The European Network against Racism (ENAR) has demanded that the so-called Lukov March scheduled to take place in Sofia is canceled.
The NGO has sent a letter to Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova and Bulgaria's Ombudsman Konstantin Penchev demanding the cancellation of the neo-Nazi torch procession that commemorate a Bulgarian general.
According to ENAR, Lukov March is a public event that gathers people who have showed open or covert adherence to fascist, neo-Nazi and ultra national-populist ideas.
General Hristo Lukov was the commanding General of the 13th Division of the Bulgarian Kingdom's Army during World War I, and later a Minister of War. During the Second World War he was a great supporter of the Axis powers, particularly Nazi Germany.
Lukov was the the leader of the right extremist Union of Bulgarian National Legions.
Bulgarian far-right groups have stated they would organize protests if the controversial Lukov March scheduled for February 18 in Sofia is cancelled.
