MOSCOW, October 9 — the U.S. is ready to help the Bulgarian authorities in the investigation of resonant murder of journalist Victoria Marinova, said the American Embassy in Sofia.
Administrative Director and host of the regional TV channel TVN 30-year-old Viktoria Marinov was killed on 6 October in the city of Ruse in Northern Bulgaria. The investigation believes that the murder is possibly related to the investigative work of the journalist. The last topic, on which he worked Marinova, was the so-called GPGate scandal around the embezzlement of European Union funds.
“We are shocked by the horrific murder of journalist Victoria Marinova in Ruse. USA, if necessary, may help the Bulgarian authorities to bring the perpetrators to justice,” reported the American Embassy in Twitter.
