Национално обединение „АТАКА“ (съкратено Коалиция „АТАКА“, срещано и като Национален съюз „Атака“), е националистическа коалиция в България, създадена преди парламентарните избори през 2005 и ръководена от Волен Сидеров.
Ръководител: Волен Сидеров
Основана: 17 април 2005
The National Union Attack is a far-right nationalist political party in Bulgaria. At the last legislative elections, 5 July 2009, it won 9.4% of the popular vote and 21 out of 240 seats. In the 2009 European Parliament elections Attack won 12.0% of the vote, giving them two seats in the European Parliament.
National Union Attack was formed by the National Movement for the Salvation of the Fatherland (Natsionalno Dvizhenie za Spasenie na Otechestvoto), the Bulgarian National-Patriotic Party (Bǎlgarska Natsionalna-Patriotichna Partiya) and the Union of Patriotic Forces and Militaries of the Reserve Defense (Sǎyuz na Patriotichnite Sili i Voinite ot Zapassa - Zashtita). Led by TV host Volen Siderov, the coalition was created just two months before the elections. Siderov first created a party with that name, but its registration was delayed by the court so it could not participate in the elections by itself.
The party's stance is critical in their perception of an excess of privilege for Bulgaria's ethnic minorities; additionally, they have accused the entire Bulgarian political establishment of being corrupt, and are opposed to NATO, the Iraq War and closer ties with the USA. Although the party is ambivalent on Bulgaria's European Union membership, it has demanded a revision of some of the previous agreements (e.g.
the resolution on shutting down the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant near the Danube).
The sudden upsurge in support of Attack was attributed to be one of the causes of the poor performance (31%) of the Bulgarian Socialist Party in the 2005 election. Leading figures in the party have included Ognyan Saparev, Rumen Vodenicharov and Stella Bankova (who left the party in 2006).
