Traycho Dimitrov[1] Belopopski (1935–2008) was a Bulgarian intelligence officer. He was sent to Oxford University to study in 1964. When he decided to remain in England, he was sentenced to death in absentia by Bulgarian authorities.

Belopopski was contacted by author Alexenia Dimitrova in New York City in 2006. He declined talking to the writer, stating that he feared repercussions to family members from assassins whom he still feared. However, in the private correspondence between them, Belopopski disclosed details about a visit his father made while he resided in London in 1964. His dad brought him some lukanka from Bulgaria. Belopopski tossed the lukanka in the street where it was eaten by a dog, which became violently sick immediately, and died.[2]
