AMB Rubin Launches Red Ribbon Day at Sofia Airport

Over 500 Bulgarian students marked Red Ribbon Day with Ambassador Rubin today.  Red Ribbon Day honors U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent Enrique ”Kiki” Camarena, who was killed standing up to drug traffickers.  Bulgaria’s National Customs Service and the U.S. DEA partnered to organize today’s event.  The 13 to 17-year-old students honored Kiki’s legacy and the fight against illegal drug trafficking by learning about the dangers of illegal drug use and trafficking from Bulgarian Customs Service Officer Stefan Bakalov, watching a taekwondo demonstration, listening and dancing to music, and watching a drug sniffer dog hunt down and help arrest a suspect.
