in Dubai, the Caribbean, the Bahamas and own yachts. In one of the homes searched, 35 paintings by expensive artists such as Salvador Dali, Picasso and Matisse were found and seized, which will be handed over to the National Art Gallery," said the spokeswoman for the Prosecutor General Siyka Mileva. According to Sarafov, 20 people have been questioned so far - some of them anonymously. Some of those questioned have said they fear for their safety and will be included in the witness protection programme.

Ruja and her house in London

But Bulgaria's Generation Y criminal mastermind has a unique brand of organized crime, made up of people who in any other reality would be entrepreneurs and inventors, public figures and visionaries. The biggest financial fraud on the Island, which has harmed the most vulnerable in the UK's social sector. Suspected Bulgarian gangs misused funds intended for aid to deal with the economic impact of the coronavirus in the UK. The most wanted refugee on the planet with a 3.2 billion financial fraud is also Bulgarian and linked to London.Ruzha Ignatova was born in 1980, she is a typical representative of the Bulgarian generation Y and the most wanted by the FBI crypto thief. Meanwhile, despite being the most wanted woman in the world, in January 2023 she claimed an apartment in London, as reported by the Times.

Ruja is one of the world's most wanted fugitives, having allegedly defrauded investors of £3.2 billion in cryptocurrency, the British daily recalled. However, Ruzha Ignatova, also known as the "missing crypto-queen," appears to have briefly shown up this week to formally claim a London townhouse worth £13.5 million, the Times reported, cited by BTA. Ignatova, who is on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list, has been missing since 2017, when United States officials issued a warrant for her arrest. She founded OneCoin, a Bulgaria-based company that trades in the cryptocurrency market. "WanCoin offers buyers a commission if they sell currency to other people - a Pyramid (ponzi scheme) disguised as cryptocurrency, the newspaper explains.

Speaking of digital crimes, we are proud to mention another very famous, US-educated and extremely intelligent Bulgarian, Vlad Tenev and his crypto empire Robin Hood, which, after going under in 2022, is not only in liquidation, but also under investigation by the US authorities, although it seems that Vlad has managed to get out in time, at least for now.


Bulgaria has been in a political crisis since 2021, with the fifth elections in a row to form a government held on 02/04/2023. Which seems to be unsuccessful again. But an interesting headline appeared in the newspaper Dnevnik, which is the official mouthpiece of people with pro-Western views in Bulgaria. The Coalition of Democratic and Pro-Western Parties in Bulgaria has received a donation of 500, 000(biggest donation) leva before the elections from one of the most controversial figures in recent Bulgarian history. Sasho Donchev, the owner of Overgaz, Gazprom's long-time partner in Bulgaria. Owner of one of the key medias in Bulgaria- Sega, who in the Faculty of Journalism of Sofia University during the communist regime was Komsomol secretary(Communist Youths Leader), Long-time partner and Russian Gazprom's top man for Bulgaria. .
