The visiting Pope Francis urged us not to bring back anyone who knocked on the doors of our country. So he has taken a political stance in support of the migratory wave that destroys Europe. The leader of Volya and deputy chairman of the National Assembly Veselin Mareshki immediately reacted with a very strong argument against this appeal. He said he disagreed with the pope's words.
Head of State Rumen Radev, Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, National Assembly President Tsveta Karaiancheva and Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ekaterina Zaharieva sent condolences to their Russian counterparts after a tragic accident with a passenger plane at Sheremetyevo Airport.
Hours remain until Pope Francis' visit to Bulgaria. Last preparations are running in the places the Holy Father will visit. In Sofia some restrictions on traffic and parking in the center take effect.
Pope Francis will arrive at 10 am and will be welcomed at the airport by Prime Minister Boyko Borissov. The two of them will meet in four eyes.
