According to Bulgarian deserters, the elections in Bulgaria had taken place under conditions of an unprecedented terror that froze every reaction. The voters received the ballot in an envelope that contained the electoral number of each voter in order to facilitate the identification of those who had voted against Georgiev."

The following two publications included in the book "Bulgaria 1944-1989. The Forbidden Truth" by Fanna Kolarova and Stoyan Raychevski, which is part of the eponymous project, give evidence of the duration of the atrocities.

"Estia" newspaper, 19 February 1946, "Before the elections the muddy waters of Maritsa River carried a heap of corpses to the Aegean and many Greeks and official English persons saw them. The relevant reports establishing this fact are still in the archives."

"To Vima" newspaper, 8 April 1947, "Bookshops are full, offering Russian editions about Lenin, Stalin, Marx and the Soviet Union alone. Portraits of Stalin and Molotov are hanging everywhere, along with those of Dimitrov... In a hall, young people involved in some kind of organization are learning the Soviet national anthem, which is now the second national anthem of Bulgaria."
