The fourteenth annual Lukov march went ahead despite being banned by the mayor of Sofia & public opposition from the Bulgarian Socialist Party, the Russian foreign ministry, & the Shalom Organization of Jews in Bulgaria.
The event is held yearly to honor wartime leader General Hristo Lukov, who was murdered by communist forces in 1943.
Over 2,000 Bulgarian nationalists were in attendance, organized by the Bulgarian National Alliance.
Guests from other European nations were present for the event, including delegations from the Nordic Resistance (Sweden & Norway), Die Recht (Germany), & Der Dritte Weg (Germany). Also present were nationalists from Poland, France, Italy, Croatia, Hungary & Spain.
There was no significant street protest of the event, & no reports of violence or arrest of the participants.
