Gradually, the refugee centres in Bulgaria are starting to fill up. We are ready to put into operation other such centres for the accommodation of migrants. This was said for BGNES by the Minister of Interior Boyko Rashkov.
He explained that such centres would be opened in the southeastern part of the country, near the border.
According to Rashkov, groups, mostly Afghans, are approaching Turkey and are expected to try to enter the EU. On Monday, at a meeting of the National Security Council, Rashkov will report on the situation around the flow of migrants.
