The prime minister and the grain producers should refrain from the harsh qualifications and threats, GERB leader Boyko Borissov told journalists in the Black sea resort of Albena. He added that problems are solved at the negotiating table and that Nikolai Denkov's mistake was in the qualifications he used. 

Earlier today, the prime minister called grain growers preparing protests over Ukrainian imports and refusing to negotiate with him "terrorists". 
Borissov also said the state should help the industry by providing them new markets to export wheat, corn and sunflower seeds and oil. At the same time, the former prime minister reminded the disgruntled grain growers that when he was at the helm of the country, the industry had received over 30 billion BGN (more than 15 bn EUR) and therefore it was not right for them to talk about overthrowing the government.
