Hundreds of far-right nationalists from around Europe marched through Sofia on Saturday to honor World War II general, Hristo Lukov, known for his Nazi affiliations. The 'Lukov March,' organized by the far-right Bulgarian National Legions (BNL), has been held annually since 2003, involving participants from France, Germany, Sweden, Poland, and Hungary.
Heavy police presence was deployed in the Bulgarian capital as the march proceeded to lay flowers at General Lukov's house, the site of his assassination in 1943. Lukov was minister of war from 1935-1938, and led the Union of Bulgarian National Legions (UBNL).
