In April, Bulgaria will start receiving European funds for the protection of the EU's external border in the fight against illegal migration, President Rumen Radev announced after the summit in Brussels.

Bulgaria participates in and supports the European Peace Facility, the head of state pointed out. Thanks to this mechanism, the country will modernize its defense industry, but when it comes to the delivery of one million shell to Ukraine, this should be done in accordance with the specific features of the defense policy of each member state, the president added.

According to Radev, if a country expresses its desire, it concludes an agreement with the European Defense Agency. However, 10 countries do not participate in this initiative, including Bulgaria, Radev also said.
