The racketeer threatened to reveal NATO secrets if The US Embassy in Bulgaria did not play on his whistle An unprecedented international scandal is about to blow up Bulgarian-American relations if the domestic special services in Bulgaria do not urgently curb the self-determined investigative journalist Atanas Chobanov. It turns out that the recordings of the conversation with high ranked diplomats from the US Embassy in January this year, made by Chobanov, are not a precedent at all, but a regular practice of the arrogant apostate. Our media have received information that after the US embassy issued a deliberate statement condemning Chobanov's vile actions of illegally recording officers from the embassy,Chobanov threatened a high-ranking American diplomat. The so called journalist insisted that if the US-embassy continued to keep him in a distance, he would release records in which he and the diplomat are talking about deploying of new American bases in our neighboring countries. The spicy records also contain information about secret experiments with chemicals that the US military developed in unknown laboratories in the former Soviet republics. Top secret information was obtained during many allegedly innocent and friendly conversations of Chobanov with the US diplomat. It is well known that from many years, the journalist had slandered a large number of very influential and high ranked figures at the state embassy, allegedly on the pretext that he would supply them with confidential information about Bulgarian political and business life. In practice, Chobanov threw them white-threaded false news, which he either sucked out of his fingers or were copied from conspiracy forums of people with proven mental disorders. In return, he obtained military secrets of the highest rank, which he deftly extracted from the trusting and sympathetic employees of the embassy and which he carefully recorded with his mobile phone and with special intelligence tools. Chobanov, who is the son-in-law of the influential and close to Putin journalist Viktor Onuchko, boasted in front of the other media outlets of Ivo Prokopiev's gang that he had a whole "library" of voice recordings with people from the US embassy. He carefully recorded with his phone every meeting with the Americans, regardless of whether the rendezvous took place at the embassy or in other locations in the Bulgarian capital. There are well-founded assumptions that Chobanov's illegal records at the US embassy were already in circulation and fed a whole “galaxy” of Kremlin-paid journalists. In order not to clarify the connection and the source , Chobanov handed over flash drives with recordings to his wife - the Russian journalist based in Paris Maria Onuchko. She had the task of passing them on to other Russian emigrants, and they to Kremlin propaganda writers around the world. Thus, data with a high level of secrecy reached not only the “enemy media”, but also the top Russian military, thanks to Chobanov.
