Why do you send Latin letters to a Bulgarian dictionary?  If you remove
the "A-Za-z" part, your spellcheck should work faster and better
(unless you have an integrated Bulgarian-English dictionary).
Besides, "192" seems to be a strange octal number, I'd expect

           "[\300-\377]" "[^\300-\377]"

So your ispell is not checking Bulgarian, it checks English.  Did you
set the Bulgarian dictionary?  Something like

(ispell-change-dictionary "bulgarian")

You may wish to define some shortcuts, e.g.

(global-set-key "\C-cia"
                (lambda () "set English dictionary"
                  (ispell-change-dictionary "english")
                  (setq diction-ruleset "en")
(global-set-key "\C-cip"
                (lambda () "set Russian dictionary"
                  (ispell-change-dictionary "russian")

(global-set-key "\C-cib" 'ispell-buffer)
(global-set-key "\C-cic" 'ispell-change-dictionary)
(global-set-key "\C-cim" 'ispell-message)
(global-set-key "\C-cir" 'ispell-region)
(global-set-key "\C-ciw" 'ispell-complete-word)
