'Aiming their weapons at workers': US troops accidentally raid factory in Bulgaria
Guardian, 03 Jun 2021
The owner of a small sunflower oil factory in Bulgaria has filed a lawsuit after US soldiers accidentally stormed his facility during a Nato military exercise last month. The soldiers mistook the factory for a decommissioned airbase used as part of the exercise.
'No weapons were fired at any time during the interaction,' the army statement said. The Bulgarian president, Rumen Radev, said it was 'absolutely unacceptable to have the life and calm of Bulgarian citizens put at risk by military units, be they part of the Bulgarian or foreign armed forces'
