Security is more important to Bulgarians than freedom and democracy, indicates a survey by Research Center Trend. The survey was conducted in October 2022 and was commissioned by INTERIMAGE PR & Corporate Communications Agency and Interpartners Communications. 

According to 90% of respondents, education and healthcare should be free. According to 47% of the polled, peace is the most important value, followed by family and security. Freedom comes 6th. If respondents had to choose between freedom and security, most of them would choose security. Most of the respondents believe that the state should provide a job to everyone who wants to work and that life is meaningless without children.

Bulgarians have become more sensitive to the security issue because of the war in Ukraine, anthropologist Professor Vasil Garnizov said for the BNR.
