"The situation is quite serious and calls for quick and lasting measures," Demerdzhiev added. For this purpose, a road safety specialist has been recruited into the team of the Ministry of Interior. There will be actions to confiscate illegally acquired weapons as well as ones against the distribution of drugs, starting from areas near schools.
