Ukraine is a fictional country, just like Macedonia, stated Bulgarian historian Dimitrov for Bulgarian National Television.

– In 1954, a drunkard gave away the Crimea, Russian territory, along with its Russian population, to a fictional country, to a “Macedonia”. Russian Macedonia – that is Ukraine. Fictional border – such as the borders of Macedonia. When the political elite creates such fictional countries and false nations that never existed, it is appropriate it to be repaired at some point – said Dimitrov.

In 1954, during the rule of Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, Crimean peninsula was handed over to Ukraine, which was part of the USSR.
