According to bourgas.ru, recently there is more and more information that illegal migrants are advancing in Bulgaria, and it is for this reason that a partial state of emergency has been declared in several regions of the country. This is reported by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Bulgaria.
The governor of Haskovo, engineer Minko Angelov, announced a partial disaster in the municipalities of Svilengrad and Topolovgrad. A similar measure is being introduced in the municipalities of Burgas and Yambol. It comes into force today and will be valid until 12:00 on September 29.
The reason is the difficult situation due to the increased migration pressure along the Bulgarian-Turkish border and the extremely poor condition of forest roads in the border areas.
According to the Armenian Minister of Internal Affairs, Ivan Demerdzhiev, who conducted an on-site inspection, 50% of the vehicles involved in the fight against illicit trafficking are constantly being repaired, which costs a lot of money.
The purpose of a partial state of emergency is also to prevent the death of people, to prevent significant damage to the property of the population and the economy of the country, as well as to prevent environmental consequences.
“In order to cope with the growing wave of migrants every day, we must have the conditions for the movement of our equipment in the field. This is currently not possible. We are ready to start repairing these roads within two weeks,” Demerdzhiev said.
Another measure against illegal traffic along the border will be a joint patrol of border police officers and foresters.
Demerdzhiev also commented on the check after the incident in Burgas, which killed two policemen. It’s not over yet, but next week there will be a personnel reshuffle at the top of local services.
