Bulgarian President Rumen Radev vetoed the supply of armored vehicles to Ukraine, local media reported on Monday.

Radev argued that the armored vehicle could be used for protecting Bulgaria's borders or for assisting citizens during disasters in remote areas.

“I am guided by the conviction that the safety, health and lives of the Bulgarian citizens should be a top priority,” he was quoted as saying by the BTA news agency.

The agreement on the provision of armored vehicles from the Bulgarian inventory to Ukraine was signed in Sofia on Aug. 8 and in Kyiv on Nov.13.

On Nov. 22, in the first and second reading, the Bulgarian parliament approved the provision of the vehicles with its available armament to Ukraine.
