The military balance in the Black Sea is in Russia's favor, which poses security risks to the countries in the region, including Bulgaria, reads the 2020 report on the state of defense, adopted at the last meeting of Bulgaria’s cabinet before the general elections. 

The report notes that in 2020 the Maritime Coordination Center opened in Varna. Recently, Bulgaria’s Prosecutor's Office announced that the group charged over alleged Russian spy ring had shown interest in the activities of the Maritime Coordination Center, the reporter of the Bulgarian National Radio Dobromir Videv reminded.

The modernization of this country’s Land Forces has slowed down due to scarce financial resources, the report further reads. Problems with aircraft maintenance and the low number of flight hours of military pilots remain a real threat to the protection of Bulgaria’s airspace, reads the report.
