From the very beginning, it was announced that this measure (of hotel accommodation - no.) Is temporary, in order to give them time to calm down and get back on their feet ”.
Kalina Kostantinova, Deputy Prime Minister of Bulgaria: "All those who are in hotels and say they have nowhere to go will be temporarily housed in the buffer centers in Sarafovo and Elhovo."
