A small Skinhead scene has been observed in Bulgaria, in
Varna, Pleven and the capital city of Sofia. Foreigners and
Gypsies are the most frequent victims of Skinhead assaults. On
March 26, 1994, a large gang of Skinheads attacked members of
the Gypsy community in Pleven. The Skins reportedly beat
several people and set one house on fire.

The 1994 Human Rights Report of the U.S. Department of State
reports that Skinheads in Ruse attacked parishioners attending
services at the Bulgarian Church of God. Eight people were
seriously injured.

The youth wing of a group calling itself the Bulgarian
National Socialist Party claimed responsibility for the
distribution of pro-Hitler leaflets at a university in the
summer of 1993, but it is not clear whether the organization
has any connection with the Skinheads.(Anti-Defamation League,
