Which country was ruled by Basil II the Bulgar-slayer?

Bulgaria
Russia
Byzantine Empire
Turkey
At the start of the second mil­len­ni­um, Basil attacked Bul­gar­i­ans in order to restore ter­ri­to­ries the Empire had lost long before. He was said to have captured 15,000 pris­on­ers and blinded 99 of every 100 men, leaving one one-eyed man in each cohort to lead the rest back home. Samuel, the ruler of Bulgaria was so shocked seeing his blinded army, that he died two days later.
