We will ask the European Commission to provide 130 million euros to equip the police force in the event of a serious migration crisis. This is what Prime Minister Boyko Borissov announced at the beginning of today’s Cabinet meeting.
Today, Borissov will participate in a conference call with his European colleagues, including the Presidents of the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Council.
We will ask for 130 million euros to equip the police force in the event of a serious migration crisis, if that ever happens. We’ll see if we can get immediate help from Germany to file in our request and wait two years, Boyko Borissov said.
Borissov also added that the Police prevented the illegal removal of 7,500 masks from the country last night.
Right before the Prime Minister’s speech, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences President Julian Revalski took the floor and announced that the Academy was developing a new model of activated carbon masks to improve their quality.
According to Revalski, scientists looked at different types of masks and found that the active carbon can be extracted from the pits of apricots that absorb bacteria. The development has received a 24-million-leva funding from the State and other European programs.
“There is no point in panicking; everything we do, we do it to keep the citizens calm”, the Prime Minister reiterated.
Minister of Education Krasimir Velchev announced today that a meeting would be held with disinfectant manufacturers so that schools and kindergartens would not be left exposed to danger. /ibna
