In Bulgaria, young people are about 1.3 million or 1/5 of the country's population. There are cases of aggression in school and in the street. Therefore, a number of projects are being implemented, aimed at the prevention of aggression and addictions, as sport is the major approach used, Minister Kralev pointed out.
