Next week Bulgaria will receive 6 million euro from the European Commission in the context of constantly growing costs for protecting the country’s borders, Prime Minister Boyko Borissov said in Veliko Tarnovo. “I have talked not only with Chancellor Markel but with commissioners too to tell them that we are in dire straits trying to protect four borders, plus the Black Sea one. We have asked for everything – staff, equipment, ships, helicopters, thermal cameras etc. The budget has been stretched to the limit,”he said. In the meantime the party Gerb that he leads is still looking for a suitable candidate to run for president in this autumn’s elections. As president and commander-in-chief of the armed forces the candidate should have a potential to deal with fresh and growing challenges in Europe and the world, PM Boyko Borissov said.
