"The people who went at the first night were wearing hoods, masks, bats, and had prepared flammable liquids with the idea of ​​throwing them at the police," Krassimir Karakachanov, deputy prime minister and GERB's coalition partner said, commenting on the restoration of tent camps in Sofia and claims by the Sofia police that there were attempts for inciting violence.

He said that the protesters were aware that such actions would be followed by a response, saying that the police had acted wisely not to attack them. "It is no longer possible to tolerate this as one cannot ruin the country because of a few Sorosoid NGOs and parties that are outside parliament and want to seize power," he said. Krassimir Karakachanov was a guest at the celebration of the Navy Day in Varna.
