Bulgaria investigates the remains of the alleged military drone found in its territory
Bulgarian researchers are trying to establish the origin of apparent military drone parts found near a resort town on the Black Sea. The remains, including possible explosive components, They were discovered near a pier in Tyulenovo, about 60 kilometers from Varna. Bulgaria sent a team of five military experts in bomb disposal to study the case. Since Ukraine launched its counteroffensive against the Russian invasion, several drones have landed in Romania or other areas of the Black Sea region.
The Bulgarian authorities are awaiting the result of that inspection, carried out by a team of five soldiers specialized in the disposal of explosives and ammunition, to decide the next steps, according to an official press release.
According to the Nova.bg portal, these measures were triggered by the complaint filed last night by some local citizens who said they had found a drone on the rocks of the coast of Tyulenevo, very close to the border with Romania.
**The portal cites witnesses who claim that the drone had an electronic light and a deactivated bomb.**At the moment, it is not clear how the device reached the Bulgarian coast, as it could have fallen directly from the air or been been carried away by the currents of the sea.
Broadcasters bTV and Nova TV consider it likely to be related to Russia’s attacks in southern Ukraine.
The television stations published photos taken by social media users of the device, which according to witnesses measures about three meters and carried an explosive device measuring between 50 and 60 centimeters.
In recent days, several fragments of Russian drones fell on Romanian soil, near the border with Ukraine, during night attacks in the south of this country. Both Bulgaria and Romania belong to NATO.
