Bulgarian claims on the state of Tsar Samoil

Bulgarians claim that the state of Tsar Samoil was continuance of the Bulgarian, but that's clearly not the case:

"In 972 the emperor Joan Tsimishi destroyed the political and ecclesiastical independence of the Eastern Bulgarian kingdom."

After what the Bulgarian Kingdom ceased to exist and the Bulgarian crown was taken to Constantinopol.

Because of these 2 points, the end of the kingdom and the captured crown, it's more than obvious Samoil couldn't be the successor of the Bulgarians.
